Gerard N. Magliocca. The tragedy of William Jennings Bryan : constitutional law and the politics of backlash. Yale University Press, c2011.

KF4541.M273 2011

 

Although Populist candidate William Jennings Bryan lost the presidential elections of 1896, 1900, and 1908, he was an influential political figure of his era. This book explores how Bryan's effort to reach the White House energized conservatives across the nation and caused a transformation in constitutional law.  Responding negatively to the Populist agenda, the Supreme Court established a host of new constitutional principles during the 1890s. Many of them proved long-lasting and highly consequential, including the "separate but equal" doctrine, the authorization of the use of force against striking workers, and the creation of the liberty of contract.

 

 

 

 

Leslie Paik. Discretionary justice : looking inside a juvenile drug court. Rutgers University Press, c2011.

KFC1196.P35 2011

 

Juvenile drug courts are on the rise in the United States, as a result of a favorable political climate and justice officials' endorsement of the therapeutic jurisprudence movement--the concept of combining therapeutic care with correctional discipline. The goal is to divert nonviolent youth drug offenders into addiction treatment instead of long-term incarceration. This book overviews the system, taking readers behind the scenes of the juvenile drug court and explores the staff's decision-making practices in assessing the youths' cases, concentrating on the way accountability and noncompliance are assessed.
