Larry May. Global justice and due process. Cambridge University Press, 2011.

K3251.M39 2011

 

In this book the author makes a case for the extension of due process of law to international law.  Focusing on the procedural rights deriving from Magna Carta, such as the rights of habeas corpus and nonrefoulement, he examines the legal rights of detainees, whether at Guantanamo or in refugee camps.  He offers a conceptual and normative account of due process within a general system of global justice, and argues that due process should be recognized as jus cogens, as universally binding in international law.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kevin W. Saunders. Degradation : what the history of obscenity tells us about hate speech. New York University Press, c2011.

K5210.S28 2011

 

The book studies the relationship between obscenity and hate speech.  The author traces the legal trajectory of degradation as it moved from sexual depiction to hateful speech.  Looking closely at hate speech in several arenas, including racist, homophobic, and sexist speech in the workplace, classroom, and other real-life scenarios, he posits that if hate speech is today’s conceptual equivalent of obscenity, then the body of law that dictated obscenity might shed some much-needed light on what may or may not qualify as punishable hate speech.
