Editors Elkin-Koren,Niva and Netanel,Neil Weinstock
Information and the marketplace are uneasy bedfellows. The dissemination of information via media can have many different and overlapping purposes, including entertainment, art, ideology, and research. It is particularly among groups that need to share information - the academic and scientific communities, for example - that viewing it as something that can be bought and sold is intrusive and even damaging. There are many other reasons why the commodification of information, which continues to move from strength to strength with the expansion of international free trade, must be carefully scrutinized. To this end, a conference of specialists with expertise encompassing the area of law and practice where intellectual property, communications, privacy, free speech, collaborative research, and international trade all intersect met under the auspices of the University of Haifa Faculty of Law in May 1999. This book presents the analyses and recommendations that emerged from that conference. As one might expect, a broad spectrum of views is expressed, from commercialism as the liberator of free speech to commodification as de facto censorship. 514pp.

Bayefsky, Anne F.
The human rights treaties are at the core of the international system for the promotion and protection of human rights. Their power to translate rights into remedies, however, requires greater access to the system by victims of human rights violations. This volume is about access and empowerment. It will facilitate the ability of victims to complain about violations of their rights to an international body, and to have their complaints measured against clear standards. Although this system of enforcement remains open only to those whose rights have been violated by states that have permitted complaints, the complaints procedures of the UN treaty system apply to one-quarter of the world's population. With this volume Professor Bayefsky makes the international complaints procedure arising from the UN human rights treaty system available to individuals, lawyers, non-governmental organizations, and human rights advocates in many parts of the world. She begins by identifying the common features of the four complaints procedures under each of the four treaties. Each treaty is then examined in greater detail. Consideration is finally given to questions of overlap and the choice of a forum. The annexes provide the practical tools for filing a complaint. 384pp.

Campbell, Nedra
An essential guide to making "the system" work in the reader's favour, this book will arm African American employees, family members, consumers, tenants, business owners, civil plaintiffs, voters, criminal suspects, prisoners, and victims with legal information that will empower them to demand that those in power respect and honour their rights, no matter how difficult their situation. The American legal system was created by white men for white men, and therefore it often fails to reflect and protect the values and interests of black men and women. But over a century after slavery and decades after Jim Crow, African Americans can now use this imperfect system to their advantage. The notion of having rights is flawed; citizens truly have only those rights they choose to exercise or claim, and this book will show them how to do so.

Lee, Yong-Shik
Among restrictions on imports, safeguard measures are particularly controversial in that they are invoked in the absence of any unfair trade practice. Safeguards interfere substantially with the normal stream of trade, and their improper application undermines the objectives of the WTO. Recent WTO cases have brought the attention of trade lawyers to the absence of comprehensive materials on this complex subject, and highlighted the need for a reliable guide to the WTO rules on safeguards. Dr. Y.S. Lee, perhaps the world's foremost authority on safeguard measures, has provided such a guide, here updated in its second edition. Readers may expect from this book comprehensive coverage on safeguards to date with legal analysis of the important issues in the interpretation and application of the current rules on safeguards. The author also proposes modifications to enhance and clarify the discipline of safeguards. The crucial issues raised include the following: economic and political justifications of safeguards; applicability of GATT Article XIX; interpretation and application of the Agreement on Safeguards, including nondiscriminatory application of safeguards and justification of safeguards-in-response; transitional product-specific safeguard measures against China; and, emergency safeguards to trade in services. The focus of the book is on the WTO Agreement on Safeguards, as interpreted by WTO Panel and Appellate Body reports in key cases, including Korea' Dairy Products, Argentina's Footwear, United States' Wheat Glutten, United States' Lamb Meat, Chile's Price Band System, United States' Line Pipe and United States' Steel Products. Dr. Lee summarizes the various key findings and provides lucid and well-balanced analysis of these reports. "Safeguard Measures in World Trade" comes at a time when safeguard measures continue to mount in various parts of the world and a possible domino effect can destabilize the international trading system. It will be of inestimable value to government officials, trade lawyers, international business people, and academics in trade law and related fields. 265pp.
