The first months of the Obama administration have led to expectations, both in the United States and abroad, that in the coming years America will increasingly promote the international rule of law?a position that many believe is both ethically necessary and in the nation?s best interests. With The Perils of Global Legalism , Eric A. Posner explains... more...

Nearly all countries have ratified nearly all the major human rights treaties, and all governments profess support for human rights, yet most countries flagrantly violate the human rights of their citizens. This book argues that the reason why is that there is a contradiction between the goal of enforcing human rights-which requires simple rules-and... more...

In Terror in the Balance , Posner and Vermeule take on civil libertarians of both the left and the right, arguing that the government should be given wide latitude to adjust policy and liberties in the times of emergency. They emphasize the virtues of unilateral executive actions and argue for making extensive powers available to the executive as... more...

Climate change and justice are so closely associated that many people take it for granted that a global climate treaty should--indeed, must--directly address both issues together.

The authors chart the rise of executive authority and they look at the legislation which was designed to limit the presidency, but failed to do so. Political, cultural and social restraints,... more...

Since the earliest days of philosophy, thinkers have debated the meaning of the term happiness and the nature of the good life. But it is only in recent years that the study of happiness?or ?hedonics??has developed into a formal field of inquiry, cutting across a broad range of disciplines and offering insights into a variety of crucial questions... more...

The Limits of International Law argues that international law matters but that its scope and significance is far less than assumed by academics, the media, and many public officials. Adopting a rational choice framework, the authors show that international law is a term that we use to refer to variously circumscribed cases of international cooperation.... more...

Wer oder was schränkt im Verwaltungsstaat die enorme Macht der Exekutive ein? Im präsidentiellen Regierungssystem der USA ist dies in erster Linie das Verfassungsprinzip der »checks and balances«, welches dafür sorgt, dass die Verfassungsorgane sich gegenseitig kontrollieren und kein Arm der Gewaltenteilung zu viel Macht bündeln kann. -- Seit der Präsidentschaft... more...
