The Price of Terror: How the Families of the Victims of PAN AM 103 Brought Libya to Justice, Allan Gerson and Jery Adler
1 Allan Gerson and Jery Adler The Price of Terror: How the Families of the Victims of PAN AM 103 Brought Libya to Justice
HarperCollins 238174 USA 2001 0060197617 / 9780060197612 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition President Bill Clinton called it "an attack against America," but after Libyan agents planted a bomb aboard Pan Am Flight 103, killing 259 people in the air and 11 on the ground, America did not strike back. Instead, the grieving relatives of the victims did the unthinkable -- as mere civilians-and tried to force Libya to pay for its crime. Lawyers told the families that they could never sue Libya in American courts, and they were right. This would require changing a bedrock principle of international law -- a change that every government in the world feared and fought, including the United States itself. Working virtually alone at first, Allan Gerson, a former diplomat and prosecutor of Nazi war criminals, took on the case and spent the next eight years on the families' quest for justice. In this high-stakes game of international power politics and legal maneuvering, there were friendships, jobs, and reputations lost, but a precious principle -- that of accountability under the law -- was strengthened and preserved. Now Gerson and his co-author, NEWSWEEK writer Jerry Adler, follow the threads of this extraordinary tale back to that deadly night over Lockerbie, Scotland -- and forward into a new era of international justice, when terrorists will learn to fear the righteous retribution of their own victims. 322 pages. Pen mark to bottom of page edges indicating remainder mark. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Web of Deceipt: Britain's Real Role in the World, Mark Curtis
14 Mark Curtis Web of Deceipt: Britain's Real Role in the World
Vintage 233028 Great Britain 2003 0099448394 / 9780099448396 Softcover Good Condition With a foreword by John Pilger. In his explosive new book, Mark Curtis reveals a new picture of Britain's role in the world since 1945 and in the 'war against terrorism' by offering a comprehensive critique of the Blair government's foreign policy. Curtis argues that Britain is an 'outlaw state', often a violator of international law and ally of many repressive regimes. He reasons not only that Britain's foreign policies are generally unethical but that they are also making the world more dangerous and unequal. The Web of Deceit describes the staggering gulf that has arisen between New Labour's professed commitment to upholding ethical values and the reality of current policies. It outlines the new phase in global intervention, the immorality of British policy in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Iraq and Indonesia and support for repressive governments in Israel, Russia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Curtis also reveals Britain's acquiescence in the Rwanda genocide and economic policies in the World Trade Organisation that are increasing poverty and inequality around the world. Drawing on formerly secret government files, the book also shows British complicity in the slaughter of a million people in Indonesia in 1965; the depopulation of the island of Diego Garcia; the overthrow of governments in Iran and British Guiana; repressive colonial policies in Kenya, Malaya and Oman; and much more. 512 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Politics; Politics & Government; World Affairs::Current Events. ISBN: 0099448394.

September 11, Noam Chomsky
16 Noam Chomsky September 11
Allen & Unwin 235018 Australia 2001 1865088188 / 9781865088181 Softcover Very Good Condition Is the 'war on terrorism' winnable? If yes, how?Intelligent bombs in Iraq, humanitarian intervention in Kosovo. The USA never used the word 'war' to describe that. Now they are talking about war against a nameless enemy. Why?Are Arabs, by definition, necessarily funadmentalist, the West's new enemy?In this timely book Noam Chomsky uses his impeccable knowledge of United States foreign policy in the Middle East and South Asia to shed light on the rapidly shifting balance of world power. His wide ranging comments on the new 'war on terrorism', Osama Bin-Laden, US involvement with Afghanistan and the long term implications of America's military attacks abroad are informed, perceptive and provocative.Speaking out against responding to violence with violence, Chomsky hopes that an aroused public within the more free and democratic societies can direct policies towards a much more humane and honourable course.Noam Chomsky is a world renowned political activist, writer and professor of linguistics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he has taught since 1955. Chomsky has written and lectured widely on linguistics, philosophy, and politics and his efforts for greater democracy are celebrated by peace and social justice he mainstream press, and why is it important that they be paid more attention. 125 pages.
