This is the second edition of William Schabas's highly-praised study of the abolition of the death penalty in international law. Extensively revised to take account of developments in the field since its original publication in 1993, the book details the progress of the international community away from the use of capital punishment, discussing in detail the institution of the death penalty in international humanitarian law, European human rights law, and inter-American human rights law. An extensive list of appendices contains many of the essential documents for the study of capital punishment in international law. The Abolition of the Death Penalty in International Law is introduced by Judge Gilbert Guillaume, from the International Court of Justice.
