Sex, Preference, and Family brings together seventeen eminent philosophers and legal scholars who offer illuminating and often provocative commentary on sexuality (including sexual behavior, sexual orientation, and the role of pornography in shaping sexuality), on the family (including both same-sex and single-parent families), and on the proper role of law in these areas.

Democratic authority : a philosophical framework by David M Estlund ( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 392 libraries worldwide
Democracy, Estlund argues, is not naturally plausible. Why turn such important matters over to masses of people who have no expertise? Theories of democracy often try to answer this objection by appealing to the intrinsic value of democratic procedure. Estlund shows why this procedure doesn't work and offers an alternative.

[This book contains] contemporary readings [which] are distinctively philosophical, but will appeal to students in historical, empirical, legal, or policy-oriented disciplines which deal with democratic theory. The volume covers a wide range of issues, from the significance of political equality and deliberation, to the value of diversity and reasons to vote. The essays are united by their emphasis on normative questions about justification, legitimacy, and obligation.-Back cover.
