War and militarism in modern Japan : issues of history and identity by Ben-Ami Shillony( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A considerable amount of writing has been published on Japan at war in the Second World War, and more recently scholars have been revisiting the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-5; whereas this volume strives to examine Japan's twentieth-century approach to war and militarism in a wider perspective, bringing hitherto unexamined new themes and subject-matter under scrutiny up to the present day. Among the topics covered are the February 26 Incident in Theatre and Film, Ethnicity and Gender in Wartime Japanese Revue Theatre, Military Festivals and the Japanese Self-Defence Forces, Major Trends in Japanese Treatment of POW's in Modern Times, and Japan's 'Tug of War'after the Russian War. Published to mark the distinguished academic career of Ben-Ami Shillony, who retired in 2006, this volume also offers valuable new insights into the theme of the Japanese and the Jews, including the Story and Myth of Anne Frank and Sadako Sasaki, the involvement of Jewish scientists in the making of the atomic bomb, and Japan's Jewish Policy in the late 1930's

A descriptive and comparative grammar of western Old Japanese by Alexander Vovin( )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the revised, updated and enlarged second edition of the first detailed descriptive grammar in English (indeed, in any language other than Japanese and more complete than even any grammar in Japanese) dedicated to the Western Old Japanese, which was spoken in the Kansai region of Japan during the seventh and eighth centuries. The grammar is divided into two volumes, with the first volume dealing with sources, script, phonology, lexicon, nominals and adjectives. The second volume focuses on verbs, adverbs, particles, conjunctions and interjections. In addition to descriptive data, the grammar also includes comparisons between Western Old Japanese and Eastern Old Japanese and Ryukyuan, occasionally with a critical analysis of various external parallels"--
A descriptive grammar of Ket (Yenisei-Ostyak) by Stefan Georg( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Linguists and specialists on Siberia are generally familiar with the name Ket, which designates a small ethnic group on the Yenisei and their language, widely regarded as a linguistic enigma in many respects. Ket is a severely endangered language with today less than 500 native speakers. Together with Yugh, Kott, Arin, Assan and Pumpokol, all of which are completely extinct, it forms the Yeniseic family of languages, which has no known linguistic relatives. This Grammar of Ket constitutes the first book of its kind in English and is structured as follows: (1) Introduction; (2) The Kets and their Language; (3) Phonology; (4) Morphology; (5) References. A second volume is planned on Ket syntax, supported by a collection of original texts with translations and annotations

International military missions and international law by Marco Odello( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The law of armed conflict traditionally regulates the actions of states and armed groups, as well as individuals who participate in hostilities. It is increasingly evident that there are significant legal issues regarding the application of this law to the activities of international military missions, especially with regard to United Nations forcs and other international organisations because it is unclear how their activities are regulated by traditional sources of international law. The book explores the legal developments in addressing this challenge, including pertinent issues of human rights and international criminal law, elucidating the rights and obligations of all the actors, including states, international organisations and individuals, involved in international military missions"--Page 4 of cover

