Aksenova uses legal tools to tackle complicity. She explains what complicity means within the international criminal law context and defines the legal requirements of its various forms, as well as delimits complicity from neighboring concepts such as co-perpetration and common design. Citing that the concept of complicity lies at the intersection of law, philosophy, human psychology, sociology and criminology, she elucidates under what circumstances an individual is responsible for the act of another person--a serious dilemma that can be approached from different angles. Her analysis outlines various aspects of complicity in international criminal law--its historical origins, its roots in domestic law, its philosophical underpinnings and the problems with its application in an international context. However, the predominant question of how to deal with collective criminality remains. Distributed in the US by ISBS. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
