Mark V. Tushnet

Out of range: why the Constitution can't end the battle over guns. Oxford University Press, 2007

KF3941.T87 2007

 

Few constitutional disputes maintain as powerful a grip on the public mind as the battle over the Second Amendment. The National Rifle Association and gun-control groups struggle unceasingly over a piece of the political landscape that no candidate for the presidency--and few for Congress--can afford to ignore. Tushnet breaks down the different positions on the Second Amendment, by examining various experiments in public policy, from both sides, and finds little clear evidence for the practical effectiveness of any approach to gun safety and prosecution. Ultimately, Tushnet argues, our view of the Second Amendment reflects our values and our vision of the nation.

KF1446.A315A83 2007

 

With the passing of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, accounting and finance departments are responding by changing the way they operate and hiring new staff to make sure financial reports are accurate. Essentials of Sarbanes-Oxley offers a simple approach to what every financial manager needs to know about Sarbanes-Oxley, including the non-accelerated filers, nonprofit companies, and foreign issuers. Actual examples of compliance issues are analyzed.
