Banking secrecy and offshore financial centers : money laundering and offshore banking / Mary Alice Young.

Location: lax
Call #: K5223 .Y68 2013
Publisher: Routledge,


This book brings together the issues surrounding banking secrecy and confiscation of criminal proceeds. The book examines the existing legal agreements at the international, regional and national levels and their interaction in the substantive areas of confiscation, anti-money laundering and banking confidentiality laws. It looks at how these agreements have been applied in offshore financial centres and demonstrates that despite a number of legally binding UN Conventions as well as global anti-money laundering recommendations, the implementation of them is often lukewarm by those Parties who have ratified the Convention and adopted obligations, because of this the confiscation legislation is incompatible with strict banking confidentiality laws. The work draws on the experience of criminologists to offer critical insight into the legislative frameworks designed to deal with banking secrecy and confiscation in offshore financial centres. It goes on to offer suggestions for measures that may be taken by major economies to circumvent the lack of cooperation by offshore financial centres as intolerance towards money laundering grows in light of recent political and economic events.

Captured by evil : the idea of corruption in law / Laura S. Underkuffler.

Location: lax
Call #: K5261 .U55 2013
Publisher:


One of the most powerful words in the English language, 'corruption' is also one of the most troubled concepts in law. According to Laura Underkuffler, it is a concept based on religiously revealed ideas of good and evil. But the notion of corruption defies the ordinary categories by which law defines crimes - categories that punish acts, not character, and that eschew punishment on the basis of religion and emotion. Drawing on contemporary examples, Underkuffler explores the implications and dangers of maintaining such an archaic concept at the heart of criminal law. Find out more (catalog link)

Cases & problems in criminal procedure : the courtroom / by Myron Moskovitz.

Location: lax
Call #: KF9618 .M67 2009
Publisher: LexisNexis Matthew Bender,


This unique coursebook attempts to recreate for law students the experience that lawyers have when analyzing the procedural issues involved in the investigatory phase of a criminal case. This approach not only enhances learning but also makes learning enjoyable since students get to play lawyer. At the outset of each chapter, a complex problem is presented in the form of a memo to a law clerk working in a variety of settings (reporting to a public defender, prosecutor, judge or private criminal defense attorney). The problem is followed by the research tools--relevant cases and statutes--necessary to solve the problem. Notes follow many cases, suggesting to students how the cases might be used to analyze the problem. They also contain summaries of recent cases which may give students a broader perspective on how courts are handling the issues raised by the main cases. This book focuses on criminal procedure under the United States Constitution. Find out more (catalog link)

Comparative perspectives on criminal justice in China / edited by Mike McConville, Eva Pils.

Location: lacom
Call #: KNQ1572 .C66 2013
Publisher: Edward Elgar,


Comparative Perspectives on Criminal Justice in China is an anthology of chapters on the contemporary criminal justice system in mainland China, bringing together the work of recognised scholars from China and around the world.The book addresses issues at various stages of the criminal justice process (investigation and prosecution of crime and criminal trial) as well as problems pertaining to criminal defence and to parallel systems of punishment. All of the contributions discuss the criminal justice system in the context of China's legal reforms. Several of the contributions urge the conclusion that the criminal process and related processes remain marred by overwhelming powers of the police and Party-State, and a chapter discussing China's 2012 revision of its Criminal Procedure Law argues that the revision is unlikely to bring significant improvement.This diverse comparative study will appeal to academics in Chinese law, society and politics, members of the human rights NGO and diplomatic communities as well as legal professionals interested in China.

Crime and justice in Japan and China : a comparative view / L. Craig Parker.

Location: lax
Call #: HV7110.5 .P37 2013
Publisher: Carolina Academic Press,


There are many exciting and emerging developments in the justice systems of Japan and China. This book offers an analysis of the two systems with comparisons to the United States' system of criminal justice. Many of the issues explored reflect the fascinating cultural and historical foundations of the two countries. While sharing some interesting similarities, there are vast differences in how the criminal justice systems operate. One of the major themes of Crime and Justice in Japan and China is an examination of how each society's culture has influenced crime and justice. In fact it is evident that the cultural, economic and historical influences of these two Asian giants have had a more profound influence on their justice systems than the police, courts and prisons.

