Critical debates on counter-terrorism judicial review / edited by Fergal F. Davis and Fiona de Londras.

Location: lax
Call #: K5256 .C75 2013
Publisher:


Is judicial review an effective and appropriate way to regulate counter-terrorism measures? Some argue that the judiciary is ill-equipped to examine such measures, for instance because they lack the expertise of the institutions which bring them about under exigent conditions. Others claim that subjecting counter-terrorism measures to judicial review is crucial for maintaining a jurisdiction's principles of constitutionalism. This volume brings together voices from all sides of the debate from a broad range of jurisdictions, from North America, Europe and Australasia. Find out more (catalog link)

Eureka myth : creators, innovators, and everyday intellectual property / Jessica Silbey.

Location: lax
Call #: KF2979 .S59 2015
Publisher:


In 1789, the Constitution enshrined protections for authors and inventors. Yet we still debate the merits of intellectual property laws and whether they work as intended. What facilitates innovation and creativity in our digital age? What role does IP play in promoting innovation and creativity in the United States? Silbey cuts through the current debates and goes straight to the source: the artists and innovators themselves. By centering on accounts of creative and innovative work provided by artists, scientists, their employers, managers, and lawyers, The Eureka Myth breaks new ground. In doing so, it draws out new and surprising conclusions about the sometimes misinterpreted relationships between creativity, innovation, and IP. Find out more (catalog link)

Force of law / Frederick Schauer.

Location: lax
Call #: K579.D8 S33 2015
Publisher:


As citizens of liberal democratic countries, we think that we live under the rule of law. Governments make the rules, we live by them, and the police enforce them. The Force of Law critically examines these assumptions. Criminologist Mariana Valverde makes clear that while the law is usually regarded as the civilized, nonviolent way to deal with harms and conflicts, violence is integral to it. Police are authorized to handcuff, tase, and even kill people; courts of law confine people to prison and, in some countries, the state can put people to death. The Force of Law stimulates readers to become more informed about law and law enforcement and more active in efforts to make policing accountable to the public. Find out more (catalog link)

Sungjoon Cho responds to this contemporary intellectual demand by reconstructing the world trading system from a 'social' perspective. Find out more (catalog link)

Ideas with consequences : the Federalist Society and the conservative counterrevolution / Amanda Hollis-Brusky.

Location: lax
Call #: KF294.F43 H65 2015
Publisher:


The Federalist Society takes no positions, files no lawsuits, lobbies no legislators, and gives no political contributions. It is a debating society-though perhaps the most important one in American constitutional history since Hamilton, Jefferson, and Madison had dinner by themselves. In Ideas with Consequences, Amanda Hollis-Brusky shows how a loosely-organized group of lawyers, students, and professors with little of the conventional signs of political power have had such a profound influence on constitutional law.

Mea culpa : lessons on law and regret from U.S. history / Steven W. Bender.

Location: lax
Call #: KF4749 .B39 2015
Publisher:


In Mea Culpa, Steven W. Bender examines how the United States' collective shame about its past has shaped the evolution of law and behavior. We regret slavery and segregationist Jim Crow laws: we craft our legislation in response to that regret. By examining policies and practices that affected the lives of groups that have been historically marginalized and oppressed, Bender is able to draw persuasive connections between shame and its eventual legal manifestations.

Unifying the nation : Article IV of the United States Constitution / Joseph F. Zimmerman.

Location: lax
Call #: KF4605 .Z56 2015
Publisher:


While there is a vast amount of scholarship on the US Constitution, very little of it addresses Article IV. The article s first section, the Full Faith and Credit Clause, requires that individual states must respect the public acts, accords, and judicial proceedings of every other state, and the second section, the Privileges and Immunity Clause, prevents one state from treating the citizens of another state in a discriminatory manner. In "Unifying the Nation," Joseph F. Zimmerman provides a unique and comprehensive examination of court cases pertaining to both sections. Find out more (catalog link)

Location: lax
Call #: KF8748 .S825 2015
Publisher:


This work examines efforts to constrict access to the courts in the decades following the civil rights era. While most narratives of backlash center on conservatives in Congress and on the Supreme Court, there is another element to this story in which access to courts has been eroded by more hidden, procedural changes, driven by interests that cross party and ideological lines, that profoundly impact access to justice in the U.S. Find out more (catalog link)

Location: lax
Call #: K1447.15 .D73 2015
Publisher: Harvard University Press,


Abraham Drassinower presents a new way to balance the needs of creators and users of authored works.

Pox of liberty : how the Constitution left Americans rich, free, and prone to infection / Werner Troesken.

Location: lax
Call #: KF3775 .T764 2015
Publisher: The University of Chicago Press,


The United States is among the wealthiest nations in the world. But that wealth hasn't translated to a higher life expectancy, an area where the United States still ranks 38th - behind Cuba, Chile, Costa Rica, and Greece, among many others. Some fault the absence of universal health care or the persistence of social inequalities. Others blame unhealthy lifestyles. But these emphases on present-day behaviours and policies miss a much more fundamental determinant of societal health: the state. Werner Troesken looks at the history of the United States with a focus on three diseases - smallpox, typhoid fever, and yellow fever - to show how constitutional rules and provisions that promoted individual liberty and economic prosperity also influenced, for good and for bad, the country's ability to eradicate infectious disease.

Publisher: University Press of Kansas,


The first paperback edition of a classic of American constitutional theory. The book is divided into two parts. In Part I Professor Tushnet appraises the five major competing "grand theories" of constitutional law and interpretation, and, argues that none of them satisfy their own requirements for coherence and judicial constraint. In Part II the author offers a descriptive sociology of constitutional doctrine and raises critical questions as to whether a grand theory is necessary, is it possible to construct a coherent, useful grand theory, and is construction of an uncontroversial grand theory possible?

Location: lax
Call #: KF4635.A75 R43 2015
Publisher: Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School,


Over a century has passed since the United States Supreme Court decided a series of cases, known as the 'Insular Cases', that limited the applicability of constitutional rights in Puerto Rico and other overseas territories and allowed the United States to hold them indefinitely as subordinated possessions without the promise of representation or statehood.

Location: lax
Call #: KF4550 .F577 2015
Publisher: Oxford University Press,

He refers to conceptions of the Constitution as embodying abstract moral and political principles-not codifying concrete historical rules or practices-and of interpretation of those principles as requiring normative judgments about how they are best understood-not merely historical research to discover relatively specific original meanings.

Limits of legitimacy : dissenting opinions, media coverage, and public responses to Supreme Court decisions / Michael A. Zilis.

Location: lax
Call #: KF8748 .Z55 2015

This sometimes sensationalistic coverage fosters public controversy over specific rulings despite polls that show that Americans strongly believe in the Court's legitimacy as an institution. In The Limits of Legitimacy, Michael A. Zilis illuminates this link between case law and public opinion. Find out more (catalog link)

Public spaces, marketplaces, and the Constitution : shopping malls and the First Amendment / Anthony Maniscalco.

Location: lax
Call #: KF4770 .M36 2015
Publisher: State University of New York Press,


n spite of their public attractions and millions of visitors, most shopping malls are now off-limits to free speech and expressive activity. The same may be said about many other public spaces and marketplaces in American cities and suburbs, leaving scholars and other observers to wonder where civic engagement is lawfully permitted in the United States. In 'Public Spaces, Marketplaces, and the Constitution', Anthony Maniscalco draws on key legal decisions, social theory, and urban history to demonstrate that public spaces have been split apart from First Amendment protections, while the expression of political ideas has been excluded from privately owned, publicly accessible malls.
