Call #: JC599.C6 Z36 2013
Publisher:


In "In the Shadow of the Rising Dragon," Chinese citizens from all walks of life share their stories of brutality and oppression. Public beatings, grueling official questioning, unexplained detentions, and house arrest have become common-place occurrences, requiring only a minor infraction to set into motion. Those that dare to push the boundaries of the totalitarian regime, including one essayists visit to the human rights activist Chen Guangcheng, are sentenced to life-long imprisonment, subjected to physical and psychological torture, and, frighteningly, made to "disappear." What emerges is a pattern of harassment directed, not at opposition figures, but ordinary citizens who live in crippling uncertainty of their future. Find out more (catalog link)

Heart of human rights / Allen Buchanan.

Location: lax
Call #: K3240 .B825 2013
Publisher:


This is the first attempt to provide an in-depth moral assessment of the heart of the modern human rights enterprise: the system of international legal human rights. It is international human rights law - not any philosophical theory of moral human rights or any "folk" conception of moral human rights - that serves as the lingua franca of modern human rights practice. Yet contemporary philosophers have had little to say about international legal human rights. They have tended to assume,rather than to argue, that international legal human rights, if morally justified, must mirror or at least help realize moral human rights. But this assumption is mistaken. International legal human rights, like many other legal rights, can be justified by several different types of moral considerations, of which the need to realize a corresponding moral right is only one.

Human rights and the right to food / Claudia Tofan (ed.).

Location: lax
Call #: K3260 .H86 2013
Publisher:


The right to food is a basic human right, as well as a basic human need which should be guaranteed to all people. Food is the most basic necessity of life. When talking about the right to food, we generally tend to focus only on the developing countries and their right to food. In recent years, another issue with regard to food has been added as a human right: the right to safe food. The right to food has been recognized in numerous international instruments, including several meetings attended by world leaders or their representatives where they have increasingly committed themselves to promoting this right. Unfortunately, the international legal recognition of the right to adequate food and numerous commitments to its fulfillment has not translated into widespread acknowledgement and incorporation domestically by all States. Much of the content of the right to food has been developed as a result of these instruments; therefore it is necessary to look at them. This collection presents the most important documents and reports from the United Nations, regional organizations, and national achievements. Find out more (catalog link)

Race so different : performance and law in Asian America / Joshua Takano Chambers-Letson.

Location: lax
Call #: KF4757.5.A75 C43 2013
Publisher:


Taking a performance studies approach to understanding Asian American racial subjectivity, Joshua Takano Chambers-Letson argues that the law influences racial formation by compelling Asian Americans to embody and perform recognizable identities in both popular aesthetic forms (such as theatre, opera, or rock music) and in the rituals of everyday life. Tracing the production of Asian American selfhood from the era of Asian exclusion through the Global War on Terror, 'A Race So Different' explores the legal paradox whereby US law apprehends the Asian American body as simultaneously excluded from and included within the national body politic.

Extra-legal power and legitimacy : perspectives on prerogative / edited by Clement Fatovic, Benjamin A. Kleinerman.

Location: lax
Call #: KF5060 .E96 2013
Publisher:


When an economic collapse, natural disaster, epidemic outbreak, terrorist attack, or internal crisis puts a country in dire need, governments must rise to the occasion to protect their citizens, sometimes employing the full scope of their powers. How do political systems that limit government control under normal circumstances allow for the discretionary and potentially unlimited power that such emergencies sometimes seem to require? Constitutional systems aim to regulate government behavior through stable and predictable laws, but when their citizens freedom, security, and stability are threatened by exigencies, often the government must take extraordinary action regardless of whether it has the legal authority to do so. In Extra-Legal Power and Legitimacy: Perspectives on Prerogative, Clement Fatovic and Benjamin A. Kleinerman examine the costs and benefits associated with different ways that governments have wielded extra-legal powers in times of emergency. Find out more (catalog link)

