Summary
"Treaties banning war crimes are universally applicable, universally ratified...and widely flouted. Yet today, more than any time since the Nuremberg trials, the spotlight is on war crimes and crimes against humanity. Public outcry over genocides in the early 1990s led to two United Nations war crimes tribunals and the statute for a permanent international criminal court. More recently, victims have begun taking their persecutors to court."--BOOK JACKET. "In this A-to-Z guide, journalists, television reporters, and photographers, together with leading legal scholars and military law experts define the major war crimes and key terms of law and take a fresh look at nine recent wars using the framework of international humanitarian law."--BOOK JACKET
