International Criminal Law provides a clear account of the main substantive and procedural aspects of international criminal law. Adopting a combination of the classic common law and more theoretical approaches to the subject, it discusses:
- the historical evolution of international criminal law;
- the legal definition of the so-called core crimes (war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide) plus aggression, torture and terrorism;
- the forms and modes of criminal responsibility; and
- the main issues related to the prosecution and punishment of international crimes at the national and international level, including amnesties, statutes of limitations, and immunities.

The phases of international criminal proceedings are also covered, as well as the structure and functioning of all modern international criminal courts.
