Con exhaustividad y detalle, estos dos eminentes abogados especialistas en Derechos Humanos investigan la muerte del revolucionario más estudiado de todos y, al hacerlo, relatan todo el arco de la notable vida del Che, enfocándose en sus días en Bolivia, donde luego de meses de lucha en un intento por expandir la Revolución comenzada en La Habana, resulta herido, capturado y ejecutado."--
America's disappeared : detainees, secret imprisonment, and the "War on Terror" by Rachel Meeropol( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
The confirmation proceedings for Alberto R. Gonzales and Condeleeza Rice, like the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, triggered a national debate about the U.S. government's controversial treatment of detainees and its practice of torture. At the heart of the debate is the question: Is the United States undermining democracy, freedom, and human rights in it's effort to protect its citizens from terrorism' The authors of AMERICA'S DISAPPEARED answer, yes. AMERICA'S DISAPPEARED describes how the U.S. government, in response to the events of 9/11, launched an unprecedented campaign of racial profiling, detentions, and deportations so grievous as to evoke the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. It brings together, for the first time, detainees' own testimonies along with analysis by the leading constitutional attorneys and human rights advocates. In addition to a detailed exploration of detention'the forms currently in use, and the conditions of each'the book challenges the Bush administration's justifications for violating the Geneva Conventions and the most basic definitions of human rights

International prosecution of human rights crimes by Wolfgang Kaleck( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
1 In his separate opinion in the Nuclear Weapons case, Judge Mohammed Bed- oui, then the President of the International Court of Justice, called nuclear we- ons "the absolute evil. " There are a few other things which merit being called - solutely evil. They are the predicates of the International Criminal Court and of various domestic laws patterned on the Rome Statute: war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, and aggression. A conference organized by the Berlin-based Republikanischer Anwältinnen- und Anwälteverein (Republican Lawyers As- ciation) and the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights was held in Berlin in June 2005 under the title Globalverfassung versus Realpolitik (Global Constitution versus Realpolitik). It dealt with the tension between these univ- sally accepted norms and the actual practice of governments in an age charact- ized by the ill-defined concept of the "war on terror. " This book is the outcome of that conference. It is intended for a wide variety of readers: academics, all kinds of jurists, as well as human rights activists, who sometimes know more about the applicable law than the legal experts. It owes its existence to a paradox: On the one hand, new structures for dealing with the most serious international crimes are being put into place

Producing Oil and Natural Gas from Shale : Economic and Budgetary Effects ( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
"Recent advances in combining two drilling techniques, hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, have allowed access to large deposits of shale resources—that is, crude oil and natural gas trapped in shale and certain other dense rock formations. As a result, the cost of that “tight oil” and “shale gas” has become competitive with the cost of oil and gas extracted from other sources. Virtually nonexistent a decade ago, the development of shale resources has boomed in the United States, producing about 3.5 million barrels of tight oil per day and about 9.5 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of shale gas per year. This book discusses the economic and budgetary effects of producing oil and natural gas from shale. It also examines the production, infrastructure, and market issues in U.S. shale gas development; and potential budgetary effects of immediately opening most federal lands to oil and gas leasing." --Publisher's website

Europe's energy security options and challenges to natural gas supply diversification ( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Europe as a major energy consumer faces a number of challenges when addressing future energy needs. As a result, energy supply security has become a key concern for European nations and the European Union (EU). A key element of the EU's energy supply strategy has been to shift to a greater use of natural gas. If trends continue as projected, Europe's dependence on Russia as a supplier is likely to grow. This report focuses on potential approaches that Europe might employ to diversify its sources of natural gas supply, and Russia's role, as well as identifying some of the issues hindering efforts to develop alternative suppliers of natural gas. The report assesses the potential suppliers of natural gas to Europe and the short- to medium-term hurdles needed to be overcome for those suppliers to be credible, long-term providers of natural gas to Europe. The report looks at North Africa, probably the most realistic supply alternative in the near-term, but notes that the region will have to resolve its current political and economic instability as well as the internal structural changes to the natural gas industry. Central Asia, which may have the greatest amounts of natural gas, would need to construct lengthy pipelines through multiple countries to move its natural gas to Europe
