About the Author

Dr Yoram Dinstein is the Yanowicz Professor of Human Rights at Tel Aviv University.


'Because of its clear structure, the frequent cross-references and the frequent use of examples and of cases - real and fictitious -, this legal textbook is a great resource for students studying the ius ad bellum. In particular, the examples facilitate an easy and speedy understanding of the theoretical issues. ... The book is also a good reference work for practitioners.'
