It reviews offences such as rebellion, treason, mutiny, espionage, sedition, terrorism, riot and unlawful assembly in the UK, US, Canada and Australia from a comparative perspective and investigates leading cases in their historical and political contexts. Also examining the impact on human rights and civil liberties, this book covers a neglected area of English-derived law and will encourage debate about crimes against states and governments"--Provided by publisher

Emergency powers in theory and practice : the long shadow of Carl Schmitt by Michael Head( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why have the early years of the 21st century seen increasing use of emergency-type powers or claims of supra-legal executive authority, particularly by the Western countries regarded as the world's leading democracies, notably the United States? This book examines the extraordinary range of executive and prerogative powers, emergency legislation, martial law provisos and indemnities in countries with English-derived legal systems, primarily the UK, the US and Australia. The author challenges attempts by legal and academic theorists to relativise, rationalise, legitimise or propose supposedly safe limits for the use of emergency powers, especially since the September 2001 terrorist attacks. This volume also considers why the reputation of Carl Schmitt, the best-known champion of 'exceptional' dictatorial powers during the post-1919 Weimer Republic in Germany, and who later enthusiastically served and sanctified the Nazi dictatorship, is being rehabilitated, and examines why his totalitarian doctrines are thought to be of relevance to modern society. -- from back cover
Calling out the troops : the Australian military and civil unrest : the legal and constitutional issues by Michael Head( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book raises a number of crucial issues that have received little public attention.

Military commanders are given sweeping powers, including to use lethal force, shoot down civilian aircraft, interrogate people, raid premises and seize documents. Part One reviews the contours, context and historical origins of the callout laws, and the underlying militarisation of aspects of society. Part Two examines the details of the laws and explores the legal and Constitutional questions. Part Three outlines the global parallels and probes the political implications

Marxism, revolution and law : the lively debates of early Soviet Russia by Michael Head( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in German and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1917 Soviet Revolution in Russia was an attempt to fundamentally reorganise economic, social and legal life along anti-capitalist, participatory and egalitarian lines. This book examines the vibrant debates and conflicts over the role of the law in the early days of the Russian Revolution. It considers the antithesis between the classical Marxist thesis that the state and the law will become redundant with the successful development of communism, a view that prevailed in the early Soviet legal debates, and the program imposed by the Stalinist dictatorship in the 1930s. In order to understand this contrast, this volume seeks to present a Marxist, that is to say, Trotskyist, analysis of the jurisprudence of the Russian Revolution. In sum, it endeavours to explore and clarify the decisive experiences of early Soviet Russia, from the standpoint of revolution and law. This study, shedding fresh light on much-neglected issues, should be of vital interest to students, scholars and the general public
