TL;DR: A history of the Nuremberg war-crimes trials by one of the key participants, Telford Taylor, the distinguished American lawyer who was a member of the prosecution staff and eventually became chief counsel, is described in this article.
Abstract: A history of the Nuremberg war-crimes trials by one of the key participants, Telford Taylor, the distinguished American lawyer who was a member of the prosecution staff and eventually became chief counsel. His legal expertise is complemented by an intimate knowledge of what took place outside the courtroom before and during the trials, which began in November 1945. Taylor reveals details of fierce infighting and personal vendettas among the Allied representatives; the prosecutors brilliance and their astonishing blunders; the judges private observations on the daily proceedings; and the negotiations that preceded the sentencing. This book makes clear the magnitude of the clashes that took place between those determined to secure justice and those bent solely on retribution. No less riveting are the author's portrayals of Goering, Hess, Ribbentrop and Speer as the trials progressed. What unfolded in the courtroom exposed the full horror of the acts that had been committed. The chamber was reduced to silence when an SS officer recounted impassively how his troops had rounded up and killed 90,000 Jews; panic overcame the head of the German State Bank as it became apparent that he had knowingly received jewels and other valuables taken from the bodies of concentration camp victims; and the judges departed visibly shaken by the first public showing of films depicting the concentration camps and their inmates as they were when liberated. Taylor also provides new details regarding Goering's suicide.

TL;DR: The question "What causes alignment?" is a central issue in debates on American foreign policy, and the choices that are made often turn on which hypotheses of alliance formation are endorsed as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: The question \"what causes alignment?\" is a central issue in debates on American foreign policy, and the choices that are made often turn on which hypotheses of alliance formation are endorsed. In general, those who believe that American security is fragile most often assume that Soviet allies are reliable and America's are prone to defect, while those who believe it is robust tend to view American allies as stronger and more reliable than those of the U.S.S.R. These divergent beliefs clash over a variety of specific issues. For example, should the U.S. increase its commitment to NATO, to prevent the growth of Soviet military power from leading to the \"Finlandization\" of Europe? Alternatively, should the U.S. do less in the expectation that its allies will do more? Should the U.S. oppose leftist regimes in the developing world because their domestic ideology will lead them to ally with the Soviet Union, or can a policy of accommodating radical nationalist regimes lead to good relations with them? Can Soviet or American military aid create reliable proxies in the Third World? Is it worth the effort and expense? Each of these questions carries important implications for American national security policy, and the answers ultimately turn upon which hypotheses of alliance formation are believed to be most valid. Despite the obvious importance of understanding how states select their partners, most scholarly research on alliances has ignored or obscured these questions.' This article is intended to, correct these omissions by outlining

Men have come to the limits of humanity and returned home, unable to forget what really was .... The suffering differs in kind, and most people have sense only for their
