Summary
"The greatly expanded and enhanced second edition of [this book] provides an authoritative and accessible global history of war crimes and the laws of war. Tracing human efforts to limit warfare, from codes of war in antiquity designed to maintain a religiously conceived cosmic order to the gradual use in the modern age of the criminal trial as a means of enforcing universal humanitarian norms, Michael Bryant's book is a masterful account of the subject. Five brand new chapters are included that reinforce the geographical, chronological, historiographical and conceptual dimensions of the book"--
