Cyber Operations and the Use of Force in International Law (OUP, 2014) has been reviewed by Dr Russell Buchan (Sheffield University) for the British Yearbook of International Law.

According to the review, ‘Marco Roscini's book engages in a detailed, rigorous and well informed doctrinal analysis of the application of this legal framework to cyber operations, which singles it out as a highly significant resource in the field...this book is an exhibition of excellent legal scholarship. In chapter 1 Roscini explains that the book's “overall goal is to provide a systematic and coherent analysis of the international law applicable to military cyber operations that will be of use to anyone who wants or needs to understand the basic issues of the rules of international law on the use of force and the law of armed conflict”. Incontrovertibly, this book successfully and impressively achieves this objective.’ (British Yearbook of International Law, Vol. 84, pp. 385-389).

Cyber Operations and the Use of Force in International Law is available from Amazon.
