There is no doubt that international law was of major importance during the Gulf conflict of 1990-91. Military and other actions were repeatedly justified through reference to international law, and disputes about interpretation were frequent. This book provides a definitive legal analysis of the conflict, with reference both to international and to English law. Some have been tempted to argue that international law is an ineffective means of controlling the activities of a state and its armed forces from the fact that there were no war crimes trials of the leaders of Iraq, or of any other state. International law does, however, provide a set of norms either (a) agreed to by individual states through the ratification of, or accession to, a treaty, or (b) which apply to all states by the operation of customary international law and other secondary sources. This book determines these norms in order to judge the manner in which individual states recognized the binding nature of them in the conduct of their operations. The contributors include lawyers from each of the three British armed services.

Bringing together the law of armed conflict governing the use of weapons into a single volume, the fully updated Second Edition of Weapons and the Law of Armed Conflict interprets these rules and discusses the factors influencing future developments in weapons law. After relating the historical evolution of weapons law, the book discusses the important customary principles that are the foundation of the subject, and provides a condensed account of the law that exists on the use of weapons. The treaties and customary rules applying to particular categories of weapon are thereafter listed and explained article by article and rule by rule in a series of chapters. Having stated the law as it is, the book then explores the way in which this dynamic field of international law develops in the light of various influences. The legal review of weapons is discussed, both from the perspective of how such reviews should be undertaken and how such a system should be established. Having stated the law as it is, the book then investigates the way in which this dynamic field of international law develops in the light of various influences. In the final chapter, the prospects for future rule change are considered. This Second Edition includes a discussion of new treaty law on expanding bullets, the arms trade, and norms in relation to biological and chemical weapons. It also analyses the International Manuals on air and missile warfare law and on cyber warfare law, the challenges posed by 'lethal autonomous weapon systems', and developments in the field of information and telecommunications otherwise known as cyber activities.

The third edition of Ingrid Detter's authoritative work explores the changing legal context of modern warfare in light of events over the last decade. The new edition covers post 9/11 events and the resulting changes in the ethos of war. It analyses the role of military companies sometimes authorised by States to act in war-like situations and examines what their legitimacy means for international society. The edition also discusses certain 'intrinsic' rules in the Law of War, such as rules giving individuals the right to be spared genocide, torture, slavery and, at least nowadays, apartheid and assure them basic democratic rights.

Many assume that in international politics, and especially in war, "anything goes." Sherman famously declared war "is all hell." The implication behind the maxim is that in war there is no order, only chaos; no mercy, only cruelty; no restraint, only suffering. Ward Thomas finds that this "anything goes" view is demonstrably wrong. It neither reflects how most people talk about the use of force in international relations nor describes the way national leaders actually use military force. Events such as those in Europe during World War II, in the Persian Gulf War, and in Kosovo cannot be understood, he argues, until we realize that state behavior, even during wartime, is shaped by common understandings about what is ethically acceptable and unacceptable. Thomas makes extensive use of two cases—the assassination of foreign leaders and the aerial bombardment of civilians—to trace the relative influence of norms and interests. His insistence on interconnections between ethical principle and material power leads to a revised understanding of the role of normative factors in foreign policy and the ways in which power and interest shape the international system.

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries Kuwait was the home of a prosperous people, dependent largely on trading, pearling and fishing. The country successfully maintained independence from the Ottomans and other powers through the help of close treaty relations with Britain. The first oil concessions in 1934 and the development of the oil industry transformed the country's character and future, a structure later altered by the Gulf War. This bibliography covers all aspects of Kuwait's history and cultural heritage, and the country's significance in both the Gulf and the world arena. Particular attention is paid to the oil industry and the invasion of Kuwait and the Gulf War.

One million people in the UK alone demonstrated against the 2003 invasion of Iraq. A crucial element of the opposition to the war was the lack of a clear legal basis. This is the first book to analyze the lawfulness of the use of force against Iraq on the basis of formerly classified material made public by the official UK inquiry into the war.

The United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC) is a unique international institution, established by the Security Council in 1991 entrusted with the power of processing and assessing of claims against Iraq arising from the Gulf War and the payment thereof. The UNCC, as a subsidiary organ of the Council, has been created to determine the validity and amount of claims arising on or after August 2, 1990 based upon any direct loss, damage, including environmental damage and depletion of natural resources, to foreign States, nationals or corporations. Iraq, as a consequence of its unlawful invasion and occupation of Kuwait, is liable under international law for the damages incurred. In the seven years since its establishment, the UNCC's major body, the Governing Council, has issued more than forty decisions of a substantive and procedural nature, covering almost all areas of international law in the field of claims. The Panels of Commissioners, the quasi-arbitral bodies of the UNCC, have issued many reports examining a plethora of new as well as old legal issues which have been approved by the Governing Council; and, last but not least, the UNCC has started the payment of the awards. Not only will the UNCC be providing satisfaction to the numerous victims of Iraq's aggression; indeed, its activity will provide useful guidelines for the handling of mass international claims programs in the future. The "Handbook" contains the complete text of the relevant Security Council Resolutions and Reports of the Secretary General, all Governing Council's decisions, a review of the main legal statements by the Panels of Commissioners, a selected bibliography, an index and an introductory essay dealingwith the origins of the UNCC, the claims procedure, the substantive rules on State responsibility, the legal basis of the UNCC and its activities and the perspectives of the UNCC.

This is accomplished through an introduction, a chronology, and a bibliography, as well as appendixes and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant civilian and military personnel, crucial diplomatic and political actions, and essential military aspects, including strategies and tactics, encounters and battles, and forces and weapons deployed by both sides.
