This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the developments that the international criminal law has undergone since the early 1990s and the movement to establish a permanent international criminal court (ICC). It then presents the central theme of this book, which is the tension, conflicting demands, and contradiction in the relationship between international criminal law and the international system. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
