Peters, Rudolph

Crime and Punishment in Islamic Law: Theory and Practice from the Sixteenth to the Twenty-first Century

Cambridge University Press 2006

KBP3791.P48 2995

In Crime and Punishment in Islamic Law: Theory and Practice from the Sixteenth to the Twenty-first Century, Rudolph Peters examines the creation and implementation of Islamic criminal law from the 16th century to the 21st century. The author starts by reviewing the initial creation of Islamic criminal law by Muslim scholars. He then examines how Islamic criminal law was implemented by various Muslim countries during the subject time period. Much of the review centers around criminal law in the Ottoman Empire because the empire’s detailed criminal justice records are still available. Finally, the book reviews the fate of Islamic criminal law after the Muslim countries were colonized by Western nations. Some colonial governments immediately replaced the Islamic criminal law with western criminal codes, while other countries incorporated Islamic criminal law into their colonial legal system.


 

 

 

Stover, Eric

The Witnesses: War Crimes and the Promise of Justice in The Hauge

University of Pennsylvania Press 2005

KZ1203.A2S76 2005

 

In The Witnesses: War Crimes and the Promise of Justice in the Hauge, author Eric Stover reviews the experiences of witnesses who testified at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Stover was inspired to research and write this book after he discovered that the many victims of the Yugoslavia war crimes held the UN court in very low regard. The book reviews the theoretical goals of the court and the actual experiences of the war crime witnesses.

Stover states that he had three goals in writing the book:

1. Examine the motivations, attitudes, and experiences of war crime witnesses who testified in the court, and determine any positive or negative consequences that the witnesses experienced as a result of their testimony.

2. Provide the judges and lawyers of the Hague tribunal and other international courts with insight into the experiences of war crime witnesses, so that the tribunals may better meet the needs of future witnesses.

3. Move the debate about justice away from a discussion of abstract ideas, and towards a more grounded examination of how the actions of the court affect the everyday lives of war crime victims.
