Gary  Lawson, et al. The origins of the Necessary and Proper Clause. Cambridge University Press, 2010.

KF4930.O75 2010


The Necessary and Proper Clause is one of the most important parts of the US Constitution, but constitutional scholars have pronounced its origins and original meaning a mystery.  This book traces the lineage of the clause to the everyday law of the Founding Era and explains that its origins are found in law governing agencies, public administration, and corporations as well as common principles of fiduciary responsibility – reflecting the founders’ view that public office is truly a public trust.








Rafael Leal-Arcas. International trade and investment law : multilateral, regional, and bilateral governance. Edward Elgar, c2010.

K3943.L43 2010


This book examines international trade and investment law at various levels of governance, including unilateral, bilateral, regional, and multilateral arrangements, and provides a careful analysis of the choice of jurisdiction – regional versus global – for the settlement of disputes.  The author also explains how the process of making international trade law more multilateral has been largely successful and shows how this success could be emulated for international investment law.
