Rebecca Hamlin. Let me be a refugee: administrative justice and the politics of asylum in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Oxford University Press, 2014. K3268.3.H36 2014

 

Although international law provides guidelines for the process of granting asylum, actual practice varies widely among nations. This book compares practices in three of the most popular refugee destinations—the United States, Canada, and Australia—and suggests that differences among them have less to do with policy than with the insularity of administrative institutions.

 

 

 

 

Rena Steinzor. Why not jail? Industrial catastrophes, corporate malfeasance, and government inaction. Cambridge University Press, 2014. KF9350.S74 2014

 

This book argues for more aggressive prosecution in cases of corporate malfeasance. It includes detailed analyses of five recent catastrophes—including the Texas City refinery explosion and the Deepwater Horizon oil spill—and offers suggestions for reform.
