Summary: "This is the seminal textbook on the law of international armed conflict, written by the leading commentator on the subject. Focusing on issues arising in the course of hostilities between States, it explores lawful and unlawful combatants, war crimes, prohibited weapons, the distinction between combatants and civilians, legitimate military objectives, and the protection of the environment and cultural property. The title's exploration of the law as it applies to recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan underlines the topicality of the subject. Recent increased case law and treaties are explored. In addition, Professor Dinstein comments on the ICRC project on Direct Participation in Hostilities and the Harvard HPCR project on Air and Missile Welfare. In this new edition, the most complex fields in the subject are made more accessible to the student, while the academic rigour which was a hallmark of the first edition is retained"--Provided by publisher.
