"Farber's Environmental Law in a Nutshell provides a foundation for understanding environmental law.

Touches upon the many statutory and common-law regulations shaping the world in which we live."--Publisher's website
Beyond all reason : the radical assault on truth in American law by Daniel A Farber( )

17 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 2,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If historical and scientific truths are entirely relative social constructs, then Holocaust denial becomes merely a matter of perspective, and Creationism has as much "validity" as evolution. The authors go on to show that rather than promoting more dialogue, the radical multiculturalist preferences for legal storytelling and identity politics over reasoned argument produces an insular set of positions that resist open debate. Indeed, radical multiculturalists cannot critically examine each others' ideas without incurring vehement accusations of racism and sexism, much less engage in fruitful discussion with a mainstream that does not share their assumptions. Here again, Farber and Sherry show that the end result of such thinking is not freedom but a kind of totalitarianism where dissent cannot be tolerated and only the naked will to power remains to settle differences
Lincoln's Constitution by Daniel A Farber( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Civil War brought pressure on the Constitution that had never been seen before and hasn't been seen since, testing the document in much the same way as an engineer tests his materials to destruction to assess their structure. Did the South have the right to secede? Did Abraham Lincoln trample on the Bill of Rights? Can the president go to war without congressional approval? What is the nature of the Union, and what are the limits of states' rights? Forced to confront these issues during the Civil War, Lincoln ran squarely into the conflicts at the heart of our Constitution, conflicts that remain with us today." "Daniel Farber's purpose in Lincoln's Constitution is to lead the reader to understand exactly what Lincoln did, what arguments he made in defense of his actions, and how his words and deeds fit into the context of the times. Farber sets the constitutional problems that arose during Lincoln's term within their historical moment, as illuminated by recent work by historians, and investigates how well Lincoln's views hold up today - over a century later. The answers are crucial not only for a better understanding of the Civil War but also for shedding light on issues that the courts struggle with now: state sovereignty, presidential power, and national security limitations on civil liberties." "The first comprehensive evaluation of Lincoln's legal legacy in over seventy-five years, Lincoln's Constitution is a marvelous blending of history and constitutional thought. Written for the general reader, its insights speak urgently to us as our nation again finds itself in a time of danger and the limits of constitutional law are once more being tested."--Jacket
Desperately seeking certainty : the misguided quest for constitutional foundations by Daniel A Farber( )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Desperately Seeking Certainty attacks the current legal vogue for grand unified theories of constitutional interpretation. On both the Right and the Left, prominent legal scholars have been trying to build all of constitutional law from a single foundational idea. Although each of these ideas includes something of value, Dan Farber and Suzanna Sherry find that in the end no single, all-encompassing theory can successfully guide judges or provide definitive (or even sensible) answers to every constitutional question."--Jacket
Judgment calls : principle and politics in constitutional law by Daniel A Farber( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In exploring how constitutional adjudication works in practice (and how it can be made better), Farber and Sherry cover a wide range of topics that are relevant to their thesis and also independently important, including judicial opinion writing, the use of precedent, the judicial selection process, the structure of the American judiciary, and the nature of legal education. They conclude with a careful look at how the Supreme Court has treated three of the most significant and sensitive constitutional issues: terrorism, abortion, and affirmative action. Timely, trenchant, and carefully argued, Judgment Calls is a welcome addition to the literature on the intersection of constitutional interpretation and American politics."--Jacket
Law and public choice : a critical introduction by Daniel A Farber( )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Law and Public Choice, Daniel Farber and Philip Frickey present a remarkably rich and accessible introduction to the driving principles of public choice. In this, the first systematic look at the implications of social choice for legal doctrine, Farber and Frickey carefully review both the empirical and theoretical literature about interest group influence and provide a nonmathematical introduction to formal models of legislative action. Ideal for course use, this volume offers a balanced and perceptive analysis and critique of an approach which, within limits, can illuminate the dynamics of government decision-making
Security v. liberty : conflicts between civil liberties and national security in American history by Project Muse( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the varied ways in which threats to national security have affected civil liberties throughout American history. Has the government’s response to such threats led to a gradual loss of freedoms once taken for granted, or has the nation learned how to restore civil liberties after threats subside and how to put protections in place for the future? The authors focus on periods of national emergency in the twentieth century—from World War I through the Vietnam War—to explore how past episodes might bear upon today’s dilemma. They show that civil liberties are a not an immutable right, but the historically shifting result of a continuous struggle that has extended over two centuries. From publisher description

Eco-pragmatism : making sensible environmental decisions in an uncertain world by Daniel A Farber( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eco-pragmatism takes on the most critical controversies in environmental law today: how to weigh economic costs against environmental quality and human life, how to assess the long time horizons of environmental problems, and how to make appropriate decisions in the face of scientific uncertainty about the scope (or even the existence) of environmental problems." "Farber discusses whether (and how) we should "discount" the values of future environmental benefits, how we should use economic measurements of environmental values, and how we can streamline the regulatory process to respond to rapidly changing scientific knowledge. The result is a pragmatic decision-making framework that is flexible enough to accommodate the unique challenges each case presents."--Jacket

Climate change law by Daniel A Farber( Book )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past thirty years, a body of law dealing with the issue of climate change has taken form. This rapidly emerging body of law runs the gamut from state and local regulations to federal policies and international agreements and includes both public and private sector involvement. [This book] is based on the view that this issue is just too important to leave to specialists alone. The focus is on core concepts of climate change law, rather than all of the complex details. The book begins by discussing the scientific and policy issues that frame the legal scheme, including the state of climate science, the meaning of the social cost of carbon, and the variety of tools that are available to reduce carbon emissions. It then covers in turn the international, national, and state efforts in this sphere. Finally, the book turns to the challenge of adapting to climate change, before exploring the concept of geoengineering and the potential challenges associated with using geoengineering as a tool for addressing climate change"--Provided by publisher
