Featured Resource List

Peter Henner. Human rights and the alien tort statute : law, history, and analysis. American Bar Association, c2009.

KF 1309.5.H46 2009

 

The book places the Alien Tort Statute in perspective, from its original enactment as a jurisdictional statute in 1789, through its evolution into a vehicle for human rights litigation. It includes in-depth analysis of the legal decisions that have been handed down with respect to its interpretation and application, and describes the theoretical issues, practical considerations, and anticipated prospective development of the statute. It also examines the relationship between the Alien Tort Statute and two issues which have received particular attention during the Bush administration: the use of torture by United States officials and the practice of extraordinary rendition.
