The powers of war and peace the constitution and foreign affairs after 9/11 by John Yoo ( )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
John Yoo examines the constitutional framework for decisions about foreign affairs, particularly the powers of war and peace. He points out that from Truman and Korea to Clinton's intervention in Kosovo, US presidents have had to act decisively on the world stage without a declaration of war
Crisis and command : the history of executive power from George Washington to George W. Bush by John Yoo ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
However bitter, complex, and urgent today's controversies over executive power may be, Yoo reminds readers that they are nothing new. Here, he explores a factor too little consulted in current debates: the past. Through shrewd and lucid analysis, he shows how the bold decisions made by Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, and FDR changed more than just history; they also transformed the role of the American president
War by other means : an insider's account of the war on terror by John Yoo ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taming globalization : international law, the U.S. Constitution, and the new world order by Julian Ku ( Book )
11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1997, a Mexican national named Josob Ernesto Medellin was sentenced to death for raping and murdering two teenage girls in Texas. In 2004, the International Court of Justice ruled that he was entitled to a new trial, since the arresting officers had not informed him of his right to seek assistance from the Mexican consulate prior to trial, as prescribed by a treaty ratified by Congress in 1963. In 2008, amid fierce controversy, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that the international ruling had no weight. Medellin subsequently was executed. As John Yoo and Julian Ku show in Taming Globalization, the Medellin case only hints at the legal complications that will embroil American courts in the twenty-first century. Like Medellin, tens of millions of foreign citizens live in the United States; and like the International Court of Justice, dozens of international institutions cast a legal net across the globe, from border commissions to the World Trade Organization. Yoo and Ku argue that all this presents an unavoidable challenge to American constitutional law, particularly the separation of powers between the branches of federal government and between Washington and the states. To reconcile the demands of globalization with a traditional, formal constitutional structure, they write, we must re-conceptualize the Constitution, as Americans did in the early twentieth century, when faced with nationalization. They identify three "mediating devices" we must embrace: non-self-execution of treaties, recognition of the President's power to terminate international agreements and interpret international law, and a reliance on state implementation of international law and agreements. These devices will help us avoid constitutional difficulties while still gaining the benefits of international cooperation. Written by a leading advocate of executive power and a fellow Constitutional scholar, Taming Globalization promises to spark widespread debate"--

Point of attack : preventive war, international law, and global welfare by John Yoo ( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'Point of Attack' argues that the time has come to replace the international rules of war. Current law permits nations to resort to force only in self-defence or under UN authority, which perversely allows mass civilian killings, civil wars, weapons proliferation, and terrorism to run rampant. A new approach should allow the great powers to intervene when a war would benefit global welfare more than the costs

The Tenth Amendment and state sovereignty : constitutional history and contemporary issues by Mark Robert Killenbeck ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the wake of the 2000 Election, the relationship between the Supreme Court and the American states has become more important. Once derided by the Supreme Court as a 'truism, ' the Tenth Amendment has in recent years been transformed from a neglected provision into a vital 'first principle.' As such, it has provided the foundation for a series of decisions in which the Supreme Court has elevated the status of the states, often at the expense of federal power and in the face of previously settled assumptions. In this important volume, four prominent scholars-two historians and two law professor

Authority for use of military force to combat terrorist activities within the United States by John Yoo ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
