Reviews

'This book could not be more timely or important. International criminal law is one of the fastest growing areas of international law, with enormously important implications for practitioners and politicians alike. Here at last is a book that can serve both as a scholarly reference and a practitioners' manual, simplifying the complexities of multiple decisions from multiple tribunals and systematizing the law governing both individual criminal responsibility and the elements of international crimes.' Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University
'There is a lot of commendable critical engagement with the case law and literature and the praise by John Dugard in his foreword is certainly deserved. ... one of the more refreshing publications in the field that deserves a wide readership. I look forward to seeing the second volume.' International Criminal Law Review
'With the work of international criminal tribunals like the ones on Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia becoming more and more visible, the relatively new branch of law called 'international criminal law' - heralded by Nuremberg - has begun to come into its own. ... To spread knowledge and awareness of the new regime, Cambridge University Press has launched a practitioner library series on the subject and this is one of two volumes planned within that project. It covers forms of responsibility in international criminal law and deals with such matters as: joint criminal enterprise; indirect co-perpetration; superior responsibility; complicity; substantial effect; planning, instigating and ordering; and sentencing. ... those interested in the subject will find it an invaluable source of information.' Commonwealth Lawyer's Association and Contributors

"...The first volume looks at forms of responsibility in international law, i.e. the much-discussed joint criminal enterprise, superior responsibility, aiding and abetting, etc....There is a lot of commendable critical engagement with the case law and literature and the praise by John Duggard in his foreword (p. xvi) is certainly desrved....All in all, one of the more refreshing publications in the field that deserves a wide readership..." ---M. Bohlander, International Criminal Law Review 8 (2008) 699-712
"...intriguing collection...This collection of prominent assessments and proposals of the major methods for retaining biological diversity provides a page-turning summary of the heart of today's critical mass. It is superbly written and edited. Its substantive core is intelligently supported by useful footnoting, written in support of a quite readable text...a must for all university (and private) environmental libraries. Politicians, academicians, and all others--will hopefully employ perspectives provided by this telling critique of the need to pursue biological diversity." --ASIL Newsletter [ISSUE #39: May 2009]
"The International Criminal Law Practitioner Library will find its way onto the bookshelves of many practitioners and will undoubtedly serve as the first stop for quick and reliable answers to the numerous issues that arise at trial.... It will remain an extremely valuable resource for those who practice criminal law at the international level." - Daryl A. Mundis, Journal of International Criminal Justice
