Featured Resource List

Charles Foster. Choosing life, choosing death : the tyranny of autonomy in medical ethics and law. Hart, 2009.

K3601.F67 2009

 

This book surveys the main issues in medical law, noting in relation to each issue the power wielded by autonomy, asking whether that power can be justified, and suggesting how other principles can and should contribute to the law. It concludes that autonomy's status cannot be intellectually or ethically justified, and that positive discrimination in favour of the other balancing principles is urgently needed in order to avoid some sinister results.

 

 

Martin H. Redish. Wholesale justice : constitutional democracy and the problem of the class action lawsuit. Stanford Law Books, c2009.

KF8896.R438 2009

                    

This book represents the first scholarly effort to view the modern class action comprehensively through the lenses of American political and constitutional theory. Redish argues that the modern class action undermines foundational constitutional principles, including procedural due process and separation of powers, and has been improperly transformed from its origins as a complex procedural device into a means for altering controlling substantive law in highly undemocratic ways. Redish proposes an alternative vision of the class action lawsuit, one that is designed to enable the device to serve its valuable procedural purposes without simultaneously contravening core precepts of American constitutional democracy.
