The Oxford companion to American law by Kermit L Hall( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 2,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a one-volume, alphabetically arranged, encyclopedia introducing the main lines of American law, from the institutions, people, events, and cases to the doctrines and concepts. Produced under the editorship of a board of five noted scholars it comprises approximately 500 entries, each written by an expert in the field. The book targets a broad and diverse audience, one that ranges from students studying American law to lawyers or judges actively involved in the practice of law. In subject matter the book deals with the development of positive, common, and constitutional law in the US (as well as arbitration, mediation, and alternative dispute resolution), and the related institutions that support them. The Companion stresses concepts more than cases and people as primary subjects, preferring, except for the most iconic cases and the most storied figures of American law, to discuss each within conceptual entries. Although many of the entries must, of necessity, address technical matters, the Companion does not seek to provide a technical analysis of the law, either as a matter of history or current practice

New York Times v. Sullivan : civil rights, libel law, and the free press by Kermit L Hall( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the New York Times published an advertisement that accused Alabama officials of willfully abusing civil rights activists, Montgomery police commissioner Lester Sullivan filed suit for defamation. Alabama courts, citing factual errors in the ad, ordered the Times to pay half a million dollars in damages. The Times appealed to the Supreme Court, which had previously deferred to the states on libel issues. The justices, recognizing that Alabama's application of libel law threatened both the nation's free press and equal rights for African Americans, unanimously sided with the Times. The decision introduced a new First Amendment test: a public official cannot recover damages for libel unless he proves that the statement was made with the knowledge that it was false or with reckless disregard of whether it was false.-Publisher description
Constitutionalism and American culture : writing the new constitutional history( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking their cue from the late Paul L. Murphy, one of our nation's leading legal historians, this illustrious group of scholars argues that the field of constitutional history is "too important to be left solely to lawyers and judges." Their "state-of-the-field" volume reclaims constitutional history's rightful place as a vital and necessary part of our intellectual enterprise, in part by pushing the field onto fresh, even controversial, terrain. Much as Murphy has done, these scholars contend that this restoration is much needed and will greatly enrich judicial and public policy, advance a tradition of justice worthy of America's democratic aspirations, give due attention to cultural contexts, and, most importantly, afford Americans a richer understanding of their constitutional heritage
