Alexander Gillespie

Protected Areas and International Environmental Law

Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2007

K3525.G55 2007


This book explains the way that protected areas are created, listed and managed in international law. It provides a complete overview of the primary international and regional conventions in this area, and the decisions and resolutions that have come from them. For each of these conventions, the values, selection considerations, management, and compliance considerations are examined in detail and linked to examples from well known protected sites of international significance.


Alan Rogers

Murder and the Death Penalty in Massachusetts

University of Massachusetts Press, 2008

KFM2965.C2R64 2008


This book is an account of how the efforts of reformers and abolitionists and the Supreme Judicial Court's commitment to the rule of law ultimately converged to end the death penalty in Massachusetts. Throughout the state’s history, the death penalty’s use was limited, and capital defendants’ rights were repeatedly expanded.  The turning point came when the trials and executions of Sacco and Vanzetti focused unwanted international and national attention on Massachusetts. The newly formed Massachusetts Council Against the Death Penalty lobbied the legislature, and convinced a string of governors not to sign death warrants. In the 1970s the focus shifted to the courts, and eventually, in 1980, the Supreme Judicial Court abolished the death penalty on the grounds that it violated the Massachusetts Constitution.
