Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0814716261, Hardcover)

The trial of Slobodan Milosevic represents a singular moment in modern history. For the first time a former head of state must answer charges before an International Tribunal for the commission of war crimes.

Taking as its starting point the existing canon of international law and conventions governing actions during war, Indictment at the Hague, represents the most detailed examination of the conduct of the Serbian authorities and the individual responsibility of senior members of its leadership for war crimes.

Citing the precedent of the Nuremberg trials, Cigar and Williams carefully link conscious decisions and specific deeds undertaken by the Milosevic regime that violated the protections guaranteed to civilian populations in war. The volume reproduces a collection of key documents from the Hague Tribunal, U.N. Commissions, and Human Rights Organizations which appear in print together for the first time. Indictment at the Hague is essential for all those concerned with the difficult task of sustaining the Geneva and Hague Conventions, and those who wish to understand how in the era of "never again" the crimes of war continue to challenge the instruments of international law.
