The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) was the first and most celebrated of a wave of international criminal tribunals (ICTs) built in the 1990s and designed to advance liberalism through international criminal law. Model(ing) Justice examines the practice and case law of the ICTY to make a novel theoretical analysis of the structural flaws inherent in ICTs as institutions that inhibit their contribution to social peace and prosperity. Kerstin Bree Carlson proposes a seminal analysis of the structural challenges to ICTs as socially constitutive institutions, setting the agenda for future considerations of how international organizations can perform and disseminate the goals articulated by political liberalism.

"This book provides an analysis of civil liability for environmental harm in an inter- and transnational context. It covers both liability of private parties and state liability under international and EC law, and discusses national law developments in this area. It explores in particular the relationship between public environmental law and private liability law. Applying an instrumental approach to legal instruments, it aims to redefine the role of liability in this heavily regulated area." -- from the Preface.

In 2006, Fidel Castro yielded power over Cuba to his younger brother Raúl, making him the first new president of the island nation in nearly five decades. Raúl has ushered in many changes and reforms, including allowing open criticism of the government, lifting the ban on personal electronics, and allowing farmers to purchase their own equipment. This timely work weaves together expert analysis with narrative accounts from current Cuban citizens to explore the economic, political, legal, and social changes occurring in Cuba under Raúl Castro’s presidency. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Nachdem die 1934 erschienene Erstauflage von Hans Kelsens Reine[r] Rechtslehre im Jahre 2008 als Studienausgabe erschienen ist, folgt nun im selben Format die Studienausgabe der Zweitauflage aus dem Jahre 1960. Zwischen den Auflagen 1934 und 1960 liegt nicht nur ein Vierteljahrhundert und ein Weltkrieg, sondern auch ein Umfangswachstum auf den fünffachen Wert und ein vielfältiger Reifungsprozess von Kelsens Allgemeiner Rechtslehre. Die Zweitauflage bildet zugleich Höhepunkt und Abschluss der sog. "Klassischen Phase" im rechtstheoretischen Werk Hans Kelsens. Überhaupt darf die auf Deutsch erschienene Zweitauflage, die in mehr als ein Dutzend andere Sprachen übersetzt worden ist, als die reifste und letzte geschlossene Darstellung der Reinen Rechtslehre gelten. Gemeinsam mit H.L.A. Harts Concept of Law (1961) stellt sie das wirkmächtigste Werk des modernen rechtstheoretischen Diskurses dar.Die vorliegende Studienausgabe enthält, anders als die seit 1992 publizierten Nachdrucke, auch den für das (Selbst-)Verständnis der Reinen Rechtslehre bedeutsamen Anhang zum Problem der Gerechtigkeit. Im Anmerkungsapparat sind darüber hinaus die aus Anlass der Übersetzung der Zweitauflage ins Italienische 1966 von Kelsen vorgenommenen Korrekturen am deutschen Text erstmals berücksichtigt worden.
