Brian C. Kalt. Constitutional cliffhangers : a legal guide for presidents and their enemies. Yale University Press, c2012

KF5051.K35 2012

 

The United States Constitution's provisions for selecting, replacing, and punishing presidents contain serious weaknesses that could lead to constitutional controversies. In this book, the author envisions six such controversies, such as the criminal prosecution of a sitting president, a two-term president's attempt to stay in power, the ousting of an allegedly disabled president, and more. None of these things has ever occurred, but in recent years many of them almost have. Besides being individually dramatic, these controversies provide an opportunity to think about how constitutional procedures can best be designed, interpreted, and repaired.

 

 

 

 

Jenny S. Martinez. The slave trade and the origins of international human rights law. Oxford University Press, c2012.

K3267.M37 2012

 

This book provides a novel interpretation of the roots of human rights law.  It contends that the foundation of the movement that we know today was a product of one of the nineteenth century's central moral causes: the movement to ban the international slave trade. The author focuses in particular on the international admiralty courts, which tried the crews of captured slave ships. Here then, buried in the dusty archives of admiralty courts, ships' logs, and the British foreign office, are the foundations of contemporary human rights law: international courts targeting states and non-state transnational actors while working on behalf the world's most persecuted peoples.