Location: lax
Call #: KJC5138 .E976 2013
Publisher:


The European Court of Human Rights has long been part of the most advanced human rights regime in the world. However, the Court has increasingly drawn criticism, with questions raised about its legitimacy and backlog of cases. This book for the first time brings together the critics of the Court and its proponents to debate these issues. The result is a collection which reflects balanced perspectives on the Court's successes and challenges. Judges, academics and policymakers engage constructively with the Court's criticism, developing novel pathways and strategies for the Court to adopt to increase its legitimacy, to amend procedures to reduce the backlog of applications, to improve dialogue with national authorities and courts, and to ensure compliance by member States. The solutions presented seek to ensure the Court's relevance and impact into the future and to promote the effective protection of human rights across Europe. Find out more (catalog link)

European Court of Justice and the autonomy of the member states / Hans-W. Micklitz, Bruno De Witte, (editors).

Location: lax
Call #: KJE5472 .E93 2012
Publisher: Intersentia,


Whereas individual Member State governments of the European Union occasionally complain about judgments of the European Court of Justice (ECJ), especially when those judgments curtail that State's policy autonomy in a sensitive domain, the collectivity of the Member State governments have agreed in each treaty revision so far to confirm and extend the far-reaching powers which the ECJ possesses for enforcing EU law. The explanation of the paradox can only be that, deep down, the Member States of the EU remain convinced that an effective ECJ with strong enforcement powers is one of the salient features of EU law which have stood the test of time and feel no inclination to clip the wings of the ECJ for fear that this would affect the effectiveness of the European integration process. Nevertheless, the grumblings about single judgments, or about the consistency and direction of the ECJ in particular policy fields, have never ceased and indeed have become more audible in recent years.

Broberg on the European Commission's jurisdiction to scrutinise mergers / Morten P. Broberg.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE6467 .B76 2013
Publisher:


Since the EC Merger Regulation was adopted in 1989, merger control has become established as an important part of EC competition law so that today all major businesses and law firms are aware of the Commission's extensive powers in this field. Right from the beginning, the Regulation's scope has occupied a central role in many mergers taking place both inside and outside the European Community. The second edition of The European Commission's Jurisdiction to Scrutinise Mergers provides the most thorough examination of the Commission's jurisdiction to examine mergers under the Regulation. Even though the Merger Regulation provides a detailed account of what mergers fall within the Commission's jurisdiction--and irrespective of the large number of cases that have now been decided by the Commission--the delimitation of jurisdiction continues to create significant problems. The second edition of The European Commission's Jurisdiction to Scrutinise Mergers offers a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of all aspects of this delimitation. It provides valuable guidance to businesses, their legal advisors and competition law enforcers in the Commission as well as in the Member States. Find out more (catalog link)

EU agricultural law / Jens Hartig Danielsen.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE6605 .D36 2013
Publisher:


The Common Agricultural Policy is one of the most developed of the common policies of the EU and has been a model for many of the general principles of EU Law.

This book examines those legal aspects through the evolution of the CAP. It traces the legal transformation of the CAP from a market and price-driven policy towards its current emphasis on the multifunctionality of European agriculture and the development of a common food policy,incorporating food safety and quality, animal health and welfare and the protection of the environment.

Legal transparency in dynastic China : the legalist-Confucianist debate and good governance in Chinese tradition / John W. Head and Xing Lijuan.

Location: lacom
Call #: KNN456 .H43 2013
Publisher: Carolina Academic Press,


Legal Transparency in Dynastic China presents a clear narrative that assumes no prior expertise in Chinese law or history, and it caters to readers interested in issues of good governance, comparative studies, China, history, and law. The book begins by defining "legal transparency" and explaining where it fits into the larger context of the transparency-in-government movement that has gained such momentum in recent years, especially at the urging of Western powers. Then the book explains the fundamentally different values espoused by early Confucianists, for whom society is best governed not through written law but through the exemplary behavior of a highly educated, virtuous, and enlightened elite. After tracing the political and ideological challenges that the Confucianists faced from the Legalists, Head and Xing examine the compromise that resulted in the so-called "Confucianization of the Law" around 200 BCE. They then show how that alloy of competing ideologies characterized Chinese dynastic law for many centuries, resulting in what some would consider the most enduring and effective legal system in human history.

