Featured Resource List

Thomas O. McGarity. The preemption war : when federal bureaucracies trump local juries. Yale University Press, c2008.

KF4600.M358 2008

 

This book explains that a quiet war has been raging for the last decade in the courts, federal regulatory agencies, and Congress—a war over federal agency preemption of state common law claims. McGarity takes up for the first time this increasingly important subject. He shows how preemption affects the way citizens are protected from harm and companies are held accountable for damage they unlawfully cause. This book offers a full analysis of the legal and policy issues under debate, and it brings into sharp focus the impact of preemption on the lives of people involved in actual lawsuits. McGarity highlights the arguments for and against preemption and suggests guidelines for resolving difficult issues in a variety of contexts.

 

 

Richard L. Revesz, Michael A. Livermore. Retaking rationality : how cost-benefit analysis can better protect the environment and our health. Oxford University Press, 2008.

KF3775.R48 2008

 

This book argues that one of the least understood-and most important-causes of our failure to protect the environment has been a misguided rejection of reason. The authors show that environmentalists, labor unions, and other progressive groups have declined to participate in the key governmental proceedings concerning the cost-benefit analysis of federal regulations. As a result of this vacuum, industry groups have captured cost-benefit analysis and used it to further their anti-regulatory ends. The resulting imbalance in political participation has profoundly affected the nation's regulatory and legal landscape. But Revesz and Livermore contend that economic analysis of regulations is necessary and that it needn't conflict with-and can in fact support-a more compassionate approach to environmental policy. Indeed, they show that we cannot give up on rationality if we truly want to protect our natural environment.
