Guardians Of The Parks

RRP $332.99

Guardians of the Parks is the unique story of the National Parks and Conservation Association (NPCA).
Created on the heels of the National Park Service, NPCA began as a citizens' organization to keep watch over the nation's national parks. It was charged with the duty of ensuring that the National Park Service remain true to its original purpose: to preserve these wild spaces as "virtually the only places where humans could seek and find answers to questions about nature and their relation to it." This book chronicles NPCA's efforts from its founding to the present day. John Miles has given us an "inside narrative," a history of strong personalities - such as Robert Sterling Yard, Sigurd Olsen, Anthony Wayne Smith, and Paul Pritchard - all struggling to define their own organization and its goals, and also to develop a protected park system for all citizens to enjoy.
This book tells not only their story, their motives, and lasting influence, but also the story of the national park themselves.

International Law In A Multipolar World

RRP $341.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Since the creation of the United Nations in 1945, international law has sought to configure itself as a universal system. And yet, despite the best efforts of international institutions, scholars and others to assert the universal application of international law, its relevance and applicability has been influenced, if not directed, by political power.

Over the past decade, discourse has tended to focus on the implications for international law of a unipolar world, characterised by US hegemony. However, that the international system may now be experiencing a tendency towards multipolarity, with various sites of power able to exert a telling influence on international relations and international law. Recent events such as Russiaa (TM)s excursion into Georgia, the breakdown of the Doha round of trade negotiations, the USAa (TM)s questionable actions in the war on terror, the prominence of emerging nuclear powers, Chinaa (TM)s assertions of its own interests on a global scale, and the rise of regional trading blocs, all pose significant questions for international law and the international legal order.

International Law in a Multipolar World features contributions from a range of contributors including Nigel White, Michael Schmitt, Richard Burchill, Alexander Orakhelashvili and Christian Pippan, addressing some of the questions that multipolarity poses for the international legal system. The contributions to the volume explore issues including the use of force, governance, sovereign equality, regionalism and the relevance of the United Nations in a multipolar world, considering the overarching theme of the relationship between power and law.
