Beyond the carbon economy : energy law in transition / edited by Donald N. Zillman ... [et al.].  Oxford University Press, 2008.

KF2120.B49 2008

 

This book first examines the factors that create the problems of the present carbon economy.  It then provides international and regional legal perspectives by reviewing the roles of public international law and international legal bodies, regional legal structures and major international nongovernmental actors including the variety of renewable energy sources, new carbon fuels, nuclear power, demand controls, and energy efficiency.  Finally it explains how the law can impede or advance the shift to a world energy picture significantly different from that which exists today.

Judicial activism in common law supreme courts / edited by Brice Dickson.  Oxford University Press, 2007.

K3367.J825 2007

 

The jurisdictions covered include Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States.  The book surveys the decisions of the top courts of these common law countries over the last generation to determine how 'judicially active' they have been.  The analysis in each chapter focuses on the relationship between the role of the top courts and role of the legislature and executive.  Overall the book seeks to compare and contrast the different experiences and to identify the principles in accordance with which the various courts have decided to develop the law.
