Featured Resource List


James G. Dwyer
The Relationship Rights of Children
Cambridge University Press, 2006

KF540.D89 2006

The book provides a theoretical analysis of what rights children should possess in connection with state decision making about their personal relationships. Numerous aspects of family law are examined, including paternity, adoption, custody and visitation, termination of parental rights, and grandparent visitation. The book examines the nature and normative foundation of adults' rights in connection with relationships among themselves and then assesses the extent to which the moral principles underlying adults' rights apply also to children. It concludes that the law should ascribe to children rights equivalent (though not identical) to those which adults enjoy. This would require substantial changes in the way the legal system treats children, including a reformation of the rules for establishing legal parent-child relationships at birth and of the rules for deciding whether to end a parent-child relationship.


Zielonka, Jan
Legal Pluralism in Conflict: Coping with Cultural Diversity in Law
Oxford University Press, 2006

JN30.Z54 2006

This book examines the evolving nature of the European Union following the fall of the Berlin Wall and the failure of the European Constitution. Its prime focus is the last wave of enlargement which has profoundly transformed the EU. The book spells out the origin, the shape, and the implications of this empire. It suggests a new way of thinking about the European Union and the process of European integration, showing “two Europes” coming together following the end of the Cold War. The book covers many fields from politics and economics to foreign affairs and security. It analyzes developments in both Eastern and Western Europe, and gives ample room for both theoretical and empirical considerations.
