In this context, the regulation of shipping and other human activities under the Law of the Sea Convention and, in particular, the regime for special areas under Article 211(6) of the Convention are addressed. Global and regional instruments containing mechanisms to protect specific areas are discussed and relevant State practice is considered with a view to possible implications on customary international law.

Logic of law making in Islam : women and prayer in the legal tradition / Behnam Sadeghi, Stanford University.

Location: lax
Call #: KBP144 .S227 2013
Publisher:


This pioneering study examines the process of reasoning in Islamic law. Some of the key questions addressed here include whether sacred law operates differently from secular law, why laws change or stay the same and how different cultural and historical settings impact the development of legal rulings. In order to explore these questions, the author examines the decisions of thirty jurists from the largest legal tradition in Islam: the Hanafi school of law. He traces their rulings on the question of women and communal prayer across a very broad period of time – from the eighth to the eighteenth century – to demonstrate how jurists interpreted the law and reconciled their decisions with the scripture and the sayings of the Prophet. The result is a fascinating overview of how Islamic law has evolved and the thinking behind individual rulings. Find out more (catalog link)

Judicial reconstruction and the rule of law : reassessing military intervention in Iraq and beyond / by Angeline Lewis.

Location: lax
Call #: K3171 .L49 2012
Publisher: Martinus Nijhoff Pub.,


The idea of building a blueprint `rule of law' through military intervention has seized the imagination of practitioners and theorists alike in the past decade of peacebuilding operations, and an emphasis on simultaneous judicial reconstruction and security sector reform has emerged as their central strategy. This work, in a fresh approach based on recent military operations in Iraq and beyond, challenges both the universality of the blueprint and the doctrinal assumption that institutional reform by military interveners builds peace and legitimacy. In a comprehensive review, the essential role of the community in developing its own relationship with law, while interveners refocus exclusively on restoring public security using their extraordinary powers under international humanitarian law, emerges as the only future for `rule of law operations.'

Gray wolves and the Endangered Species Act / Chase Ewing and Roger H. Cooley, editors.

Location: lax
Call #: KF5640 .G73 2012
Publisher: Nova Science Publishers,


The wolf was among the first animals protected under the Endangered Species Preservation Act, a predecessor to the current Endangered Species Act (ESA). In 1978 the gray wolf was listed as endangered in all of the conterminous 48 states except Minnesota, where it was listed as threatened. With the exception of experimental populations established in the 1990s, the protections for the gray wolf have been diminishing since that date, as wolf populations have increased in some areas. The use of distinct population segments (DPSs), a term created in the 1978 ESA amendments, has played a role in that reduced protection. DPSs allow vertebrate species to be divided into distinct groups, based on geography and genetic distinctions. 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)

Location: lax
Call #: K3791 .P48 2013
Publisher: Martinus Nijhoff Publishers,


Although it is precious to all humanity, including future generations, cultural property is targeted wilfully during armed conflict. In the litany of other war crimes the wilful destruction of cultural property is pushed from centre stage. The deliberate destruction of the Old Bridge of Mostar is emblematic of tragedies wrought on priceless cultural objects internationally. Drawing on the relevant rules of international humanitarian law and the jurisprudence of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, this book analyses the normative implications of the deliberate targeting and destruction of the Old Bridge and also examines enforcement efforts in order to identify issues relating to international legal protection of cultural property arising from this incident.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3989 .B36 2013

The book looks at such pivotal cases as the 1922 Supreme Court case which held that federal antitrust laws did not apply to baseball; the 1972 Flood v. Kuhn decision that declared that baseball is exempt even from state antitrust laws; and several cases from the 1950s, one involving boxing and the other football, that made clear that the exemption is only for baseball, not for sports in general.

Interception of vessels on the high seas : contemporary challenges to the legal order of the oceans / Efthymios Papastavridis.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ6578 .P37 2013
Publisher:


The principal aim of this book is to address the international legal questions arising from the 'right of visit on the high seas' in the 21st century. This right is considered the most significant exception to the fundamental principle of the freedom of the high seas (the freedom, in peacetime, to remain free of interference by ships of another flag). It is this freedom that has been challenged by a recent significant increase in interceptions to counter the threats of international terrorism and WMD proliferation, or to suppress transnational organised crime at sea, particularly the trafficking of narcotics and smuggling of migrants. The author questions whether the principle of non-interference has been so significantly curtailed as to have lost its relevance in the contemporary legal order of the oceans.

This book considers how these technological controls are satisfying corporations' and governments' demands for greater predictability in Internet usage. Find out more (catalog link)

Publisher:


In this history of debate over journalists' confidential sources, starting in 1894, Smith employs contemporary theories of constitutional interpretation to weave a surprising narrative melding legislature-made statutory law and court-made constitutional law. Working under the banner of popular constitutionalism, Smith tests Michael Gerhardt's theory of non-judicial precedents to illuminate the role journalists and press advocates played in shaping the path of constitutional law and giving voice to deeply felt First Amendment values. Along the way, the author corrects the historical record in important ways, including recasting events that led to the nation's first shield law in 1896. Find out more (catalog link)

A former Marine judge advocate and legal counsel to General Colin Powell, James Terry explores the genesis of the United States approach to terror violence and the legal foundation for the nations response to the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The author examines the development of rules of engagement and their application in the terrorist environment while differentiating the law of self-defense in this environment from more traditional conflicts. He also addresses the role of interrogation, and the line between harsh interrogation and torture, and the jurisdictional claims that arise.This volume examines a large number of topics related to the struggle and in a remarkably concise exploration, makes them understandable to experts in international law as well as those who do not have a strong background in the field.

Ideas in conflict : international law and the global war on terror / Eric Engle.

Location: lax
Call #: KZ3410 .E545 2013
Publisher:


Ideas in Conflict: International Law and the War on Terror describes the transformation of international law and sovereignty in the post-war world. It imparts the causes and consequences of the rise of non-State actors' importance in international law, with a focus on human rights and terrorism as two examples of this phenomenon. After World War II, international law transformed itself radically: human rights took a central role in the post-war world as the legitimator of States, and as a key objective of the international system as one of the steps to prevent another global war. State sovereignty likewise transformed from an absolute, indivisible, and ultimate power of States into relativized and transferable quanta of State power, which in turn were partially parceled upward to international organizations, downward to sub-State public law actors, and outward to private law actors. Terrorism is one of the latest challenges posed to the international system by non-State actors. Find out more (catalog link)

Armed state building : confronting state failure, 1898-2012 / Paul D. Miller.

Location: lax
Call #: JZ6300 .M55 2013
Publisher:


In this book, Paul D. Miller brings his decade in the U.S. military, intelligence community, and policy worlds to bear on the question of what causes armed, international state-building campaigns by liberal powers to succeed or fail. The United States successfully rebuilt the West German and Japanese states after World War II but failed to build a functioning state in South Vietnam. After the Cold War the United Nations oversaw relatively successful campaigns to restore order, hold elections, and organize post-conflict reconstruction in Mozambique, Namibia, Nicaragua, and elsewhere, but those successes were overshadowed by catastrophes in Angola, Liberia, and Somalia. The recent effort in Iraq and the ongoing one in Afghanistan-where Miller had firsthand military, intelligence, and policymaking experience-are yielding mixed results, despite the high levels of resources dedicated and the long duration of the missions there. Miller outlines different types of state failure, analyzes various levels of intervention that liberal states have tried in the state-building process, and distinguishes among the various failures and successes those efforts have provoked.

Pharmaceutical patents : issues and considerations / Florian Aerts, editor.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3133.D78 P53 2013
Publisher:


Although brand-name pharmaceutical companies routinely procure patents on their innovative medications, such rights are not self-enforcing. Brand-name firms that wish to enforce their patents against generic competitors must therefore commence litigation in the federal courts. Such litigation ordinarily terminates in either a judgement of infringement, which typically blocks generic competition until such time as the patent expires, or a judgement that the patent is invalid or not infringed, which typically opens the market to generic entry. This book introduces and analyses innovation and competition policy issues associated with pharmaceutical patent litigation settlements. It begins with a review of pharmaceutical patent litigation procedures under the Hatch-Waxman Act, then introduces the concept of reverse payment settlements, and analyses the status of reverse payment settlements under antitrust laws, and discusses congressional issues and possible alternatives.

In several states, teenagers who engage in "sexting" could be in violation of child pornography lawsand if convicted of such, teens could end up on sex offender lists with rapists and child molesters.

Terrorism is one of the latest challenges posed to the international system by non-state actors. The work argues that the U.S. response to the challenge of terrorism was unilateralist and disproportional, miscasting criminals into the role of warriors, whilst simultaneously seeking to legitimate torture and assassination, in violation of public international law. Through better understanding of the causes of terrorism (desperation) and the consequences of torture (polarization), the work hopes to help heal the international system of many of the avoidable conflicts of the past decade.

Since World War II, the world community has increasingly turned to international institutions as a way to monitor and improve states practices as relates to protecting individual human rights. 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. In this new work, Dutton examines the ICC and whether and how its enforcement mechanism influences state membership and the courts ability to realize treaty goals. Find out more (catalog link)

Applying Sharia in the West : facts, fears and the future of Islamic rules on family relations in the West / edited by Maurits S. Berger.

Location: lax
Call #: KBP173.25 .A67 2013
Publisher:


This volume provides new insights in the concept of shari'a in the West, and sets out a framework of how shari'a in the West can be studied. The premise of this volume is that one needs to focus on the question 'What do Muslims do in terms of shari'a?' rather than 'What is shari'a?'. This perspective shows that the practice of Sharia is restricted to a limited set of rules that mainly relate to religious rituals, family law and social interaction.

Intimate associations : the law and culture of American families / J. Herbie DiFonzo and Ruth C. Stern.

Location: lax
Call #: KF505 .D54 2013
Publisher:


The rise in divorce, cohabitation, single parenthood and same-sex partnerships along with an increase in surrogacy, adoption and assisted reproductive technologies has led to many diverse configurations of families, or intimate associations. The authors show that children of married parents fare better than children in a household formed by cohabiting adults. This is not to condemn non-traditional families but to point out that society and the law do not adequately provide for their needs. In conclusion, they call for a legal system that can adapt to the continually changing reality of family life. Find out more (catalog link)

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)

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)

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)

Internet privacy rights : rights to protect autonomy / Paul Bernal.

Location: lax
Call #: K3264.C65 B49 2014
Publisher: Cambridge University Press,


Internet Privacy Rights analyses the current threats to our online autonomy and privacy and proposes a new model for the gathering, retention and use of personal data. Key to the model is the development of specific privacy rights: a right to roam the internet with privacy, a right to monitor the monitors, a right to delete personal data and a right to create, assert and protect an online identity. These rights could help in the formulation of more effective and appropriate legislation, and shape more privacy-friendly business models. The conclusion examines how the internet might look with these rights in place and whether such an internet could be sustainable from both a governmental and a business perspective.
