This book celebrates the scholarship of Richard Baxter, former Judge of the International Court of Justice and former Professor of International Law at Harvard Law School. The volume brings together Professor Baxter's writings on the laws of war, on which he was one of the most influential scholars of the twentieth century. The collection of essays contained in this book once again makes his exceptional writings available to scholars and students in the field. His work remains timely and relevant to today's issues, and offers many analyses which have been borne out in subsequent years. It includes, amongst many wide-ranging topics within the laws of war, Baxter's studies of the Geneva Conventions, human rights in times of war, and the legal problems of international military command. Featuring a new introduction by Professor Detlev Vagts exploring the importance of Baxter's writings, and a Biographical Note by Judge Stephen Schwebel assessing Baxter's life, this book is essential reading for scholars and students of international humanitarian law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
These nineteen articles demonstrate both his [Richard Baxter] knowledge of and practical insights into that body of law as well as his continual efforts to improve it in ways that would both benefit war victims and be feasible and acceptable for military forces. By republishing these articles in this book, the editors and Oxford University Press have rendered a valuable service for everyone concerned with the further development of the laws of war subsequent to the Geneva Conventions of 1949.v * George H. Aldrich, Of the Board of Editors, American Journal of International Law *
