  1. The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities

    The U.S. Supreme Court and Racial Minorities

    Leslie F. Goldstein
    The US Supreme Court and Racial Minorities: Two Centuries of Judicial Review on Trial offers an in-depth, chronologically arranged look at the record of the US Supreme Court on racial minorities over the course of its first two centuries. It does not pose the anachronistic standard, “Did the Supreme Court get it right" but rather, “How did the Supreme Court compare to other branches of the federal government at the time?” Have these Justices, prevented against removal from office by discontented voters (in contrast to the President and the members of Congress), done any better than the elected branches of government at protecting racial minorities in America?

It concludes with normative proposals addressed both to international organizations and to national judges confronted with such cases. Learn More

    Constitutional Preambles

    Wim Voermans, Maarten Stremler, Paul Cliteur

    Mapping a New World Order

    Edited by Vladimir Popov, Piotr Dutkiewicz

Ultimately, it argues that the rise of ‘the Rest’ would not only imply geopolitical shifts, but could lead to the proliferation of the new growth models in the Global South and to profound changes in international economic relations.

    Handbook on Growth and Sustainability

    Edited by Peter A. Victor, Brett Dolter
    This Handbook assembles original contributions from influential authors like Herman Daly, Paul Ekins, Marina Fischer-Kowalski, Jeroen van den Bergh, William E. Rees and Tim Jackson who have helped define our understanding of growth and sustainability.

With issues such as climate change looming large, our understanding of growth and sustainability is critical. This Handbook offers a broad range of perspectives that can help the reader decide: Growth? Sustainability? Both? Or neither? Learn More
