Eric A. Posner, Adrian Vermeule.

Terror in the balance: security, liberty, and the courts. Oxford University Press, 2007.

KF5060.P67 2007

 

In Terror in the Balance, Posner and Vermeule argue that government should be given wide latitude to adjust policy and liberties in the times of emergency. They argue for the expansion of powers available to the executive as warranted. The judiciary should neither second-guess security policy nor interfere on constitutional grounds. In order to protect citizens, government can and should use any legal instrument that is warranted under ordinary cost-benefit analysis and argue that the value gained from the increase in security will exceed the losses from the decrease in liberty.

 

David L. Hudson, Jr.

The Rehnquist Court: understanding its impact and legacy. Praeger Publishers, 2007.

KF8742.H78 2007

 

For nearly 20 years, William Hubbs Rehnquist served as the 16th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. During these two decades, the Court issued major decisions involving federalism, abortion, affirmative action, civil rights, privacy, and the 2000 presidential election. Throughout his tenure, Justice Rehnquist was conventionally perceived as a conservative, partly for the anti-civil rights memos he had written earlier in his career. He became a lightning rod for controversy during his confirmation hearings for Associate Justice in 1972, and again in 1986 when he became Chief Justice. Hudson's nonpartisan examination of the Rehnquist Court shows that Rehnquist's conservatism is quite mild compared to that of Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia, and that Rehnquist did an admirable job of playing moderator as Chief Justice, exhibiting sensitivity toward his colleagues.
