Henry Mark Holzer

The Supreme Court opinions of Clarence Thomas, 1991-2006: a conservative's perspective. McFarland & Co., c2007

KF8745.T48H655 2007

 

This book offers readers the opportunity to consider the real Clarence Thomas: the formidable intellectual and defender of the Constitution, amply represented by his most important majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions from 1991 through 2006. Holzer argues that Thomas's opinions reveal a consistent adherence to the principles of federalism, separation of powers, limited judicial review, and regard for individual rights as contemplated by the Framers of the Constitution. An appendix contains a list of every opinion Thomas has written.

 

Richard A. Epstein

Overdose : how excessive government regulation stifles pharmaceutical innovation. Yale University Press, c2006

KF1879.E67 2006

 

This book offers an examination of the pharmaceutical industry by looking closely at the regulatory framework that surrounds all aspects of making pharmaceutical products today. Epstein assesses which current legal and regulatory practices make sense and which have gone awry.

 

Epstein cautions that stringent controls stifle pharmaceutical innovation and slow the delivery of beneficial treatments to the patients who need them. He advises that the best system will feature strong property rights and clearly enforceable contracts, with minimal regulatory and judicial interference.