'Crimes against peace' and international law / Kirsten Sellars.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ7140 .S45 2013
Publisher:


In 1946, the judges at the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg declared 'crimes against peace' - the planning, initiation or waging of aggressive wars - to be 'the supreme international crime'. At the time, the prosecuting powers heralded the charge as being a legal milestone, but it later proved to be an anomaly arising from the unique circumstances of the post-war period. This study traces the idea of criminalising aggression, from its origins after the First World War, through its high-water mark at the post-war tribunals at Nuremberg and Tokyo, to its abandonment during the Cold War. Today, a similar charge - the 'crime of aggression' - is being mooted at the International Criminal Court, so the ideas and debates that shaped the original charge of 'crimes against peace' assume new significance and offer valuable insights to lawyers, policy-makers and scholars engaged in international law and international relations.

Criminal law and policy in the European Union / Samuli Miettinen.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE9430 .M54 2013
Publisher: Routledge,


This book takes stock of the development of criminal law in the context of the European Community and the European Union, and considers whether it has led to a European criminal policy, whilst also examining the legal effects European-level initiatives in the field have had on national criminal law and on criminal suspects. The work reflects on the interaction between the law of the European Community and national criminal law since the signing of the Treaty of Rome and against this backdrop reviews the supremacy of European Community law over conflicting national criminal law, the past legislative practice of harmonised ‘administrative’ penalties and their impact on national legal systems as well as the development of relevant European Community principles of fundamental rights. The work goes on to explore whether there are fields in which the European Community might enact directly applicable criminal penalties in the form of EC regulations and also examines related doctrinal concerns considered by the Court of Justice in its earlier case law on the interface between EC law and national criminal law.

Cybercrime and the law : challenges, issues, and outcomes / Susan W. Brenner.

Location: lax
Call #: KF9350 .B74 2012
Publisher: Northeastern University Press,


The exponential increase in cybercrimes in the past decade has raised new issues and challenges for law and law enforcement. Based on case studies drawn from her work as a lawyer, Susan W. Brenner identifies a diverse range of cybercrimes, including crimes that target computers (viruses, worms, Trojan horse programs, malware and DDoS attacks) and crimes in which the computer itself is used as a tool (cyber-stalking, cyber-extortion, cyber-theft, and embezzlement). Illuminating legal issues unique to investigations in a digital environment, Brenner examines both national law enforcement agencies and transnational crime, and shows how cyberspace erodes the functional and empirical differences that have long distinguished crime from terrorism and both from warfare.

Defending Gideon : it's time to finish what he started 50 years ago / a film by The Constitution Project ; produced by New Media Advocacy Projet (N-MAP) ; director & producer, Rebecca Richman Cohen ; producer, Adam Stofsky ; written by Francisco Bello, Re

Location: laab
Call #: DVD KF9646 .D44 2013
Publisher:


Fifty years ago, Clarence Earl Gideon was charged with breaking into a pool hall. He could not afford a lawyer to defend him in court, and after a hasty trial, he was convicted. Had Gideon accepted his fate, he’d have been imprisoned for five years. But Gideon did challenge his conviction —all the way to the Supreme Court. The result was the landmark case Gideon v. Wainwright, which guarantees poor defendants the right to counsel in criminal cases. Weaving the story of this iconic case with contemporary portraits of legal injustice, the film DEFENDING GIDEON highlights the importance of a system that guarantees representation for all—and the dire consequences when that system fails.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ7000 .D58 2012

It brings together established and fresh voices who analyse different sites and contestations of this concept, as well as its context and specific manifestations in the interpretation and application of International Criminal Law. The volume thereby connects discourse on fragmentation with broader inquiry on the merits and discontents of legal pluralism in Public International Law. Find out more (catalog link)

Executing democracy / Stephen John Hartnett.

