Cass R. Sunstein. Valuing life: humanizing the regulatory state. The University of Chicago Press, 2014.

KF5402.S86 2014

 

Drawing on his experience as Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Sunstein urges an approach to regulation that augments traditional cost-benefit analysis with consideration of nonquantifiable values like privacy and dignity. In this way, he argues, the regulatory state can be at once more human and more effective. 

 

 

 

 

 

Bryan Stevenson. Just mercy: a story of justice and redemption. Da Capo Press, 2014.

KF373.S7456A3 2014

 

As the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, Stevenson has worked on behalf of poor, disadvantaged, and wrongfully convicted clients. This book tells the story of one of the first cases he had as a young lawyer—representing a man who had been wrongfully sentenced to death—and places it in the context of Stevenson’s larger mission in pursuit of equal justice.
