This 2003 collection of essays is based on five lectures organized jointly by Matrix Chambers of human rights lawyers and the Wiener Library between April and June 2002. Presented by leading experts in the field, this fascinating collection of papers examines the evolution of international criminal justice from its post World War II origins at Nuremberg through to the concrete proliferation of courts and tribunals with international criminal law jurisdictions based at The Hague today. Original and provocative, the lectures provide various stimulating perspectives on the subject of international criminal law. Topics include its corporate and historical dimension as well as a discussion of the International Criminal Court Statute and the role of the national courts. The volume offers a challenging insight into the future of international criminal legal system. This is an intelligent and thought-provoking book, accessible to anyone interested in international criminal law, from specialists to non-specialists alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'From Nuremberg to The Hague is notable for its content, but also for the crucial function it can serve within legal education ... In terms of content, the book covers an impressive array of issues in a concise fashion ... the content is engaging, informative and generally cohesive ... strongly recommended as an excellent introductory text in international criminal law ...'. German Law Journal
'The well-known authors and experts in the area provide a readable selection of essays on different aspects of international criminal justice ... It is written in an accessible manner and achieves the difficult task of both appealing to a non-academic audience and providing a useful text for students and those interested in this field in a university environment.' Common Law World Review
"Unlike many edited collections, From Nuremberg to the Hague is a tightly structured book...Overall, in just 192 pages, From Nuremberg to the Hague offers a concise and thoughtful overview of the origins, current state, and unclear prospects for teh development of an international system for the prosecution and punishment of state crimes. As such, the book is an excellent prospect as a teaching tool, particularly for graduate and advanced undergraduate classes." - Raymond Michalowski, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff
