Matthew J. Hoffmann. Climate governance at the crossroads : experimenting with a global response after Kyoto. Oxford University Press, c2011.

GE170.H64 2011

 

Conventional strategies of addressing climate change through universal, interstate negotiations have been stymied by the gaps that exist between the negotiating powers of states, rendering such initiatives stagnant and ineffectual.  In response, a number of new actors and processes have begun to challenge the traditionally exclusive authority of nation-states to create rules and manage environmental problems via multi-national treaties. This book explains how and why these new governance experiments have emerged, drawing upon a database of such initiatives to ascertain how these initiatives fit together and how they influence what is defined as environmental governance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

David L. Hudson Jr. Let the students speak! : a history of the fight for free expression in American schools. Beacon Press, c2011.

KF4772.H83 2011

 

This book details the rich history and growth of the First Amendment in public schools, from the early nineteenth-century's failed student free-expression claims to the development of protection for students by the U.S. Supreme Court.  The author brings this history vividly alive by drawing from interviews with key student litigants in famous cases.  He also discusses the raging free-speech controversies in public schools today, including dress codes and uniforms, cyberbullying, and the regulation of any violent-themed expression in a post-Columbine and Virginia Tech environment.
