Norman Pearlstine

Off the record : the press, the government, and the war over anonymous sources. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2007

KF8959.P7P43 2007

 

In this book, author Norman Pearlstine shows that “Plamegate” was not the clear case it seemed to be—and that confidentiality has become a weapon in the White House’s war on the press, a war fought with the unwitting complicity of the press itself. Pearlstine calls on Congress to pass a federal shield law protecting journalists from the needless intrusions of government; at the same time, he calls on the press to name its sources whenever possible.

 

William H. Page and John E. Lopatka

The Microsoft case : antitrust, high technology, and consumer welfare. University of Chicago Press, 2007

KF228.U5P34 2007

 

This book examines the implications of the momentous litigation from The Microsoft Case.  Tracing the development of the case from its conceptual origins through the trial and the key decisions on both liability and remedies, this book evaluates the defining antitrust litigation of our era.  The authors argue that, at critical points, the legal system failed consumers by overrating government’s ability to influence outcomes in a dynamic market.