It discusses the differing positions of those who favour 'the rule of law' option, where there is organizational separation of legislature and judicial responsibility, and those who argue for the retention of China's present system where judges and the courts are subordinate to the Party and who are concerned by any increase in the court's independent interpretative activities.

Location: lacom
Call #: KNS3409 .P87 2013
Publisher: Oxford University Press,

This book will interest lawyers, policymakers, activists, and journalists. Scholars, researchers, teachers, and students of law and politics will also find it useful. Find out more (catalog link)

Elephant treaties : the colonial legacy of the biodiversity crisis / Rachelle Adam.

Location: lax
Call #: K3488 .A93 2014
Publisher:


Based on a legal history of international biodiversity treaties from the late nineteenth century to the present, Rachelle Adam argues that today's biodiversity crisis is rooted in European colonial history, especially in the conservation treaties that the colonial powers (and their non-governmental counterparts) negotiated to protect Africa's big-game animals. Reflecting on the colonial past--particularly on efforts to manage the commerce in elephant ivory--Adam sheds light on why more recent attempts to arrest the decline in biodiversity by way of international agreement have failed. This volume will spur a rethinking of such agreements and trigger a search for alternatives outside of existing international structures. Find out more (catalog link)

Unity of the common law / Alan Brudner with Jennifer M. Nadler.

Location: lax
Call #: K588 .B78 2013
Publisher:


The structure of common law has for many years been the subject of intense debate between formalists and functionalists. The former, drawing on legal realism, proposes that transactional law is a private law for interacting parties, while the later, inspired by Kant, argue it is a public law serving the collective ends of society. But what if there were a unity between functionalism and formalism? What if, in this unity, private law is modfied by a common good? In this revised and re-written edition, Alan Brudner draws on Hegel's legal philosophy to exhibit this unity in each of transactional laws main divisions; property, contract, unjust enrichment and tort. Brudner suggests each of these divisions is composed of private-law and public-law parts that complement each other and that they are connected by a single narrative thread. This thread consists in development towards a goal. Find out more (catalog link)

Secession of states and their recognition in the wake of Kosovo / John Dugard.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ4028 .D84 2013
Publisher:


The secession of States is subject to legal regulation. The arguments presented by States in the advisory proceedings on Kosovo confirm thatthere are rules of international law that determine whether the secession of a State in the post-colonial world is permissible. These rules derivefrom the competing principles of self-determination and territorial integrity. In deciding whether to recognize a secessionist entity as aState, or to admit it to the United Nations, States must balance these competing principles, with due regard to precedent and State practice.These lectures examine cases in which secession has succeeded (such as Israel and Bangladesh), in which it has failed (such as Biafra and Chechnya) and in which a determination is still to be made (Kosovo, Abkhazia and South Ossetia).

Fair labelling and the dilemma of prosecuting gender-based crimes at the international criminal tribunals / Hilmi M. Zawati ; Preface by Justice Teresa A. Doherty, CBE.

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)

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

Location: lax
Call #: KZ7312 .B67 2014
Publisher:


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)

Balancing constitutional rights : the origins and meanings of postwar legal discourse / Jacco Bomhoff.

Location: lax
Call #: K247 .B65 2013
Publisher:


The language of balancing is pervasive in constitutional rights jurisprudence around the world. In this book, Jacco Bomhoff offers a comparative and historical account of the origins and meanings of this talismanic form of language, and of the legal discourse to which it is central. Contemporary discussion has tended to see the increasing use of balancing as the manifestation of a globalization of constitutional law. This book is the first to argue that 'balancing' has always meant radically different things in different settings. Bomhoff uses detailed case studies of early post-war US and German constitutional jurisprudence to show that the same unique language expresses both biting scepticism and profound faith in law and adjudication, and both deep pessimism and high aspirations for constitutional rights. An understanding of these radically different meanings is essential for any evaluation of the work of constitutional courts today. Find out more (catalog link)

Fixing U.S. international taxation / Daniel N. Shaviro.

