4.0 out of 5 stars A Basic Introduction to the Law of International Armed Conflict, February 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Conduct of Hostilities under the Law of International Armed Conflict (Paperback)
If you want to know whether the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group Seal Team Six's attack of the compound in Pakistan that led to the death of Osama bid Laden is a lawful action or a violation of international law, you may find this book helpful as an introduction to a highly complicated area of public international law. The author is a well-known professor in this subject matter and has taught at various prestigious institutions of higher education, including U.S. Naval War College, New York Univeristy, Tel-Aviv University, and the University of Toronto. With a little over 300 pages, the book is divided into nine chapters that discuss topics including Lawful Combatancy, Prohibited Weapons, Lawful Targets of Attack, Protection from Attack of Civilians and Civilian Objects, Protection of the Environment, Special Methods of Warefare, and War Crimes, Orders, Command Resposnibility and Defenses. The book also includes over 1,800 footnotes and legal citations for anyone who want to explore further. It is a great introduction to the Laws of International Armed Conflicts for young LL.M. students, lawyers, journalists, and anyone who is interested in learning more about the complicated legal theories that underlines the headlines of the media of our time. A great read that makes you want to read more and start a discussion with your colleagues or neighbors.
