about this book

Edited and with an Introduction and Commentary by W. Michael Reisman and Chris T. Antoniou, The Laws of  War contains extensive excerpts from treaties and authoritative judgments, including the Charter of the United Nations, the Geneva and Hague Conventions and Protocols, the Covenant of the League of Nations, and many other documents, ranging from The United States v. William L. Calley, Jr. and the Israeli Commission of Inquiry report into the events at the Beirut refugee camps, to an investigation of alleged war crimes in the former Yugoslavia. The result is a unique and indispensable reference work on global problems ranging from terrorism and guerrilla warfare to the prosecution of war crimes.
