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.

This comprehensive guide covers all aspects of extradition to and from the United States, while making critical, theoretical, and practical evaluations of these aspects, and proposing alternatives. The rights of individuals, balancing of states interests, and preservation of world order within the Rule of Law form the conceptual framework of this book. The focus within U.S. practice explores the essentials involved in the executive branches treaty-making power, as implemented through its foreign relations practice, and as scrutinized by the judiciary. The Sixth Edition updates the treaties, laws, and cases cited with new content, including comparative material dealing with the European Union, cases involving the United States decided by other countries, and major decisions of the high courts of the UK, Canada, France, South Africa, Australia, Israel, Italy, and Germany. As with the prior editions, the Sixth Edition continues to expose certain questionable practices of the United States with regards to extradition.

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.

Der ehemalige SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann gilt als einer der Hauptverantwortlichen für die »Endlösung« der Juden in Europa. Der Prozess gegen ihn fand 1961 in Jerusalem statt. Hannah Arendts Prozessbericht wurde von ihr 1964 als Buch publiziert und brachte eine Lawine ins Rollen: Es stieß bei seinem Erscheinen auf heftige Ablehnung in Israel, Deutschland und in den USA– und wurde zu einem Klassiker wie kaum ein anderes vergleichbares Werk zur Zeitgeschichte und ihrer Deutung.
