[casi] 24 hours of reading

The CASI committee has recently discussed the idea of creating a list of
'24 hours of reading'.  Basically this would be a follow up to the 'guide
to sanctions', currently on the website, and would consist of about 24
'units' of reading.  Initially, the list would just appear online and all
documents would be referenced with appropiate web addresses.

We have currently come up with what we think is a reasonably comprehensive
list, but it could do with further input - any suggestions for articles
that would be appropiate, or comments on the pieces that we already have.
The current list (which is still a bit of a mess) is below (if anybody
wants it in word format please email me), and I'm looking forward to
hearing what people think.  Thanks!
