Summary

This pamphlet, intended for senior high school students, examines the complexities of applying international law to questions of individual rights and responsibilities in time of war. Case studies of four actual courtroom trials are presented. Events leading up to the trials (relating to Andersonville, Nuremberg, Hiroshima, and My Lai) are recounted to include various viewpoints. No interpretations are made but study aids leading to discussion of the issues and definition of the principles are provided. A brief history of the development of law as a protector of individual rights from local to national to international is presented and the role of international law is discussed. The final chapter encourages students to plan a model of a world system of law which is effective in protecting individual rights and encourages individual responsibility. The pamphlet concludes with a bibliography of books and feature films. (CK)
