Britains Hidden Role

Routledge Law is pleased to announce the publication of a number of new research and scholarly books in July. Britain’s Hidden Role in the Rwandan Genocide by Hazel Cameron examines the role of the United Kingdom as a global elite bystander to the crime of genocide, and its complicity, in violation of international criminal laws during the Rwandan genocide of 1994. The latest book in the Discourses of Law series is Danielle Tyson's study of the construction and representation of subjectivity and sexual difference in legal narrations of intimate partner homicide, Sex, Culpability and the Defence of Provocation. The Enlightened Shareholder Value Principle and Corporate Governance by Andrew Keay considers what impact ESV will have on financial institutions and non-financial institutions in the aftermath of the global financial crisis.
