    Book summary:

    Gilbert et al. examine the impact of churches and church membership patterns on third parties and independent candidates in 20th-century U.S. politics. Candidates who choose not to run for office under the rubric of a major party face a well-known set of obstacles, yet the absence of discussion about the interconnections between religious institutions and minor parties is striking. The book presents a theoretical framework for understanding how religious institutions create, support, and sustain the political culture of local communities; by playing this role religious institutions support major parties and impede the electoral chances of political outsiders.

    The book's central finding is that third candidates are not privy to the ties that bind Democratic and Republican voters to their parties; one of the factors that creates and strengthens such ties is religion. Therefore, third candidates do best where church and party loyalties are weakest, or where third candidates have existing bases of support. The rare third candidate or minor party that possesses a base of support centered around a denomination or religious group can overcome such barriers. These conclusions are supported by analysis of census data, election returns, and voter surveys spanning the 20th century. Special attention is given to the 1992 and 1996 presidential candidacies of H. Ross Perot. This is an important analysis for scholars and other researchers dealing with American third parties and independent candidates and the impact of religion on politics.

    Book summary:

    What is happening in the court-house in The Hague, to which Slobodan Milosevic has been brought, intermittently, since 2002? What purposes does the International Criminal Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia serve?

    '&most of these experts have featured the Tribunal as a 'political court' (Edward Greenspan) and "means of effecting policy" (Christopher Black), an 'instrument of revenge rather than justice' (Jon Holbrook) whose indictments are of a 'purely political nature' (Hans Koechler), at once the 'judicial arm of NATO (Kirsten Sellars) and the 'propaganda arm of NATO' too (Michael Mandel), politics flowing from the purpose, organization, funding and staffing of the Tribunal.' - Edward S. Herman & David Peterson

    '&the Tribunal's expenses were supposed to come out of the UN budget, but in fact it has depended on US and other governments' funding, on donations from George Soros and other private donors, with equipment and staff seconded by NATO members. Some $3 million came from the United States in 1994-5, when the US was failing to meets its financial obligations to the United Nations. Gilbert Guillaume, President of the International Court of Justice, complained to the UN General Assembly in October 2000 that the Tribunal got ten times more money than his court and suggested that this was because "various parties create new forums that will be more amenable to their arguments"&' - Michael Barratt Brown

    Proclaiming the Atonement Today Oak Hill School of Theology Series. A collection of lectures from one of Britain's most well-known Bible schools, Oak Hill College, by leaders in their fields. The cross of Jesus is central to Evangelical Christianity. Yet the theology of atonement is under attack, not only from those outside the evangelical fold but also from those within who challenge the doctrine of penal substitution. In this collection of papers, the writers defend a strong articulation of penal substitution in the face of contemporary challenges.
