A thorough introduction to the laws of war, the savagery of war crimes, and the International system that demands justice. Yugoslavia, Rwanda, and Kosovo. Sierra Leone, East Timor, and Cambodia. The atrocities that occurred in these war-ravaged nations are horrifying issues of global concern. How can there be peace in a nation emerging from war unless there's some kind of justice for the victims, the survivors, and the perpetrators? How do you speak of the unspeakable and defend the indefensible? War Crimes and Justice: A Reference Handbook throughly examines the laws of war and how the world community handles the monstrous brutalities of war through the international justice system. Highlighted are 20th century war crimes and trials including Yugoslavia, Kosovo, and the Kerry incident in Vietnam. Also covered are the four international tribunals established to punish violators in Nuremberg, Tokyo, Yugoslavia, and Rwanda. Pulitzer Prize-nominated author Howard Ball discusses those who committed unspeakable acts during war, others who sought justice for victims, and case studies portraying both victims and perpetrators.

Significant treaties and conventions are explored, as well as all the options available to nations emerging from the throes of bloody civil wars to ensure peace with justice. - Coverage of key people and trials including World War II, Vietnam, and the recent war in Kosovo - 10 Maps of key regions where war crimes have occurred
