Featured Resource List

The future of America's death penalty : an agenda for the next generation of capital punishment research / edited by Charles S. Lanier, William J. Bowers, James R. Acker. Carolina Academic Press, c2009.

KF9227.C2F885 2009

 

Professor David R. Dow co-authored Chapter 13, “The Effects of AEDPA on Justice,” which begins on page 261.

 

This book, comprised of original chapters authored by nationally distinguished scholars, is an ambitious effort to identify the most critical issues confronting the future of capital punishment in the United States and the steps that must be taken to gather and analyze the information that will be necessary for informed policy judgments. Contributors articulate the most pressing issues of administration, litigation, legislation, and executive action confronting the future of capital punishment, and identify research strategies designed to supply answers to those questions.

 

 

Ruth Colker. When is separate unequal? : a disability perspective. Cambridge University Press, 2009.

KF480.C655 2009

 

This book does not start from the premise that separate is inherently unequal. Writing from an “anti-subordination perspective,” Professor Colker provides a framework for the courts and society to consider what programs or policies are most likely to lead to substantive equality for individuals with disabilities. In some contexts, she argues for more tolerance of disability-specific programs and, in other contexts, she argues for more disability-integrated programs. Her highly practical investigation includes the topics of K-12 education, higher education, employment, voting, and provision of health care. At the end of the book, she applies this perspective to the racial arena, arguing that school districts should be given latitude to implement more use of racial criteria to attain integrated schools because such environments are most likely to help attain substantive equality from an anti-subordination perspective. The book measures the attainment of equality not on the basis of worn-out mantras but instead on the basis of substantive gains.
