Victor M. Hansen, Lawrence Friedman. The case for Congress : separation of powers and the War on Terror. Ashgate, c2009.

KF4565.H36 2009

 

This book examines the constitutional relationship between Congress and the President in the post-September 11 world, arguing that Congress should exercise its legitimate authority in guiding United States policy. As a national consensus has developed around the notion that the Bush administration made grave errors in its policy decisions, a reminder of the leading role that Congress can play in those decisions is particularly appropriate. Unlike scholarly work devoted either to detailing or criticizing the Bush administration's policy decisions, this accessible and balanced book focuses on the policies themselves, and on the way in which Congress can influence those policies for the better.

 

 

 

 

 

Namira Negm. Transfer of nuclear technology under international law : case study of Iraq, Iran and Israel. Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2009.

KZ5770.N44 2009

 

In this book the author assesses the rules and implementation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty,

the arrangements of the supplier groups, and international cooperation to transfer nuclear technology, in order to answer a number of questions. Among these are whether the rules are adequate to guarantee the transfer of nuclear technology for peaceful purposes, whether measures are sufficient to prevent the diversion of material from peaceful to military uses, whether there are inherent failures in international rules governing non-proliferation, and how failure in the rules or implementation affects efforts to establish a nuclear weapon free zone in the Middle East.
