    Belonging to the World: Women's Rights and American Constitutional Culture surveys the treatment of women in American law from the nation's earliest beginnings in British North America to the present. Placing the legal history of women in the broader social, political, and economic context of American history, this book examines the evolution of women's constitutional status in the United States, the development of rights consciousness among women, and their attempts to expand zones of freedom for all women. This is the first general account of women and American constitutional history to include the voices of women alongside the more familiar voices of lawmakers. An original work of historical synthesis, it delineates the shifting relationships between American law practice and women, both within the family and elsewhere, as it looks beyond the campaign for woman suffrage to broader areas of contest and controversy. Women's stories are used throughout the book to illustrate the extraordinary range and persistence of female rebellion from the 1630s up through the present era of "post-feminist" retrenchment and backlash. Belonging to the World: Women's Rights and American Constitutional Culture dispels the myth that the story of women and the law is synonymous only with woman suffrage or married women's property acts, showing instead that American women have struggled along many fronts, not only to regain and expand their rights as sovereign citizens, but also to remake American culture.
  • The 'Double Indemnity' Murder: Ruth Snyder, Judd Gray, and New York's Crime of the Century

    By Landis MacKellar

    Investigation documents and photographs related to the 1927 murder of Albert Snyder by his wife Ruth and her lover Judd Gray have been mostly destroyed because of their antiquity. Mackeller offers his telling of the ordeal, as gleaned from trial transcripts, periodicals, interviews, city records, letters, a detective log, and earlier books on the topic. The murder inspired the book-turned-noir film titled Double Indemnity, and was later interpreted in the film Body Heat. This book reads like a novel and employs artistic license in fleshing out the moments that were not logged, as in the first chapter describing the crime, where dialogue of unclear source is abundant. The second chapter details the trial, wherein the two accused invent indictments of the other. This chapter also portrays the popular and media frenzy that accompanied the trial. The two were eventually sentenced to be executed at Sing Sing prison, and the final chapter describes their last days and the public's response. The appendix offers brief biographies of personalities in the book and discusses questions of motive that may remain unanswered. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    "A breach of fair and equitable treatment is alleged in almost every investor-state dispute. It has therefore become a controversial norm, which touches many questions at the heart of general international law. Roland Klager sheds light on these controversies by exploring the deeper doctrinal foundations of fair and equitable treatment and reviewing its contentious relationship with the international minimum standard. The norm is also discussed in light of the fragmentation of international law, theoriesof international justice and rational balancing, and the idea of constitutionalism in international law. In this vein, a shift in the way of addressing fair and equitable treatment is proposed by focusing on the process of justificatory reasoning"--

    "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," President Barack Obama said in March 2012 about the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin four weeks earlier. In so saying, Obama gave the White House imprimatur to a politically irresistible campaign, one that both stoked the grievances of his racially sensitive base and energized his party's gun-control advocates. That the shooting took place in Florida, the most highly contested state in that year's presidential election, made its politicization all the more inevitable. From the beginning, the major media worked overtime to convict shooter George Zimmerman in the court of public opinion. To promote their grudge against guns and their skewed view of race in America, the media ignored or denied the truth even after the truth had become obvious to those who followed the story closely. In another time and place, the media might have succeeded, but in the age of social media, their carefully crafted narrative has been thoroughly picked apart. If I Had A Son tells the story of a blogging collective called the Conservative Treehouse that has done much of the picking. Indeed, the clever research work of these unpaid "Treepers," most of them female, may well be the defense's best weapon. If I Had A Son is a thrill-packed David and Goliath story, the ending of which is still not known.
