Andrew Altman, Christopher Heath Wellman. A liberal theory of international justice. Oxford University Press, c2009.

JZ1308.A42 2009

 

This book presents a theory of international justice that combines the liberal idea that the lives of individuals are what ultimately matter with the notion that states have a basic right to organize and run their affairs as they see fit.  Often taking positions that run against the grain of current academic opinion, the authors apply this theory to controversial topics in the area of international justice including human rights, democracy, succession, international criminal tribunals, armed intervention, political assassination, global economic inequality, and immigration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cynthia Grant Bowman. Unmarried couples, law, and public policy. Oxford University Press, c2010.

KF505.C34 2010

 

This book explores the legal recognition of opposite-sex cohabitating couples in the United States.  It provides a review of the history of legal cohabitation in the U.S., the inadequacy of the legal remedies available to cohabitants in most states, the social science literature about cohabitation, and the experience of six other countries that have attempted legal reforms to address the problems of cohabitants.  The author argues that many benefits attendant upon formal marriage should be extended to cohabitants who have lived together for two years or have a child, unless the couple opts out of them by contract.
