Damien van der Toorn, Australian Year Book of International Law 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.

William St-Michel, International Journal of Criminal Justice ...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.

Naomi Burke, The British Yearbook of International Law 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.

William St-Michel, Journal of International Criminal Justice 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.
