Since then, Dr. De Nike’s work has taken him to Cambodia, Ukraine, Armenia, West Bank/Gaza, Guyana, and Afghanistan. He has also taught at USF, San Francisco State University, and the University of New Mexico. His books and articles on law and anthropology cover such topics as the 1979 Trial of Pol Pot, a memoir on lawyering in military courts in Vietnam and West Germany, and indigenous land claims in Australia.
