Featured Resource List

Jeannie Suk. At home in the law : how the domestic violence revolution is transforming privacy. Yale University Press, c2009.

KF9322.S85 2009

 

This books author examines case studies of major legal developments in contemporary American law pertaining to domestic violence, self-defense, privacy, sexual autonomy, and property in order to illuminate the changing relation between home and the law. Suk argues that the growing legal vision that has led to the breakdown of traditional boundaries between public and private space is resulting in a substantial reduction of autonomy and privacy for both women and men.

 

 

 

 

Chad R. Trulson and James W. Marquart. First available cell : desegregation of the Texas prison system. University of Texas Press, 2009.

KFT1788.5.T78 2009

 

This book tells the story of one of the greatest social experiments with racial desegregation in American history. Decades after the U.S. Supreme Court and certain governmental actions struck down racial segregation in the larger society, American prison administrators still boldly adhered to discriminatory practices. Not until 1975 did legislation prohibit racial segregation and discrimination in Texas prisons. However, vestiges of this practice endured behind prison walls. Charting the transformation from segregation to desegregation in Texas prisons—which resulted in Texas prisons becoming one of the most desegregated places in America—First Available Cell chronicles the pivotal steps in the process, including prison director George J. Beto's 1965 decision to allow inmates of different races to co-exist in the same prison setting, defying Southern norms.
