International Criminal Law provides a comprehensive overview of an increasingly integral part of public international law. It complements the usual accounts of the substantive law of those international crimes tried to date before international criminal courts and of the institutional law ofthose courts with in-depth analyses of fundamental formal juridical concepts such as an "international crime" and an "international criminal court"; with detailed examinations of the many international crimes provided for by way of multilateral treaty and of the attendant obligations and rights ofstates parties; and with sustained attention to the implementation of international criminal law at the national level.
