The limits of international law by Jack L Goldsmith ( )
27 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 1,810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Limits of International Law" argues that International Law matters but that its scope and significance is far less than assumed by academics, the media, and many public officials. Adopting a rational choice framework, the authors show that International Law is a term that we use to refer to variously circumscribed cases of international cooperation. States are able to cooperate through International Law but only under narrow conditions; much of International Law merely ratifies existing relationships, and has no independent normative force. Indeed, recent efforts to replace international politics with law and judicial process rests on a misunderstanding of the past accomplishments of International Law. "The Limits of International Law" will have important implications for debates about the role of International Law in the foreign policy of the United States and other nations
The perils of global legalism by Eric A Posner ( )
16 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first months of the Obama administration have led to expectations, both in the United States and abroad, that in the coming years America will increasingly promote the international rule of law--a position that many believe is both ethically necessary and in the nation's best interests. With The Perils of Global Legalism, Eric A. Posner explains that such views demonstrate a dangerously naive tendency toward legalism--an idealistic belief that law can be effective even in the absence of legitimate institutions of governance. After tracing the historical roots of the concept, Posner carefully

The executive unbound after the Madisonian republic by Eric A Posner ( )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ever since Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. used "imperial presidency" as a book title, the term has become central to the debate about the balance of power in the U.S. government. Since the presidency of George W. Bush, when advocates of executive power such as Dick Cheney gained ascendancy, the argument has blazed hotter than ever. Many argue the Constitution itself is in grave danger. What is to be done?

Law and social norms by Eric A Posner ( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What is the role of law in a society in which order is maintained mostly through social norms, trust, and nonlegal sanctions? Eric Posner argues that social norms are sometimes desirable yet sometimes odious, and that the law is critical to enhancing good social norms and undermining bad ones. But he also argues that the proper regulation of such norms is a delicate and complex task, and that current understanding of them is inadequate for guiding judges and lawmakers. What is needed, and what this book offers, is a model of the relationship between law and social norms. The model shows that people's concern with establishing cooperative relationships leads them to engage in certain kinds of imitative behavior. The resulting behavioral patterns are called social norms."--BOOK JACKET
Law and happiness by Eric A Posner ( )
12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores the rapidly developing area of research called hedonics or "happiness studies." Researchers from fields such as philosophy, law, economics, and psychology explore the bases of happiness and what factors can increase or decrease it. The results have implications for both law and public policy
New foundations of cost-benefit analysis by Matthew D Adler ( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book, the authors reconceptualize cost-benefit analysis, arguing that its objective should be overall well-being rather than economic efficiency. They show why the link between preferences and well-being is more complicated than economists have thought. This book not only places cost-benefit analysis on a firmer theoretical foundation, but also has many practical implications for how government agencies should undertake cost-benefit studies."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Climate change justice by Eric A Posner ( Book )
15 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and German and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Climate change and justice are so closely associated that many take it for granted that a global climate treaty should directly address both issues together. In clear language, this book proposes four basic principles for designing the only kind of climate treaty that will work

9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is divided into two parts. The first contains more traditional law and economics articles, covering a range of conventional legal topics. This part, it is hoped, will give the novice a flavour of the state of the field and the traditional methods of analysis. The second part attempts to introduce new methodological techniques and subject-matter concerns to law and economics

The housing crisis and bankruptcy reform : the prepackaged Chapter 13 approach by Eric A Posner ( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The housing crisis threatens to destroy hundreds of billions of dollars of value by causing homeowners with negative equity to walk away from their houses. A house in foreclosure is worth 30 to 50 percent less than a house that a homeowner either retains or sells on the market, and a foreclosed house damages neighboring property values as well. We advocate a reform of Chapter 13 that would allow homeowners to strip down the value of their mortgages in a prepackaged bankruptcy. Such a plan would give homeowners an incentive to keep or resell their homes, thus reducing the market value loss of homes while protecting the effective value of creditors' interests. Two further key elements of the plan are that it uses prices based on the average house price in a particular ZIP code, which reduces moral hazard; and it is automated, requiring only a rubber stamp by a bankruptcy judge or other official, thus preserving judicial resources. Other plans, including that of the Obama administration, are compared."
