26 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Draws heavily on two previous works. The first ... 'On reading the Constitution,' appeared in the Utah law review in 1988. It was a lightly edited version of the Tanner Lectures given by Laurence Tribe at the University of Utah in November 1986, and forms the basis for what became Chapters 1 and 2 of this book. Chapters 3 through 5 are based on 'Levels of generality in the definition of rights,' a recent collaboration by the two of us, which first appeared in the fall 1990 edition of the Chicago law review"--Acknowledgments, page [vii]

No litmus test : law versus politics in the twenty-first century by Michael C Dorf( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Backed by academic critics who have been arguing against the possibility of objectivity for roughly a century, many critics on the left have essentially given up: Law, they contend, is simply politics in disguise. By analyzing the most pressing controversies of our day, Columbia University law professor Michael C. Dorf defends the possibility of principled legal decision making against the attacks of both the right and the left. From Bush V. Gore to the war in Iraq, No Litmus Test demonstrates that even when the law provides no clear-cut answers, it offers tools for distinguishing good arguments from bad ones."--Jacket

Beating hearts : abortion and animal rights by Sherry F Colb( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can someone who condemns hunting, animal farming, and animal experimentation also favor legal abortion, which is the deliberate destruction of a human fetus? The authors of Beating Hearts aim to reconcile this apparent conflict and examine the surprisingly similar strategic and tactical questions faced by activists in the pro-life and animal rights movements. Beating Hearts maintains that sentience, or the ability to have subjective experiences, grounds a being's entitlement to moral concern. The authors argue that nearly all human exploitation of animals is unjustified. Early abortions do not contradict the sentience principle because they precede fetal sentience, and Beating Hearts explains why the mere potential for sentience does not create moral entitlements. Late abortions do raise serious moral questions, but forcing a woman to carry a child to term is problematic as a form of gender-based exploitation. These ethical explorations lead to a wider discussion of the strategies deployed by the pro-life and animal rights movements. Should legal reforms precede or follow attitudinal change? Do gory images win over or alienate supporters? Is violence ever principled? By probing the connections between debates about abortion and animal rights, Bating Hearts uses each highly contested set of questions to shed light on the other"--Unedited summary from book jacket

Constitutional Law by Michael C Dorf( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oxford Introductions to U.S. Law: Constitutional Law presents an accessible introduction to the enduring topics of American constitutional law, including judicial review, methods of interpretation, federalism, separation of powers, equal protection, and individual liberties. One of the most important functions performed by the American Constitution and the more than two centuries' worth of cases interpreting it is the allocation of decision-making. Professor Dorf and Professor Morrison frame many of these constitutional debates with this question of authority. When should courts rule that
Leading cases in constitutional law by Jesse H Choper( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An annually-revised paperback designed for a single-semester course on constitutional law, this book is roughly half the length of many hardcover casebooks. The six renowned authors, now including Michael Dorf and Frederick Schauer, are co-editors of a long-time favorite teaching book, the much larger Constitutional Law: Cases, Comments & Questions, 12th edition. "Leading Cases," which is a stripped-down version of that book, contains "the essentials" for teaching a basic course in constitutional law. Because the organization of the compact book parallels that of the much lengthier Choper - Fallon - Kamisar - Shiffrin - Dorf - Schauer casebook, which contains extensive Notes & Questions, the latter can serve as a "resource" book for instructors teaching from the paperback. Subsequent editions of "Leading Cases" will continue to be published every summer for classroom use in the fall and will include all the significant cases handed down during the most recent Supreme Court Term."--Publisher's website
