contributors, the Handbook has a global, multi-disciplinary perspective on the place of law in war.
The Handbook consists of 32 chapters in seven parts. Part I provides the historical background of international law in armed conflict and sets out its contemporary challenges. Part II considers the relevant sources of international law. Part III describes the different legal regimes: land warfare, air warfare, maritime warfare, the law of occupation, the law applicable to peace operations, and the law of neutrality. Part IV introduces crucial concepts in humanitarian law: the use of
weapons, proportionality, the principle of distinction, and internal armed conflict. Part V looks at rights issues: life, torture, fair trials, the environment, economic, social and cultural rights, the protection of cultural property, and the human rights of members of the armed forces. Part VI covers key
issues in times of conflict: the use of force, terrorism, unlawful combatants, mercenaries, forced migration, and issues of gender. Part VII deals with accountability for war crimes, the responsibility of non-state actors, compensation before national courts, and, finally, transitional justice.

«The stated purpose of the Handbook is 'to provide grounding for those who would like to go further with their understanding of the law applicable in armed conflict.' The Handbook fulfils this purpose amply. Not only does it provide a comprehensive introduction to the law applicable in armed conflict, it also offers ample food for thought on the structure of the international legal system and the character of international legal obligations.»
«One remarkable feature of The Handbook is its exhaustiveness: it provides a comprehensive overview of the multiple rules and rights that come into play during an armed conflict. Furthermore, it clearly stems from the sum of the essays that the legal framework applicable to an armed conflict is not single-fold, but multifaceted. This handbook is a useful, up-to-date and comprehensive tool for scholars and practitioners, especially judges, dealing with the legal issues arising out of armed conflicts.»

«The book is also quite a fresh approach in an increasingly crowded market. The high rate of new publications on international humanitarian law and its associated topics continues, so it is important that entrants have something different to offer. The distinguishing features of this book are its multi-dimensional approach, the calibre of its contributors, and their willingness to offer no-holds-barred opinions on controversial topics. These features comfortably imbue the book with the requisite value-add... If this book were read cover to cover, the reader would be left with a comprehensive survey of the most important legal issues in the context of modern armed conflicts. It is therefore recommended to those who are seeking this advanced understanding from a multidimensional, critical perspective.»
