Lawrence Baum. Specializing the courts. The University of Chicago Press, 2011.

KF8775.B386 2011

 

This book provides an analysis of the growing trend toward specialization in the federal and state court systems.  The author examines the process by which court systems in the United States have become increasingly specialized and the motives that have led to the growth of specialization as well as the effects of judicial specialization on the work of the courts by demonstrating that under certain conditions, specialization can and does have fundamental effects on the policies that courts make.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christian Henderson. The persistent advocate and the use of force : the impact of the United States upon the jus ad bellum in the post-Cold War era. Ashgate Pub., c2010.

KZ6396.H46 2010

 

This book provides an empirical analysis and assessment of the discernible impact that the US has had upon the jus ad bellum in the post-Cold War era. The work focuses on the substantive areas of the jus ad bellum with which the US has most often and significantly engaged with through either its actions, justifications for actions, or adopted policies.  In doing so, it draws upon the theory of interpretive communities as its framework of analysis in order to gauge any impact upon this fundamental area of international law.
