Ahmed Al-Dawoody. The Islamic law of war : justifications and regulations. Palgrave Macmillan, 2011.

KBP2416.A42 2011


This book explores the justifications and regulations for going to war in both international and domestic armed conflicts under Islamic law. Examined are the various kinds of use of force by both state and non-state actors in order to determine the nature of jihad, the Islamic law of war, and specifically whether Islamic law sanctions “holy war,” offensive war, or only defensive war. It also investigates the permissibility under Islamic law of resorting to the use of force to overthrow the governing regime and discusses the Islamic treatment of terrorism and the punishment of terrorists and their accomplices.








Emily M. Calhoun. Losing twice : harms of indifference in the Supreme Court. Oxford University Press, c2011.

KF8748.C25 2011


Constitutional 'losers' represent a thorny and longstanding problem in American constitutional law. Given our adversarial system, the way that rights cases are decided means that regardless of whether a losing side has committed any actions that cause harm to others, they typically suffer unnecessary harm as a consequence of decisions. This book draws upon conflict resolution theory, political theory, and Habermasian discourse theory to argue that in such cases, the Court must work harder to avoid inflicting unnecessary harm on Constitutional losers.
