LaCroix book

 

 

Alison L. LaCroix 

The ideological origins of American federalism.  Harvard University Press, 2010

JK311.L33 2010

 

Hailed as a groundbreaking work by the publisher, this book traces the making of American federalism from the country’s colonial days to its emergence in the late eighteenth century as a normative theory of multilayered government.  By connecting the colonial, revolutionary, founding, and early national periods the author reveals the fundamental reconfigurations of legal and political power that accompanied the formation of “a well-constructed union”.

 

]Nagle book

John Copeland Nagle. 

Law's environment : how the law shapes the places we live.  Yale University Press, c2010.

K3585.N34 2010

 

The author examined the effects of the environmental law on five very diverse places in the country.  He found that some places are preserved by the law while others are not, and that environmental laws often have unexpected results while other laws have surprising effects on the environment.  He therefore argues that sound environmental policy requires better coordination among the many laws, regulations, and social norms that determine the values and uses of our scarce lands and waters.
