Carsten Stahn. 

The law and practice of international territorial administration : Versailles to Iraq and beyond.  Cambridge University Press, 2008.

KZ3673.S73 2008

 

This book analyses the genesis and law and practice of international territorial administration from the Treaty of Versailles to contemporary engagements such as the conflict in Iraq.  While including the background, legal framework and practice of international territorial administration, the book concentrated its discussion on the status of the territory under administration, the status and accountability of administering authorities, the exercise of regulatory powers by international administrations, and the relationship between international and domestic actors.

 

 

Larry May. 

Aggression and crimes against peaceCambridge University Press, 2008.

KZ6355.M39 2008

 

Winner of the International Association of Penal Law Book of the Year Award 2008, this book presents a normative grounding for the crime of aggression that is similar to that for crimes against humanity and war crimes.  The author combines philosophical and legal arguments with extensive discussion of cases, especially from Nuremberg, to provide original account of how to understand elements of crime of aggression in international law.
