James R. Maxeiner, Gyooho Lee, Armin Weber. Failures of American civil justice in international perspective. Cambridge University Press, 2011.

KF384.M39 2011

 

Critics have long recognized the American legal system's failings, offering abundant criticism but few solutions. This book provides a comparative-critical introduction to civil justice systems in the United States, Germany and Korea. It shows the shortcomings of the American system and compares them with German and Korean successes in implementing the rule of law. The author argues that these shortcomings could easily be fixed if the American legal systems were open to seeing how other legal systems' civil justice processes handle cases more efficiently and fairly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daniel J. Solove. Nothing to hide : the false tradeoff between privacy and security. Yale University Press, c2011.

KF1262.S663 2011

 

The debate between privacy and security has been framed incorrectly as a zero-sum game in which we are forced to choose between one value and the other.  Why can't we have both?  This book exposes the fallacies of many pro-security arguments that have skewed law and policy to favor security at the expense of privacy. Protecting privacy isn't fatal to security measures; it merely involves adequate oversight and regulation. The author traces the history of the privacy-security debate from the Revolution to the present day as well as points out the failings of our current system and offers specific remedies.
