Joe Mathewson. The Supreme Court and the press : the indispensable conflict. Northwestern University Press, 2011.

KF4772.M38 2011

 

Throughout its history, the Supreme Court has had a contentious relationship with the press. Yet, the Court and the press provide crucial services for each other as well: the press educates the public about the Courtís actions, and the Court is charged with protecting the freedoms on which the press relies. This book charts the history of this complex dynamic, from the Courtís early neglect of the First Amendment through the pressís coverage of todayís most controversial cases.  With this history in mind, the author offers a diagnosis of the current situation and solutions to the present shortcomings in the relationship between these two essential institutions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Annelise Riles. Collateral knowledge : legal reasoning in the global financial markets. University of Chicago Press, c2011.

K1100.R55 2011

 

This book argues that financial governance is made not just through top-down laws and policies, but also through the daily use of mundane legal techniques such as collateral by a variety of secondary agents, from legal technicians and retail investors to financiers and academics and even computerized trading programs. The author explores the uses of collateral in the financial markets as a regulatory device for stabilizing market transactions and seeks to demonstrate how these day-to-day private actions can be reformed to produce more effective forms of market regulation.
