'A stunning publication, both for the boldness of conception and for the inherent interest and renewed relevance of the perspective.' Richard Falk, Princeton University
'Combines the spontaneity of a discussion with a good insight into the subject-matter of the Tokyo Trial. It gives a highly readable account of the trial for those who are interested in international law but lack the time or inclination to consult the twenty two volumes.' Netherlands International Law Review
'It eloquently depicts the original and perceptive insights of Judge Roling concerning the Tokyo trial and is a most valuable contribution to the sparse literature in English on the topic.' The Journal of Asian Studies
