The contribution of the ad hoc Tribunals to international criminal law and international justice has been manifold, both academically and historically, and they will continue to influence the findings and decisions of many other courts (both domestic and international), and to provoke discussion for many years to Come. This volume provides the first comprehensive analysis of the law of international crimes as applied by the ad hoc tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. International Crimes and the Ad Hoc Tribunals examines the legal and historical significance of some of the most important judicial developments to occur in the last 50 years in international criminal law. It states the law of the Tribunals, and provides concrete illustrations of the application of the law to a variety of criminal cases, providing a comprehensive and detailed analysis of this voluminous body of jurisprudence. The primary focus is on the jurisdiction ratione materiae of the Tribunals: the definition and application of the law of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. However, it also examines the Tribunals' jurisdiction ratione personae, insofar as this enables a full understanding of the law of crimes (for instance, in relation to forms of criminal liability).

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mettraux has produced an essential volume that belongs on every international criminal law bookshelf. His grasp of the material is unequalled, a wonderful blend of knowledge that comes from years of working inside the system, but always presented with a welcome degree of scholarly detachment. The analysis is full of insights, some of them controversial and provocative. The book is beautifully written, and packed with helpful references. * Professor William A. Schabas, Director of the Irish Centre for Human Rights at the National University of Ireland *
A masterful exposition of the ICTY and ICTR case law. The wealth of jurisprudential material is extremely well organized and set out clearly and concisely. An indispensable tool for both practitioners and scholars. * Professor Antonio Cassese, Professor of International Law, Florence University, Former President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia *
an essential reference work for both practitioners and anyone else with an interest in understanding the subject of international criminal law. * Bing Bing Jia, International Criminal Law Review *
The value of the book is enhanced by the author's considerable experience as Associate Legal Officer of the ICTY who now often acts as Defence Counsel. Such insight into the workings of the tribunals is rare and the reader is constantly impressed by meticulous references to case law. Beautifully produced ... this book is a welcome addition to the current literature on international law. * Ingrid Detier, International Affairs *
