The scholarly significance of the book is understated by the use of the word "guide" in the title. . . . This is much more than a guide to the Hague Tribunal. It is an in-depth treatment of the creation and functioning of this important new court.
Lt. Col. H. Wayne Elliott, The Journal
of National Security Law, Vol. 1, No. 1
This definitive "insider's view" of the Statute and its Rules of Procedure and Evidence takes into account existing international law and practice, the proposals submitted by states and organizations, and the views expressed by members of the Security Council in adopting the Statute. The text also places the International Tribunal in its historical context as the first international criminal tribunal created since the 1945 Nuremberg and Tokyo Tribunals, and as a major achievement in the UN's long-standing project of an international regime of criminal law.
