Pamela C. Corley. Concurring opinion writing on the U.S. Supreme Court. SUNY Press, c2010.

KF8742.C67 2010


This book provides a systematic examination of the content of Supreme Court concurrences.  Using both qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis, it offers a detailed portrait of judicial decision making by studying the process of opinion writing and the formation of legal doctrine through the unique lens of concurrences.  The author asserts that concurrences allow the justices to express their views about the law and engage in a dialogue of law with each other, the legal community, the public, and Congress. 








Richard A. Posner. A failure of capitalism : the crisis of '08 and the descent into depression. Harvard University Press, 2009.

HB3722.P67 2009


This book discusses the economic crisis of 2008, exploring the possible causes of the crisis as well as potential remedial approaches.  Among the facts and causes considered are excess savings flowing in from Asia and the lowering of interest rates by the Federal Reserve Board, the relation between executive compensation, short-term profit goals, and risky lending, the housing bubble, the low savings rate of the American people, and the highly leveraged balance sheets of large financial institutions.
