It takes a thematic approach to take account of the changes in international law since 1949, in particular the growth of international criminal and human rights law.

Katharine Fortin, Armed Groups and International Law One of the outstanding qualities of the book, is that despite being huge (nearly 1600-pages), The 1949 Geneva Conventions: A Commentary is surprisingly accessible...I am hugely impressed by this volume which is a staggering editorial achievement, bringing together some of the finest IHL scholarship around. There is no doubt in my mind that it will become a classic text for students and researchers.
