"Armed Conflicts and the Law is a book of impressive scope and depth. Ranging deftly across the spectrum of armed conflict and the law that governs it, this impressive work draws together new voices and world-renowned experts from the academy, military and the ICRC to examine the normative nuances of contemporary conflict. At the same time both scholarly and practical, Armed Conflicts and the Law will prove an invaluable resource for anyone dealing with the complex, synergistic, and evolving relationship between law and armed conflict." --Prof. Michael N. Schmitt, Director, Stockton Center for the Study of International Law, U.S. Naval War College *** This book offers a comprehensive yet concise take on the legal regulation of the various phases in the complex cycle of armed conflicts, from prevention to reconstruction, and covering everything in between, in particular, the vast body of rules laid down in current international humanitarian law. It combines a general theoretical approach with modern practice in order to offer a complete picture of the law before, during, and after warfare. Through a series of thematic chapters that logically follow from one to another, the book tackles core issues relating to the international regulation of armed conflicts, while situating them in a broader societal context. Particular attention is given to the emergence of the European Union as an increasingly important regional and global player in international peace and security. In combination with the broad scope and accessible nature of volume, the experience and ambition on display makes it a unique reference tool for students, scholars, practitioners, civil servants, diplomats, and humanitarian/human rights workers around the globe. It is complemented by, and a helpful companion to, Jan Wouters's and Philip De Man's Humanitarian and Security Law: A Compendium of International and European Instruments [ISBN 978 1 78068 051 4 (2012)]. (Series: International Law - Vol. 17) [Subject: International Law, EU Law, Humanitarian Law]
