"... a comprehensive introduction to the rapidly developing area of international criminal law ...

Skouteri, Revue Hellenique De Droit International
"Neil Boisters An Introduction to Transnational Criminal Law is a great manual both as an overview of criminal law in the globalised world as emerging subject and as a comprehensive collage of various materials and various tools which
