Balancing constitutional rights: the origins and meanings of postwar legal discourse / Jacco Bomhoff. Cambridge University Press, 2013.

K247.B65 2013

 

In this book, Jacco Bomhoff examines the language of “balancing” in constitutional rights jurisprudence. While balancing discourse has become pervasive in jurisdictions around the world, Bomhoff argues that it means radically different things in different places. To support his argument, he compares the development of balancing in German and American constitutional jurisprudence. This analysis of balancing discourse then becomes a lens through which he examines the larger question of formalism and pragmatism as competing modes of legal reasoning.

Originalism and the good constitution / John O. McGinnis and Michael B. Rappaport. Harvard University Press, 2013.

KF4552.M34 2013

 

Constitutional originalism—the idea that constitutions should be interpreted according to the meaning ascribed to them at the time of their enactment—is a subject of paramount importance for students and scholars of constitutional law in the United States. In Originalism and the Good Constitution, authors John O. McGinnis and Michael B. Rappaport present a new defense of originalism grounded in respect for the supermajoritarian processes by which our Constitution was enacted. In the course of their argument, the authors address a number of problems associated with originalism, including the status of women and African Americans at the time of the Constitution’s enactment, as well as the abundance of non-originalist precedent in constitutional law.
