Reason and passion : Justice Brennan's enduring influence( Book )

In this collection, many of Justice Brennan's most distinguished colleagues and observers offer tribute to his far-reaching legacy. Anthony Lewis, Alan Dershowitz, Lani Guinier, Anna Quindlen, David Halberstam, Derrick Bell, and many others - including six Supreme Court justices - describe the opinions and dissents, and struggle and persuasion, that make up Justice Brennan's remarkable career. The sum of these essays is a look at the key issues of our time - civil liberties, race relations, family, privacy, crime, religion, poverty, politics - all of which were impacted by Justice Brennan's presence of the Supreme Court

"Chief Counsel of the Church Committee, Fritz Schwarz here uses his firsthand knowledge of executive abuse from previous decades to evaluate today's executive branch, which he and co-author Aziz Huq, director of the Brennan Center's Project on Liberty and National Security, find to be neither checked nor balanced, and indeed harmful to American liberty and security"--Page [2] and [3] of cover

Money, politics, and the Constitution : beyond Citizens United( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Last year, the Supreme Court reached an even more monumental decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, further inhibiting what Congress can do to regulate campaigns. That unwelcome development prompted the Brennan Center to join forces again with The Century Foundation to publish a new collection of essays, this time focused on Citizens United. Although we are clearly fighting an uphill battle ... we remain convinced that the influence of money on American democracy denigrates the integrity of the republic"--Foreword, p. vii

Better design, better elections by Lawrence D Norden( )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notorious butterfly ballot that Palm Beach County, Florida election officials used in the 2000 election is probably the most infamous of all election design snafus. It was one of many political, legal, and election administration missteps that plunged a presidential election into turmoil and set off a series of events that led to, among other things, a vast overhaul of the country's election administration, including the greatest change in voting technology in United States history. As this report demonstrates, poor ballot design and instructions have caused the loss of tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of votes in nearly every election year
Legal change : lessons from America's social movements by Jennifer Weiss-Wolf( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is it necessary to first win in the court of public opinion before the court of law? Or, conversely, does litigation prompt or direct public attention? What are the risks and benefits of court rulings that are ahead of public opinion? Which has a better, longer lasting chance, a favorable legal ruling or winning in the democratic branches? Is the goal legal change ... or change? What to do when the thing you care about is the thing you cannot say out loud? Or when the public is against you? How to grapple when the issue is divisive racially or in partisan terms, but strategy suggests reaching a broader majoritarian audience?
The machinery of democracy : protecting elections in an electronic world by Lawrence D Norden( )

6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law convened a high-level task force of voting experts from government, academia and the private sector to systematically analyze vulnerabilities in electronic voting systems used across the country. In this ground-breaking book, a crack team of technical experts concentrates on three main types of electronic voting systems: Direct Recording Electronic (DRE), Direct Recording Electronic with Voter Verified Paper Trail (DRE w/VVPT), and Precinct Count Optical Scan (PCOS). All three voting systems are shown to have significant security and reliability risks." "This book not only systematically identifies 120 potential threats to voting technology, but it offers specific remedies and counter-measures that election officials can employ to make these attacks more difficult to perform. This is an eye-opening account not only of the hazards of electronic voting in the 21st century, but a level-headed approach for dealing with real and potential threats to democratic elections." "An additional section of this book, authored by the Brennan Center and entitled "Cast Out," deals with voter repression. It enumerates the many ways voters are deprived of their electoral rights by those who are determined to use the reforms of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) as "an opportunity to restrict rather than enhance the franchise." An examination of these techniques reveals how manipulation of our electoral system can actually disenfranchise more Americans than any of the mechanical voting machine failures we see on Election Day.

What caused the crime decline? by Oliver Roeder( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...examines one of the nation's least understood recent phenomena -- the dramatic decline in crime nationwide over the past two decades -- and analyzes various theories for why it occurred, by reviewing more than 40 years of data from all 50 states and the 50 largest cities. It concludes that over-harsh criminal justice policies, particularly increased incarceration, which rose even more dramatically over the same period, were not the main drivers of the crime decline. In fact, the report finds that increased incarceration has been declining in its effectiveness as a crime control tactic for more than 30 years. Its effect on crime rates since 1990 has been limited, and has been non-existent since 2000. More important were various social, economic, and environmental factors, such as growth in income and an aging population. The introduction of CompStat, a data-driven policing technique, also played a significant role in reducing crime in cities that introduced it. The report concludes that considering the immense social, fiscal, and economic costs of mass incarceration, programs that improve economic opportunities, modernize policing practices, and expand treatment and rehabilitation programs, all could be a better public safety investment."--Website
