Paul Boudreaux. The housing bias : rethinking land use laws for a diverse new America. Palgrave Macmillan, 2011.

KF5698.B68 2011

 

As 300 million Americans squeeze into our country, and as single-person households outnumber parents with children, this book argues that it's time to rethink our land use laws that favor the single-family house. It visits sites of recent controversies - from an immigration dispute in a Virginia suburb, to eminent domain in New York City, to illegal apartments in the backyards of California. The author explores how we could scrap the old housing bias in favor of affluent homeowners, and in its place harness the free market to provide for a greater variety of residences - apartments, townhouses, and mobile homes - for the twenty-first century.

Daniel S. Medwed. Prosecution complex : America's race to convict, and its impact on the innocent. New York University Press, c2012.

KF9640.M43 2012

 

American prosecutors are asked to play two roles within the criminal justice system: they are supposed to be ministers of justice whose only goals are to ensure fair trials, whatever the outcomes of those trials might be—and they are also advocates of the government whose success rates are measured by how many convictions they get. This book explains that this double role creates an institutional “prosecution complex” that animates how district attorneys’ offices treat potentially innocent defendants at all stages of the process—and that can cause prosecutors to aid in the conviction of the innocent.
