<div>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.<br /><BR>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. By tracing his life and death, Denis shows how the journey of Albizu Campos is part of a larger story of Puerto Rico and US colonialism.<br /><BR>Through oral histories, personal interviews, eyewitness accounts, congressional testimony, and recently declassified FBI files, <I>War Against All Puerto Ricans</I> tells the story of a forgotten revolution and its context in Puerto Rico’s history, from the US invasion in 1898 to the modern-day struggle for self-determination. Denis provides an unflinching account of the gunfights, prison riots, political intrigue, FBI and CIA covert activity, and mass hysteria that accompanied this tumultuous period in Puerto Rican history.</div>

Now in its third edition, International Project Finance is the definitive guide to legal and practical issues relating to international projects.<br /><br />The book considers the application of English and New York law in cross-border documentation and legal and practical matters associated with running financing projects in civil law jurisdictions. Different sources of funding are also examined, such as banking and international bond documentation, and Islamic financing practice, in particular the use of Murabaha financing techniques and Sukuk (Islamic bond) market. This includes the legal and documentation issues arising from the use of such<br />financing techniques and how they interact with each other from a legal and contractual perspective. Equally significant, the book provides analysis of project defaults and work-outs giving guidance on how to manage projects when these circumstances arise. The book also contains extensive coverage of<br />dispute resolution in international projects.<br /><br />New to this edition is a chapter on development finance institutions covering the work of bodies such as the World Bank and the African Development Bank. This chapter explains the key roles played by these institutions in international project finance, especially in emerging markets. It covers the key policy issues and the impact of such policies on project finance documentation.<br /><br />As well as addressing the basic principles which affect the structuring and documentation of project financings, the book also explains structural, legal and contractual differences between the various sectors such as transportation, infrastructure/Public Private Partnerships, conventional, renewable and nuclear power, mining, and oil and gas. Telcommunications, including broadband, are covered in more detail in a separate section for this edition.<br /><br />This book provides the context of international project finance which underpins the understanding of legal analysis in this area. It includes detailed guidance on practical issues such as the identification and assessment of project risk, together with relevant documentation such as risk matrices and checklists covering both key project contracts and the major terms of a project financing. With its focus on international projects and emphasis on the practical application of the law, this book<br />is an essential reference work for all practitioners in the field.

<p>Although negotiation still lies at the heart of international commercial agreements, much of the detail has migrated to the Internet and has become part of electronic commerce. This incomparable one-volume work??now in its sixth edition??with its deeply informed emphasis on both the face-to-face and electronic components of setting up and performing an international commercial agreement, stands alone among contract drafting guides and has proven its enduring worth.</p><br /><p>Following its established highly practical format, the book’s much-appreciated precise information on a wide variety of issues??including those pertaining to intellectual property, alternative dispute resolution, and regional differences??is of course still here in this new edition. There is new and updated material on such matters as the following:</p><br /><ul><br /><li>• the need for contract drafters to understand and to use the concepts of “standardization” (i.e., the work of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as a contract drafting tool);</li><br /><li>• new developments and technical progress in e-commerce;</li><br /><li>• new developments in artificial intelligence in contract drafting;</li><br /><li>• the possible use of electronic currencies such as Bitcoin as a payment device;</li><br /><li>• foreign direct investment;</li><br /><li>• special considerations inherent in drafting licensing agreements;</li><br /><li>• online dispute resolution including the innovations referred to as the “robot” arbitrator;</li><br /><li>• changes in the arbitration rules of major international organizations; and</li><br /><li>• assessment of possible future trends in international commercial arrangements.</li><br /></ul><br /><p>Each chapter provides numerous references to additional sources, including a large number of websites. Materials from and citations to appropriate literature in languages other than English are also included.</p><br /><p>In its recognition that a business executive entering into an international commercial transaction is mainly interested in drafting an agreement that satisfies all of the parties and that will be performed as promised, this superb guide will immeasurably assist any lawyer or business executive to plan and carry out individual transactions even when that person is not interested in a full-blown understanding of the entire landscape of international contracts. Business executives who are not lawyers will find that this book gives them the understanding and perspective necessary to work effectively with the legal experts.</p>

<b>From one of America’s leading legal minds, a riveting look at the U.S.-Cuban relationship seen through the lens of a nearly impossible case</b><br /><br /><br /><br /><p>During his distinguished career, Martin Garbus has established himself as a well-known trial lawyer representing the likes of Daniel Ellsberg and Leonard Peltier. But there is no story Garbus wants to tell more than that of his most challenging case: representing five Cuban spies marooned in the U.S. prison system and his efforts to get them out.</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><p><em>North of Havana</em> tells the story of a spy ring sent by Cuba in the early 1990s to infiltrate anti-Communist extremists in Miami. Erroneously charged by the U.S. government in connection with the 1996 shootdown of two planes circulating anti-Castro leaflets over Havana, the spies—in the absence of evidence—were convicted in 2000 of conspiracy to commit espionage and murder. Caught up in the sweep of history, the Cuban Five, as they became known, played a central role over the next decade in the recent thaw in Cuban-American relations.</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><p>Set in Miami and Havana, <em>North of Havana</em> is a mesmerizing tale of international intrigue, espionage, and political gamesmanship that continues to play a shaping role in American foreign policy and presidential elections. In the process, the books shows how the justice system can be, and is, subverted for political purposes and gives readers insight into one of the most fascinating legal cases of our times.</p>

This book discusses current theory regarding global mobile satellite communications (GMSC) for maritime, land (road and rail), and aeronautical applications. It covers how these can enable connections between moving objects such as ships, road and rail vehicles and aircrafts on one hand, and on the other ground telecommunications subscribers through the medium of communications satellites, ground earth stations, Terrestrial Telecommunication Networks (TTN), Internet Service Providers (ISP) and other wireless and landline telecommunications providers. This new edition covers new developments and initiatives that have resulted in land and aeronautical applications and the introduction of new satellite constellations in non-geostationary orbits and projects of new hybrid satellite constellations. The book presents current GMSC trends, mobile system concepts and network architecture using a simple mode of style with understandable technical information, characteristics, graphics, illustrations and mathematics equations. The first edition of Global Mobile Satellite Communications (Springer, 2005) was split into two books for the second edition—one on applications and one on theory. This book presents global mobile satellite communications theory.
