David J. Bederman. Custom as a source of law. Cambridge University Press, 2010.

K282.B43 2010

 

This book examines the role of custom in law through a rigorous multidisciplinary, historical, and comparative approach, offering a fresh perspective on custom's enduring place in both domestic and international law.  It also explores whether custom is source of law that we should embrace in modern, sophisticated legal systems, or whether the notion of law from below is outdated, or even dangerous, today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simon Chesterman. One nation under surveillance : a new social contract to defend freedom without sacrificing liberty. Oxford University Press, 2011.

HM851.C44 2011

 

This book proposes a move away from questions of whether governments should collect information and onto more problematic and relevant questions concerning its use. By reframing the relationship between privacy and security in the language of a social contract, mediated by a citizenry who are active participants rather than passive targets, this book offers a framework to defend freedom without sacrificing liberty.
