Summary"The legal premises of the Eichmann Trial, a prosecution by one nation for crimes against its people and humanity, differed markedly from previous prosecutions for war crimes. The purpose of this work, written by the official observer at the Trial for the International Commission of Jurists, is to explore further the legal and political bases and consequences of the proceedings." —Book jacket
