This unique new work of reference traces the origins of the modern laws of warfare from the earliest times to the present day.

Relying on written records from as far back as 2400 BC, and using sources ranging from the Bible to Security Council Resolutions, the author pieces together the history of a subject which is almost as old as civilisation itself.

The author shows that as long as humanity has been waging wars it has also been trying to find ways of legitimising different forms of combatants and ascribing rules to them, protecting civilians who are either inadvertently or intentionally caught up between them, and controlling the use of particular classes of weapons that may be used in times of conflict.

Thus, this work is divided into three substantial parts:-

  • Volume 1 on the laws affecting combatants and captives;
  • Volume 2 on civilians;
  • Volume 3 on the law of arms control.
As a work of reference this set of three books is unrivalled, and will be of immense benefit to scholars and practitioners researching and advising on the laws of warfare. It also tells a story which throws fascinating new light on the history of international law and on the history of warfare itself.
