The price of terror : one bomb, one plane, 270 lives : the history-making struggle for justice after Pan Am 103 by Allan Gerson( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"President Bill Clinton called it "an attack against America," but after Libyan agents planted a bomb aboard Pan Am Flight 103, killing 259 people in the air and 11 on the ground, America did not strike back. Instead, the grieving relatives of the victims did the unthinkable - as mere civilians - and tried to force Libya to pay for its crime. Lawyers told the families that they could never sue Libya in American courts, and they were right. This would require changing a bed-rock principle of international law - a change that every government in the world feared and fought, including the United States itself." "Working virtually alone at first, Allan Gerson, a former diplomat and prosecutor of Nazi war criminals, took on the case and spent the next eight years on the families' quest for justice. In this high-stakes game of international power politics and legal maneuvering, there were friendships, jobs, and reputations lost, but a precious principle - that of accountability under the law - was strengthened and preserved. Now Gerson and his co-author, Newsweek writer Jerry Adler, follow the threads of this extraordinary tale back to that deadly night over Lockerbie, Scotland - and forward into a new era of international justice, when terrorists will learn to fear the righteous retribution of their own victims."--Jacket

Interrelationships of MMPI-2 validity scales in personal injury claims by David D Fox( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A sample of MMPI-2s of worker's compensation and personal injury cases (N=289) was gathered to examine the relationship of various indicators of exaggeration. Intercorrelations of the F, F-K, the MMPI Dissimulation Scale-revised (Ds-r), total of obvious minus subtle scales (O-S), Fake Gad Scale (FBS), VRIN, and TRIN were computed and the relative sensivity of each score calculated using various cut-offs. Factor analysis suggests that malingering may take the form of inconsistent responding as well as symptom exaggeration. Patients evaluated at the request of plaintiff attorneys showed a seemingly greater degree of symptom exaggeration and inconsistent responding than did those referred by defense counsel
