Assisted suicide : the liberal, humanist case against legalization / Kevin Yuill, University of Sunderland, UK.

Location: lax
Call #: R726 .Y85 2013
Publisher:


Critical of both sides of the discussion, this book presents an up-to-date analysis of the direction discussion is taking, showing that atheists, libertarians, those favouring abortion rights and stem-cell research should stand beside their religious compatriots in opposing legalization of assisted suicide. The author shows that the real issue behind the debate is not euthanasia but suicide. Rather than focusing on tragic cases, he indicates the real damage that will be done if we affirm the suicidal wishes of even a small segment of the population. Analyzing the movement for the right to die in historical terms, Yuill shows that, though many proponents of a change in the law believe they are rationalist heirs of such thinkers as John Stuart Mill, legalizing assisted suicide will reduce privacy and freedom. Finally, Yuill suggests a radical alternative to legalization of assisted suicide that would embrace both the cause of freedom and the anxieties of many about securing good deaths.

Devil is in the details : understanding the causes of policy specificity and ambiguity / Rachel VanSickle-Ward.

Location: lax
Call #: KF4945 .V36 2014
Publisher:


The level of detail in a given law can have dramatic consequences for how that law is interpreted and applied. In The Devil Is in the Details, Rachel VanSickle-Ward focuses on the dynamics of social policy construction in the United States in order to better understand why the wording of legislation can range from the specific to the ambiguous. When policies are high salience, the fissures produced by partisan discord, interest group diversity, and pluralistic executive branches promote ambiguous policy. When policies are lower profile, this relationship is more tenuous and, at times, inverted, with contention producing more policy detail. Put simply, on important and controversial legislation, ambiguity serves as a vehicle for compromise when key participants disagree over details. Moreover, fragmentation is a more powerful driver of ambiguity than limits in technical expertise or legislative capacity. This multi-method investigation is the first to measure statute specificity directly. VanSickle-Ward combines comprehensive content analysis of more than 250 health and welfare bills passed in 44 states in the 1990s and 2000s with in-depth interviews of policy-making elites.

Human cloning : four fallacies and their legal consequences / Kerry Lynn Macintosh.

Location: lax
Call #: QH442.2 .M253 2013
Publisher: Cambridge University Press,


Since Dolly the sheep was born, controversy has swirled around the technology of cloning. We recoil at the prospect of human copies, manufactured men and women, nefarious impersonators and resurrections of the dead. Such reactions have serious legal consequences: lawmakers have banned stem cell research along with the cloning of babies. But what if our minds have been playing tricks on us? What if everything we thought we knew about human cloning is rooted in intuition rather than fact? Human Cloning: Four Fallacies and Their Legal Consequences is a rollicking ride through science, psychology, and the law. Drawing on sources ranging from science fiction films to the Congressional Record, this book unmasks the role that psychological essentialism has played in bringing about cloning bans. It explains how hidden intuitions have caused conservatives and liberals to act contrary to their own most cherished ideals and values. Find out more (catalog link)

Human rights and the right to food / Claudia Tofan (ed.).

Location: lax
Call #: K3260 .H86 2013
Publisher:


The right to food is a basic human right, as well as a basic human need which should be guaranteed to all people. Food is the most basic necessity of life. When talking about the right to food, we generally tend to focus only on the developing countries and their right to food. In recent years, another issue with regard to food has been added as a human right: the right to safe food. The right to food has been recognized in numerous international instruments, including several meetings attended by world leaders or their representatives where they have increasingly committed themselves to promoting this right. Unfortunately, the international legal recognition of the right to adequate food and numerous commitments to its fulfillment has not translated into widespread acknowledgement and incorporation domestically by all States. Much of the content of the right to food has been developed as a result of these instruments; therefore it is necessary to look at them. This collection presents the most important documents and reports from the United Nations, regional organizations, and national achievements. Find out more (catalog link)

Intimate associations : the law and culture of American families / J. Herbie DiFonzo and Ruth C. Stern.

Call #: KF505 .D54 2013
Publisher:


The rise in divorce, cohabitation, single parenthood and same-sex partnerships along with an increase in surrogacy, adoption and assisted reproductive technologies has led to many diverse configurations of families, or intimate associations. The authors show that children of married parents fare better than children in a household formed by cohabiting adults. This is not to condemn non-traditional families but to point out that society and the law do not adequately provide for their needs. In conclusion, they call for a legal system that can adapt to the continually changing reality of family life. Find out more (catalog link)

Pharmaceutical patents : issues and considerations / Florian Aerts, editor.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3133.D78 P53 2013
Publisher:


Although brand-name pharmaceutical companies routinely procure patents on their innovative medications, such rights are not self-enforcing. Brand-name firms that wish to enforce their patents against generic competitors must therefore commence litigation in the federal courts. Such litigation ordinarily terminates in either a judgement of infringement, which typically blocks generic competition until such time as the patent expires, or a judgement that the patent is invalid or not infringed, which typically opens the market to generic entry. This book introduces and analyses innovation and competition policy issues associated with pharmaceutical patent litigation settlements. It begins with a review of pharmaceutical patent litigation procedures under the Hatch-Waxman Act, then introduces the concept of reverse payment settlements, and analyses the status of reverse payment settlements under antitrust laws, and discusses congressional issues and possible alternatives.

His study encompasses the Convention on Biological Diversity, the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, and the World Health Organization's PIP Framework. The study is organized in chapters on Antarctica, outer space and planetary objects, seas and oceans, genetic resources within the jurisdiction of nation states, plant genetic resource for food and agriculture, and human pandemic influenza virus.

Warnings and product liability : lessons learned from cognitive psychology and ergonomics / Sanne Pape.

Location: lax
Call #: KJE1630 .P37 2012
Publisher:


European Union citizens are injured each year while using products. Product liability law can contribute to preventing such damage by the way in which liability requirements in the context of warnings are framed and applied. Underlying these warning issues are a number of legal presumptions about how humans behave and interact with products and with their warnings. Primarily, liability law presumes that warnings can be effective in modifying user behavior. Relative to this is the manner in which courts or litigants evaluate product warnings in European product liability law. To rule more consistently and effectively in warning issues, a solution resides in the use of guidelines in European product liability laws that are based on empirical evidence on how humans interact with warnings. This book undertakes a behavioral approach towards the topic of warnings and product liability. Find out more (catalog link)
