Summary/Abstract "The trial of the major Nazi war criminals in Nuremberg was a landmark event in the development of modern international law, and continues to be highly influential in our understanding of international criminal law and post-conflict justice. This volume offers a unique collection of the most important essays written on the Trial, discussing the key legal, political, and philosophical questions raised by the Trial both contemporaneously and in historical perspective." "The collection focuses on pieces from those involved in the proceedings, discussing the establishment of the Tribunal, the Trial itself, and the debate that followed the Judgment. Also included are many essential essays of the academic debate that has surrounded Nuremberg in the sixty years since the Trial."--BOOK JACKET
