Global Perspectives on Counterterrorism

By Amos N. Guiora

Aspen Publishers, 2007

K5256.G85 2007

 

Global Perspectives on Counterterrorism examines the four central aspects of counterterrorism; law, policy, intelligence gathering, and operational decisions. Through the comparison and analysis of five different nations' treatment of the subject; the United States, Spain, Russia, Israel and India, this book discusses a wide variety of issues pertinent to counterterrorism, including interrogations, the proper forum for trying terrorists, judicial review, international law, intelligence gathering, and policy responses to terrorism.

Intellectual Property and Free Trade Agreements

Edited by Christopher Heath and Anselm Kamperman Sanders

Hart, 2007

K1401.A6I68 2007

 

Intellectual Property and Free Trade Agreements presents the papers of the sixth IP conference organized by the Macau Institute of European Studies (IEEM) on intellectual property law and the economic challenges for Asia. The objective of the conferences is to provide up-to-date information on developments in global intellectual property law and policy and their impact on regional economic and cultural development. The current volume deals with the implications of free trade agreements for the international framework of intellectual property law, a topic of growing economic and legal importance given the increasing number of free trade agreements in force or under negotiation.
