This outstanding book is designed to give the reader an authoritative understanding over International Humanitarian Law. The well-written opening chapter traces the historical development of International Humanitarian Law from ancient times to our time, and examines its nature, scope and purpose. The book shows the relationship between International Humanitarian Law with Public International Law, International Criminal Law and International Human Rights Law. Topics examined include the concept of combatant; means and methods of warfare; protection of civilians, wounded, sick and shipwrecked, prisoners of war; protection of the natural environment in time of armed conflict; individual criminal responsibility for violation of International Humanitarian Law; non-international armed conflicts; rebel’s status in non-international armed conflict; humanitarian intervention; implementation of International Humanitarian Law; and effective enforcement of International Humanitarian Law. The contributors’ comprehensive knowledge of the subjects is reflected even by a cursory reading of the book. This book would be a valuable contribution to the scarce literature on the subject. This lucidly written and timely book will immensely help students, teachers, lawyers, judges, scholars, government official, officials of international humanitarian institutions, human rights activists, military personnel, and anyone seeking to understand this area of law.
