Laws of image : privacy and publicity in America / Samantha Barbas.

Location: lax
Call #: KF1262 .B37 2015
Publisher: Stanford Law Books, an imprint of Stanford University Press,


Americans have long been obsessed with their images - their looks, public personas, and the impressions they make. This preoccupation has left its mark on the law. The 20th century saw the creation of laws that protect your right to control your public image, to defend your image, and to feel good about your image and public presentation of self. These include the legal actions against invasion of privacy, libel, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. With these laws came the phenomenon of 'personal image litigation' - individuals suing to vindicate their image rights. This book tells the story of how Americans came to use the law to protect and manage their images, feelings, and reputations. Find out more (catalog link)

Call #: KF8748 .Z55 2015
Publisher: University of Michigan Press,


When the U.S. Supreme Court announces a decision, reporters simplify and dramatize the complex legal issues by highlighting dissenting opinions and thus emphasizing conflict among the justices themselves. 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)
