The Laws of Armed Conflicts: A Collection of Conventions, Resolutions, and Other Documents


The long-awaited fourth edition of this classic collection reproduces the texts of conventions, draft conventions and resolutions on the law of armed conflicts which have been adopted since the codification movement started in the nineteenth century. Since the first edition appeared in 1973, and subsequent revised and completed editions in 1981and 1988 and a French edition in 1996, the number of texts has increased, due to the rapid development of this branch of international law. In order to give the reader access to all conventions and similar texts adopted since the nineteenth century, older conventions that in the course of time were replaced by newer ones (such as the Geneva Conventions adopted before 1949) have also been reproduced. All texts are introduced by a short explanatory note. A list of signatures, ratifications and accessions, as well as the texts of reservations of individual states, are attached to each convention. The book is fully indexed.
