    Democracy and Political Ignorance

    Somin Ilya  著 2016/6/15 出版

    one of the biggest problems with modern democracy is that most of the public is usually ignorant of politics and government. many people understand that their votes are unlikely to change the outcome of an election and don’t see the point in learning much about politics. this creates a nation of people with little political knowledge and little ability to objectively evaluate what theydo know.the second edition of democracy and political ignorance fully updates its analysis to include new and vital discussions on the big sort increased wealth and corporate sponsorship influencing political campaigns and the most up-to-date survey data on political ignorance from recent elections. ilya somin mines the depths of the current state of ignorance in america and reveals it as a major problem for democracy. he weighs various options for solving this problem provocatively arguing that political ignorance is best mitigated and its effects lessened by decentralizing and limiting government. people make better decisions when they have stronger incentives to acquire relevant informationand to use it wisely.

    Linked Contracts

    Samoy Ilse (EDT)Loos Marco (EDT)  著 Baker & Taylor Books 出版 2012/7/20 出版

    modern society is full of linked contracts. linked contracts in the broadest sense of the word can be defined as a plurality of separately concluded contracts that are somehow interrelated. however contract law is still primarily centered on traditional contractual relations between (just) two parties. this book explores the legal consequences of the existence of linked contracts and provides insights for practice and academia within this new phenomenon. several examples of linked contracts are covered including: purchase financing which consists of a sales contract and a credit contract financing the purchase (part i) * cartel agreements which consist of a framework contract and subsequent contracts to execute the framework contract (part ii) * linked contracts concluded within the framework of a construction project (part iii) * a chain of sales contracts between a producer and consumer or end user (part iv). the book concludes with an analysis of the provisions on linked contracts in the draft common frame of reference the consumer rights directive the draft optional instrument and a preliminary approach for a general regulation of the concept of linked contracts. the book is the result of the fruitful collaboration within the research program contract law and law of obligations in general of the ius commune research school (www.iuscommune.eu). linked contracts was the theme of the workshop on contract law during the 15th ius commune conference in leuven.

    blind goddess brings together the most significant writings of practitioners professors and advocates to make sense of what is perhaps the nation’s most astonishing and shameful achievement: the highest per capita incarceration of its citizens anywhere in the world compounded by the shockingly disproportionate imprisonment of poor people of color. although there is growing awareness of the huge fiscal cost of mass incarceration the moral human and social devastation of racially skewed law enforcement remains largely unrecognized.the experts and scholars in this collection elucidate the impact of race on each stage of the criminal process from policing and prosecuting to jury selection sentencing prison conditions and opportunities to reenter society. including selections from critically acclaimed new press books such as the new jim crow let’s get free and race to incarcerate alongside passages from other leading contemporary works from amy bach’s ordinary injustice to robert perkinson’s texas tough blind goddess provides easy access to a wealth of cutting-edge analyses and solutions.an essential volume for the general reader blind goddess is also an ideal reality-check for students of criminal law.
