The art of the possible : diplomatic alternatives in the Middle East by W. Michael Reisman( Book )

13 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 777 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Art of the Possible takes a hard look at the present play of forces in the Middle East. In full awareness of the historical, political, social, and psychological dimensions of the enmities of the region-and its most critical flashpoint, the Arab- Israeli conflict-it seeks realistic answers to the question ""What can be done?"" For each of the immediate foci of conflict, the author develops and proposes a workable plan: for the Sinai Peninsula, the establishment of a Sinai Development Trust; for the West Bank of the Jordan River, the creation of a Palestinian state; for the Golan Heights

International incidents : the law that counts in world politics by W. Michael Reisman( Book )

17 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What law "counts" in international politics? Does any? How are effective international norms established? This provocative book introduces a new way of looking at these questions. It shows that many international standards of acceptable conduct derive far less from adjudications, statutes, or treaties and far more from what is found to be acceptable in the conflicts that we today call international incidents. The contributors demonstrate how law that counts has been developed, modified, and terminated in a variety of dramatic international incidents: the Cosmos 954 satellite accident, the downing of Korean Air Lines Flight 007, the Harrods bombing, the Argentine invasion of the Falklands/Las Malvinas, the incursions of foreign submarines into Swedish waters, the Soviet gas pipeline problem, the situation in Lebanon, and the Gulf of Sidra incident. This volume is a first, experimental effort at establishing a format for a new and more relevant kind of international political and legal analysis. --Publisher description
Regulating covert action : practices, contexts, and policies of covert coercion abroad in international and American law by W. Michael Reisman( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and Japanese and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covert activity has always been a significant element of international politics. When it has served their interests, governments have secretly disseminated propaganda in other countries, manipulated foreign economies, and abetted coups against their adversaries. What are the circumstances, if any, in which it is lawful, under international law or United States law, to resort to covert action either directly or through local proxies? When is it right to do so? This book is the first to assess the lawfulness of covert action under international law. It includes as well a chapter on United States law and a candid discussion of the implications for democratic states that covert operations pose. W. Michael Reisman and James E. Baker identify different types of covert actions, discussing a variety of cases that include the Trujillo assassination in 1961, the Rainbow Warrior in 1985, and the raid on Libya in 1986. After explaining the complex operations of the international legal system, they explore trends in decision making and the conditions that accounted for them--whether the covert operations were proactive, defensive, or reactive. They examine in detail the procedures followed in the United States to authorize and oversee covert activity and propose guidelines for political leaders who may contemplate using covert techniques. An appendix reviews twenty years of allegations of covert aggression brought to the attention of the United Nations Security Council

Systems of control in international adjudication and arbitration : breakdown and repair by W. Michael Reisman( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a world where nations are increasingly interdependent and where their problems--whether environmental, economic, or military--have a global dimension, the resolution of international disputes has become critically important. In Systems of Control in International Adjudication and Arbitration, W. Michael Reisman, one of America's foremost scholars and practitioners of international law, examines the controls that govern arbitration--a method of alternative, private, and relatively unsupervised dispute resolution--and shows how these controls have broken down." "Reisman considers three major forms of international arbitration: in the International Court; under the auspices of the World Bank; and under the New York Convention of 1958. He discusses the unique structures of control in each form as well as the stresses they have sustained. Drawing on extensive research and his own experience as a participant in the resolution of some of the disputes discussed, Reisman analyzes recent key decisions, including the 1984 and 1986 cases of Nicaragua against the United States; Australia and New Zealand's attempt to stop France's nuclear testing in Muroroa; Klockner vs. Government of Cameroon, concerning the building of a major fertilizer plant in West Africa; AMCO vs. Republic of Indonesia, concerning the construction of a large tourist hotel in Asia; and numerous others. After establishing a context for each of these cases, Reisman details the manner of its adjudication, then evaluates--and occasionally questions--the decision ultimately reached." "Systems of Control in International Adjudication and Arbitration explores the implications of the breakdown of control systems and recommends methods of repair and reconstruction for each mode of arbitration. Providing a crucial perspective, this work will be an invaluable guide to both scholars and practitioners of international dispute resolution."--Jacket

26 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "International law's archipelago is composed of legal "islands", which are highly organized, and "offshore" zones, manifesting a much lower degree of legal organization. Each requires a different mode of decisionmaking, each further complicated by the stress of radical change. This General Course is concerned, first, with understanding and assessing the aggregate performance of the world constitutive process, in present and projected constructs; second, with providing the intellectual tools that can enable those involved in making decisions to be more effective, whether they are operating in islands or offshore; and, third, with inquiring into ways the international legal system might be improved. Reisman identifies the individual as the ultimate actor in international law and explores the dilemmas of meaningful individual commitment to a world order of human dignity amidst interlocking communities and overlapping loyalties."
