According to our hearts : Rhinelander v. Rhinelander and the law of the multiracial family / Angela Onwuachi-Willig.

Location: lax
Call #: KF228.R47 O59 2013
Publisher:


This landmark book looks at what it means to be a multiracial couple in the United States today.According to Our Hearts begins with a look back at a 1925 case in which a two-month marriage ends with a man suing his wife for misrepresentation of her race, and shows how our society has yet to come to terms with interracial marriage. Angela Onwuachi-Willig examines the issue by drawing from a variety of sources, including her own experiences. She argues that housing law, family law, and employment law fail, in important ways, to protect multiracial couples. In a society in which marriage is used to give, withhold, and take away status in the workplace and elsewhere she says interracial couples are at a disadvantage, which is only exacerbated by current law.

Corporate manslaughter and regulatory reform / Paul Almond.

Location: lax
Call #: KD7965 .A96 2013
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan,


Corporate Manslaughter and Regulatory Reform provides an innovative account of the emergence of new corporate manslaughter offences to criminalise deaths in the workplace during the last twenty years. Occurring in many different national jurisdictions, this book shows how these developments can be understood as a coherent phenomenon. Almond identifies the historical and legal origins of the instrumentalism that has limited the ability of health and safety regulation to respond effectively to work-related death cases, explaining how and why criminal law came to be used as a means of addressing these limitations by reinforcing the moral values underpinning regulation. The contemporary neoliberal political context poses fundamental challenges to systems of safety regulation; it has created an environment in which criminal law is seen as an effective and desirable means of delivering important moral and symbolic messages that regulation cannot communicate effectively itself.

Law and fair work in China / Sean Cooney, Sarah Biddulph and Ying Zhu.

Location: lacom
Call #: KNQ1270 .C66 2013
Publisher: Routledge,


China’s economic reforms have brought the country both major international clout and widespread domestic prosperity. At the same time, the reforms have led to significant social upheaval, particularly manifest in labour relations. Each year, several hundred thousand disputes break out over working conditions, many of them violent, and the Chinese state has responded with both legal and political strategies. This book investigates how Chinese governments have used law, and other forms of regulation, to govern working conditions and combat labour disputes. Starting from its beginnings in the Republican period the book traces the evolution of the law of work in modern China right up to the reforms of the present day. It goes on to consider the structure of Chinese work law, drawing on both Chinese and Western scholarship to provide new insights into its unique features and assess where the law is innovative and where it is stagnant and unresponsive. Finally, the authors explore the various legal and extra-legal techniques successive Chinese governments have adopted to enforce employment law and the responses of firms, workers and organizations to these practices.

Legal reform and business contracts in developing economies : trust, culture, and law in Dakar / Julie Paquin.

Location: lacom
Call #: KTG920 .P37 2012
Publisher: Ashgate Pub.,


This book examines the prospects for business law reform to drive economic development in developing countries. It argues that, despite statements to the contrary, cultural factors and other local conditions in developing countries are not properly taken into account in current business law reform programs. Utilizing the city of Dakar as an example, this book investigates the consequences of this lack of fit between local needs and transplanted legal models by examining the potential and actual impact of the OHADA program of law reform on local business practices. Focusing on how managers make decisions and apply appropriate norms in routine business operations, the book documents how contractual disputes arise and are solved in Dakar and the role played by formal law in these processes. By examining imported law from the point of view of the end-users of legal reforms, the book reveals the complex relationship between formal law, local cultural norms and the activities of SMEs operating in developing economies, and calls for a reconsideration of current law and development theory as well as the role of contract law in business decisions.

Social change in America : from the Revolution through the Civil War / Christopher Clark.

Location: lax
Call #: HN57 .C548 2006
Publisher: Ivan R. Dee,


The processes of social change in the late colonial period and early years of the new Republic made a dramatic imprint on the character of American society. These changes over a century or more were rooted in the origins of the United States, its rapid expansion of people and territory, its patterns of economic change and development, and the conflicts that led to its cataclysmic division and reunification through the Civil War. Christopher Clark's brilliant account of these changes in the social relationships of Americans breaks new ground in its emphasis on the crucial importance of free and unfree labor, regional characteristics, and the sustained tension between arguments for geographic expansion versus economic development.
