Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The different chapters of the book to be reviewed have been written by some of the key players in the negotiations mapping out a very detailed picture of the different issues the drafters were confronted with. [T]he book is a very significant addition to the already existing literature on the International Criminal Court.'
Max Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law, 4 (2000).
'This collection of commentaries may prove particularly useful to those seeking to analyze current and future developments related to the Statute and the ICC.'
Journal of International Law and Politics, 32:3.
'Dr Lee is to be congratulated for having assembled contributors from many of the key players involved with the conclusion and adoption of the Rome Statute. The insights conveyed by these authors will no doubt establish this excellent book as essential reading for anyone interested in the establishment and future operation of this important judicial institution.'
International and Comparative Law Quarterly, 49 (October 2000).
