I'm still reading the book. What I can say so far is: the history of international criminal law is very interesting, the basic notions and principles are well explained, the Rome Statute is included for quick reference, the language is excellent.

I was ultimatley impressed by this of the piece of literature on ICC. As a researcher I found the data contained answered all my questions. It is reader friendly, clear and concise. It answers all readers/researchers/students want to know abour ICC. From beginning to end it transports you to the logical at the end of each chapter, not alone at the end of the book. It's revaeling and delves into every abyss, crevass and argument before the ICC, It enlightens one's views of Internation Law, its development and where we are today in term of dealing with internatioinal conflicts. I would recommended to anyone who is interested in this field or a good intellectual week-end read.International conflicts to some extent effect us all as we live in a global village governed by internatiional Law, UN and EU Law. To bring your concept of ICC up to speed I recommend this unique piece of international literature. Professor William Schabas created a gem in this edition!