Location: lax
Call #: HV8699.U5 H374 2010
Publisher: Michigan State University Press,


This eye-opening and well-researched companion to the first volume ofExecuting Democracyenters the death-penalty discussion during the debates of 1835 and 1843, when pro-death penalty Calvinist minister George Barrell Cheever faced off against abolitionist magazine editor John O’Sullivan. In contrast to the macro-historical overview presented in volume 1, volume 2 provides micro-historical case studies, using these debates as springboards into the discussion of the death penalty in America at large. Incorporating a wide range of sources, including political poems, newspaper editorials, and warring manifestos, this second volume highlights a variety of perspectives, thus demonstrating the centrality of public debates about crime, violence, and punishment to the history of American democracy. Hartnett’s insightful assessment bears witness to a complex national discussion about the political, metaphysical, and cultural significance of the death penalty. Find out more (catalog link)

Location: lax
Call #: KZ7162 .Z39 2014
Publisher:


This scholarly legal work focuses on the dilemma of prosecuting gender-based crimes under the statutes of the international criminal tribunals with reference to the principle of fair labelling. In this book Hilmi M. Zawati explains how the abstractness and lack of accurate description of gender-based crimes in the statutory laws of the international criminal tribunals and courts infringe the principle of fair labelling, lead to inconsistent verdicts and punishments, and cause inadequate prosecution of these crimes. This inquiry deals with gender-based crimes as a case study, within the legal principle and theoretical framework of fair labelling. Critical and timely, this study contributes to existing scholarship in many different ways. Find out more (catalog link)

Location: lax
Call #: KZ6530 .D39 2012

Forcible displacement transforms cultures and can even lead to their destruction. Beginning with the origins of the human species millions of years ago and ending up in our present day era, this book analyses examples of forcible displacement in order to examine the crime in its many different forms. The legal contours of the crime receive a comprehensive treatment, including the experience of the international tribunals and decades of scholarly work in the area. The authors suggest that a paradigm shift is needed in order to bring development-induced displacement into the mainstream discourse on forcible displacement. The book concludes with a proposal for a new convention for the prevention and punishment of the crime of forcible displacement. Find out more (catalog link)

Gender, national security and counter-terrorism : human rights perspectives / edited by Margaret L. Satterthwaite and Jayne C. Huckerby.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ6795.T47 G46 2013
Publisher:


Human rights analyses of the counter-terrorism measures implemented in the aftermath of 11 September 2001 have assumed that men suffer the most both numerically and in terms of the nature of rights violations endured. This assumption has obscured the ways that women, men, and sexual minorities experience counter-terrorism. By integrating gender into a human rights analysis of counter-terrorismand human rights into a gendered analysis of counter-terrorismthis volume aims to reverse this trend. Through this variegated human rights lens, the authors in this volume identify the spectrum and nature of rights violations arising in the context of gendered counter-terrorism and national security practices. Introduced with a foreword by Martin Scheinin, former UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counter-Terrorism, the volume examines a wide range of gendered impacts of counter-terrorism measures that have not been theorized in the leading texts on terrorism, counter-terrorism, national security, and human rights. Gender, National Security and Counter-Terrorism will be of particular interest to scholars and students in the disciplines of Law, Security Studies and Gender Studies. Find out more (catalog link)

Publisher: Intersentia,


Criminal law on hate speech has become a hotly debated topic in the past decade. In the Netherlands and in England and Wales legislative changes and proposals abound, while cases such as the prosecution of MP Geert Wilders have received considerable attention. How to deal with hate speech in an increasingly pluralist society has become a pressing question. Moreover, with the attacks in New York, London and Madrid and the appearance of radical groups and individuals, such as Abu Hamza Al-Masri in England and the Hofstadgroep in the Netherlands, public debate has been dominated by the problems of terrorism and radicalisation. As a result, extreme speech - presumed to encourage radicalisation and terrorism - is a major issue. Find out more (catalog link)

Inferno : an anatomy of American punishment / Robert A. Ferguson.

