The jurisprudential vision of Justice Antonin Scalia by David A Schultz( Book )
6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Antonin Scalia was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1986, conservatives hoped he would become the intellectual leader of President Reagan's judicial counterrevolution.

The authors examine Scalia's political and judicial philosophy and they outline the areas of the law
Social capital : critical perspectives on community and "Bowling alone" ( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection tackles the theme of isolation and the breakdown of mediating social institutions. It is, in part, a response to Robert Punnam's "Bowling Alone" as well as an attempt to create a broader idea of civil society. The essays contribute to the examination of democratic theory and practice, exploring one of the most popular causes of this decline in public trust - social capital. The essays utilize diverse methodologies - empirical and philosophical - and multiple perspectives to examine critically the social capital discourse and how it is related to political participation, civic engagement and American democracy

Evicted! : property rights and eminent domain in America by David A Schultz( Book )
3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 2005 Supreme Court decision Kelo v. City of New London, which upheld the taking of an individual's home by local government for the sake of private development, unleashed a firestorm of controversy. The backlash against eminent domain cuts across partisan, ideological, and racial lines, with 4 out of 5 Americans opposing Kelo. Critics of Kelo claim that it represents a radical departure in the law, putting every homeowner in jeopardy of dispossession by government at the service of corporate interests. But are property rights and eminent domain truly in mortal conflict? Written for general readers, property owners, and local government officials seeking to understand the implications of Kelo for eminent domain and property law, Evicted! cuts through all the hype and hysteria surrounding Kelo and argues that the alleged wave of eminent domain abuse is mostly a myth. Nevertheless, the author identifies certain legislative changes that are needed at the local, state, and national levels to better protect individual property owners when corporate thugs and corrupt government officials occasionally gang up against them.--Book jacket

American politics in the age of ignorance : why lawmakers choose belief over research by David A Schultz( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
State and local governments are often trumpeted as laboratories of democracy, capable of significant policy innovation and expertise. Yet the reality is that states more often than not repeatedly reenact failed policies that past research shows do not work. American Politics in the Age of Ignorance contends that policy making is shrouded in many myths and that policy makers often ignore ample research and evidence when it comes to legislating on a range of issues. Examining such hot button issues as restricting immigration and welfare migration, seeking to lure businesses with tax breaks, and providing public subsidies for sports stadiums, this book catalogs a list of repeatedly enacted failed policies that public officials advocate, offering a critical and skeptical analysis of the policy process
