International Criminal Law provides a clear account of the principles governing international crimes and an outline of international criminal trials. Adopting a combination of the classic common law and more theoretical approaches to the subject, it expounds the fundamentals of both substantive and procedural international criminal law, providing a theoretical framework to all the rules, principles, concepts, and legal constructs key to the subject.
Cassese guides the reader through a vast array of cases and materials from a number of jurisdictions, providing thought-provoking analysis that brings the political and human contexts to the fore. All the international courts and tribunals, as well as mixed courts or such national courts as the Iraqi Special Tribunal, are fully covered, both as regards their structure, functioning and proceedings and as far as their case law is concerned. As one of the leading experts in the field, Cassese draws on his academic expertise and practical experience - as the former president of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia - to provide a uniquely personal perspective that brings the subject to life.
Online Resource Centre A wealth of bibliographical references as well as major legal documents relevant to the subject are made available on the book's accompanying website.
