Part Three provides excerpts from some of the major international criminal tribunals and some of the applicable treaty law. Part Four discusses criminal procedure. Part Five contains a discussion of principles of punishment for international crimes and the consideration of the death penalty in punishment. This Book is a valuable contribution to new and dynamic aspects of the interplay between international human rights and international criminal law
