The law that regulates armed conflicts is one of the oldest branches of international law, and yet continues to be one of the most dynamic areas of law today.

This book provides an accessible, scholarly, and up-to-date examination of international humanitarian law, offering a comprehensive and logical discussion and analysis of the law. The book contains detailed examples, extracts from relevant cases, useful discussion questions, and a recommended reading list for every chapter. Emerging trends in theory and practice of international humanitarian law are also explored, allowing for readers to build on their knowledge, and grapple with some of the biggest challenges facing the law of armed conflict in the twenty-first century.

This second edition offers new sections on issues like detention in non-international armed conflict, characterisation of non-international armed conflicts, expanded chapters on occupation and the protection of civilians, means and methods of warfare, and implementation, enforcement and accountability.

Industry Reviews
'This is one of the best primers around on the burgeoning field of international humanitarian law, useful for practitioners and students alike. It accurately and accessibly describes the law, deftly discusses uncertainties and controversies, is concise yet comprehensive, and traverses contemporary and historical challenges. Every law library worth its salt should hold a copy.' Ben Saul, Challis Chair of International Law, University of Sydney and Visiting Professor, Harvard University, Massachusetts
'Crawford and Pert have produced a well-organised, thorough, and highly readable overview of a complex body of law. It includes ample citations, penetrating discussion questions and helpful lists of further readings. This work can serve effectively either as a text for a basic international humanitarian law course or as a reference guide in support of a broader course in international law.' Brad R. Roth, Wayne State University
'Crawford and Pert have accomplished the seemingly impossible: produced a text on IHL that matches its concise explanations with real scholarly sophistication. It also deftly combines the history of the legal regulation of warfare with the most cutting-edge controversies of the field, including drones, targeted killings, and cyberwar. It will be as useful to students as it is to scholars, and has earned a permanent place on my desk. The second edition is even better than the first and incorporates many real-world events and the latest scholarly developments.' Jens David Ohlin, Cornell University, New York
