John J. Coughlin. Canon law : a comparative study with Anglo-American legal theory. Oxford University Press, 2011.

KB243.C68A33 2011

 

This book discusses the canon law of the Roman Catholic Church from a comparative perspective.  It provides an overview of the subject and presents historical examples of antinomian and legalistic approaches to canon law.  The author also uses contemporary topics such as the clergy sexual abuse crisis, the ownership of church property, and the denial of Holy Communion to Catholic political officials to explore long-standing theoretical issues in canon law. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Carl F. Cranor. Legally poisoned : how the law puts us at risk from toxicants. Harvard University Press, 2011.

KF3775.C73 2011

Many suspected toxic hazards are unleashed every day that affect our health, but no public health law requires product testing of most chemical compounds before they enter the market. If products are deemed dangerous, toxicants must be forcibly reduced or removedóbut only after harm has been done. In this book, the author argues that just as pharmaceuticals and pesticides cannot be sold without pre-market testing, other chemical products should be subject to the same safety measures.
