'The author should be congratulated on this production, which I recommend unreservedly, not only to international lawyers, but to students of international relations and strategic studies as well.' South African Yearbook of International Law
'... the second edition of Detter's work again gives an excellent up-to-date overview of the ius ad bellum as well as the ius in bello, thereby covering all major developments of the last decade in these fields of law. Even if one cannot always easily agree with the well-argued and coherent positions taken by the author, it is most certainly a great intellectual experience to read this stimulating book, which will be of fundamental value for everyone interested in this central area of international law.' German Yearbook of International Law
