About the Book

Bringing a wealth of experience and insight to a rapidly emerging field of inquiry, International and Transnational Criminal Law offers four-part coverage, dynamic perspective, and historical depth. Ideal for the international criminal law course and well suited to courses on transnational law and international law, this casebook carefully examines procedural issues, transnational crimes, and international crimes.

Look for these key features:
Updated throughout to reflect relevant recent Supreme Court and lower court decisions, amended statutes, developments in treaty law, and current scholarship
Incorporated recent decisions of the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, and the ad hoc and hybrid tribunals, particularly regarding the elements of international crimes, sentencing norms, and the prosecutor’s role
Expanded references to non-U.S.sources, such as the United Kingdom’s Terrorism Act of 2006 and its Bribery Act of 2010
Sharpened discussion of jurisdictional as well as extradition and evidence gathering
Extended the terrorism chapter by, inter alia, including the Supreme Court’s decision in Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project and the Lebanon Tribunal’s definition of terrorism; adding materials on the (de)listing of designated foreign terrorist organizations; and updating the materials on military commissions
