Format: Paperback
This book is a must for anyone involved in IHL or the LOAC, simply because it is a compilation of all the major conventions in this area of law. It is great for quick-reference and saves having to carry around multiple books containing different conventions... this one probably contains all the ones you need. Each convention also begins with a couple of pages on the history and purpose of the convention.

Unfortunately, as it was published in 2000, it is now getting a little old. As each convention is concluded with citation information (such as the UNTS location, date of adoption etc), several treaties that were listed as "not yet in force" are now actually active. Once again, I had to resort to the UN Docs Service to pull up current citation information.

Otherwise, it is an amazing resource and a must for any IHL lawyer or student.

Quite simply this is a must have text for anyone with an interest in the law of armed conflict. It contains the majority of the treaties and agreements you will need in practice in a single volume that is easy to navigate.

I must also commend Amazon on the speed of delivery to me when I was overseas in a conflict zone.

4.0 out of 5 stars An essential tool for all humanitarian law students 18 July 2000
By Roberta Arnold - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Roberts and Guelff's "Documents on the laws of war" is a comprehensive collection of the treaties that created the body of armed conflict law and an essential tool for all students approaching this subject. The various documents are preceded by brief introductions which help even the most unacquainted user to orientate himself and to understand the origins, the context and the importance of the various sources. Even the practitioner will find it very useful, thanks to a detailed index at the end of book which allows to find the relevant legal material in few minutes. Last but not least, it contains the most recent treaties of this legal field, such as the 1999 2nd Hague Protocol for the Protection of Cultural Property in the event of armed conflict, or the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. I have recently used this book for my exam in international humanitarian law and it has certainly helped me to obtain a first class mark!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best collection of documents on this subjects 2 Jun. 2001
By Maurizio Giuliano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Renowned Oxford scholar Adam Roberts, once again has been able to put together an outstanding work, in collecting documents on the laws and by-laws of international treaties and pacts, international declarations and conventions, etc. The book is a reference book. However, it is also an extremely interesting and useful tool (for those interested in those matters) to 'browse through' from time to time. It is a book that cannot miss from the library of any international law expert. While it may be needed from time to time for a quick consultation on specific points, it will also provide huge amounts of information on the legal insights of international conflict.
