Cyberlaw: Legal Principles of Emerging Technologies
Upper Saddle River, N.J.: Pearson/Prentice Hall, 2005
Cyberlaw has developed rapidly in response to the creation of new technology and the internet. This text presents the various legal issues, legislative and judicial responses, that apply to the operation and development of computer technology. It provides students with a comprehensive coverage of e-business divided into three distinct sections: contract formation, financing, and tax issues. It also supplies explanations of key terms, chapter overviews and reviews, relevant key cases, and a list of related websites that provide additional and advanced information.
James C. Hathaway
Cambridge, New York: Cambridge University Press, 2005
In one volume, this book covers national and international court decisions on refugee law and lays the foundation for a comprehensive analysis of the human rights of refugees as set by the UN Refugee Convention. Professor Hathaway has been described as the “intellectual architect of contemporary refugee law” and is respected in the international legal community for his interesting and provocative scholarship. In this study of the rights of refugees, he provides analysis of difficult protection challenges and guidance beyond the refugee definitions set by Article 1 of the Convention. Maintaining the object and purpose of the text of the Convention he interprets the primary requirements of international human rights law and clearly presents the rights owed to refugees and asylum seekers at all stages in the search for protection. This is a major resource for judges, attorneys, policymakers and students of international and human rights law.
