Remonda B. Kleinberg. The politics of international trade regulation in the developing world : law and policy of  preferential  treatment in the governance of world trade. Carolina Academic Press, c2011.

K3943.K575 2011

 

This book shows that as a relatively greater number of developing countries accede to the WTO and adopt rigorous obligations and commitments, the majority continue to depend heavily on special and differential treatment and unilateral preference programs.  As it stands presently, the relative marginalization of developing countries from the multilateral trade mechanism and the international legal instrument undermines, at least in the short term, the groundwork for a more integrated international system that addresses sustainable economic growth and development.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adam Winkler. Gunfight : the battle over the right to bear arms in America. W.W. Norton & Co., c2011.

KF3941.W56 2011

 

This book provides an examination of America's four-centuries-long political battle over gun control and the right to bear arms. The author uses the landmark 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller, which invalidated a law banning handguns in the nation's capital, as a springboard for a groundbreaking historical narrative.  Whether examining the Black Panthers' role in provoking the modern gun rights movement or Ronald Reagan's efforts to curtail gun ownership, the book weaves together the dramatic stories of gun rights advocates and gun control lobbyists, providing insights into the venomous debate that now cleaves our nation.
