With its detailed assessment of the relevant international criminal law cases and doctrines and its careful mining of domestic law and theory (both English and German), the strengths of this book are those of traditional doctrinal legal scholarship: it is exhaustive, principled and directed towards a clear end, in this case, a more theorised approach to assigning individual responsibility for international crimes that are committed collectively. -- Arlie Loughnan * Current Issues in Criminal Justice vol 26 no 3 March 2015 *
Jain's book is invaluable... her work serves as an excellent companion for an introduction to the subject, both for the newly initiated as well as for the expert in international criminal law... Jain presents an abundance of information while venturing a critical approach that leads her to present her own theory. [The book] is infused with interesting and cautiously articulated ideas that invite us to think critically about its core concepts - perpetration, principal-accessory distinction, the basis for high-level perpetrator liability, and the peculiarities of international crimes that have to be accommodated in a truly international criminal law. -- Dafni Lima * The Cambridge Law Journal *
Jain has written a wonderful book - articulate, clear, exhaustively researched, challenging, timely, and above all with great potential for practical importance. Thoroughly recommended. -- Roger A Shiner * The Law and Politics Book Review, 25(4) *
...a relevant piece of legal scholarship...a thought-provoking read for any practitioner of international criminal law. -- Charlotte Pier * Journal of International Criminal Justice *
...Jain's book is essential reading not just for scholars and students of international criminal justice, but for anyone who cares about how domestic criminal law - in any system - treats principals and accessories. -- Jens David Ohlin * Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Online *
