Featured Resource List

David Crump ... [et al.]. Cases and materials on constitutional law. 5th ed. LexisNexis, c2009.

KF4549.C75 2009

 

This casebook is mostly traditional in approach. It begins with judicial review, deals next with legislative and executive powers, and contains coverage of individual rights in the latter half. The landmark cases, from Marbury v. Madison to Brown v. Board of Education to Bush v. Gore and beyond, are present. Though traditional in approach, this book includes many unique features to create an accessible yet stimulating learning experience for the student of Constitutional Law.

 

 

Richard P. Hiskes. The human right to a green future : environmental rights and intergenerational justice. Cambridge University Press, 2009.

K3585.H57 2009

                    

This book presents an argument for environmental human rights as the basis of intergenerational environmental justice. It argues that the rights to clean air, water, and soil should be seen as the environmental human rights of both present and future generations. It presents several new conceptualizations central to the development of theories of both human rights and justice, including emergent human rights, reflexive reciprocity as the foundation of justice, and a communitarian foundation for human rights that both protects the rights of future generations and makes possible an international consensus on human rights, beginning with environmental human rights. In the process of making the case for environmental human rights, the book surveys and contributes to the entire fields of human rights theory and environmental justice.
