Former State Department official Scharf (law, New England Sch. of Law) weaves a fascinating firsthand account of the creation of the Yugoslavia War Crimes Tribunal. He breezily describes key background events, such as the fall of the Ottoman Empire, before launching into detailed descriptions of the prosecution of Bosnian war crimes and the delicate political maneuvers at the United Nations. The balance of his work is devoted to a comprehensive account of the tribunal's first trial, that of Dusko Tadic, a Bosnian Serb convicted of atrocities against Muslims. Scharf compares and contrasts the Yugoslavian Tribunal to its Nuremberg predecessor, addressing the strengths and weaknesses of both and their respective impacts on human rights issues. Esssential for academic libraries and those with strong current affairs collections. Steven Anderson, Baltimore Cty. Circuit Court Law Lib., Towson, Md.
