Peter Rowe Peter Rowe has filmed on all seven continents, capturing the extremes of nature from Antarctica to the Arabian Desert, crossed Baffin Island by dogsled and climbed many of the world’s most active volcanoes, camera in hand.. His crazy stories of his adventures in filmmaking range from the wild to the ribald. Starting with his underground initiation into filmmaking in the 1960s, working in the rock scene filming people like the Velvet Underground, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and The Doors, filmmaker Rowe moved on to a career spanning features, television series, and documentaries, focused on themes of adventure and exploration.. If you are interested in film or interested in adventure, you owe it to yourself to check out Rowe’s intriguing tale. Rowe has directed stars Jack Palance, Mickey Rooney and Kevin Zegers. He has filmed with sharks both of the Great White and the Hollywood variety. Whether it is becoming one of the first persons ever to stand on a just-born volcanic island in the South Pacific, filming inside a deep hot cave full of the world’s largest crystals, flying into the eye of a hurricane, or playing Hunter S. Thompson in a television portrait of the gonzo journalist’s last 24 hours, Rowe has great stories to tell of a life full of adventures in film. “A terrific read! Exotic locations, beautiful starlets, and behind the scenes gossip - Adventures in Filmmaking is an insiders’ look at over forty years in the movie business. And it’s everything you want it to be. From sex, drugs, rock and roll in the 60’s all the way to a worldwide TV phenomenon in the ‘10s. Peter Rowe recounts an amazing life lived large.” -Jeff Willner – Fellow, Royal Geographic Society, CEO, Traveledge “There’s times I thought I was having an acid flashback (somehow Rowe remembered the sixties). Other times I almost fell off my chair laughing. Throughout I was amazed by how much he has done and the names he has worked with, both as a filmmaker and as an adventurer. To not only survive but to flourish in the uber competitive worlds of the movie and TV biz for over forty years takes talent, smarts and perseverance and he has all in abundance. He’s also completely down to earth and a helluva good writer. Thoroughly entertaining. I couldn’t put it down.” -Jason Schoonover – Author, Thai Gold, Communications Director, The Explorers Club (Canada), Bangkok/Saskatoon "Admirably detailed, reliably engaging, and filled with tales of genuine adventure. Rowe recalls a range of cinematic memories from confronting the establishment with student projects to documenting the volatility of the natural world. Most importantly, he has the intelligence to recognize that emotional turmoil and physical danger can be equally thrilling." -Josh Johnson – Director, "Rewind This!" – Austin, Texas
Peter Rowe There is no doubt that international law was of major importance during the Gulf conflict of 1990-91. Military and other actions were repeatedly justified through reference to international law, and disputes about interpretation were frequent.
This book provides a definitive legal analysis of the conflict, with reference both to international and to English law. Some have been tempted to argue that international law is an ineffective means of controlling the activities of a state and its armed forces from the fact that there were no war crimes trials of the leaders of Iraq, or of any other state. International law does, however, provide a set of norms either (a) agreed to by individual states through the ratification of, or accession to, a treaty, or (b) which apply to all states by the operation of customary international law and other secondary sources. This book determines these norms in order to judge the manner in which individual states recognized the binding nature of them in the conduct of their operations. The contributors include lawyers from each of the three British armed services.
Peter Rowe This book discusses the manner in which Britain’s wars, which took place between 2000 and 2015, have interacted with the relevant principles of international law and English law for the purpose, primarily, of considering legal accountability.
During a debate in the House of Lords in 2005 a former Chief of the Defence Staff commented that ‘the Armed Forces are under legal siege.’ The book will discuss the major legal issues which have arisen, ranging from the various votes in Parliament to go to war, the constitutional relationship between ministers and senior commanders, the right under international law to use force, the influence of human rights law, the role of the courts in England (including the coroners’ courts), to the legal regime applying to the conduct of UK military operations. It will assess critically whether the armed forces will now have to accept that operations conducted outside the UK are subject to greater legal scrutiny than previously and whether, if this is the case, it is likely to hinder their future military activities.
This book will be of great interest to scholars of international law, the law of armed conflict, military studies and international relations, as well as to those with a professional or other interest in the subject matter.
