One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...

by Marie Mercat-Bruns and Elaine Holt

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s new open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Do the United States and France, both post-industrial democracies, differ in their views and laws concerning discrimination?

Bringing together prominent legal scholars—including Robert Post, Linda Krieger, Martha Minow, Reva Siegel, Susan Sturm, Richard Ford, and others—Mercat-Bruns demonstrates how the two nations have adopted divergent strategies. The United States continues, with mixed success at “colorblind” policies, to deal with issues of diversity in university enrollm...

Punishing the Criminal Corpse, 1700-1840: Aggravated Forms of the Death Penalty in England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Peter King

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book analyses the different types of post-execution punishments and other aggravated execution practices, the reasons why they were advocated, and the decision, enshrined in the Murder Act of 1752, to make two post-execution punishments, dissection and gibbeting, an integral part of sentences for murder. It traces the origins of the Act, and then explores the ways in which Act was actually put into practice. After identifying the dominance of penal dissection throughout the period, it looks at the abandonment of burning at the stake in the 1790s, the rapid decline of hanging in chains just after 1800, and the final abandonment of both dissection and gibbeting in 1832 and 1834. It concludes that the Act, by creating differentiation in...

Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.Precarious Claims tells the human story behind the bureaucratic process of fighting for justice in the U.S. workplace.

Women’s Employment Rights Guide

by United States Department of Labor and Women's Bureau

The growing share of women in the workforce has necessitated changes in many of the employment laws that provide workers with certain rights and protections. These laws can often be difficult to understand. In an evolving labor force, it is important for all working women to have and understand the information they need to gain equal and fair access to employment and job advancement opportunities. The Women’s Employment Rights Guide presents the major federal laws impacting women who are seeking employment, currently working, facing unemployment, or preparing for retirement. The Guide explains the rights and protections of federal laws, while also offering general information on state and local laws that may apply. In some cases, private sector workers have employment rights that are on...

Human Rights in Business: Removal of Barriers to Access to Justice in the European Union

by Juan José Álvarez Rubio and Katerina Yiannibas

The capacity to abuse, or in general affect the enjoyment of human, labour and environmental rights has risen with the increased social and economic power that multinational companies wield in the global economy. At the same time, it appears that it is difficult to regulate the activities of multinational companies in such a way that they conform to international human, labour and environmental rights standards. This has partially to do with the organization of companies into groups of separate legal persons, incorporated in different states, as well as with the complexity of the corporate supply chain. Absent a business and human rights treaty, a more coherent legal and policy approach is required.Faced with the challenge of how to effectively access the right to remedy in the European Un...

Legal aspects of foreign investments in developing countries

by Rino Siffert

In the world as globalized as it is nowadays, it is almost impossible to imagine an economy without foreign investments. A country’s attitude towards foreign investment greatly differ; some have a more open-minded legislation and it really makes no difference whether an investment is domestic or from another country, while some countries tend to be more cautious and still perceive foreign investments as uncommon and treat them as an exception. Be it as it may for any reason, one basically cannot argue that foreign investments are an important economic factor. The content of this book is the result of the authors’ professional experience from various capacities in which they dealt with foreign investments. The book is not intended to present an absolutely comprehensive research of all l...

The Complete Sherlock Holmes

by Arthur Conan Doyle

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional detective of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, who first appeared in publication in 1887. He is the creation of Scottish born author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A brilliant London-based detective, Holmes is famous for his intellectual prowess, and is renowned for his skillful use of deductive reasoning (somewhat mistakenly - see inductive reasoning) and astute observation to solve difficult cases.

Conan Doyle wrote four novels and fifty-six short stories that featured Holmes. All but four stories were narrated by Holmes' friend and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson, two having been narra...

History and Power in the Study of Law: New Directions in Legal Anthropology (The Anthropology of Contemporary Issues)

by June Starr and Jane F. Collier

Building on earlier work in the anthropology of law and taking a critical stance toward it, June Starr and Jane F. Collier ask, "Should social anthropologists continue to isolate the ‘legal’ as a separate field of study?" To answer this question, they confront critics of legal anthropology who suggest that the subfield is dying and advocate a reintegration of legal anthropology into a renewed general anthropology. Chapters by anthropologists, sociologists, and law professors, using anthropological rather than legal methodologies, provide original analyses of particular legal developments. Some contributors adopt an interpretative approach, focusing on law as a system of meaning; others adopt a materialistic approach, analyzing the economic and political forces that historically shaped ...

Equality under the Constitution: Reclaiming the Fourteenth Amendment

by Judith A. Baer

The principle of equality embedded in the Declaration of Independence and reaffirmed in the Constitution does not distinguish between individuals according to their capacities or merits. It is written into these documents to ensure that each and every person enjoys equal respect and equal rights. Judith Baer maintains, however, that in fact American judicial decisions have consistently denied individuals the form of equality to which they are legally entitled—that the courts have interpreted constitutional guarantees of equal protection in ways that undermine the original intent of Congress. In Equality under the Constitution, Baer examines the background, scope, and purpose of the Constitution’s Fourteenth Amendment and the history of its interpretation by the courts. She traces the d...

Prison Segmentation for Inner City Teacher Advisors: Phone, Video or Computer

by Reverend Mike Wanner

Inner city teachers can have their hands full, and part of that may be because of a reality void between television and the real world. There may be a tendency for safe and secure television viewers to expect that the real world is exciting and has no consequences.Prisoners may have a different view and may wish to do something positive with the time they have on their sentences. Segmentation may allow prisoners to write about their adventures so they can share their experience and their recommendations.It would be ideal if there was a program developed in segmentation that could allow that to happen through e-mail, phone, or video chats. Teachers could be invited to write for advice and then build a whole consultancy between prisoners and teachers.---The books that I have previously publi...
