New decisions are included by national and international tribunals including from the International Court of Justice its validity of Kosovo independence case; its 2009 Georgia v. Russia Racial Discrimination treaty case; its 2007 Bosnia v. Serbia genocide case; and from the International Criminal Court its 2009 first-ever arrest warrant for a sitting national president. Many new or revised role playing problems for probing student comprehension via applications of course material. New sections on: extraordinary rendition, national court adjudication of international issues; organizational and corporate accountability; the so-called "redefinition" of torture; how a new US presidential administration seeks to do an "about face" regarding the War on Terror policies of the prior administration; a revised human rights chapter, now offering a potpourri of subsections on rights-specific groups; a revised environmental chapter that now offers readings on alternative environmental fora, war and the environment, criminal law options, environmental human rights, corporate environmental responsibility; and the economic chapter`s coverage of the International Monetary Fund, World Bank, and globalization backlash.|
