The introduction by Roger Clark presents the early life of William Schabas, and some of the influences that must have shaped his career. It offers in Section II of this portrait some ruminations about his thoughts and interests based on a reading of his 2012 book Unimaginable Atrocities: Justice, Politics and Rights at the War Crimes Tribunals. This work is a set of reflections about many of his academic journeys, a kind of memoir but without the normal chronological trappings and personal puffery of the genre. It is perhaps the most opinionated of his oeuvre. It paints with a broader brush than much of his work. It is also this book that has the least trappings of scholarship, that is to say it lacks the copious footnotes that are his normal hallmark.

Keywords:   early life, legal career, academic career, Criminal Law Forum, sporting activities, unimaginable atrocities
