Plunder PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Plunder free pdf Plunder examines the dark side of the Rule of Law and explores how it has been used as a powerful political weapon by Western countries in order to legitimize plunder - the practice of violent extraction by stronger political actors victimizing weaker ones. * Challenges traditionally held beliefs in the sanctity of the Rule of Law by exposing its dark side * Examines the Rule of Law's relationship with 'plunder' - the practice of violent extraction by stronger political actors victimizing weaker ones - in the service of Western cultural and economic domination * Provides global examples of plunder: of oil in Iraq- of ideas in the form of Western patents and intellectual property rights imposed on weaker peoples- and of liberty in the United States * Dares to ask the paradoxical question - is the Rule of Law itself illegal?