Location: lax
Call #: K5103 .F47 2014
Publisher:


The United States punishes at a higher per capita rate than any other country in the world. Looking not only to court records but to works of philosophy, history, and literature for illumination, Robert Ferguson, a distinguished law professor, diagnoses all parts of a now massive, out-of-control punishment regime. He reveals the veiled pleasure behind the impulse to punish (which confuses our thinking about the purpose of punishment), explains why over time all punishment regimes impose greater levels of punishment than originally intended, and traces a disturbing gap between our ability to quantify pain and the precision with which penalties are handed down.

This volume describes 15 court cases for which Roger Shuy served as an expert language witness and explains the issues at stake in those cases for lawyers and linguists. Murder case investigations and trials are guided by the important legal terms describing the mental states of defendants - their intentionality, predisposition, and voluntariness. Statutes and dictionaries can provide only loose definitions, largely because mental states are virtually impossible to define. Their meaning, therefore, must be adduced either by inferences and assumptions or by any available language evidence. Find out more (catalog link)

Maritime piracy and the construction of global governance / edited by Michael J. Struett, Jon D. Carlson, and Mark T. Nance.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ7212 .M37 2013
Publisher: Routledge,


In this book, a handpicked group of leading experts in the field of International Relations use maritime piracy as a means to expose the incongruities in our understanding of global governance. Using broadly constructivist approaches to understand international actors’ responses to the challenges created by maritime piracy, the contributors question a number of myths and misconceptions around piracy uncover and analyze the various ways that international law and organizations channel actors’ understandings of maritime piracy and their efforts to respond to it. In doing so, they expose some shaky foundations for IR theorists: how do we conceive of sovereignty and legitimacy when they are delinked from the territorial aspect of the modern nation-state? What happens to prospects for cooperation when we get to the nitty-gritty questions of practice related to paying for trials, imprisoning and maintaining captured pirates, bearing the burden of policing sea-lanes, or even determining what constitutes a pirate? Does anyone have a monopoly on the legitimate use of force at sea, and how is that legitimacy constructed? Find out more (catalog link)

New pleading in the twenty-first century : slamming the federal courthouse doors? / Scott Dodson.

Location: lax
Call #: KF8840 .D63 2013
Publisher:


New Pleading in the Twenty-First Century: Slamming the Federal Courthouse Doors? is the first book to comprehensively analyze, critique, and provide solutions for the new pleading regime in U.S. federal courts. In two recent decisions, the U.S. Supreme Court dramatically altered the pleadingslandscape by imposing a version of fact pleading and merits screening - what the author calls "New Pleading" - that has not existed in the U.S. for 70 years.The result of this abrupt regime change is a broad, significant, and adverse effect on litigant access to civil justice. But because of its nascence, no scholar has provided a comprehensive, doctrinal, theoretical, and prospective look at what it means for U.S. federal civil procedure, both in theUnited States and in the larger global community. This book takes on that task. It synthesizes a theoretical account of New Pleading, argues that New Pleading is inconsistent with a system of procedural justice, and provides two distinct solutions for rectifying the inconsistency.

Rough justice : the International Criminal Court in a world of power politics / David Bosco.

Call #: KZ7312 .B67 2014

The Nuremberg trials after World War II constituted a landmark in the development of international criminal justice: presided over by jurists from the victorious powers, it set new standards for defining international war crimes. Set in motion shortly after the creation of the United Nations, the courts seemed to point toward a future in which the international community could more effectively prosecute crimes against humanity and advance the cause of justice and the rule of law throughout the world. Here, David Bosco tells the story of the movement to establish the court and its tumultuous first decade. He also considers its prospects for the future, especially the very real challenges that it faces. This is an authoritative account of an international institution that is prototypical of the post-Cold War era. Find out more (catalog link)

The treaty creating the very recent International Criminal Court (ICC), however, has a much stronger enforcement mechanism than is usually associated with international human rights treaties: states have delegated to the court and its independent prosecutor the authority and resources to investigate, arrest, prosecute, and punish state nationals for mass atrocities should the state be unwilling or unable to do so.
