Herbert A. Johnson. Gibbons v. Ogden : John Marshall, steamboats, and the commerce clause. University Press of Kansas, c2010.

KF228.G528J64 2010


Drawing on recent research into the early Court, this book discusses the 1824 Supreme Court case Gibbons v. Ogden.  Untangling the issues and arguments from the decision, the book reveals the lasting impact of this landmark case on both commerce in the Early Republic and the understanding and growth of federal power during the last 200 years.  In doing so, the author challenges the traditional view that Gibbons established that the Constitution bestowed upon Congress an exclusive power to regulate interstate commerce.








Oliver Mills. Biotechnological inventions : moral restraints and patent law. Rev. ed. Ashgate Pub., c2010.

K1519.B54M55 2010


This book discusses the role of moral considerations in the patent system as a form of regulation and examines why morality has become an important issue in the context of biotechnological inventions.  The origin, policy, and legislative history of patent law in both the United Sates and the member countries of the European Union are examined, with particular reference to the provisions relating to morality.  This edition has been fully revised and updated to take account of recent developments in this area.
