Helen M. Kinsella. The image before the weapon : a critical history of the distinction between combatant and civilian. Cornell University Press, c2011.

KZ6515.K56 2011

 

This book explores the evolution of the concept of the civilian and how it has been applied in warfare. The author discusses the definition and treatment of civilians in specific armed conflicts: the American Civil War and the U.S.-Indian Wars of the nineteenth century, and the civil wars of Guatemala and El Salvador in the 1980s.  Finally, she analyzes the two modern treaties most influential for the principle of distinction: the 1949 IV Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Times of War and the 1977 Protocols Additional to the 1949 Conventions, which for the first time formally defined the civilian within international law.
