The Grammar of Criminal Law is a 3-volume work (Volumes 2 & 3 are Not Yet Published) that addresses the field of international and comparative criminal law, with its primary focus on the issues of international concern, ranging from genocide, to domestic efforts to combat terrorism, to torture, and to other international crimes.

This first volume is devoted to foundational issues. The Grammar of Criminal Law is unique in its systematic emphasis on the relationship between language and legal theory; there is no comparable comparative study of legal language. Written in the spirit of Fletchers classic Rethinking Criminal Law this work is essential reading in the field of international and comparative law.

  • Written by the author of the influential Rethinking Criminal Law
  • Addresses issues of international concern since 9/11
  • Presents original and provocative arguments destined to be highly debated
  • Essential reference work on international criminal law
