John D. Inazu. Liberty's refuge : the forgotten freedom of assembly. Yale University Press, c2012.

KF4778.I53 2012

 

This book looks at an important constitutional freedom that today is largely forgotten: the right of assembly. While this right is at the heart of some of the most important social movements in American history, courts now prefer to speak about the freedoms of association and speech. But the right of “expressive association” undermines protections for groups whose purposes are demonstrable not by speech or expression but through ways of being. The author demonstrates that the forgetting of assembly and the embrace of association lose sight of important dimensions of our constitutional tradition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roger W. Shuy. The language of perjury cases. Oxford University Press, 2011.

KF9420.S55 2011

 

This book outlines the contributions that linguistics can make to both the gathering of evidence and the way that evidence is analyzed in perjury cases. The author describes eleven representative lawsuits—involving bankruptcy, unions, hunting licenses, doctors, priests, and Senators—for which he served as a consultant. His linguistic analysis illustrates how grammatical referencing, speech acts, discourse structure, framing, conveyed meaning, intentionality, and malicious language affected the outcome of these cases.
