This is both a casebook of selected war crime decisions by various national and international tribunals in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries as well as a brief historical account of the geopolitical, diplomatic and military events surrounding them. The text is divided into six parts arranged in chronological order, beginning with the Hague Peace Conferences of 1899 and 1907 up to the Summer 2004 decisions by the Supreme Court of the United States, which dealt with transnational terrorism committed by United States’ citizens as well as the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detainees held under the authority of the Bush Administration.
War Crimes and War Crime Trials contains edited excerpts from forty-four judicial opinions embellished with a congeries of international, national, military and political documents that add context to the case law. The editors have included fairly extensive selections from some of the major materials that have surrounded subsequent war crime litigation. Also included are an epilogue by Michael Ignatieff; an eleven-entry appendix; a glossary containing over 200 words; a reference section of over 1,400 citations from a wide variety of legal, historical and international relations literature; and a name and subject index.
