From reviews of the third edition:

‘This book is an established reference in the international criminal law arena and … with Kai Ambos now having taken over the editorial responsibility, there is an assurance that Triffterer’s legacy will continue. This is to the great benefit of all practitioners, academics, students of international criminal law and all other stakeholders who are interested in the ICC and its work.’

Ousman Nijkam, in: Criminal Law Forum (2016) 27:121-127

 

‘One can only agree with the words of Judge Song in his introduction that the Triffterer/Ambos Commentary ‘represents a most valuable contribution to a more erudite understanding and interpretation of the Rome Statute and therefore a powerful tool to document and supplement the development of international criminal law’. It will be an indispensable tool for those working at or before the International Criminal Court, and even in the field of international criminal law more generally.’

Simon M. Meisenberg, in: International Criminal Law Review 2016, 561-563

 

‘masterwork… a mandatory purchase for any library’

‘Corresponding to the ICC Statute, the book consists of 13 parts and 131 articles. These are thoroughly examined by 81 authors, all possessing an academic or practical background as well as outstanding expertise in international criminal law. ... In general, the commentaries on the legal framework of the ICC are clearly structured and well written. ... undoubtedly still the best product in its segment on the market.’
