Featured Resource List

Ugo A. Mattei, Teemu Ruskola, Antonio Gidi. Schlesinger's comparative law : cases, text, materials. 7th ed. Foundation Press, 2009.

K558.M38 2009

 

This book enlarges the perspective of comparative law to include the experiences of the non-Western world, which increasingly occupies the center stage in a global approach to the law. Accordingly, the book incorporates diverse legal materials from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In addition, it includes a greatly enhanced methodological discussion that brings the book up-to-date with the latest debates in the field.

 

Michelle Madden Dempsey. Prosecuting domestic violence : a philosophical analysis. Oxford University Press, 2009.

KF9322.D46 2009     

 

This book asks the question: What should public prosecutors do when victims withdraw support for domestic violence prosecutions? The answer to this question that motivates the investigation undertaken in this book defends the claim that (other things being equal) domestic violence prosecutors should respond as feminists. This claim is intended as a provocative formulation of the proposition that domestic violence prosecutors should act for reasons generated by the value of reconstituting communities as less patriarchal.
