R. Daniel Kelemen. Eurolegalism : the transformation of law and regulation in the European Union. Harvard University Press, 2011.

KJE947.K45 2011

 

Despite western Europe’s traditional disdain for the United States’ “adversarial legalism,” this book argues that the European Union is shifting toward a very similar approach to the law.  The author contends that the EU’s fragmented institutional structure and the priority it has put on market integration have generated political incentives and functional pressures that have moved EU policymakers to enact detailed, transparent, judicially enforceable rules—often framed as “rights”—and back them with public enforcement litigation as well as enhanced opportunities for private litigation by individuals, interest groups, and firms.

 

 

 

 

 

Nancy J. King, Joseph L. Hoffmann. Habeas for the twenty-first century : uses, abuses, and the future of the great writ. University of Chicago Press, 2011.

KF9011.K56 2011

 

For centuries, the writ of habeas corpus has served as an important safeguard against miscarriages of justice, and today it remains at the center of some of the most contentious issues of our time—among them terrorism, immigration, crime, and the death penalty. Yet, in recent decades, habeas has been seriously abused.  In this book, the authors argue that habeas should be exercised with greater prudence.  They examine the current use of the writ in the United States and offer sound reform proposals to help ensure its ongoing vitality in today’s justice system.
