Editorial Reviews


'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

Book Description

In this second edition Detter further explores the changing legal context of modern warfare in the light of developments over the last decade. She reviews the status of international forces and the role and responsibilities of transnational organisations. This new edition covers the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CNTBT), the Landmine Convention (1987), and Laser Protocol. New topics include compensation for war crimes, information warfare, space weapons, war crimes tribunals, sanctions and interventions. This updated edition will be of use to students of international law, international relations and politics.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a student of international law, with a focus on International Humanitarian Law (or the Law of War), Detter's book was invaluable. It is hard to underrate her book. It serves as a solid, clear, legible guide.

If I could take only one book with me to do my work - this would be it.

Best buy.
