    Reorganizing Government

    Camacho AlejandroGlicksman Robert  著 New York Univ Pr 出版 2019/8/27 出版

    a pioneering model for constructing and assessing government authority and achieving policy goals more effectively regulation is frequently less successful than it could be largely because the allocation of authority to regulatory institutions and the relationships between them are misunderstood. as a result attempts to create new regulatory programs or mend under-performing ones are often poorly designed. reorganizing government explains how past approaches have failed to appreciate the full diversity of alternative approaches to organizing governmental authority. the authors illustrate the often neglected dimensional and functional aspects of inter-jurisdictional relations through in-depth explorations of several diverse case studies involving securities and banking regulation food safety pollution control resource conservation and terrorism prevention. this volume advances an analytical framework of governmental authority structured along three dimensions—centralization overlap and coordination. camacho and glicksman demonstrate how differentiating among these dimensions better illuminates the policy tradeoffs of organizational alternatives and reduces the risk of regulatory failure. the book also explains how differentiating allocations of authority based on governmental function can lead to more effective regulation and governance. the authors illustrate the practical value of this framework for future reorganization efforts through the lens of climate change an emerging and vital global policy challenge and propose an “adaptive governance infrastructure that could allow policy makers to embed the creation evaluation and adjustment of the organization of regulatory institutions into the democratic process itself.

    built around the experiences of older prisoners punished for aging looks at the challenges individuals face in canadian penitentiaries and their struggles for justice. through firsthand accounts and quantitative data drawn from extensive interviews this book brings forward the experiences of federally incarcerated people living their golden years behind bars. these experiences show the limited ability of the system to respond to heightened needs while also raising questions about how international and national laws and policies are applied and why they fail to ensure the safety and well-being of incarcerated individuals. in so doing adelina iftene explores the shortcomings of institutional processes prison-monitoring mechanisms and legal remedies available in courts and tribunals which leave prisoners vulnerable to rights abuses. some of the problems addressed in this book are not new; however the demographic shift and the increase in people dying in prisons after long inadequately addressed illnesses with few release options adds a renewed sense of urgency to reform. working from the interview data contextualized by participants’ lived experiences and building on previous work iftene seeks solutions for such reform hich would constitute a significant step forward not only in protecting older prisoners but in consolidating the status of incarcerated individuals as holders of substantive rights.

    Constitutional Amendments

    Albert Richard  著 Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2019/8/12 出版

    constitutional amendments: making breaking and changing constitutions is both a roadmap for navigating the intellectual universe of constitutional amendments and a blueprint for building and improving the rules of constitutional change. drawing from dozens of constitutions in every region of the world this book blends theory with practice to answer two all-important questions: what is an amendment and how should constitutional designers structure the procedures of constitutional change? the first matters now more than ever. reformers are exploiting the rules of constitutional amendment testing the limits of legal constraint undermining the norms of democratic government and flouting the constitution as written to create entirely new constitutions that masquerade as ordinary amendments. the second question is central to the performance and endurance of constitutions. constitutional designers today have virtually no resources to guide them in constructing the rules of amendment and scholars do not have a clear portrait of the significance of amendment rules in the project of constitutionalism. this book shows that no part of a constitution is more important than the procedures we use change it. amendment rules open a window into the soul of a constitution exposing its deepest vulnerabilities and revealing its greatest strengths. the codification of amendment rules often at the end of the text proves that last is not always least.

    a washington post notable book of the yeara new york times book review editors’ choicean award-winning constitutional law scholar at the university of chicago (who clerked for judge merrick b. garland justice stephen breyer and justice sandra day o’connor) gives us an engaging and alarming book that aims to vindicate the rights of public school stu­dents which have so often been undermined by the supreme court in recent decades.  judicial decisions assessing the constitutional rights of students in the nation’s public schools have consistently generated bitter controversy. from racial segregation to un­authorized immigration from antiwar protests to compul­sory flag salutes from economic inequality to teacher-led prayer—these are but a few of the cultural anxieties dividing american society that the supreme court has addressed in elementary and secondary schools. the schoolhouse gate gives a fresh lucid and provocative account of the historic legal battles waged over education and illuminates contemporary disputes that continue to fracture the nation.  justin driver maintains that since the 1970s the supreme court has regularly abdicated its responsibility for protecting students’ constitutional rights and risked trans­forming public schools into constitution-free zones. students deriving lessons about citizenship from the court’s decisions in recent decades would conclude that the following actions taken by educators pass constitutional muster: inflicting severe corporal punishment on students without any proce­dural protections searching students and their possessions without probable cause in bids to uncover violations of school rules random drug testing of students who are not suspected of wrongdoing and suppressing student speech for the view­point it espouses. taking their cue from such decisions lower courts have upheld a wide array of dubious school actions including degrading strip searches repressive dress codes draconian “zero tolerance disciplinary policies and severe restrictions on off-campus speech.  driver surveys this legal landscape with eloquence highlights the gripping personal narratives behind landmark clashes and warns that the repeated failure to honor students’ rights threatens our basic constitutional order. this magiste­rial book will make it impossible to view american schools—or america itself—in the same way again.
