From the Publisher"A product of considerable scholarship...distills important lessons for the conduct of international criminal trials..."
—James Upcher, Australian Book Review
"This is a definitive appraisal of the Milosevic trial and the future of international war crimes proceedings...Every war crimes tribunal prosecutor, defense counsel, and judge should have a copy of Dr. Boas's book on his or her desk, as it is essential reading for those involved in complex international criminal trials."
—Michael P. Scharf, Professor of Law, Case Western Reserve University, School of Law
"[...] The recent transfer of Radovan Karadzic to the ICTY and his forthcoming trial there make boas's book especially relevant and important. The Milošević Trial will interest anyone concerned with management of complex litigation in international criminal proceedings. [...] The author succinctly summarizes the trial's procedural history, [...] As valuable as this history is, however, what makes it so important are the conclusions that boas reaches and his recommendations for change, as well as the rich range of materials that he draws upon in reaching those conclusions. [...] Boas has, in effect, written two books in one. The first is a concise, critical, insider's story of the Milošević case. [...] The second book is more interesting of the two. By applying the lessons learned from the Milošević case, Boas makes compelling arguments for improving the way that complex international criminal proceedings are conducted. His ideas are, for the most part, well supported by examples from the ICTY. Anyone working in (or simply interested in) the rapidly growing field of international criminal law will find many thoughtful suggestions here."
—Daryl A. Mundis, Office of the Prosecutor, International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, The American Journal of International Law
"...The Milošević Trial provides an excellent elaboration of the procedural parameters within which prosecutorial and judicial decisions must be made, and provides compelling analysis on the fairness and expeditiousness of various options. Boas draws on a deep and expansive knowledge of international criminal procedure, and for international criminal lawyers and judges the book is a valuable resource..."
