Fred Strebeigh. Equal : women reshape American law. 1st ed. W.W. Norton & Co., c2009.

KF226.S77 2009

 

This book tells the dramatic, untold story of how women battled blatant inequities in America's legal system. As late as 1967, men outnumbered women twenty to one in American law schools. With the loss of deferments from Vietnam, law schools admitted women to avoid plummeting enrollments. As women entered, the law resisted. Judges would not hire women. Law firms asserted a right to discriminate against women. Judges permitted discrimination against pregnant women. Courts viewed sexual harassment as, one judge said, "a game played by the male superiors." Against the odds, women fought to reshape the law. Fred Strebeigh has interviewed litigators, plaintiffs, and judges, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Catharine MacKinnon, and has done research in their private archives as well as those of other attorneys who took cases to the Supreme Court to make the law equal and just for all.

 

 

Robert L. Bradley Jr. Capitalism at work : business, government, and energy. M & M Scrivener Press, c2009.

HF5387.B687 2009

 

This book argues that the blame for Enron rests squarely with “political capitalism”—a system in which business firms routinely obtain government intervention to further their own interests at the expense of consumers, taxpayers, and competitors. Employing the timeless insights of Adam Smith, Samuel Smiles, and Ayn Rand, among others, Bradley shows how fashionable anti-capitalist doctrines set the stage for the ultimate business debacle. Those errant theories, like Enron itself, elevated form over substance, ignored legitimate criticism, and bypassed midcourse correction. Political capitalism was thus more than the handiwork of profit-hungry businessmen and power-hungry politicians. It was a legacy of failed scholarship. This book breaks new ground regarding business history, business ethics, business best practices, and public policies toward business.
