Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: RepresentingtheRace

 

Kenneth W. Mack. Representing the race: the creation of the civil rights lawyer. Harvard University Press, 2012.

KF372.M33 2012

This book tells the story of an enduring paradox of American race relations, through the prism of a collective biography of African American lawyers who worked in the era of segregation. Practicing the law and seeking justice for diverse clients, they confronted a tension between their racial identity as black men and women and their professional identity as lawyers. Both blacks and whites demanded that these attorneys stand apart from their racial community as members of the legal fraternity. Yet, at the same time, they were expected to be “authentic”—that is, in sympathy with the black masses. The stories of these lawyers pose the unsettling question: what, ultimately, does it mean to “represent” a minority group in the give-and-take of American law and politics?

 

 

Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: PartlyLawsCommon

 

 

 

Jeremy Waldron. Partly laws common to all mankind: foreign law in American courts. Yale University Press, 2012.

KF358.W35 2012

 

This book examines the propriety of United States court judges citing to foreign law in their rulings. The occasional citation of foreign law by the United States Supreme Court, especially in constitutional cases, is interpreted through the lens of legal theory and jurisprudence. The book argues that nations are governed not only by their own laws, but also in part by laws common to all mankind.  This foundation paves the way for the book’s key assertion: common law is not natural law but a grounded consensus among all nations. As a consequence of this, it is suggested that this consensus, and citation to foreign laws, will become increasingly important in jurisprudence and public affairs as the world becomes more globalized.