The annotated digest of the International Criminal Court by Cyril Laucci( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Annotated Digest of the International Criminal Court, 2008 , is the third volume in an annual series, which compiles a selection of the most significant legal findings from public decisions rendered by the International Criminal Court in 2008. A total of 472 public decisions were reviewed for the preparation of this volume. The selected abstracts include an extraordinary number of landmark decisions on substantive and procedural issues including, among others, the constitutive elements of crimes against humanity and war crimes, the rights of victims to participate in different stages of proceedings, the guarantees of a fair trial, and the prosecutorial obligation to disclose potentially exculpatory evidence in its possession. The year was marked by two new arrests, one in the situation from the Democratic Republic of Congo (Ngudjolo), the other in the situation from the Central African Republic (Bemba), as well as confirmation of charges in the joint case The Prosecutor volume Katanga and Ngudjolo . Finally, 2008 paved the way for commencement of the first trials in the history of the International Criminal Court, which officially began in 2009. Abstracts included in this series were selected based on the following criteria: (i) clarification of a legal issue or interpretation of a legal provision; (ii) implementation or application of a legal provision; and (iii) meaningfulness with respect to international justice, human rights, or international humanitarian law. Passages are normally quoted in English, except where the English translation has not been made available; in such circumstances, abstracts are provided in French with an accompanying English-language summary. Selected abstracts are organized under the relevant Statute, Rule of Procedure and Evidence, or Regulation of the Court. A short description or summary is provided for each topic, and a reference system and index allow for easy reference to other decisions quoted in the Digest series
Nordic health law in a European context : welfare state perspectives on patients' rights and biomedicine by Elisabeth Rynning( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This anthology aims to provide Nordic perspectives on the young and evolving field of health law - or biomedical law - by reflecting on issues that have been explored within the activities of the Nordic Network for Research in Biomedical Law. In the emergence of this fairly new legal discipline, it has become very clear that the Nordic region forms a part of Europe that has been strongly influenced by both hard and soft law initiatives from the European Union and the Council of Europe, but also that Nordic identity, culture, and collaboration clearly remain an important factor in the legal dev
International criminal law : a collection of international and regional instruments by Christine van den Wyngaert( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International Criminal Law has become a mainstream subject. While it was hardly taught at law faculties at the time of the first edition of this book (1996), it is now highly featured in academic curricula. Practitioners, academics and political decision makers are increasingly confronted with this discipline. Within the framework of the United Nations and the European Union, but also in other regional bodies, there has been a dramatic increase in the conventions on various aspects of international criminal law. In fact much of the day-to-day work of lawyers around the globe is about the subject. International criminal law is gradually supple-menting human rights as the standard to assess governments and individuals. In the process, it has become part of the vocabulary of the general public. Many recent crisis situations have contributed to this phenomenon, from 11/9 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to the Arab spring and SC Resolution 1973 (2011) giving effect to R2P in Libya. International criminal courts, which until some time ago, were still somewhat exotic, are now part of the mainstream international judicial establishment. The UN ad hoc tribunals together with the mixed tribunals and special courts have substantially con-tributed to the development of international criminal jurisprudence. Meanwhile the International Criminal Court is in full operation, delivering its first landmark decisions and dealing with an increasing number of situations and cases. In the European Union, the Lisbon Treaty is representing an important step towards the growing integration in the field of criminal law and procedure. A comparable trend is incipient in many other regions and organisations. This collection is meant to guide students and practitioners through the labyrinth of international criminal law instruments. It comprises international (universal) and Euro-pean conventions, while also including other regional instruments (AU/OAU, ASEAN, the Commonwealth, OAS and SAARC)
Sustainable development : towards a judicial interpretation by Rajendra Ramlogan( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sustainable development is the contemporary philosophy that is dominating the environmental protection movement. At a United Nations Conference in Johannesburg in 2002, sustainable development was defined as development that \'promote[s] the integration of economic development, social development and environmental protection-as interdependent and mutually reinforcing pillars.\' Sustainable Development: Towards a Judicial Interpretation examines the contribution of certain key aspects of environmental protection associated with the philosophy of sustainable development that has emerged in international, regional and national law including the right to a healthy environment. Topics include inter-generational equity, intra-generational equity, public participation in the developmental process, proper assessment of economic activities, the need for proper information, the precautionary principle, the polluter-pays principle, and access to justice. Presenting a succinct examination of international, regional and national legal regimes that provide a basis for supporting environmental protection in the global community through sustainable development, this book will be indispensible to legal practitioners, scholars and students interested in environmental law

International criminal justice in bello? : the ICC between law and politics in Darfur and Northern Uganda by Philipp Kastner( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The International Criminal Court (ICC) plays a particularly delicate role in situations of ongoing armed conflicts, both from a legal and a political perspective. While the primary objective of the ICC Statute is to end impunity, States Parties and the UN Security Council were mainly driven by political considerations when they triggered ICC jurisdiction over the situations in northern Uganda and Darfur. In this book, the author discusses strategies within the legal framework governing the Court to counter such politicization. He concludes that although the ICC can have beneficial effects on ongoing armed conflicts, its primary raison d'être [reason of existence] should not be to influence politics but to continue to fight impunity in the long run
