Christopher F. Zurn

Deliberative democracy and the institutions of judicial review. Cambridge University Press, 2007

KF4550.Z9Z87 2007

 

Christopher F. Zurn explains why a normative theory of deliberative democratic constitutionalism yields the best understanding of the legitimacy of constitutional review. He then argues that this function should be institutionalized in a complex, multi-location structure including not only independent constitutional courts but also legislative and executive self-review that would enable inter-branch constitutional dialogue and constitutional amendment through deliberative civic constitutional forums. Finally, Zurn concludes that constitutional review is necessary to ensure the procedural requirements for legitimate democratic self-rule through deliberative cooperation. Zurn draws on empirical and comparative research to propose reformed institutions of constitutional review that encourage the development of fundamental law as an ongoing project of democratic deliberation and decision.

 

 

Kent Greenfield

The failure of corporate law: fundamental flaws and progressive possibilities. University of Chicago Press, 2006

KF1416.G74 2006

 

The term “public corporation” is misleading. Anyone can purchase shares of stock, but public corporations themselves are uninhibited by a sense of societal obligation or strict public oversight. But this has not always been the case, as until the beginning of the twentieth century, public corporations were deemed to have important civic responsibilities. 

 

With The Failure of Corporate Law, Kent Greenfield hopes to return corporate law to a system in which the public has a greater say in how firms are governed. He proposes changes in corporate governance that would enable corporations to meet the progressive goal of creating wealth for society as a whole rather than merely for shareholders and executives.
