John Gastil, et al. The jury and democracy : how jury deliberation promotes civic engagement and political participation. Oxford University Press, 2010.

KF8972.J87 2010

 

Alexis de Tocqueville, John Stuart Mill, and the U.S. Supreme Court have all alleged that jury service promotes civic and political engagement, yet none could prove it.  Finally, this book provides compelling systematic evidence to support this view. Drawing from in-depth interviews, thousands of juror surveys, and court and voting records from across the United States, the authors show that serving on a jury can trigger changes in how citizens view themselves, their peers, and their government--and can even significantly increase electoral turnout among infrequent voters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tom Ruys. 'Armed attack' and Article 51 of the UN Charter : evolutions in customary law and practice. Cambridge University Press, 2010.

KZ6374.R89 2010

 

This book examines to what extent the right of self-defense, as laid down in Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, permits States to launch military operations against other States.  In particular, it focuses on the occurrence of an 'armed attack' - the crucial trigger for the activation of this right.  The notion of 'armed attack' is examined from a threefold perspective.  What acts can be regarded as an 'armed attack'?  When can an 'armed attack' be considered to take place?  And from whom must an 'armed attack' emanate?
