World War I Law and Lawyers: Issues, Cases, and Characters


    The global story of the legal side of WWI and its legacy is now told in this new book. Eighty legal issues are identified from this war, ranging from the ancient rights of kings to deploying modern technology like airplanes and poison gases, from mutiny to blockade, from supplying and funding wars to suppressing dissent, from starving or deporting civilians to executing or ignoring soldiers, and from the impacts on living beings to the impacts on nations. In addition to presenting the story behind these legal issues from across the globe, the book provides practical assistance by linking many of these issues to modern application. This book has something for each type of reader: the lawyer, fans of history and the general reader.
