Matthew H. Kramer. The ethics of capital punishment : a philosophical investigation of evil and its consequences. Oxford University Press, c2011.

K5104.K73 2011

 

Debate has long been waged over the morality of capital punishment. This book pursues both a project of critical debunking of the familiar rationales for capital punishment and a project of partial vindication. The critical part presents an accessible and engaging critique of major arguments that have been offered - from the deterrence of future wrongdoing to the justice of retributory killing - arguing that they all fail to justify current practices of state execution. The book then presents an original justification for the death penalty, one that derives from a philosophical reconception of the nature of evil and the nature of defilement.

Nancy Yue Liu. Bio-privacy : privacy regulations and the challenge of biometrics. Routledge, c2012.

K3263.L58 2012

 

This book provides an in-depth consideration of the legal issues posed by the use of biometric technology. Focusing particularly on the relationship between the use of this technology and the protection of privacy, this book draws on material across a range of jurisdictions in order to explore several key questions. What are the privacy issues in the biometric context? How are these issues currently dealt with under the law? What principles are applied? Is the current regulation satisfactory? Is it applied consistently? And, more generally, what is the most appropriate way to deal with the legal implications of biometrics?