Location: lax
Call #: KF6499.I57 S53 2014
Publisher:


International tax rules, which determine how countries tax cross-border investment, are increasingly important with the rise of globalization, but the modern US rules, even more than those in most other countries, are widely recognized as dysfunctional. The existing debate over how to reform the US tax rules is stuck in a sterile dialectic, in which ostensibly the only permissible choices are worldwide or residence-based taxation of US companies with the allowance of foreigntax credits, versus outright exemption of the companies' foreign source income. In this book, Shaviro explains why neither of these solutions addresses the fundamental problem at hand, and he proposes a new reformulation of the existing framework from first principles.

Hague Child Abduction Convention : a critical analysis / Rhona Schuz.

Location: lax

The 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction was the response of the international community to the increase in the phenomenon of parental child abduction. However, behind the widely-acclaimed success of this Convention - which has been ratified by more than 80 States - lie personal tragedies, academic controversy, and diplomatic tensions. The continuing steady flow of case-law from the various EU Member States has resulted in the emergence of different approaches to the interpretation of key concepts in the Convention. In addition, over the years, other global and regional legal instruments and the recommendations of the Special Commissions have had an impact on the implementation of the Convention. This book brings together all these strands and provides an up-to-date, clear, and highly-readable discussion of the international operation of the Abduction Convention together with in-depth critical academic analysis.

By viewing constitutional law through the prism of this fundamental question, this book exposes an overlooked difficulty with opinions rendered by the Supreme Court, an inherent ambiguity about the kinds of arguments that count in constitutional interpretation, weakening the foundations of our most cherished rights.

Critical studies in private law : a treatise on need-rational principles in modern law / Thomas Wilhelmsson.

Location: lacom
Call #: KJT858 .W5513 1992
Publisher: Kluwer Academic Publishers,


Critical Studies in Private Law discusses the prerequisites and possibilities for an alternative or critical legal dogmatics. The starting point of the analysis is the recognition of contradictions within the legal order. In this respect the theory may use the experience of both American Critical Legal Studies and the German attempts to formulate a legal theory for the social state. The key for understanding how the contradictory concrete legal material may produce varying results on the level of legal decisions is the systematization, the general principles of the law.

Jurisdiction and arbitration agreements in international commercial law / Zheng Sophia Tang.

Location: lax
Call #: K2400 .T356 2014

Arbitration and jurisdiction agreements are frequently used in transnational commercial contracts to reduce risk, gain efficacy and acquire certainty and predictability. Because of the similarities between these two types of procedural autonomy agreements, they are often treated in a similar way by courts and practitioners. This book offers a comprehensive study of the prerequisites, effectiveness, and enforcement of exclusive jurisdiction and arbitration agreements in international dispute resolution. It examines whether jurisdiction and arbitration clauses have identical effects in private international law and whether they have been or should be given the same treatment by most countries in the world. By comparing the treatment of these clauses in the US, China, UK and EU, Zheng Sophia Tang demonstrates how, in practice, exclusive jurisdiction and arbitration agreements are enforced.

Behind the multilateral trading system : legal indigenization and the WTO in comparative perspective / Xing Lijuan.

Location: lax
Call #: K4610 .X56 2014
Publisher:


Behind the Multilateral Trading System offers a novel perspective from which to view and understand the WTO regime and its participants. The central feature of that new perspective is the concept of legal indigenization. This term generally refers to the process or ideology in which domestic authorities make and implement international or domestic rules in a way appealing to their native features (especially legal traditions), as responses to globalization led by a defective global legal system. The book's core thesis is that the influence of the legal tradition and culture of a society or political system inevitably and fundamentally influences the ways in which WTO members propose multilateral trading rules and implement their WTO obligations--in ways that have not, until now, been adequately explored and explained in the extensive literature relating to international trade law.

