1. War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America's Colony
Author: by Nelson A Denis
Bold Type Books
The powerful, untold story of the 1950 revolution in Puerto Rico and the long history of U.S. Intervention on the island, that the New York Times says “could not be more timely.” In 1950, after over fifty years of military occupation and colonial rule, the Nationalist Party of Puerto Rico staged an unsuccessful armed insurrection against the United States.
Violence swept through the island: assassins were sent to kill President Harry Truman, gunfights roared in eight towns, police stations and post offices were burned down. In order to suppress this uprising, the US Army deployed thousands of troops and bombarded two towns, marking the first time in history that the US government bombed its own citizens.Nelson A.
Denis tells this powerful story through the controversial life of Pedro Albizu Campos, who served as the president of the Nationalist Party. A lawyer, chemical engineer, and the first Puerto Rican to graduate from Harvard Law School, Albizu Campos was imprisoned for twenty-five years and died under mysterious circumstances.
2. Hitler's American Model: The United States and the Making of Nazi Race Law
Author: by James Q. Whitman
Princeton University Press
How American race law provided a blueprint for Nazi GermanyNazism triumphed in Germany during the high era of Jim Crow laws in the United States. Did the American regime of racial oppression in any way inspire the Nazis? The unsettling answer is yes.
In Hitler’s American Model, James Whitman presents a detailed investigation of the American impact on the notorious Nuremberg Laws, the centerpiece anti-Jewish legislation of the Nazi regime. Both American citizenship and antimiscegenation laws proved directly relevant to the two principal Nuremberg Lawsthe Citizenship Law and the Blood Law.
Contrary to those who have insisted otherwise, Whitman demonstrates that the Nazis took a real, sustained, significant, and revealing interest in American race policies. He looks at the ultimate, ugly irony that when Nazis rejected American practices, it was sometimes not because they found them too enlightened but too harsh.
Indelibly linking American race laws to the shaping of Nazi policies in Germany, Hitler’s American Model upends the understanding of America’s influence on racist practices in the wider world.
3. If I Survive: Nazi Germany and the Jews: 100-Year Old Lena Goldstein's Miracle Story (Faces of Eve)
Author: by Barbara Miller
If I Survive.This thought haunted Lena. Her loved ones were cruelly forced from her arms in the Warsaw Ghetto in Poland and perished in Treblinka Death Camp. This is a true story of Holocaust survival. In ww2 books, it is a searing story of human rights abuses and genocide.
The story of Nazi Germany and the Jews is a story of anti-Semitism, Nazi concentration camps, gas chambers and World War 11 (wwii). The Warsaw ghetto where the Nazis had imprisoned the Jews was being emptied as Hitler’s Final Solution to murder all of European Jewry was put into action.
Lena kept thinking, It’s my turn next. As some Jews escaped Treblinka and exposed it as being a death camp not a labour camp, young men and women in the ghetto decided to make a stand. Lena helped in the resistance which became the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising by gathering light bulbs from empty houses which could be used for Molotov cocktails.
By a miracle, she escaped the ghetto before it became an inferno. But where could she hide? When it was over and she could walk free, the tears she had held back flooded out because she was all alone and there was no one to care that she had survived and no one to go to.

Author: by Lori Damrosch
West Academic Publishing
Hardbound – New, hardbound print book.
6. Justice for Some: Law and the Question of Palestine
Author: by Noura Erakat
Stanford University Press
Justice in the Question of Palestine is often framed as a question of law. Yet none of the Israel-Palestinian conflict’s most vexing challenges have been resolved by judicial intervention. Occupation law has failed to stem Israel’s settlement enterprise. Laws of war have permitted killing and destruction during Israel’s military offensives in the Gaza Strip.
The Oslo Accord’s two-state solution is now dead letter. Justice for Some offers a new approach to understanding the Palestinian struggle for freedom, told through the power and control of international law. Focusing on key juncturesfrom the Balfour Declaration in 1917 to present-day wars in GazaNoura Erakat shows how the strategic deployment of law has shaped current conditions.
Over the past century, the law has done more to advance Israel’s interests than the Palestinians’. But, Erakat argues, this outcome was never inevitable. Law is politics, and its meaning and application depend on the political intervention of states and people alike.

8. Last Mission to Tokyo: The Extraordinary Story of the Doolittle Raiders and Their Final Fight for Justice
Author: by Michel Paradis
Simon & Schuster
Superb…[Paradis] writes history with ease and authority. The Wall Street Journal [An] engrossing procedural…Richly researched. The New York Times Book Review A thrilling narrative that introduces a key but underreported moment in World War II: The Doolitte Raids and the international war crimes trial in 1945 that defined Japanese-American relations and changed legal history.
In 1942, freshly humiliated from the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States was in search of a plan. President Roosevelt, determined to show the world that our nation would not be intimidated or defeated by enemy powers, he demanded recommendations for a show of strength.
Jimmy Doolittle, a stunt pilot with a doctorate from MIT, came forward, and led eighty young men, gathered together from the far-flung corners of Depression-era America, on a seemingly impossible mission across the Pacific. Sixteen planes in all, they only had enough fuel for a one-way trip.
Together, the Raiders, as they were called, did what no one had successfully done for more than a thousand years. They struck the mainland of Japan and permanently turned the tide of the war in the Pacific. Almost immediately, The Doolittle Raid captured the public imagination, and has remained a seminal moment in World War II history, but the heroism and bravery of the mission is only half the story.
9. The Rule of Law
Author: by Tom Bingham
“The Rule of Law” is a phrase much used but little examined. The idea of the rule of law as the foundation of modern states and civilizations has recently become even more talismanic than that of democracy, but what does it actually consist of?
In this brilliant short book, Britain’s former senior law lord, and one of the world’s most acute legal minds, examines what the idea actually means. He makes clear that the rule of law is not an arid legal doctrine but is the foundation of a fair and just society, is a guarantee of responsible government, is an important contribution to economic growth and offers the best means yet devised for securing peace and co-operation.
He briefly examines the historical origins of the rule, and then advances eight conditions which capture its essence as understood in western democracies today. He also discusses the strains imposed on the rule of law by the threat and experience of international terrorism.
The book will be influential in many different fields and should become a key text for anyone interested in politics, society, and the state of our world.
10. Suffer the Little Children: Genocide, Indigenous Nations and the Canadian State
Author: by Tamara Starblanket
Clarity Press, Inc.
Originally approved as a master of laws thesis bya respected Canadian university, this booktackles one of the most compelling issues of ourtimethe crime of genocideand whether in factit can be said to have occurred in relation to themany Original Nations on Great Turtle Island nowclaimed by a state called Canada.
It has beenhailed as groundbreaking by many Indigenousand other scholars engaged with this issue,impacting not just Canada but states worldwidewhere entrapped Indigenous nations faceabsorption by a dominating colonial state. Starblanket unpacks Canada’s role in the removalof cultural genocide from the GenocideConvention, though the disappearance of anOriginal Nation by forced assimilation wasregarded by many states as equally genocidal asdestruction by slaughter.
Did Canada seek totailor the definition of genocide to escape its owncrimes which were then even ongoing? Thecrime of genocide, to be held as such undercurrent international law, must address thecomplicated issue of mens rea (not just thecommission of a crime, but the specific intent todo so).
