The Contemporary Law of Armed Conflict, Paperback

The Contemporary Law of Armed Conflict Paperback

Part of the Melland Schill Studies in International Law series


Green's The contemporary law of armed conflict has been acclaimed as one of the most significant works on the law of armed conflict to appear in recent years.

The first edition was adopted as a basic text by military institutions and educational establishments throughout the world and is among the most comprehensive and readable works on the subject. This new edition brings the work up to date, examining the significance of the World Court's Opinion on the legality of the nuclear weapon.

It also considers the importance of such matters as the laser weapon agreement, the mines treaty and the jurisprudence of the two war crimes tribunals, that for the former Yugoslavia as well as for Rwanda, and assesses the role of the proposed International Criminal Court as it may affect the law of armed conflict.

The book applies a practical as well as a theoretical approach, and draws on an extensive range of national and international practice.

It is thus an indispensable reference for the armed forces and government defence organizations, as well as academics and students interested in the modern law of war.
