Kingsley Chiedu Moghalu, foreword by Pierre-Richard Prosper

Global justice : the politics of war crimes trials, Praeger Security International, c2006.

KZ1190.M64 2006

 

In Global Justice, Moghalu, a legal advisor to the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, argues that international justice has run into a crisis of legitimacy.   He traces the development of international war crimes trials from the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials after World War II to the tribunals that were created more recently in the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda, and the creation of the International Criminal Court.  Moghalu believes that even though international tribunals were designed to globalize justice, they only serve as vehicles for major states’ ends.  He finds that while international trials will remain a policy option, local or regional responses to mass atrocities will likely prove more durable.

 

Rena I. Steinzor

Mother Earth and Uncle Sam : how pollution and hollow government hurt our kids, 1st ed., University of Texas Press, 2008.

KF3775.S74 2008

In this book, Rena Steinzor discusses the ways in which the government has failed to protect children from harm by toxic chemicals over the past 20 years. She states that society is neglecting children's health, primarily due to the erosion of the government's role in protecting public health and the environment. Steinzor focuses on three case studies - mercury contamination through the human food chain, perchlorate (rocket fuel) in drinking water, and the effects of ozone (smog) on children playing outdoors—to provide evidence for her assertions about the existing dysfunctional system.  She then recommends a series of reforms that could reverse these detrimental trends and serve as a guide for restoring effective governmental intervention.
