State crime : current perspectives by Dawn Rothe( )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 2,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current media and political discourse on crime has long ignored crimes committed by States themselves, despite their greater financial and human toll. For the past two decades, scholars have examined how and why States violate their own laws and international law and explored what can be done to reduce or prevent these injustices. Through a collection of essays by leading scholars in the field, State Crime offers a set of cases exemplifying state criminality along with various methods for controlling governmental transgressions. With topics ranging from crimes of aggression to nuclear weapons to the construction and implementation of social controls, this volume is an indispensable resource for those who examine the behavior of States and those who study crime in its varied forms

The first part of the book addresses general issues pertaining to the categorization of CAH in normative jurisprudential and doctrinal terms. This is followed by an analysis of the specific contents of CAH, describing its historic phases going through international criminal tribunals, mixed model tribunals, and the International Criminal Court. This includes both a normative and jurisprudential assessment as well as a review of doctrinal material commenting on all of the above. The book examines the general parts and defenses of the crime, along with the history and jurisprudence of both international and national prosecutions. For the first time, a list of all countries that have enacted national legislation specifically directed at CAH is collected, along with all of the national prosecutions that have occurred under national legislation up to 2010.

The criminal justice system of the USSR by M. Cherif Bassiouni( Book )

9 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THIS IS THE FIRST BOOK on the Criminal Justice System of the USSR written entirely by Scholars from the USSR, in collaboration with a U.S. academician, for publication in the U.S. As such it is a landmark in the history of joint projects between jurists from these two countries. The idea for such a project was developed during this writer's visit to the USSR in 1976. The visit itself was due to cooperative relations between this writer and the All Union Institute for the Study of Causes and Development of Measures of Crime Prevention and its distinguished Director, Professor Klotchkov, who is
Crimes against humanity in international criminal law by M. Cherif Bassiouni( Book )

26 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this revised edition, Professor Bassiouni persuasively established the legal validity of the Nuremberg Charter and describes the evolution of 'crimes against humanity' from 1945 to the 1988 ICC Statute. The book's comprehensive historical and legal analysis starts with the origins of that crime in the international regulation of armed conflicts and covers the Nuremberg, Tokyo and Allied Prosecutions after World War II, subsequent national prosecutions, as well as the Statutes of the ICTY, ICTR and their jurisprudence, and the Statute of the ICC. The Nuremberg Charter first established 'crimes against humanity' in positive international criminal law, but it raised lingering legal issues. This book examines the then different international legal formulations which were developed, particularly with their overlap with genocide and war crimes, and sorts out the confusion regarding the legal characteristics of that crime. The meticulous and thorough analysis of all relevant legal issues, many of which are not covered elsewhere includes: principles of legality, criminal responsibility for decisionmakers and others, command responsibility, obedience to superior orders and other defences, specific contents and their counterpart in national laws, policy considerations, and the applicability of this crime to non-State actors. The wealth of information and detailed discussion of international and national prosecutions and their failures make a compelling case for more effective enforcement in the future. The author brings to this book well-known scholarship, and unique practical experiences as Chairman of the U.N. Commission that investigated these crimes in the former Yugoslavia, and as Chairman of the ICC's Drafting Committee at Rome. The breadth and depth of this exhaustively documented book makes it the definitive authority on 'crimes against humanity'"--Unedited summary from book cover
