Title:
Evidence of the Law: Proving Legal Claims
Date of Publication: February 21, 2017
Publisher:
 University of Chicago Press
ISBN:
978-0226432052

Evidence of the Law illuminates how many of the issues that are treated explicitly for factual disputes (for example, admissibility rules and burdens and standards of proof) are also present in disputes about questions of law—however, they are typically presupposed or left implicit in legal doctrine, reasoning, and decision making. Those who specialize in any doctrinal area of law will see how these epistemological issues apply in their domains, and those who specialize in areas of evidence, proof, and procedure will see ways in which their conceptual tools may have broader applicability throughout the law. This is a book that should be read by every law professor, and probably every judge and litigator, as well.” Michael S. Pardo, University of Alabama School of Law, coauthor of “Minds, Brains, and Law: The Conceptual Foundations of Law and Neuroscience”

Foreign Affairs Federalism: The Myth of National Exclusivity
Date of Publication: May 13, 2016
Publisher:
Oxford University Press
ISBN:
978-0199941490

“Glennon and Sloane’s Foreign Affairs Federalism immediately becomes the definitive work in the field. The authors decisively overthrow the conventional assumption that states have no role in U.S. foreign affairs. And they carefully and comprehensively replace it with a vision of shared responsibility that is faithful to the founding experience and relevant for today’s legal practice. It is an outstanding accomplishment.” Michael D. Ramsey, Professor of Law and Director of International and Comparative Law Programs, University of San Diego School of Law

Publisher:
Oxford University Press
ISBN:
978-0199793372

“James Fleming exhorts us to recognize both the good and the bad in our nation’s history, to honor the Constitution’s aspirational commitments, and to realize our country’s potential for a more perfect union. This remarkable book is a powerful statement of Fleming’s moral reading of the Constitution and an excellent guide to contemporary constitutional theory.” –Jack M. Balkin, Knight Professor of Constitutional Law and the First Amendment, Yale Law School

Title: What Is Parenthood?: Contemporary Debates about the Family
Date of Publication: January 14, 2013
Publisher: NYU Press
ISBN: 0814759424

“I highly recommend this thought provoking and compelling book. It examines parenthood at a time when the concept of the family is radically changing, most notably stemming from the rise of single-parent households and divorced and blended families. And it proposes a number of intelligent and important solutions.  After all, the long-term health of our representative democracy is dependent on our ability, as parents, to prepare our children for the future.” Leah Ward Sears,former Chief Justice, Georgia Supreme Court

Laws of Creation: Property Rights in the World of Ideas
Date of Publication: January 1, 2013
Publisher: Harvard University Press
ISBN: 0674066456

Laws of Creation revisits the important debates that have developed within the field of intellectual property law, and enlightens them with the perspective and logical apparatus of law and economics. Definitely, this is a book that academics in the field and libraries worldwide would want to have.” Francesco Parisi, University of Minnesota Law School

Title: Ordered Liberty: Rights, Responsibilities, and Virtues
Date of Publication: January 1, 2013
Publisher: Harvard University Press
ISBN: 0674059107

“In this robust defense of political liberalism, James Fleming and Linda McClain argue that protecting rights and promoting personal responsibility are not in conflict. Both state and civil society should help people learn how to govern themselves, respect each other, and develop their own moral capacities. This is an important book that moves beyond old debates about rights and addresses the problems of pluralism in the twenty-first century.” Jack M. Balkin, Yale Law School

Title: The Ponzi Scheme Puzzle: A History and Analysis of Con Artists and Victims
Date of Publication: August 13, 2012
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0199926611

“A financial thriller, a masterly page-turning inquiry into tragi-comic gullibility and greed, of Ponzi victims and perpetrators alike. The belief in market rationality (another confidence trick?) and the rocketing returns of finance, induced clever people to forget that there was no free lunch.” Avner Offer, Chichele Professor Emeritus of Economic History, University of Oxford

Title: The Odd Clauses: Understanding the Constitution Through Ten of Its Most Curious Provisions
Date of Publication: November 1, 2011
Publisher: Beacon Press
ISBN: 0807000906

“In Holy Hullabaloos, Jay Wexler took us along on what he called a “road trip” to some of the most important places connected to the First Amendment’s religion clauses. This time, in The Odd Clauses, Wexler exits off the highway to take us on a tour of some back roads of constitutional law: places scholars and the public seldom visit like the Bill of Attainder Clause or the Third Amendment (which prohibits quartering of troops in private houses during peacetime, in case you didn’t know.) The result is magical: you’ll have so much fun reading about these unsung constitutional provisions that you won’t realize until the trip is over how much you’ve learned.” Pamela S. Karlan, Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Professor of Public Interest Law

Date of Publication: May 17, 2011
Publisher: Stanford Law Books
ISBN: 0804769125

“Baxter’s study offers the first extended discussion of the development of Habermas’s views on law and society—a development not without its own tensions and difficulties—from The Theory of Communicative Action to Between Facts and Norms. It also highlights the underacknowledged influence of Niklas Luhmann, the other great contemporary German legal and social theorist, on Habermas’s views as a whole. An informed and important contribution to our understanding of Habermas’s political, legal, and social theory.” Kenneth Baynes, Syracuse University
