This volume brings to a close our four volumes on the chronicled life of Augusta during a very turbulent and pivotal period in the History of the United States: the opening-up of the West, the question of whether slavery would prevail nationally with political attempts to legitimize it in the new territories, starting with Kansas; a serious depression brought on by over expansion of our then growth industry, the railroads; the explosive discoveries of gold in most of the Western Territories; one of the worst wars in our history to settle once and for all whether we were to be "one nation indivisible" with slavery or not. Augusta's original three bound journals, which I inherited, with some 2,000 entries, beginning before she was seventeen, records not only her personal and occasionally tragic involvement in all of these events, but the influence these events had on her life at the time. Her journal entries from 1857 to 1860 present a record of the founding (by her father and a few other abolitionists) the town of Eldorado, Kansas that is better and more authentic than any professional early history of the city we've seen. She described in detail these two or three-dozen mostly young pioneers that were willing to go far beyond the Frontier to establish a voting district free of proslavery domination.

Offering valuable insights into Irish literary history, this second volume of the journals of Lady Gregory completes the typed version of her diaries and adds the unedited text of the manuscript diary she kept from November 1930 until two weeks before her death. It describes her continuing efforts to get the Lane Pictures returned to Ireland; the passing of Coole into the hands of the Irish Forestry Department; Abbey Theatre problems; the conflict over Sean O'Casey's The Plough and the Stars and break with him over the refusal of The Silver Tassie; Denis Johnston's connection with the Abbey as producer and playwright (with illuminating insights into the Abbey's refusal of The Lady Says 'No '); and other controversial matters. Plagued by ill health, Lady Gregory was nevertheless determined not to give in to old age, and she relates her daily struggle against her infirmities with calm objectivity.

Judge Mettraux's four-volume compendium, International Crimes: Law and Practice, will provide the most detailed and authoritative account to-date of the law of international crimes. It is a scholarly tour de force providing a unique blend of academic rigour and an insight into the practice of international criminal law. The compendium is un-rivalled in its breadth and depth, covering almost a century of legal practice, dozens of jurisdictions (national and international), thousands of decisions and judgments and hundreds of cases. This first volume discusses in detail the law of genocide: its definition, elements, normative status, and relationship to the other core international crimes. While the book is an invaluable tool for academics and researchers, it is particularly suited to legal practitioners, guiding the reader through the practical and evidential challenges associated with the prosecution of international crimes.
