Featured Resource List

Thomas Rixen. The political economy of international tax governance. Palgrave Macmillan, 2008.

K4460.R59 2008

 

This book deals with an issue that has so far received little attention in the study of the international political economy: the fate of the ‘power to tax’, one of the key attributes of the modern nation state, in an era of globalization. It shows that tax sovereignty is shaped and constrained in important ways by the international tax regime. The author presents a theory-driven empirical account of the establishment, institutional form and transformation of international tax governance, from the 1920s, when it was solely concerned with the avoidance of double taxation, up to the present era of international tax competition.

 

 

Robin Feldman. The role of science in law. Oxford University Press, c2009.

KF385.F45 2009

 

While most authors frame problems at the intersection of law and science in terms of how rapidly scientific information changes and how frequently the legal system distorts science, this book argues that problems at the intersection of law and science flow not from the changing nature of science, but from the changing nature of law. With this in mind, the book uses examples from doctrines related to abortion, gene patenting, copyright, environmental regulation, antitrust law, the insanity defense, and other doctrines to explore the nature of law and to suggest approaches for making science work more effectively within the domain of law.
