53 Mallat, ChibliA legal manifesto for the Lebanese Cabinet: Justice for Rafik Hariri and Moussa SadrLast week I pleaded for a legal manifesto for Irans Green Revolution.

67 Mallat, ChibliFederalism in the Middle East and EuropeFederalism is well know in its first, well-established dimension thanks to the extraordinary tradition this country has known. It is less known and is currently a big battle in process in Europe. It is completely unkown and is, I think, the intellectual battle to come in the Middle East. So, these w...2003

72 Firmage, Edwin B.Ends and means in conflictA great danger of our time is our intense preoccupation with the ends we seek, so much so that we have overlooked the effect, usually and perhaps always the determinative effect, that our choice of means will have made upon the nature of those ends.
