CELLULAR CONVERGENCE AND THE DEATH OF PRIVACY
KF2780 .W53 2013
By Wicker, Stephen B.


Cellular technology has always been a surveillance technology, but "cellular convergence" - the growing trend for all forms of communication to consolidate onto the cellular handset - has dramatically increased the impact of that surveillance. In Cellular Convergence and the Death of Privacy, Stephen Wicker explores this unprecedented threat to privacy from three distinct but overlapping perspectives: the technical, the legal, and the social. Professor Wicker first describes cellular technology and cellular surveillance using language accessible to non-specialists. He then examines current legislation and Supreme Court jurisprudence that form the framework for discussions about rights in the context of cellular surveillance. Lastly, he addresses the social impact of surveillance on individual users. The story he tells is one of a technology that is changing the face of politics and economics, but in ways that remain highly uncertain.


THE CLASSICAL LIBERAL CONSTITUTION
KF4550 .E69 2014
By Epstein, Richard Allen


American liberals and conservatives alike take for granted a progressive view of the Constitution that took root in the early twentieth century. Richard Epstein laments this complacency which, he believes, explains America's current economic malaise and political gridlock. Steering clear of well-worn debates between defenders of originalism and proponents of a living Constitution, Epstein employs close textual reading, historical analysis, and political and economic theory to urge a return to the classical liberal theory of governance that animated the framers' original text, and to the limited government this theory supports.

THE HEART OF HUMAN RIGHTS
By Buchanan, Allen E.
K3240 .B825 2013


This is the first attempt to provide an in-depth moral assessment of the heart of the modern human rights enterprise: the system of international legal human rights. It is international human rights law--not any philosophical theory of moral human rights or any "folk" conception of moral human rights--that serves as the lingua franca of modern human rights practice. Yet contemporary philosophers have had little to say about international legal human rights. They have tended to assume, rather than to argue, that international legal human rights, if morally justified, must mirror or at least help realize moral human rights. But this assumption is mistaken. International legal human rights, like many other legal rights, can be justified by several different types of moral considerations, of which the need to realize a corresponding moral right is only one.


MARITIME LAW EVOLVING: Thirty Years of Southampton
K1150.A6 M37 2013


To mark the 30th anniversary of the Institute of Maritime Law at Southampton University, current and former maritime law researchers have come together to discuss the evolution of this fascinating area of law in the last 30 years, as well as to stimulate discussion on its possible future. The contributions provide a series of thought-provoking essays on the most controversial and topical issues which have occupied maritime law researchers in the last three decades and which will continue to be at the heart of this ever-evolving discipline in the foreseeable future. The book cuts across disciplines, spanning developments in areas as diverse as the management of the oceans, the evolution of the carriage and insurance sides of shipping law, and the ever increasing influence of the European legislator in matters of conflicts of laws and enforcement.


MINDS, BRAINS, AND THE LAW: The Conceptual Foundations of Law and Neuroscience
K346 .P36 2013
By Pardo, Michael S.


In Minds, Brains, and Law, Michael S. Pardo and Dennis Patterson analyze questions that lie at the core of implementing neuroscientific research and technology within the legal system. They examine the arguments favoring increased use of neuroscience in law, the scientific evidence available for the reliability of neuroscientific evidence in legal proceedings, and the integration of neuroscientific research into substantive legal doctrines.
