Review quote

Reviews for previous editions: "An important (book) because the author is clearly the leading force in international criminal law. The strength of the book is its excellent policy cases and analyses as well as its many annotations. An important guide for the legal profession to understand a complex area of the law." --BruceZagaris, International Legal Practitioner"This author needs no introduction to anyone versed in international law. The focus is on US practice but is not limited to just US sources for assessing the validity of executive action. Thus, one may glean a useful perspective of not only US practice ...but also expectations arising under International Humanitarian Law as well Any school contemplating an expansion in its international curriculum should consider offering an extradition elective conveniently premised on this coursebook. Practitioners would do well to include this text in their library of authoritative resources."--ASIL newsletter Reviews for previous editions: "An important (book) because the author is clearly the leading force in international criminal law.
