Jacqueline Bhabha. Child migration and human rights in a global age. Princeton University Press, 2014.

K639.B43 2014

 

This timely book provides a thorough account of current child migration issues, including child trafficking, international adoption, and child refugees.

KF9227.C2S268 2014

 

With recent stories of botched executions in the news, there has been a renewed focus on the death penalty and the methods by which it is administered. In this book, Sarat traces the history of execution methods in the United States from 1890 to 2010, and finds that approximately three percent of all executions performed during that period were botched.
