Summary
  • "The issue of international crimes is highly topical in Asia, with still-resonant claims against the Japanese for war crimes, and deep schisms resulting from crimes in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and East Timor. Over the years, the region has hosted a succession of tribunals, from those held in Manila, Singapore and Tokyo after the Asia-Pacific War to those currently running in Dhaka and Phnom Penh. This book draws on extensive new research and offers the first comprehensive legal appraisal of the Asian trials. As well as the famous tribunals, it also considers lesser-known examples, such as the Dutch and Soviet trials of the Japanese, the Cambodian trial of the Khmer Rouge, and the Indonesian trials of their own military personnel. It focuses on their approach to the elements of international crimes, and their contribution to general theories of liability. In the process, this book challenges some orthodoxies about the development of international criminal law"--
  • "Some of the earliest rules intended to limit the conduct of hostilities can be traced back two and a half thousand years to Asia. The Chinese general Sun Tzu's The Art of War, written in the sixth century BC, is now a classic text of military strategy and tactics. But it is more than that. For alongside the discussions of attack and defence, the laying of traps and the burning of arsenals, it also explores commanders' responsibilities to both sovereigns and subordinates when engaged in warfare"--
