3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Maurizio Giuliano on June 1, 2001
Format: Paperback
Renowned Oxford scholar Adam Roberts, once again has been able to put together an outstanding work, in collecting documents on the laws and by-laws of international treaties and pacts, international declarations and conventions, etc. The book is a reference book. However, it is also an extremely interesting and useful tool (for those interested in those matters) to 'browse through' from time to time. It is a book that cannot miss from the library of any international law expert. While it may be needed from time to time for a quick consultation on specific points, it will also provide huge amounts of information on the legal insights of international conflict.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Roberta Arnold on July 18, 2000
Format: Paperback
Roberts and Guelff's "Documents on the laws of war" is a comprehensive collection of the treaties that created the body of armed conflict law and an essential tool for all students approaching this subject. The various documents are preceded by brief introductions which help even the most unacquainted user to orientate himself and to understand the origins, the context and the importance of the various sources. Even the practitioner will find it very useful, thanks to a detailed index at the end of book which allows to find the relevant legal material in few minutes. Last but not least, it contains the most recent treaties of this legal field, such as the 1999 2nd Hague Protocol for the Protection of Cultural Property in the event of armed conflict, or the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. I have recently used this book for my exam in international humanitarian law and it has certainly helped me to obtain a first class mark!

By A Customer on September 9, 2000
Format: Paperback
Adam Roberts and Richard Guelff have further refined their excellent text on humanitarian law. This book is an absolute must for students, academics, operations lawyers and politicians alike. Written in clear, concise and exact English 'Documents on the Laws of War' is a comprehensive collection of treaty and customary law. An operations lawyer could be be considered as 'negligent' if s/he failed to have this guide to the 'law of armed conflict' by his/her side at all times. Essential reading and reference.

I returned the book since I dropped the class. But I got the refund very quickly. I was very satisfied with Amazon's amazing service. Amzon is always my top choice for shopping.
