'Since there is no other book like this one, it is an impressive tour de force simply to have digested all of the cases from not one, but three, international tribunals, presenting them in a readable guide for scholars and perhaps, more importantly, for the new International Criminal Court, which has yet to hear its first case."
-- Christina Cerna, Organizations of American States
"With The UN International Criminal Tribunals, a 700-page tome, William Schabas has contributed another major work to the cannon of international law scholarship. [...]-this current volume is apt to become the definitive treatise on the so-called ad hoc tribunals created under the auspices of the United Nations. The UN International Criminal Tribunals has many strengths. [...] First, the scope of The UN International Criminal Tribunals is magisterial, and its organization immediately persuadive. [...] Second, Schabas sets out admirably (for first time students of international criminal law and perhaps even for some scholars and practitioners) the different forms of participation that have made an appearance in the jurisprudence of the ad hoc tribunals, from commission to omission, to aiding and abetting, to superior responsibility, and finally to joint criminal enterprise. [...] Third, I find especially compelling the chapters revolving around investigation and pretrial procedure (chapter 10), trial and posttrial procedure (chapter 11), and the rules of evidence (chapter 12) at the ICTY, ICTR, and SCSL. Fourth, as a function of the above, The UN International Criminal Tribunals will appeal to a number of different audiences."
--Jens Meierhenrich, Harvard University, The American Journal of International Law
A guide to the law that applies in the three international criminal tribunals, for the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda and Sierra Leone, set up by the United Nations during the period 1993 to 2002. This book attempts to analyse and present such materials in a comprehensive manner.
