The author is a well-known and distinguished writer in the field of International Criminal law who has demonstrated both in his other writings, as well as in this book, a particular attention to specificity. The advantage of a single-author commentary is continuity and consistency in the approach and method of analysis. Because of his involvement in the negotiating stages of the statute and his continued following up on the developments which have occurred since 1998, this book is likely to give the reader a much clearer understanding as well as a more in-depth analysis of the ICC Statute. It is, therefore, likely to become the basic reference on the subject. ( M. Cherif Bassiouni)
Professor Schabas has long been recognised as a leading publicist in the field of International Criminal Law. His work has always been eagerly awaited by practitioners and academics alike. His latest Commentary does not disappoint. It references the travaux preparatoires of the Rome Statute, other commentaries, monographs and leading articles to which he adds to own, sometimes trenchant, views, insights and analysis. The work discloses a practical understanding of the application of the Rome Statute and the workings of the Court, as well as the essential academic perspective. The latest case law from the ICC is comprehensively cited and reviewed in a most accessible and readable manner. This work constitutes a major contribution to the area and will be welcomed by all involved in it. ( Karim Khan, Barrister and Editor of Archbold: International Criminal Courts)
Through this book Schabas provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of the articles of the Rome Statute. He combines an easily readable style with a complex analysis of the text of the article itself, the Elements of Crimes and the Rules of Procedure, relevant case law and opinions and writings of other scholars. Undoubtedly, this book (and other high-quality scholarly work) on the ICC Statute will be helpful to the practitioners at the Court in choosing the correct interpretation.

The International Criminal Court has been operational since mid-2003, following the entry into force of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court on 1 July 2002. The Rome Statute is among the most complex international treaties, a combination of public international law, international humanitarian law and criminal law, both international and domestic. The Commentary provides an article-by-article analysis of the Statute. Each of the 128 articles is presented accompanied by a bibliography of academic literature relevant to that provision, an overview of the drafting history of the provision and an analysis of the text. The analytical portion of each chapter draws upon relevant case law from the Court itself, as well as from other international and national criminal tribunals, academic commentary, and the related instruments such as the Elements of Crimes, the Rules of Procedure and Evidence and the Relationship Agreement with the United Nations. Written by a single author, the Commentary avoids duplication and inconsistency, providing a comprehensive presentation to assist those who must understand, interpret and apply the complex provisions of the Rome Statute.
