Communication and Law Book Excerpt:

Communication and Law brings together scholars from law and communication to talk both generally and specifically about the theoretical and methodological approaches one can use to study the First Amendment and general communication law issues. The volume is intended to help graduate students and scholars at all skill levels think about new approaches to questions about communication law by offering a survey of the multidisciplinary work that is now available. It is designed to challenge the conventional notion that traditional legal research and social science methodological approaches are mutually exclusive enterprises. This book has been developed for researchers working in mass communication and law and will be appropriate for graduate students and scholars. It will also appeal to those in psychology, political science, and other areas who are interested in exploring questions of law in their research.

Communication Law in America Book Excerpt:

Communication Law in America is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow overview of the complicated ways in which U.S. law determines who may say what to (and about) whom. It covers the usual content– libel, invasion of privacy, copyright and trademark, access to government information, advertising, electronic media– all the while giving readers a sense of how and why this country has come to weigh freedom of speech above competing freedoms far more often than in other Western democracies. This fourth edition of the well-received text boasts over 300 new citations, including discussion of a dozen U. S. Supreme Court decisions handed down since the previous edition. The nearly 200 still photos and over 80 videos on the author-maintained website – generally not images of litigants but of the actual artifacts (TV and movie scenes, advertisements, news reports) that led to the law suits– have always represented dramatic added value to students and professors alike. The new edition includes 35 new visual elements, including 20 videos. The text also offers a new section on how the First Amendment applies to special populations, including students, government employees in general, and the military in particular.

The Study of Violent Crime Book Excerpt:

Violence is a complex subject that is rooted in a multitude of disciplines, including not only criminology but also psychology, sociology, biology, and other social science disciplines. It is only through understanding violence as a concept that we can hope to respond to it appropriately and to prevent it. The Study of Violent Crime: Its Correlates and Concerns is a comprehensive text that provides a current analysis of violence and violent crime in the United States. Topics discussed include: The history of violence in Europe and America Whether violent behavior can be predicted Possible correlates of violence, including values, poverty, low education, abuse and neglect, alcohol abuse, and shame Sociological theories surrounding crime causation, including social control, conflict and strain, and anomie Psychological approaches to understanding violence from Freud, Bentham, Skinner, and others Biological theories and the influence of positivism and determinism The role of early exposure to violence on future behavior and programs to counteract these effects Gang activity and hate crimes The history of punishment and its effectiveness Victimology and victimization Organized in logical fashion, each chapter builds on previous ones and makes use of concrete examples to clarify concepts. Action boxes help readers focus on salient points and review questions appear at the end of each chapter, enabling readers to test their assimilation of the material.

Law of Property Rights Protection Book Excerpt:

The on-going battle between government's desire to regulate private property use and property owners' equally powerful desire to avoid economically damaging or unreasonable limitations on their property is one of the most emotionally charged and fiercely contested issues in contemporary law. An enormous amount of litigation at every level of government has stemmed from questions surrounding the timing and amount of government compensation to an owner of regulated property. The relevant law has undergone a complete transformation over the past decade, so count on the Law of Property Rights Protection to bring you completely up to date. Organized according to the major elements of a property rights case, the book: Analyzes the case law and identifies which challenges were successful, what fact patterns proved compelling, and what tactics have failed. Offers advice on how best to handle common situations Covers the full range of property, drawing on recent cases involving contract rights, lease hold rights, an unpatented mining claim, the possibility of reverter, the right of entry, the use of water power, and the right to exclude members of the public from a shopping center. Using Laitos' strategic approach will help you formulate your own arguments and handle taking cases with confidence.

The topics in the book are organized in the same manner as they would actually arise in a construction project. First, the book deals with pre-construction issues licensing, bidding, and the formation of the construction contract. It then discusses what happens when things go wrong with breach of contract by the owner and/or the contractor. An in-depth analysis is provided with regard to claims involving delay, disruption, and acceleration. Several chapters are then devoted to statutory remedies-mechanics' liens, stop notices, and bonds both on public and private works. Finally, coverage is provided on other issues and subjects involving the construction industry, including expanding liability, home improvement contracts, bankruptcy, and alternative dispute resolution.
