In this book an original approach is made to the topical problem of superior orders in the sphere of international law. The defense of obedience to orders has been a major issue in the plethora of war crimes trials that have taken place since the end of the Second World War, and has provoked lively and far-ranging discussion by jurists and laymen alike throughout the world. Here an attempt is made to classify into prevailing doctrines the conflicting views hitherto expressed on the subject in the theory and practice of international law. 

Includes a table of cases, bibliography, subject index and name index.
