Ray D. Madoff. Immortality and the law : the rising power of the American dead. Yale University Press, c2010.

KF750.M328 2010

 

This book discusses how the current legal system protects the rights of the dead and describes the ways people are able to control their bodies, their property, and their reputations well after they are deceased.  The author explains that the rights of the American dead are growing daily and contends that this trend imposes real costs on the living. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wiktor Osiatyński. Human rights and their limits. Cambridge University Press, 2009.

K3240.O82 2009

 

This book describes the debates surrounding human rights and calls for a “soft universalism” conception of human rights that does not impose a particular rights regime on others.  The author argues that although rights are a prerequisite of freedom, they should be balanced with other values that are indispensable for social harmony and personal happiness.
