Bibliographic information:


Gutman, Roy, David Rieff, and Anthony Dworkin, eds. 2007. Crimes of War 2.0: What the Public Should Know. 2nd ed. New York: W. W. Norton. 




Presented in an A to Z arrangement, this book aims to serve as "both a reference book for individuals in the field and as a visual and vivid source book for a wide variety of audiences, including the general reader" (web site).  The focus is on international humanitarian law and the atrocities against civilians that continue to be committed around the world.  The entries are written in an accessible, reporter-like style predominantly by journalists.  The web version includes articles from the updated edition as well as chapters previously omitted from the first edition.  The book has been translated into a number of languages including Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Russian, Serbo-Croat and Spanish.  A link to the Arabic edition is provided via the web version.  Also available online is an Educator's Guide, prepared by the Human Rights Education Associates (HREA).
