David E. Bernstein. Rehabilitating Lochner : defending individual rights against progressive reform. The University of Chicago Press, 2011.

KF228.L63B47 2011

 

This book provides a compelling survey of the history and background of Lochner v. New York, which invalidated state laws limiting work hours and became the leading case contending that novel economic regulations were unconstitutional. Tracing the influence of this decision through subsequent battles over segregation laws, sex discrimination, civil liberties, and more, the author argues not only that the court acted reasonably in Lochner, but that Lochner and like-minded cases have been widely misunderstood and unfairly maligned ever since.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anne Orford. International authority and the responsibility to protect. Cambridge University Press, 2011.

KZ6374.O74 2011

 

The idea that states and the international community have a responsibility to protect populations at risk has framed internationalist debates about conflict prevention, humanitarian aid, peacekeeping and territorial administration since 2001. This book situates the concept in a broad historical and jurisprudential context, demonstrating that the appeal to protection as the basis for de facto authority has emerged at times of civil war or revolution - the Protestant revolutions of early modern Europe, the bourgeois and communist revolutions of the following centuries and the revolution that is decolonization.
