James Steven Rogers. The end of negotiable instruments : bringing payment systems law out of the past. Oxford University Press, c2011.

KF957.R63 2011

 

The modern American law of payment systems is in disarray. Efforts to create a unified body of law for payment systems have so far been unsuccessful.  Part of the reason for that failure is the assumption that the existing law works well for the traditional paper-based check system, and that problems have been created only by the evolution of new technologies.  This book challenges the basic assumptions of the law of checks and notes and its history, and provides a well-reasoned account of how the law could be changed to better suit the evolution of new payment technologies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mel A. Topf. A doubtful and perilous experiment : advisory opinions, state constitutions, and judicial supremacy. Oxford University Press, c2011.

KF4579.A38T67 2011

 

This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the history, concept, jurisprudence and controversies relating to state Supreme Court advisory opinions.  Though just ten states have adopted such advisory opinions (many others have debated but rejected them), they have been implicated in major issues regarding American judicial power. The book explains the-so far unexplained-first appearance of advisory authority in 1780, and address the persistent aura of illegitimacy that has always shadowed this authority.
