Stuart P. Green. Thirteen ways to steal a bicycle: theft law in the information age. Harvard University Press, 2012.

K5217.G74 2012

 

In Thirteen ways to steal a bicycle: theft law in the information age, Stuart P. Green notes that the last significant reforms in Anglophone theft law, which occurred nearly fifty years ago, flattened moral distinctions, such that the same punishments now are assigned to much different offenses. Unreflective of community attitudes regarding theft, which favor degrees in blameworthiness according to what is stolen and under what conditions, and uninfluenced by developments in criminal law theory, theft law cries out for another reformation.

 

 

 

Jan G. Laitos. The right of nonuse. Oxford University Press, 2012.

K3478.L35 2012

 

In The right of nonuse, Jan G. Laitos reviews the history of manís relationship with the natural environment and develops new ways of thinking about the protection of nature. Instead of proceeding with man-based objectives, Laitos argues that man should protect the environment for its own inherent worth. Rather than giving humans more and more rights to clean up the environment, and to curb resources depletion, a right of nonuse held by the resource itself should exist. Natural resources have always had this parallel nonuse function, and people should recognize and legitimize it.
