Targeting is the primary method for securing strategic objectives in an armed conflict. Failure to comply with the law of targeting jeopardizes the achievement of those aims. It is therefore essential that all those involved in or studying issues surrounding targeting have an accurate and complete understanding of this area of law. This book offers the definitive and comprehensive statement of all aspects of the law of targeting. It is a 'one-stop shop' that answers all relevant questions in depth. It has been written in an open, accessible yet comprehensive style, and addresses both matters of established law and issues of topical controversy.

The text explains the meanings of such terms as 'civilian', 'combatant', and 'military objective'. Chapters are devoted to the core targeting principles of distinction, discrimination, and proportionality, as well as to the relationship between targeting and the protection of the environment and of objects and persons entitled to special protection. New technologies are also covered, with chapters looking at attacks using unmanned platforms and a discussion of the issues arising from cyber warfare. The book also examines recent controversies and perceived ambiguities in the rules governing targeting, including the use of human shields, the level of care required in a bombing campaign, and the difficulties involved in determining whether someone is directly participating in hostilities. This book will be invaluable to all working in this contentious area of law.

Review:

The books structure is clear and logical; each chapter ends with a valuable summary; there is a good index. (David Bentley, International Law, Chatham House)

... Boothby's comprehensive up-to-date analysis of the entire corpus of rules pertaining to the conduct of hostilities and the many controversial issues surrounding it is a most welcome addition to the literature on the laws of armed conflict. (Prof. Dr. Robin Geiß, Global Law Books)

Though expansive in scope, the monograph is detailed and precise in its analysis, balancing scholarly inquiry with operational understanding and context. Air Commodore Boothby's unique experience and perspective, along with his academically rigorous yet accessible style, make this a valuable text for anyone wishing to better understand the complex field that is targeting in modern armed conflict. (Emily Crawford, British Yearbook of International Law)
