As stated by the anonymous referee, it is the most theoretically advanced and analytically refined work yet accomplished on this topic. The style of writing is clear and concise, and the organisation of the book meets the demands of scholars and practitioners alike.

Die Untersuchung führt über drei Schritte. Im ersten Schritt beschreibt der Autor die Verbindung der postulierten Gleichheit der Souveräne mit der Völkerrechtssubjektivität der Belligerenten nach den bis gegen 1800 vorliegenden Völkerrechtstheorien. Im zweiten Schritt werden die Wandlungen dieser Theorien während des 19. und frühen 20.Jahrhunderts dargelegt, die die Aberkennung der Völkerrechtssubjektivität und der souveränen Staatlichkeit der Opfer von Kolonialherrschaft durch die europäischen Kolonialregierungen und die Regierung der USA begründen sollten. Im dritten Schritt folgt die Analyse der zeitgenössischen Theorien des Kolonialkriegs als „totaler“ Krieg jenseits der Grenzen des Kriegsvölkerrechts.

There are many variables of territoriality available to national courts under contemporary international law. Does the same apply to the International Criminal Court? And if so, what are the limits to the teleological expansion of the Court's territorial jurisdiction as regards, for example, partial commission of a crime in State not Party territory, crimes committed over the internet or crimes committed in occupied territories? Michael Vagias's analysis of the law and procedure surrounding the territorial jurisdiction of the Court examines issues such as the application of localisation theories of territoriality and the means of interpretation for article 12(2)(a); the principle of legality (nullum crimen sine lege) and human rights law for the interpretation of jurisdictional provisions; compétence de la compétence; crimes committed over the internet; and the procedure for jurisdictional objections.

Natural resource wealth is conducive to a country's development. Nevertheless, the last few decades have shown a harsher reality, where natural resources have also triggered, financed or fuelled a number of internal armed conflicts. Examples include the armed conflicts in Cambodia, Sierra Leone, Liberia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which have been financed with the exploitation of a variety of valuable natural resources, including diamonds, gold, timber, oil and cocoa. The aim of this book is to assess the contribution of international law in ensuring that natural resources are used to promote development and to achieve sustainable peace instead of financing armed conflict. For this purpose, the author discusses the international legal framework for the governance of natural resources in States in general, in situations of armed conflict and as part of conflict resolution and post-conflict peacebuilding efforts.
