Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
From the Nuremberg trials to the grisly campaign of "ethnic cleansing" in today's Bosnia, the world recognizes that certain actions are morally and legally unacceptable even in the midst of war. This book features extensive excerpts from treaties and charters that define the proper treatment of civilians, detainees, and POWs during wartime.
From the Nuremberg Trials to the grisly campaign of "ethnic cleansing" in today's Bosnia, the world recognizes that certain actions are morally and legally unacceptable even in the midst of war. But when is a nation justified in going to war? And how far can it go in inflicting damage on an enemy? What weapons can be developed and stockpiled? What is the proper treatment of civilians, detainees and POWs? "The Laws of War" features extensive excerpts from treaties and authoritative judgments to answer these and other questions. The result is a unique and comprehensive reference work on global problems ranging from terrorism and guerrilla warfare to the prosecution of war crimes. Documents include: The Charter of the United Nations, The Hague Convections, The Geneva Conventions and Protocols, The Nuremberg Judgment, Israeli commission of inquiry into the events at the refugee camps in Beirut and an investigation of alleged war crimes in the former Yugoslavia.
