Editorial Reviews

"Unlike many edited collections, From Nuremberg to the Hague is a tightly structured book...Overall, in just 192 pages, From Nuremberg to the Hague offers a concise and thoughtful overview of the origins, current state, and unclear prospects for teh development of an international system for the prosecution and punishment of state crimes. As such, the book is an excellent prospect as a teaching tool, particularly for graduate and advanced undergraduate classes." - Raymond Michalowski, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff
