Bharat H. Desai. Multilateral environmental agreements : legal status of the secretariats. Cambridge University Press, 2010.

K3585.D479 2010

 

This book examines the genesis, development, and proliferation of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs), their ad hoc treaty-based status, and the issue of the legal personality of their secretariats.  It also offers an account of the growing phenomenon in which an existing international institution provides a servicing base for an MEA that, in turn, triggers a chain of legal implications involving the secretariat, the host institution, and the host country.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laughlin McDonald. American Indians and the fight for equal voting rights. University of Oklahoma Press, c2010.

KF8210.S84M34 2010

 

This book explores the American Indian fight for equal voting rights and documents how non-Indian officials have tried to maintain dominance over Native peoples despite the rights they are guaranteed as American citizens.  It examines litigation involving discriminatory election practices such as at-large elections, redistricting plans crafted to dilute voting strength, unfounded allegations of election fraud on reservations, burdensome identification and registration requirements, lack of language assistance, and noncompliance with the Voting Rights Act.