In this volume, folklorists, ethnologists, and anthropologists analyze the practice and performance of culture in particular contexts - including Roma wedding music, Trinidadian wining, Moroccan verbal art, and Neopagan rituals - in order to draw apart the social, political, and aesthetic materialities of heritage production, including inequities and hierarchies that did not exist before.

Warnings and product liability : lessons learned from cognitive psychology and ergonomics / Sanne Pape.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE1630 .P37 2012
Publisher:


European Union citizens are injured each year while using products. Product liability law can contribute to preventing such damage by the way in which liability requirements in the context of warnings are framed and applied. Underlying these warning issues are a number of legal presumptions about how humans behave and interact with products and with their warnings. Primarily, liability law presumes that warnings can be effective in modifying user behavior. Relative to this is the manner in which courts or litigants evaluate product warnings in European product liability law. To rule more consistently and effectively in warning issues, a solution resides in the use of guidelines in European product liability laws that are based on empirical evidence on how humans interact with warnings. This book undertakes a behavioral approach towards the topic of warnings and product liability. Find out more (catalog link)

International trials and reconciliation : assessing the impact of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia / Janine Natalya Clark.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ1203 .C57 2014
Publisher:


Transitional justice is a burgeoning field of scholarly inquiry. Yet while the transitional justice literature is replete with claims about the benefits of criminal trials, too often these claims lack an empirical basis and hence remain unproven. While there has been much discussion about whether criminal trials can aid reconciliation, the extent to which they actually do so in practice remains under-explored. This book investigates the relationship between criminal trials and reconciliation, through a particular focus on the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY).

Reputation and judicial tactics : a theory of national and international courts / Shai Dothan, Tel Aviv University, Faulty of Law.

Location: lax
Call #: K2100 .D68 2014
Publisher:


This book argues that national and international courts seek to enhance their reputations through the strategic exercise of judicial power. Courts often cannot enforce their judgments and must rely on reputational sanctions to ensure compliance. One way to do this is for courts to improve their reputation for generating compliance with their judgments. When the court's reputation is increased, parties will be expected to comply with its judgments and the reputational sanction on a party that fails to comply will be higher. This strategy allows national and international courts, which cannot enforce their judgments against states and executives, to improve the likelihood that their judgments will be complied with over time. This book describes the judicial tactics that courts use to shape their judgments in ways that maximize their reputational gains. Find out more (catalog link)

Twilight of human rights law / Eric A. Posner.

Location: lax
Call #: K3240 .P69 2014
Publisher:


In this work, legal scholar Eric Posner explains a paradox: the language of human rights is now the dominant mode of international moral criticism of governments, and yet the evidence suggests that most countries flagrantly violate the human rights treaties that they solemnly ratify. The prevailing consensus, he notes, is that governments should promote the well-being of citizens in their countries, and that in extreme cases, foreign countries should intervene and replace governments that fail to comply with this duty. The problem, he contends, is countries disagree on how they can achieve those goals. Posner closes by arguing that foreign aid provides a better model for pressuring governments to improve their treatment of citizens. Find out more (catalog link)

Impunity, human rights, and democracy : Chile and Argentina, 1990-2005 / Thomas C. Wright.

Location: lax
Call #: JC599.C5 W75 2014
Publisher:


Universal human rights standards were adopted in 1948, but in the 1970s and 1980s, violent dictatorships in Argentina and Chile flagrantly defied the new protocols. Chilean general Augusto Pinochet and the Argentine military employed state terrorism in their quest to eradicate Marxism and other forms of "subversion." Pinochet constructed an iron shield of impunity for himself and the military in Chile, while in Argentina, military pressure resulted in laws preventing prosecution for past human rights violations. When democracy was reestablished in both countries by 1990, justice for crimes against humanity seemed beyond reach.Thomas C. Wright examines how persistent advocacy by domestic and international human rights groups, evolving legal environments, unanticipated events that impacted public opinion, and eventual changes in military leadership led to a situation unique in the world--the stripping of impunity not only from a select number of commanders of the repression but from all those involved in state terrorism in Chile and Argentina.

