Abstract

Cherif Bassiouni’s second revised edition of Crimes Against Humanity in International Criminal Law gives a comprehensive legal and historical analysis of crimes against humanity covering its emergence in positive international criminal law, its legal development and its theoretical foundations. The book is not limited to crimes against humanity but also refers to and analyses various – related or unrelated – problems of current international criminal law. Thus, the reviewer is invited if not provoked to deal with the state of international criminal law in general, dedicating to the opus magnum not only a review but a more profound review essay.
