A novel and robust framework for the operational and legal analysis of recovering fugitives abroad, Bringing International Fugitives to Justice addresses how states, working alone, in cooperation, or with third-party intervention, strive to secure the custody of fugitives in order to bring them to justice - for prosecution or punishment purposes - while evaluating the lawfulness of those pursuit efforts. The book introduces redefined terms and new concepts to add precision to the discourse; sets forth comprehensive typologies, including of extradition arrangements and impediments; and provides a mapping to account for the full range of means and methods - extradition, collateral and remedial approaches to extradition, and full-scale and fallback alternatives to extradition -by which international fugitives can be retrieved. The study considers the judicial, diplomatic, and policy consequences of reliance on the more aggressive or controversial alternatives, proffering recommendations that, if adopted, could facilitate the recovery of fugitives while minimizing associated risks.

International Criminal Law has undergone significant recent changes. Transnational Fugitive Offenders reflects the dynamic nature of the subject & keeps readers on the cutting edge of new developments. An ever-increasing number & variety of international agreements & cases has expanded extradition law. The jurisprudence relating to alternative means of rendition has also evolved in different ways in different jurisdictions. Most notably, however, the remit of the subject as a whole has expanded. The concept of international criminal law now has to embrace crimes that occur in no single place, cross-border financial crimes where vast sums of money exist solely in cyberspace & which have connections with financial institutions in several countries. The international community has also established supra-national criminal courts to deal with the aftermath of the wars in the former Yugoslavia & Rwanda. The future will likely bring further changes as well. The permanent International Criminal Court, originally proposed by the International Law Commission, if established by the international community, would, as matters stand in 1998, have jurisdiction over genocide, crimes against humanity & war crimes. The ultimate result may at last be the availability of overarching guidance as to the remit & scope of international criminal law. Those studying extradition law, and/or working with transnational fugitive offenders in any capacity, will find Transnational Fugitive Offenders an important, thought-provoking work on a very dynamic subject.

"Extradition" is the formal surrender of a person by a state to another state for prosecution or punishment. Extradition to or from the United States is a creature of treaty. The United States has extradition treaties with over a hundred of the nations of the world, although they are many with whom it has no extradition treaty. International terrorism and drug trafficking have made extradition an increasingly important law enforcement tool. This book is a review of the adjustments made in recent treaties to accommodate American law enforcement interests, and then a nutshell overview of the federal law governing foreign requests to extradite a fugitive found in this country and a United States request for extradition of a fugitive found in a foreign country.

The controversial journalistic analysis of the mentality that fostered the Holocaust, from the author of The Origins of Totalitarianism Sparking a flurry of heated debate, Hannah Arendt’s authoritative and stunning report on the trial of German Nazi leader Adolf Eichmann first appeared as a series of articles in The New Yorker in 1963. This revised edition includes material that came to light after the trial, as well as Arendt’s postscript directly addressing the controversy that arose over her account. A major journalistic triumph by an intellectual of singular influence, Eichmann in Jerusalem is as shocking as it is informative—an unflinching look at one of the most unsettling (and unsettled) issues of the twentieth century.

Prosecution of serious crimes of international concern has been few and far between before and even after the establishment of the International Criminal Court in 2002. Hope thus rests with the implementation of the international legal obligation for States to either extradite or prosecute such perpetrators among themselves or surrender them to a competent international criminal court. This obligation was considered by the United Nations International Law Commission (ILC) which submitted its final report in 2014. Kittichaisaree, Chairman of the ILC Working Group on that topic, not only provides a guide to the final report, offering an analysis of the subject and a unique summary of its drafting history, he also covers important issues left unanswered by the report, including the customary international legal status of the obligation, the role of the universal jurisdiction, immunities of State officials, and impediments to the surrender of offenders to international criminal courts. Authoritative, encyclopaedic, and essential to those in the field, The Obligation to Extradite or Prosecute also offers practical solutions as to the road ahead.
