Since their creation, the European Union and the Council of Europe have worked to harmonise the justice systems of their member states. This project has been met with a series of challenges. European Criminal Law offers a compelling insight into the development and functions of European criminal law. It tracks the historical development of European criminal law, offering a detailed critical analysis of the criminal justice systems responsible for its implementation. While the rapid expansion and transnationalisation of criminal law is a necessary response to the growing numbers of free movement of persons and goods, it has serious implications for the rights of European citizens and needs to be balanced with rights protections. With its close analysis of secondary legislation and reliance on a wide variety of original sources, this book provides a thorough understanding of European Criminal Law and the institutions involved.

International Criminal Law provides a comprehensive overview of an increasingly integral part of public international law. It complements the usual accounts of the substantive law of those international crimes tried to date before international criminal courts and of the institutional law of those courts with in-depth analyses of fundamental formal juridical concepts such as an 'international crime' and an 'international criminal court'; with detailed examinations of the many international crimes provided for by way of multilateral treaty and of the attendant obligations and rights of states parties; and with sustained attention to the implementation of international criminal law at the national level. Direct, concise, and precise, International Criminal Law should prove a valuable resource for scholars and practitioners of the discipline of international criminal law.

The character of international law between scholarly reflection of foreign policy expediencies and recognising prescriptive rules binding on all concerned has long been a particular challenge to those active in the field. Law is not law if there is no procedure to both determine its contents and to show ways to enforce it. It is through its procedures that international law becomes real. Based on an overview of the varied procedures e.g. in both The Hague’s and the national courts and those found in international organisations a more consistent picture of international law emerges. This compendium for students and practitioners is accessible yet sophisticated in its approach.

The Blackstone's Guide Series is a well established series of practical guides to the latest new legislation. The Guides all contain a full copy of the Act together with commentary on the effects, extent and scope of the legislation. The Guides are concise, accessible and clearly laid out, essential tools for those practising in the area. The Extradition Act 2003 came into force on 1st January 2004. The Act is a major piece of legislation and will radically overhaul current extradition procedure with the aim of simplifying and speeding up the extradition process. It will give effect to the European Arrest Warrant, which for the first time will allow foreign warrants to be directly enforced in the UK. The Act also contains important human rights protections for the fugitive and so the inter-relationship between extradition and human rights is fully covered in the text. This Guide places the new Act in the context of the previous extradition regime and provides a full commentary on the Act. Although the Act will replace the current wide array of provisions contained in the Extradition Act 1989, many of its provisions are derived from the existing regime. The Guide therefore draws on existing case law in order to make sense of the new Act for the reader. The Guide deals with the extradition process in chronological order and is fully cross-referenced, allowing for easy use in court. In addition, the Guide will contain useful appendices including the EuropeanArrest Warrant making it an essential reference work for all those practising in the extradition and international crime field.
