"The United States embargo against Cuba was imposed as a response to Cuba's new revolutionary government's seizure of US properties which was viewed as an international law violation. However, while sanctions are usually seen as legitimate means of enforcing established norms, the Cuban embargo itself appears to be the wrongful act, and its persistence puts into question the importance and function of international law. This book examines the history, legality and effects of the US sanctions over the last fifty years. Nigel D. White argues that the Cuban embargo has become a matter of politics and ideology; subject to apparently illegitimate coercion that has resulted in a fifty-year global toleration of what appears to be a serious violation of international law. The book demonstrates how the Cuban embargo undermines the use of sanctions world-wide, and asks whether the refusal of world governments to address the illegality of the embargo reduces international law to tokenism where concepts of sovereign equality and non-intervention are no longer a priority. As a fierce evaluation of international law through the story of a country under siege, this book will be of great interest and use to researchers and students of public international law, international relations, and US and Latin American politics"--

Few people would be surprised to hear that the CIA had assassinated a dictator, inspired a military coup in the Middle East or Latin America. However, causing a ship to sink in the principal river of America?s closest ally would probably be seen to be contrary to not only international law and the American Constitution, but also a step too far, even for the CIA. That is what happened in October 1964 when the American Agency was involved in the sinking on the River Thames of the mv Magdeburg, an East German freighter carrying 42 Leyland buses to Castro?s Cuba, in the face of sustained protests from Washington against driving holes through its Trade and Credit embargo of Cuba. Details of the incident remain classified in America, hardly surprising in view of the fact that the sinking occurred In the main shipping lane of a country supposedly enjoying a special relationship with the United States. If publicly revealed, it would not only have caused a major and embarrassing diplomatic upset, but would have also subjected the CIA's clandestine sabotage operations to worldwide scrutiny.This book invetigates a series of historical events leading to "El Bloqueo", the US Trade Embargo of Cuba, and to the varied attempts by the CIA and its agencies to stop other countries from exporting buses and other heavy equipment to to that island.

This new edition considers the unifying legal attributes that span vastly differing inter-governmental organisations, from the UN to the EU. A law of international organisations has become established in certain areas, such as legal personality, powers, membership, finance, and decision-making. In other, newer, areas - accountability, responsibility and democracy - politics is still much rawer, and has not yet been fully converted into legal concepts and principles. As with the first edition, there are plenty of examples of organisations given in the text. Individual organisations dealing with issues such as security, health, civil aviation, finance and trade are scrutinised by way of example, to illustrate how different they can be, but also to show how it is possible to debate a set of legal principles that transcend each institution. This new edition of an established text will appeal to students and academics as well as individuals seeking a legal and political insight into international organisations.

In undertaking this study the book necessarily assess the current position of the State in the international legal order and examine the contemporary changes that have affected the State itself.

To underworld kingpins Meyer Lansky and Charles "Lucky" Luciano, Cuba was the greatest hope for the future of American organized crime in the post-Prohibition years. In the 1950s, the Mob—with the corrupt, repressive government of brutal Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista in its pocket—owned Havana's biggest luxury hotels and casinos, launching an unprecedented tourism boom complete with the most lavish entertainment, top-drawer celebrities, gorgeous women, and gambling galore. But Mob dreams collided with those of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and others who would lead an uprising of the country's disenfranchised against Batista's hated government and its foreign partners—an epic cultural battle that bestselling author T. J. English captures here in all its sexy, decadent, ugly glory.
