Editorial Reviews

Review

'This book, to the best of the knowledge of this reviewer, is the first comprehensive publication on the trial proceedings of the International Criminal Court (ICC), the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR). [...] The main contribution of this well written and excellently researched study is its emphasis on the importance of a fair trial for the suspect/accused. [...] In conclusion, this book can be highly recommended: Karin Calvo-Goller wrote a refreshing, unprecedented analysis of the ICC's procedural system.' Kai Ambos in Criminal Law Forum, 2006 'I have been reading several recent books on international criminal law and procedure, and I rate this one as indispensable. The reader will find suggested answers to almost any procedural issue that might arise in ICC proceedings. More significantly, however, the reader will find critical insights.For example, most large scale ICTY, ICTY and ICC trials involve extensive use of summary evidence and expert testimony to establish basic facts. Dr. Calvo-Goller questions the fairness of over-reliance on this sort of evidence, because the defense may not have a fair chance to meet it by conducting independent investigation and because the factual basis for an expert or summary conclusion cannot effectively be reached by cross-examination. As a lawyer who has faced this very problem, I was impressed by her grasp of the practical and theoretical issues. In short, this is an essential book, and deserves a place close at hand for those concerned with these issues.' Michael E. Tigar, Research Professor of Law, American University, Washington College of Law, Visiting Professor of Law, Duke Law School, Professeur Invite, Faculte de droit, Universite Paul Cezanne.

I've read many many books in my day. In fact, I've even authored a few, but this novel is absolutely stunning. The prose flow like honey and around 95 hours into the book I could not dam the tears as they streamed from my eyes. I recommend this wondrous journey through legality and legal abuse to anyone who wants to read material already recorded and detailed in so many other sources. Truly magnificent rebinding of previously published ideas and work!

Format: Hardcover
An absolutely fascinating insider's story of how the court systems work. The author's back-story, especially with regard to filing petty lawsuits in non-jurisdictional venues, warrants any prospective reader's attention. All in all, a feather in the author's cap, and I trust that she will get the attention that she deserves. I sit in fervent anticipation of the sequel.
