New Reference Books

Thank you Librarian Beth Hansen Shaw for bringing the following Reference Books to our attention.

World Encyclopedia of Police Forces and Correctional Systems
REF HV 7901.W63 2006 v.1&2

This encyclopedia could be very helpful to undergraduate students working on papers in International Justice systems– volume 1 provides overviews of police forces and correctional systems in 198 countries, some better than others. Belarus goes on for 10 pages, while the Bahamas gets only 2 pages. The bibliographies are also uneven, but it still is a pretty good starting point.

Encyclopedia of war crimes and genocide
REF HV 6322.7.H67 2006

Includes Saddam (although not his sentencing) and Darfur and lots of other people and places that I’d never heard of – also has pretty good “further reading” sections to assist students with the next step in their research.

Encyclopedia of public choice
REF H 41.E57 2004

This has Interesting articles running the gamut from “Al-Qaeda” to “altruism,” from “the political economy of FEMA disaster payments” to “welfare economics,” plus biographies and excellent references. You really need to look at this one to understand its contents.
