Sohm, Joseph
Slight mark on front board. This book addresses a single question: how do you photograph democracy? After all, democracy is an 'idea' and not something one can easily wrap one's lens around. But photographing democracy is indeed what Joseph Sohm has done in this epic journey across the 50 states. To capture this country's incredible diversity, Sohm framed his national work as George Seurat might a pointillist painting. With each photograph, an individual dot was applied to his American canvas. Spanning three decades, tens of thousands of images were assembled in what becomes a compelling mosaic. Sohm takes us on an insightful journey down the back roads and byways of the U.S., which ultimately leads to a deeper understanding of who we are as a nation. This is a sweeping portrait of life in the American democracy, a portrait that shows us the United States. With a foreword by legendary travel writer, Paul Theroux and lyrics by two of America's most distinguished songwriters, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, "Visions of America" is a work of historic significance. 301pp.

This yearbook, now in its 11th volume, is a primary source of information on significant and topical legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories. It provides, in a single annual volume, not only leading articles on topics of major interest to the international legal community, but also key legislation, court decisions, legal cases, treaties, resolutions, special reports, and other relevant legal material translated from the original Arabic or Hebrew into English. This particular volume is devoted specifically to the question of Palestinian refugees and includes: a comparison of the international legal framework designed to protect refugees with the framework already established for the protection of Palestinian refugees; an examination of the various pieces of legislation enacted to "legally" confiscate Palestinian lands; raising the question as to how the plight of Palestinian refugees may be addressed in the international legal system; legal precedents regarding refugees, including the Dayton accord and UN Resolutions; various agreements signed over the course of the past year; a detailed bibliography of books, monographs and articles; and a comprehensive index. This volume, as with its predecessors, should prove an invaluable source of reference and record on the complex legal issues relating to the Palestinian territories, and will be of prime interest to legal practitioners, researchers, scholars and anyone involved in law, politics, human rights or international relations who has an interest in this region.429pp.
