Item description for Practice and Procedure of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia:With Selected Materials from the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda by John Ackerman...
This volume is designed to provide a quick yet comprehensive reference to the jurisprudence of both the ICTY and to some extent, the ICTR. It goes significantly beyond the Judgements of the Tribunal into the Orders and Decisions of the Trial and Appeals Chambers. The book is organized by sections, according to each Article of the Statute and Rule of procedure and evidence. Following the text of the Article or Rule, there is a Commentary section, where appropriate and a digest of Judgements, Decisions and Orders of the Appeals Chamber and the Trial Chambers. Materials will be found in the book from the beginning of the operation of the ICTY through the Furundzija Appeals Judgement and the amendments to the Rules in July 2000.

Very Poor Jan 8, 2003
This book is very poor indeed. It is very badly written, inaccurate, poorly organised and woefully out of date.
A must-have book Apr 12, 2001
This book is a bible for lawyers who wish to practice international criminal law. It is the only text which provides summaries of the precedents of the ICTY and ICTR. The authors organize and index the book well, and their own commentaries into the decisions provide the insight of experienced trial lawyers in these courts. It would be malpractice for any lawyer to set foot in these courts without Ackerman and O'Sullivan's book.
The Academic's Perspective Dec 19, 2000
Being familiar with the importance of the ICTY to the growth of international criminal law, I am pleased to see a book which details the actual functioning of such a Tribunal through its case law. To be able to easily access information regarding the Statute and the Rules of Procedure as it has been laid out by Ackerman and O'Sullivan places this volume head and shoulders above its competition.
Those who teach in the domains of internatonal criminal law or humanitarian law would be remisted from not including this volume on their required reading list. It provides students with an in-depth understanding of the first court to try international criminals since Nuremburg. This effort is a must for any law library.

Incredible Book Dec 12, 2000
I have been involved with the ICTY for several years now.There has been a crying need for this book. Finally, someone has puttogether the jurisprudence of the tribunal in a useable andcomprehensive format. This is a truly fantastic piece of writing.Ackerman and O'Sullivan have extensive experience at the tribunalwhich contributes greatly to this book...Academics and practitionersand governments would do very well to make this book an important partof their library.
