Race, incarceration, and American values by Glenn C Loury ( )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The United States, home to 5 percent of the world's population, now houses 25 percent of the world's prison inmates. Our incarceration rate is almost 40 percent greater than our nearest competitors (the Banamas, Belarus, and Russia). It is 6.2 times the Canadian rate and 12.3 times the rate in Japan." "Economist Glenn C. Loury argues that this extraordinary mass incarceration is not a response to rising crime rates or a proud success of social policy, but the product of a generation-old collective decision to become a more punitive society. He connects this policy to our history of racial oppression, showing that the punitive turn in American politics and culture emerged in the post-civil rights years and has today become the main vehicle for the reproduction of racial hierarchies." "Scholars Pamela S. Karlan, Tommie Shelby, and Loic Wacquant respond to Loury's arguments and explore further the impact of mass incarceration."--Jacket
The law of democracy : legal structure of the political process by Samuel Issacharoff ( Book )
18 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[The author's] examine an array of specific issues currently posing challenges to the practice of democratic politics in the United States: issues involving the individual right to vote, partisan and racial gerrymandering, the relationship of the state to political parties, campaign-finance reform, and the fair representation of minorities in democratic bodies ... If nothing else, [their] aim is to open the minds of readers to other ways of conceiving democratic institutions than those that are reflected in current arrangements. The wealth of issues makes it unlikely that any one-semester course will cover the entire book.-Pref

A constitution for all times by Pamela S Karlan ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Pamela S. Karlan is a unique figure in American law. A professor at Stanford Law School and former counsel for the NAACP, she has argued seven cases at the Supreme Court and worked on dozens more as a clerk for Justice Harry Blackmun. In her first book written for a general audience, she examines what happens in American courtrooms -- especially the Supreme Court -- and what it means for our everyday lives and to our national commitments to democracy, justice, and fairness. Through an exploration of current hot-button legal issues -- from voting rights to the death penalty, health care, same-sex marriage, invasive high-tech searches, and gun control -- Karlan makes a sophisticated and resonant case for her vision of the Constitution. At the heart of that vision is the conviction that the Constitution is an evolving document that enables government to solve novel problems and expand the sphere of human freedom. As skeptics charge congressional overreach on such issues as the Affordable Care Act and even voting rights, Karlan pushes back. On individual rights in particular, she believes the Constitution allows Congress to enforce the substance of its amendments. And she calls out the Roberts Court for its disdain for the other branches of government and for its alignment with a conservative agenda

Reed Elsevier Inc., et al., petitioners v. Irvin Muchnick, et al., respondents : on a writ of certiorari to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit : brief for the Muchnick respondents ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Question presented: Does 17 U.S.C. sec. 411(a) restrict the subject matter jurisdiction of the federal courts over copyright infringements actions? The case is a class action on behalf of authors who contributed works to print periodicals, which then entered into agreements to publish the authors' works in electronic databases. The class sued the print publishers and electronic databases, claiming that the authors had not consented to reproduction in electronic publication. All parties entered into a settlement agreement that, in grossly simplified form, would provide monetary compensation in exchange for electronic publication. The settlement purports to cover works that were timely registered with the Copyright Office (and thus entitled to statutory damages), those that were untimely registered, and those that were never registered. Objectors, led by Irvin Muchnick, a freelance writer covered by the class definition, argued that the settlement was unfair to authors of unregistered works and that the class representation was inadequate. The district court certified the class and approved the settlement over the objections. Muchnick and other objectors appealed
