The Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem was the great lost realm of chivalry. Created by the leaders of the First Crusade at the start of the 12Ysuperscript th" century, it was a feudal state comprised of Antioch, Edessa, Tripoli, Jerusalem, Jaffa, Ashqelon Krak, Montreal, Sidon and Galilee that lasted for two hundred years, surrounded by the Muslims of Palestine and Syria. This volume presents a picture of the curious social conditions that resulted from the establishment of a feudal society amid Oriental surroundings, and traces the growth of civilization and prosperity during the two centuries of Latin rule. The period is one of the most interesting in history, and the results of Frank colonisation in Palestine were far-reaching and important.
Together with the expansive process of human rights constitutional declarations, in addition to the writ of habeas corpus and of habeas data, Latin American constitutions created a specific judicial remedy for the protection of constitutional rights, known as the suit, action, recourse, or writ of amparo. After spreading throughout Latin America, it was incorporated in the American Convention of Human Rights. It is similar to the "injunctions" and the other equitable remedies of the United States legal system. This book examines, with a comparative constitutional law approach, the most recent trends in the constitutional and legal regulations in all Latin American countries regarding the amparo proceeding. It is an up-to-date abridged version of the course of lectures the author gave at the Columbia Law School analyzing the regulations of the seventeen amparo statutes in force in Latin America, as well as the regulation on the amparo guarantee established in Article 25 of the American Convention of Human Rights.