Others claim that subjecting counter-terrorism measures to judicial review is crucial for maintaining a jurisdiction's principles of constitutionalism. This volume brings together voices from all sides of the debate from a broad range of jurisdictions, from North America, Europe and Australasia. Find out more (catalog link)

Deference in international courts and tribunals : standard of review and margin of appreciation / edited by Lukasz Gruszczynski and Wouter Werner.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ6250 .D44 2014
Publisher:


International courts and tribunals are often asked to review decisions originally made by domestic decision-makers. This can often be a source of tension, as the international courts and tribunals need to judge how far to defer to the original decisions of the national bodies. As international courts and tribunals have proliferated, different courts have applied differing levels of deference to those originial decisions, which can lead to a fragmentation ininternational law. International courts in such positions rely on two key doctrines: the standard of review and the margin of appreciation. Find out more (catalog link)

In the wake of the Second World War, how were the Allies to respond to the enormous crime of the Holocaust? Even in an ideal world, it would have been impossible to bring all the perpetrators to trial. Nevertheless, an attempt was made to prosecute some. Most people have heard of the Nuremberg trial and the Eichmann trial, though they probably have not heard of the Kharkov Trial - the first trial of Germans for Nazi-era crimes - or even the Dachau Trials, in which war criminals were prosecuted by the American military personnel on the former concentration camp grounds. This book uncovers ten 'forgotten trials' of the Holocaust, selected from the many Nazi trials that have taken place over the course of the last seven decades. Find out more (catalog link)

Legal regime of straits : contemporary challenges and solutions / Hugo Caminos, Vincent P. Cogliati-Bantz.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ3760 .C36 2014
Publisher:


The right of transit passage in straits and the analogous right of archipelagic sealanes passage in archipelagic states, negotiated in the 1970s and embodied in the 1982 UNCLOS, sought to approximate the freedom of navigation and overflight while expressly recognising the sovereignty or jurisdiction of the coastal state over the waters concerned. However, the allocation of rights and duties of the coastal state and third states is open to interpretation. Recent developments in state practice, such as Australia's requirement of compulsory pilotage in the Torres Strait, the bridge across the Great Belt and the proposals for a bridge across the Strait of Messina, the enhanced environmental standards applicable in the Strait of Bonifacio and Canada's claims over the Arctic Route, make it necessary to reassess the whole common law of straits. The Legal Regime of Straits examines the complex relationship between the coastal state and the international community. Find out more (catalog link)

Defensive killing / Helen Frowe.

Location: lax
Call #: K5087.S4 F76 2014
Publisher:


Most people believe that it is sometimes morally permissible for a person to use force to defend herself or others against harm. In Defensive Killing, Helen Frowe offers a detailed exploration of when and why the use of such force is permissible. She begins by considering the use of force between individuals, investigating both the circumstances under which an attacker forfeits her right not to be harmed, and the distinct question of when it is all-things-considered permissible to use force against an attacker. Frowe then extends this enquiry to war, defending the view that we should judge the ethics of killing in war by the moral rules that govern killing between individuals. Find out more (catalog link)

Consent in the law is a much debated and unquestionably problematic notion, uniform definition and application of which to different situations can be both difficult to achieve, and inappropriate. This book explores the legal notion of consent, arguing that when it is applied to situations of human trafficking, migration and sexual exploitation, it presents a series of problems and issues which the current law may be inadequate to address. The book addresses the nature and role of consent in the transnational trade in women for sexual exploitation. Find out more (catalog link)
