International prosecution of human rights crimes by Wolfgang Kaleck( )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The demand for accountability for human rights violations is heard throughout the world as never before. This volume explores current developments in the prosecution of human rights crimes on the national and international level. Experts from several countries discuss relevant topics from the academic debate, describe the practice in different countries, and analyze problems which have arisen in this new and exciting field of law. They strike a balance after the first years of the International Criminal Court and a growing universal jurisdiction practice and give the reader a present-day overview of attempts to bring justice to major figures like Augusto Pinochet and Donald Rumsfeld as well as lesser known ones. Emphasis is put on the emerging principle of universal jurisdiction and the effect of the 'war on terror' on legal norms. While the latter threatens to weaken and, in some respect, destroy long standing principles of international law, the developing practice of universal jurisdiction offers new resources for dealing with international crimes. The book examines the tension between these two phenomena and its meaning for international criminal law and the implementation of human rights"--Unedited summary from book cover

You back the attack! We'll bomb who we want! : remixed war propaganda by Micah Ian Wright( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"You Back the Attack! is the brainchild of U.S. Airborne Ranger turned dissident comic book artist Micah Wright. Stunning, hilarious, and politically incendiary, this full-color poster book reworks classic American World War I and II propaganda into commentaries on war, peace, and patriotism for the post-September 11 era. The forty one-sided posters make fun of war mentality, the Bush White House, Homeland Security, the War on Terror, Ashcroft, the 2000 Presidential election, the military-industrial complex, and much more. Forty posters of yesteryear such as Uncle Sam's "I Want You," and "Loose Lips Sink Ships" are reworked with new messages of peace and protest."--Jacket

The Center's Project on the Ku Klux Klan litigated Crumsey v. Justice Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (E.D.

Since that verdict, the Center has vigorously pursued the Klansmen, in spite of the problems of collection. This book is a culmination of that work, intended to help familiarize lawyers with this type of litigation

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sobering report by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley adds a new chapter to the chronicle of America's dismal descent into the netherworld of prisoner abuse since the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Carefully researched and devoid of rhetoric, it traces the missteps that disfigured an internationally admired nation and tainted its self-proclaimed ideals of humane treatment and justice for all. Through the voices of detainees formerly held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan and Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, the report provides new insights into the lingering consequences of unjust detention and the corrupted processes developed n the desperate months following 9/11

Silencing political dissent by Nancy Chang( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just six weeks after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Congress overwhelmingly approved the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act, better known by its acronym, the USA Patriot Act. This hastily-drafted, complex, and far-reaching legislation spans 342 pages. Yet it was passed with virtually no public hearing or debate and was accompanied by neither a conference nor a committee report. This timely and lucid analysis examines how the new law endows the executive branch with vast unchecked powers, erodes civil liberties and privacy, and impacts immigrants

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most comprehensive primary source account ever published of ongoing abuse at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Bay prison, detailing systematic physical, psychological, sexual, medical and religious abuse of detainees, filling 51 pages and 279 footnotes. The report is particularly significant in light of the Supreme Court's recent Hamdan decision because it catalogues conduct by U.S. officials in violation of the Geneva Conventions, which the court applied to detainees, and analyzes the administration's attempt to create a "legal black hole" for enemy combatants in sections discussing the administration's liability concerns regarding conduct at the base Geneva, war crimes, and the forthcoming revisions to the Army Field Manual. Examples are "drawn directly from habeas counsels' unclassified notes" taken during interviews with the Guantanamo detainees
