Evan Wolfson

Why marriage matters: America, equality, and gay people's right to marry. Simon & Schuster Paperbacks, c2005

KF539.W65 2005

 

Why Marriage Matters offers a discussion of a question at the forefront of our national consciousness. This book brings into focus the very human significance of the right to marry in America.

 

In this volume, Wolfson demonstrates why the right to marry is important -- indeed necessary -- for all couples and for America's promise of equality.

 

Sotirios A. Barber and James E. Fleming

Constitutional interpretation: the basic questions. Oxford University Press, c2007

KF4550.B373 2007

In, Constitutional Interpretation: The Basic Questions, Barber and Fleming argue for a philosophic approach to constitutional interpretation, thus systematically critiquing any competing approaches. In doing so, the authors' survey the controversial and intriguing questions that have stirred constitutional debate in the United States for over two centuries, such as: how and for what ends should governmental institutions and powers be arranged; what does the Constitution mean under general circumstances and how should it be interpreted during concrete controversies; and finally how do we decide what our constitution means and who ultimately decides it's meaning.
