Summary "International Criminal Law continues to provide a clear and concise introduction to both substantive international criminal law and international criminal procedure. The book offers a stimulating explanation of the fundamentals of these two branches of international criminal law and provides a theoretical framework to the rules, principles, concepts and legal constructs that are central to the subject. The book covers the various international courts and tribunals as well as mixed or hybrid courts or such national courts as the Iraqi High Tribunal. In addition to using the case law of the International Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda and of recent mixed tribunals, it uniquely draws upon national jurisprudence, in particular Belgian, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and US case law on international crimes."--BOOK JACKET.
