Abstract

The Emergence of Historical Forensic Expertise is an instructive intellectual journey through the interplay of history and law whose relevance extends well beyond its basic framework of a historical study. A cross-disciplinary outlook between the historical science and legal practice adopted and effectively applied by Petrović can become an indispensable guide through the highest and lowest points of historical science as a forensic discipline in domestic and international criminal trials.

Keywords: forensic expertise, history, IMT, Nuremberg, Eichmann trial, expert witness, international criminal law
