Nicholas A. Ashford, Charles C. Caldart Environmental Law, Policy, and Economics : Reclaiming the Environmental Agenda

MIT Press, c2008

KF3775.A967 2008

 

This book offers a discussion of the important issues in environmental law, policy, and economics, tracing their recent development. The authors focus on pollution, addressing both pollution control and prevention, but also emphasize the evaluation, design, and use of the law to stimulate technical change and industrial transformation, arguing that there is a need to address broader issues of sustainable development.  They also address other topics: the obligations of industry, enforcement of environmental law, market-based and voluntary alternatives to traditional regulation, risk assessment, environmental economics, and technological innovation and diffusion.

Insanity : Murder, Madness, and the Law

Oxford University Press, 2008

KF9242.E95 2008

 

The insanity defense is one of the oldest fixtures of the Anglo-American legal tradition.

The author has chosen ten of the most influential and widely varied murder defendants that have used the insanity defense. Each case considered here was extremely controversial, hotly contested, and relied heavily on lengthy testimony by expert psychologists and psychiatrists. Several of them played a major role in shaping the criminal justice system as we know it today.
