In the rapidly growing field of African literature in French, writing by women has largely been ignored. This book, the first comprehensive study of women's writing in francophone sub-Saharan Africa, redressess the critical imbalance and celebrates the originality of this fascinating new literature.
The recent rise of Francophone studies within French studies has created the need for a one-volume exploration of the range of expression in the French language following the colonial period. Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures collects discussions of literary texts and cultural identity from Europe, North Africa, the Caribbean, and South Asia--regions of the world that seem to have only the French language in common. Despite enormous differences among all the countries where French is spoken, Francophone literatures tend to deal with a similar spread of issues. This volume positions the study of the Francophone world and its cultures as a comparative project, in which post-colonial Francophone cultures and the specific alterity of these cultures emerge as inextricable from and essential to an understanding of modern France. Organized by region, boasting an international roster of contributors, and including summaries of selected creative and critical works and a guide to selected terms and figures, Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures is an ideal resource for scholars of French literature and advanced students looking to read beyond the French literary canon.
This book is intended to analyze and evaluate the Statute of the International Criminal Court which was newly created at the United Nations Diplomatic Conference in Rome, Italy on 17 July 1998 (The Rome Conference or the Conference). The book addresses a host of difficult questions and common questions the new permanent International Criminal Court (The ICC or The Court) can raise and possible answers to those questions. This book also records the legislative histories of each article of the ICC Statute and evaluates legal ramifications of the Statute. Even though the United States Government has argued the Rome Statute violates the law of treaties and is not consistent with international law, the author tries to prove that the Rome Statute does not violate the law of treaties and is consistent with international law. The Rome Statute is invaluable in that it codifies the present international law and international criminal law and procedure. The Statute, which was supported by 120 states in the world, summarize the present treaty law, customary international law and general principles of law, even though some contents of the Statute were watered down by some states.The author participated in the process for the adoption of the Rome Statute as a member of the Korean Delegation to the Rome Diplomatic Conference. Korea submitted a very important proposal on the jurisdiction of the Court, which the author was involved in, and tried to bridge the gaps between the U.S position and various other states' positions. On the basis of his own reservations and experiences at the Rome Conference, the author thinks the Rome Statute has delicate balances among various interests of countries and will be a great weapon for the World to fight with against the most heinous international crimes: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes of aggression.Therefore, this book is an insider's observation and a legislative history of the Rome Statute. However, the views appearing in this book are not those of the Korean Government, but solely those of the author as an international law scholar and a participant in the Rome Conference.Contents: 1.
