Description : How judges weigh the competing demands of public accountability and judicial independence often is influenced by the process that recruits them to the bench. In Choosing Justice, the authors provide an analytical framework for measuring how the different modes of selection influence the behavior of elected and appointed judges. Using case studies, Sheldon and Maule apply an articulation model to state and federal selection experiences in order to understand why some judges accept a degree of accountability for their policy decisions, while others feel free to ignore political pressure.

Description : Ike Maxwell had everything oil and cattle could buy until grief and whiskey clashed seventeen years ago. Now sober and finally off parole, he is a man on a mission: mend fences with Justice, the son he's avoided all these years, before a third heart attack claims Ike's life. But Justice has Special Forces training and no reason to trust the man who almost killed him. His father's sudden appearance feels more like an IED than an olive branch. Most of all, Ike's arrival threatens to reveal the one secret that could destroy Justice's marriage. Can they find forgiveness for their past sins? Is there time to rebuild their faith and their relationship before tragedy strikes again? Can this prodigal father convince his son that this time...he is Choosing Justice?

Description : Defining the principles of justice that ought to govern the global economic and political sphere is one of the most urgent tasks that contemporary political philosophers face. But they must also contribute to working through the institutional implications of these principles. How might principles of global justice be realised? Must the institutions that aim to implement them be transnational, or can global justice be attained within the context of the state system? Can institutions of democratic self-governance be imagined beyond the nation-state? These are just some of the questions that still face political philosophers even when issues of abstract principle have been addressed. This volume establishes a dialogue between philosophers working at all levels of abstraction. Some of the authors are concerned with the grounds and scope of the obligations that bind the citizens and governments of rich countries to those of poorer nations. But many examine the question of how these obligations can be satisfied, both within existing institutional frameworks and beyond. Together their essays constitute a major contribution to the advancement of both the theoretical understanding and the practical requirements of global justice.

Description : Economic Justice: Race, Gender, Identity and Economics is a new casebook, offered as a means to further the conversation between critical legal scholarship and law and economics. The phrase ?economic justice? signals the authors? aim to engage these two cultures, and to find the answer to questions, such as: ? What can economics tell us about democracy and the law? ? What can theories of justice tell us about economic theory and the law? ? Why is there no legal language of ?class? in the United States, and what might one look like? Economic Justice: Race, Gender, Identity and Economics also uses the problem of racial and gender injustice as a site to interrogate both critical theory and economic theory. Just as race, gender, and class seem inextricably intertwined, economic and critical analysis both seem crucial to unraveling the knot of racial and gender inequality.

Description : For courses in courts and the judicial process; and law and society. The scope of its coverage, and its high academic quality, makes it attractive for graduate courses as well. Christopher P. Banks and David M. O'Brien wrote Courts and Judicial Policymaking to fill a need for a comprehensive textbook on law and judicial policymaking. The text provides a fresh perspective on the contemporary politics of law, courts, the legal profession, and judicial policymaking, often with an underlying comparative judicial process perspective. It covers four distinct areas: 1) What is law?; 2) How are courts organized and how do they work procedurally?; 3) What influences court access and, ultimately, judicial decision-making?; and, 4) How do courts make policy, and how is judicial authority constrained? It has relevant and contemporary analyses of literature from the political science and legal fields; and analyses from scholars who argue from the quantitative (attitudinal and strategic models) and the qualitative (new institutionalism) perspectives. It contains up-to-date charts and graphs on the organization of courts and trends in litigation, caseloads, and opinion writing, and it is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate classes. Feedback includes: "The book is extremely well written and organized, one of the smoothest textbooks I have read in terms of readability. The tables provided are a major selling point for the book - nicely summarize complex and often confusing materials." - Roger Handberg, University of Central Florida "The best feature of this manuscript is its thorough coverage of the subject matter as well as the in-depth analysis of specific topics and questions addressed in the boxed material and sidebars. Adding a comparative dimension by looking at the judicial systems and procedures of other countries is also quite novel." - Susan Mezey, Loyola University, Chicago
