The politics of the minimum wage by Jerold L Waltman( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracing the history of the minimum wage and exposing its inherent contradictions as a political issue, Jerold Waltman proposes an alternative to the economic arguments that now dominate debates over it. Citing over-whelming public support for the minimum wage as evidence of an enduring civic consciousness and humanitarianism, Waltman advocates recasting the discussion in terms of a political economy of citizenship."

Congress, the Supreme Court, and religious liberty : the case of City of Boerne v. Flores by Jerold L Waltman( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the landmark case City of Boerne v. Flores, the Supreme Court struck down a major federal statute--the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993. This decision raised questions not only about religious freedom in America, but also about federalism and separation of powers. Using the narrative framework of a tense dispute that divided a small Texas town, Waltman offers the first book-length analysis of the constitutional jurisprudence involved in the passage of the act. Congress, the Supreme Court, and Religious Liberty shows how this case and others like it stimulated and advanced an intense legal debate still ongoing today: Can and should the Supreme Court be the exclusive interpreter of the Constitution?"--Provided by publisher
Minimum wage policy in Great Britain and the United States by Jerold L Waltman( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzing wage policies and the political ideas that underlie them, including the irony of an Iraq funding bill leading to a minimum wage increase, this book compares not only Federal but State minimum wage policies and those of Britain as well. Going beyond the debate on public expenditure programs, the author examines the future of the "welfare state"? not from a perspective of entitlement but of citizenship in a public polity
Religious free exercise and contemporary American politics : the saga of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 by Jerold L Waltman( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religious Free Exercise and Contemporary American Politics<lt;lt;/span>gt;gt; explains why the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA) had to undergo a major metamorphosis in order to win approval. The book uses this episode as a window onto the dynamics of modern constitutional politics, specifically the constitutional politics of free exercise.<lt;lt;br />gt;gt;<lt;lt;br />gt;gt;The book argues that, although free exercise of religion remains an important value in American politics, it has been severely buffeted by both liberal individualism and identity politics. The former equates religious 8220;choice8221; with all other types of choices one makes in life, the latter sees religious identity as equivalent to racial, ethnic, gender, or sexual orientation identities. These two views coalesced in the late 1990s to force major modifications in the proposed Religious Liberty Protection Act, succeeding in limiting its reach only to prisoners and land use disputes.<lt;lt;br />gt;gt;<lt;lt;br />gt;gt;Written in an accessible manner for students of politics and religion as well as constitutional politics and law, the book offers a unique perspective on religious freedom in American politics

Principled judicial restraint : a case against activism by Jerold L Waltman( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many Americans believe that judicial activism is standard procedure on the modern Supreme Court. Political scientist Jerold Waltman asserts that justices routinely call for restraint when they disagree with specific majority decisions, but they then blithely abandon that position when it suits their purposes. Such calls for restraint are therefore unprincipled. In response, many people have argued that the Court should adopt a more restrained posture across the board, usually appealing to one of two ideas: the inherently undemocratic character of the Supreme Court or the likelihood that the Court is damaging its legitimacy by wading into so many controversial political issues. This book contends that what is sorely needed is a revised -- actually a resurrected -- constitutional theory that will delegitimize activism, or at least most of it, whether of the liberal or conservative variety

Authoritarianism and the Catholic Church in Latin America by Amy E Edmonds( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research examines the relationship between the Catholic Church and the military regimes in Latin America in the latter half of the twentieth century. Although prevailing theories explain church behavior regarding authoritarianism in reference to Protestant competition, I argue that church opposition is best explained by institutional arrangements in two ways. First, whether the church opposes authoritarianism is contingent on the degree of institutional autonomy the church possesses. Secondly, the strength of the opposition depends upon the presence of structural carriers, which are institutions connecting the church to society. The cases of Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay are examined through a historical institutionalist lens to test these hypotheses. Findings from these historical case studies indicate that both institutional autonomy and structural carriers are necessary for opposition. Ultimately, this study sheds light on the question of why religious institutions operate in varying ways in similar political contexts. It is also a contribution to the "path dependent model," which posits that the history of institutional arrangements serves as a strong influence on contemporary institutional behavior
Religious liberty through the lens of textualism and a Living Constitution : the First Amendment Establishment Clause interpretations of Justices William Brennan, Jr. and Antonin Scalia by Gregory O Nies( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines how the jurisprudential visions of United States Supreme Court Justices William Brennan, Jr. and Antonin Scalia guide their interpretations of the First Amendment Establishment Clause. The paper begins by examining Establishment Clause basics, the United States legal system and judicial philosophies, and Establishment Clause jurisprudential history. The elusive search for a standard Establishment Clause interpretation in modern jurisprudence is examined through an analysis of the linear historical view and the practitioner's categorical view. It is argued that the single most important factor in determining an overall jurisprudential philosophy is ones method of interpretation. Accordingly, the primary methods of constitutional interpretation, originalism, textualism and the Living Constitution method are examined. Justice Brennan's and Justice Scalia's jurisprudential visions are examined generally, and in the context of their Establishment Clause jurisprudence. The paper concludes that both justices have consistently applied their widely different but principled jurisprudential visions when interpreting the Establishment Clause

The case for the living wage by Jerold L Waltman( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This well-documented brief demonstrates that both poverty and excessive economic inequality are inimical to the maintenance of a healthy republic, and notes that providing a living wage is not only fair, but is superior to any other public policy such as cash transfers (or the Earned Income Tax Credit) in the effort to fight poverty.-http://www.booksinprint.com
