Kathleen R. Arnold. American immigration after 1996 : the shifting ground of political inclusion. Pennsylvania State University Press, c2011.

JV6465.A76 2011

 

Few topics generate as much heated public debate in the United States today as immigration across our southern border. Two positions have been staked out, one favoring the expansion of guest-worker programs and focusing on the economic benefits of immigration, and the other proposing greater physical and other barriers to entry and focusing more on the perceived threat to national security from immigration. Both sides of this debate, however, rely in their arguments on preconceived notions and unexamined assumptions. This book aims to reveal more of the underlying complexities of immigration and, in particular, to cast light on the relationship between globalization of the economy and issues of political sovereignty.

Chris Brummer. Soft law and the global financial system : rule making in the 21st century. Cambridge University Press, 2012.

K4444.B78 2012

 

The global financial crisis of 2008 has given way to a proliferation of international agreements aimed at strengthening the prudential oversight and supervision of financial market participants. Yet how these rules operate is not well understood. Because international financial rules are expressed through informal, non-binding accords, scholars tend to view them as either weak treaty substitutes, or by-products of national power. This book explains how international financial law "works" – and presents an alternative theory for understanding its purpose, operation, and limitations. It argues that international financial law is often bolstered by a range of reputational, market, and institutional mechanisms that make it more coercive than classical theories of international law predict.
