M. Cherif Bassiouni

The 1998 Statute of the International Criminal Court was the realization (albeit imperfect) of the oldest and longest-postponed item on the UN agenda, a judicial arm that could enforce the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Genocide Convention. For scholars studying this slow but crucial development in the international law of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide, here is the essential documentary history: the draft statutes of 1951, 1953, 1981, and 1994, along with various related reports, the 1998 Statute, and commentary by Professor Bassiouni, who chaired the Drafting Committee of the 1998 Statute.

Anthony D'amato

In Anthony D'Amato's writing, two passions merge: law and language. His eloquence-and hence the sheer readability of his writing-is virtually a byword among teachers and students alike. This "introduction to law" is far from basic in its coverage, yet it never becomes mired in tedious detail or lost in impenetrable fog. It is perhaps the only reader-friendly book available today that truly clarifies the deep and basic concepts of law in general, and American law in particular.

George Ayittey

George Ayittey’s Indigenous African Institutions presents a detailed and convincing picture of pre-colonial and post-colonial Africa—its cultures, traditions, and indigenous institutions, including participatory democracy.

Contrasting traditional African society with both colonial rule and the currently prevalent one-man military dictatorship, Ayittey concludes that while colonialism was pernicious and brutal, it did not totally destroy native African institutions and in some ways even contributed to their survival and regeneration. The modern dictatorships under African “elites,” he argues, are equally pernicious and brutal, and perhaps even more bent on the wholesale destruction of African institutions, squandering human resources, and diverting foreign aid funds to their own Swiss bank accounts.
