RECENT PUBLICATIONS The following short reviews reflect a selection of the books and reports (recently) submitted to the Helsinki Monitor.1 HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH WORLD REPORT 2000. EVENTS OF 1999 (NOVEMBER 1998-OCTOBER 1999) Human Rights Watch - December 1999 - New York-Washington-London-Brussels - 517 pp. In 1999 sovereignty loomed less large as an obstacle to stopping and redressing crimes against humanity. Governmental leaders who committed atrocities faced a greater chance of prosecution and even military intervention. There was also significant progress toward an international system of justice for the worst human rights offenders. This World Report covers developments in 68 countries. Most chapters examine significant human rights developments in a particular country; the response of global actors; and the freedom of local human rights defenders. Other chapters address important thematic concerns, including, among others things, children's rights, women's s human rights, the international Criminal Court and prisons. CONFESSIONS AT ANY COST. POLICE TORTURE IN RUSSIA. Human Rights Watch - November 1999 - New York-Washington-London-Brussels - 196 pp. Based on two years of research in cities and towns across Russia, this report documents rampant police torture and ill-treatment of detainees in custody.
