This text on war crimes asks whether we are any closer to achieving the promise of Nuremberg.;Interest in the law of war crimes has resurged in the wake of several recent tragedies, including genocide in Rwanda, ethnic cleansing in the former Yugoslavia, and Pol Pot's killing fields in Cambodia. The Law of War Crimes is an important contribution in this field of renewed significance for international and domestic law and brings together a group of leading scholars and practitioners in international criminal law.;In two introductory chapters, the editors discuss the philosophical and political implications of war crimes jurisprudence as well as the surprisingly rich and unexpected historical record of previous war crimes trials. A sequence of four chapters follows in which legislative and judicial approaches to war crimes in national settings are explored. The concluding essays focus on war crimes regimes in international law. In this section, the authors anticipate future developments, such as the Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and the proposed Permanent International Criminal Court, and revisit the Nuremberg and Tokyo war crimes trials from a contemporary perspective.
