Larry Yackle

Regulatory rights: Supreme Court activism, the public interest, and the making of constitutional law. University of Chicago Press, c2007

KF4552.Y33 2007

 

In this book, Larry Yackle sets out to convince readers that justices do create individual constitutional rights. To believe otherwise is to fundamentally misconceive both the work that justices do and the character of the American Constitution in whose name they do it. Yackle contends that the rights we enjoy are neither more nor less than what the justices choose to make of them. Regulatory Rights is appropriate for all those interested in constitutional law and the judiciary.

 

Doris Marie Provine

Unequal under law: race in the war on drugs. University of Chicago Press, c2007

KF4755.P76 2007

 

Race appears to be a factor in government efforts to control dangerous drugs, but the precise ways that race affects drug laws remain difficult to pinpoint. Unequal under Law lays out how decades of both manifest and latent racism helped shape a punitive U.S. drug policy whose impact on racial minorities has long been ignored by every branch of government.
