International Injustice: Humanitarian Intervention and the Abuse of War Crimes Trials

Author: 

Szamuely, Szamuely, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

George Szamuely, Ph.D., is senior research fellow at the Global Policy Institute in London and author of Bombs for Peace: NATO’s Humanitarian War on Yugoslavia (2014).

International Injustice: Humanitarian Intervention and the Abuse of War Crimes Trials is a critical examination of Western military humanitarian interventions, with a particular focus on subsequent Western-organized war crimes trials that serve as post-facto justifications for the resort to force. International Injustice analyzes the NATO-led humanitarian intervention in Yugoslavia during the 1990s, an intervention that to this day continues to be cited as a successful exemplar of how to use force to achieve humanitarian outcomes.

Kent, Neil, University of Cambridge & Irina du Quenoy, Georgetown University (Editors)

Author: 

Heitzman, Chris

Credentials: 

Chris Heitzman has been a lawyer in private practice for the past 15 years and a keen observer of social and political affairs.

Book CoverWoke culture sells itself as the great progressive awakening of our time.

Those who refuse to subscribe to woke culture are dismissed as hateful people who must stand for the opposite of what woke culture stands for. Increasingly, anyone who questions the woke message is shouted down, de-platformed, and even cancelled.

The Age of Foolishness: A Doubter’s Guide to Constitutionalism in a Modern Democracy

Author: 

Allan, James

Credentials: 

James Allan is the Garrick Professor in Law at the University of Queensland, in Australia. He has published in leading constitutional and legal philosophy law journals and writes for The Spectator, Australia, The Australian, Quadrant, Law & Liberty, The National Post, among others.

The Age of Foolishness is a doubter’s guide to current lawyerly thinking about all things related to constitutionalism in a democracy. This book offers a thorough-going skeptical critique of the views that dominate our legal caste, including in law schools and among judges, and place too much weight on judges to resolve important social policy disputes and too little on democratic politics. The author argues that politics matters in a way that our legal orthodoxy often downplays.

Women and Art: A Post-Feminist View

Author: 

Adams, Alexander

Credentials: 

Alexander Adams is a British artist and writer. He studied fine art and art history at Goldsmiths College, London. His art has been exhibited worldwide and is in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), National Museum Cardiff, Walker Art Gallery (Liverpool), and other museums. His art criticism has been published in The Burlington Magazine, The Art Newspaper, Sculpture Journal, The Jackdaw, The British Art Journal, Apollo, Printmaking Today, Print Quarterly, and other outlets.

Adams is the author of Culture War, Iconoclasm: Identity Politics and the Erasure of History, Degas, Magritte, and Artivism.

Women & Art surveys the history of women in art and addresses the effects of feminist art history and art production. This book is among the first to offer a critical assessment of the role of feminism in art history and how it has presented and misrepresented women’s roles in art. Seeking to counterbalance overwhelmingly pro-feminist narratives, it relies on evidence from artists, statisticians, and historians to support individual women artists while remaining critical of feminism.
