This text deals with a specialized area of international law relating to prisoners, especially as regards the worst abuses to which they may be subject, such as torture, enforced disappearance and summary and arbitrary executions, as well as capital and corporal punishment. It is mainly a study in international human rights law, but also draws on international humanitarian law and international criminal law. The first edition charted this subject and this edition reflects the extensive legal and institutional developments that have taken place since 1986.;This book is intended for academic lawyers; political scientists; officials responsible for the administration of justice; senior police; staff of human rights organizations; and some practitioners.
