Description

This comprehensive and versatile book covers both international criminal law and the application of US criminal law transnationally. It has chapters on each of the core crimes (aggression, genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes), as well as separate chapters on the international tribunals from Nuremberg on and the ICC. Other chapters treat modes of liability, defenses, crimes against women, and alternatives to criminal prosecution in post-conflict societies. Thus the book can be used for courses focusing entirely on international criminal law and accountability for core crimes. But it also covers US criminal law in transnational contexts, including money laundering, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and terrorism. In addition, it includes chapters on extradition, evidence gathering abroad, comparative criminal procedure and comparative sentencing, and US constitutional rights abroad. Introductory chapters on the nature of international criminal law, transnational jurisdiction, and the basics of public international law make the book accessible to students with no prior background.
