  Jane Stromseth, David Wippman, Rosa Brooks Can might make rights? : building the rule of law after military interventions, Cambridge University Press, 2006. K3171.S77 2006 .   SUMMARY: This book looks at why it's so difficult to create 'the rule of law' in post-conflict societies such as Iraq and Afghanistan, and offers insights into how policy-makers and field-workers can improve future rule of law efforts. Speaking to readers who try to make sense of the international community's problems in Iraq and elsewhere, this book shows how a narrow focus on building institutions such as courts and legislatures could miss the more complex cultural issues that affect societal commitment to the values associated with the rule of law. The authors show the interconnectedness between the rule of law and other post-conflict priorities, such as reestablishing security. Finally the authors outline a pragmatic, synergistic approach to the rule of law which promises to reinvigorate debates about transitions to democracy and post-conflict reconstruction.  
   
  Jordan J. Paust et al.  Human rights module : on crimes against humanity, genocide, other crimes against human rights, and war crimes.  2nd ed.  Carolina Academic Press, c2006. K3240.H8572 2006.    SUMMARY: Being the revised extracts from the forthcoming International Criminal Law (3 ed. 2007), this new edition updates and expands the first.  It provides an up-to-date exploration of the “core” international crimes most often associated with human rights infractions for those interested in human rights and for use in international law courses, human rights courses, or seminars. There is also a separate chapter on sanctions against Karadzic that applies many of the core crimes in both criminal and civil sanctions arenas with respect to the conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Author Jordan J. Paust presents cases and materials in Part One and documents in Part Two.  This book is not only a great resource for courses focusing on crimes against humanity, genocide, and other crimes against human rights (and/or war crimes), readers interested in human rights will also find it informative.
