Abstract

This Commentary on the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, the most comprehensive guide in the field of international criminal law first time published in 1999 and later twice re-edited by distinguished scholar and professor Otto Triffterer, has been since that time considered as the most significant scientific work on the treaty that established the new permanent system of international criminal justice. This book has been, and still is, encyclopedic companion among the existing literature in all heights and depths of analysis and its overall coverage of international criminal law following the Rome Statute. Commentary joined by professor Kai Ambos in the third edition contains a detailed article-by-article doctrinal interpretation of the International Criminal Court Statute and reflects the latest achievements in the theory and practice of international criminal law. There is a very impressive list of contributors who in their chapters covered a vast range of issues in international criminal law and justice. The book is an indispensable resource for all those interested in this field of law and legal process.
