'An important book that is not just historical or doctrinal, but that offers an analytically structured account of the negotiation processes that produced the international legal regime covering internal armed conflict. Anyone interested in the IL/IR nexus, in international humanitarian law, or in international legal development will be richly rewarded by reading this book.' Wayne Sandholtz, John A. McCone Chair in International Relations, University of Southern California
'Henry Lovat shines light on the development of the law as a process of intertwined political and legal contestation in which moral authority is at least as important as material power in determining outcomes.' Rachel Kerr, King's College London
'In this thoughtful, original study, Henry Lovat breaks new analytical ground, combining lenses from history, international law, and international relations theories to cast new light on how civil wars came to be regulated by the 1949 Geneva Conventions, their 1977 Additional Protocols, and the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.' Harold Hongju Koh, Sterling Professor of International Law, Yale University, Legal Adviser, US Department of State (2009-13); Assistant US Secretary of State for Democracy Human Rights and Labor (1998-2001)
