ISIS’s Use of Sexual Violence in Iraq (St. James's Studies in World Affairs) (paperback)

Author: 

Ghandour, Christel, University of Leiden

ISIS’s Use of Sexual Violence in Iraq explores how and why the Islamic State organized and used sexual violence against Yezidi women in Iraq. Sexual violence in conflict is one the most devastating types of attack waged against non-combatants. It separates families, displaces communities, and perpetuates on-going social and psychological conflicts long after surviving victims are freed. It is a highly effective weapon that degrades and humiliates people when they are most vulnerable.

China Moves South: Human Rights Implications in the Paracel and Spratly Islands (St. James’s Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Mai, Tam, PhD

Credentials: 

Florida Atlantic University

Vietnam has claimed the Paracel and Spratly Island groups for hundreds of years. China’s invasion and capture of the Paracels from South Vietnam in 1974, and its ongoing occupation of the Spratlys, have created increasing opposition and anger not only among Vienamese citizens but worldwide. This book insists that China’s illegal violation of Vietnamese sovereignty rights in the Paracels and Spratlys has included serious human rights violations and decelerated the process of human emancipation.
