As the International Criminal Court ushers in a new era in the protection of human rights, William Schabas reviews the history of international criminal prosecution; the drafting of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court and the principles of its operation (including the scope of its jurisdiction and the procedural regime). This revised edition considers the court's start-up preparations, including election of judges and prosecutor. It also addresses the difficulties created by U.S. opposition, and analyzes the various measures taken by Washington to obstruct the Court.
