Featured Resource List

Securing privacy in the Internet age / edited by Anupam Chander, Lauren Gelman, and Margaret Jane Radin. Stanford Law Books, c2008.

K3264.C65S43 2008

 

The book brings together many of the world's leading academics, litigators, and public policy advocates to work towards enhancing privacy and security. While the traditional adversary of privacy advocates has been the government, in what they see as the role of the Orwellian Big Brother, the principal focus of this book is the fraternity of Little Brothers—the corporations and individuals who seek to profit from gathering personal information about others. Dean Nimmer’s contribution titled “Contracts, Markets, and Data Control,” begins on page 325 and argues for allowing contract law and market forces, rather than governmental regulation, to define the scope of data control.

Freshwater access from a human rights perspective : a challenge to international water and human rights law. Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, K3240.B678 2008

 

This book comprehensively analyses the appropriateness of a human rights-based approach in safeguarding basic water supplies and determines its legal basis in international law. The study identifies applicable human rights and examines the concrete standard of protection they provide. It also discusses concepts deemed to strengthen a human rights-based approach to freshwater access by considering both their formal legal appropriateness as well as their suitability in legal reality.
