The Role of Customs in International Treaties (W. B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Liakopoulos, Dimitris: Tufts University

The Role of Customs in International Treaties concentrates on issues of friction between member states of the United Nations. In view of the role played by the United Nations in resolving international disputes, Dimitris Liakopoulos hypothesizes that "practical guides" based on custom often catalyze the positions taken by states, courts, scholars, and other actors, constituting an "orthodox" position against which formulaic legal opposition will become predictably more difficult.

Predicting Gender Violence in India: A Counterintuitive Theoretical Approach (St. James’s Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Vasudevan, Shritha K., University of Florida

In this provocative new book, Shritha Vasudevan argues that feminist international relations (IR) theory has inadvertently resulted in a biased worldview, the very opposite of what feminist IR set out to try to rectify. This book contests theoretical presumptions of Western feminist IR and attempts to reformulate it in contexts of non-Western cultures. Vasudevan deftly utilizes the theoretical constructs of IR to explore the ramifications for India.

Capital Punishment in American Courts

Author: 

Whisker, James B.:Professor Emeritus of Political Science, West Virginia University; Kevin R. Spiker, Associate Professor of Political Science, Ohio University

In the 400 years since the first known execution was carried out for treason in Virginia, American jurisdictions have debated both the appropriateness and methods of capital punishment. Over that time, courts have placed varying restrictions on its application, excluding categories of citizens (for example the insane or the underaged) and evaluating and excluding methods of execution by the U.S.

Command Responsibility: Holding Military Leaders Accountable for their Troops (W. B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Whisker, James B., Professor Emeritus of Political Science, West Virginia University; Kevin R. Spiker, Associate Professor of Political Science, Ohio University

Command responsibility, or executive accountability, assumes that leaders are responsible for the actions of their subordinates. If subordinates misbehave, violate basic moral laws, transgress international law, or thwart international standards of behavior, their leader may be called before to justice. Standards that set the boundaries of human action have been evolving for many millennia, with some degree of precision arriving after the post-World War II international war crimes prosecutions.

Law in Cameroon: A French Tradition (W. B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Bongyu, Moye Godwin Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Senior Lecturer of Public Law and Political Science, Dschang University, Cameroon

Colonialism led to the importation, or better still imposition, of European administrative systems on the indigenous people of Africa. France specialized in this, practicing direct rule and an assimilation policy in their colonies up to the time of independence. In Cameroon, French administrative law (“droit adminstratif”) became part of the national legal system.
