Lawyers And The Rise Of Western Political Liberalism

by Terence Charles Halliday, Lawyers And The Rise Of Western Political Liberalism Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Lawyers And The Rise Of Western Political Liberalism books, In contrast to other theories of legal professions, which neglect politics, this volume advances a political theory of lawyers' collective action by demonstrating lawyers' influence on the emergence and development of western political liberalism. Four sociologists and four historians show how lawyers, over several centuries, have been variously committed to the building of liberal political society in France, Germany, Great Britain, and the United States.The introductory chapters, written by the editors, present a theoretical argument that integrates the historical and comparative studies of lawyers' engagement in three areas of liberal politics: the constitution of the moderate state, the institutions of civil society, and the constitution of individual rights. The editors conclude the book with an essay on lawyers' historical involvements in political globalization.This fresh interpretation not only demonstrates the variety of relationships between lawyers and politics, but it delineates issues, concepts, and a theory that helps understand the current action of lawyers in new democracies.

Crossing Boundaries

by Austin Sarat, Crossing Boundaries Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Crossing Boundaries books, Perhaps no idea is more emblematic of the field of law and society than crossing boundaries. From the founding of the Law and Society Association in the early 1960s, participating scholars aspired to create a field that crossed boundaries in at least two senses: by undertaking research that questioned and often bridged traditional methodological and disciplinary divisions, and by using nontraditional approaches to explore the interconnections between law and its social context. These essays reflect both aspirations.

Taxes Organizational Form And The Deadweight Loss Of The Corporate Income Tax

by Austan Goolsbee, Taxes Organizational Form And The Deadweight Loss Of The Corporate Income Tax Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Taxes Organizational Form And The Deadweight Loss Of The Corporate Income Tax books, Abstract: By changing the relative gain to incorporation, corporate taxation can play an important role in a firm's choice of organizational form. General equilibrium models have shown that substantial shifting of organizational form in response to tax rates implies a large deadweight loss of taxation. This paper estimates the impact of taxes on organizational form using data from 1900-1939. The results indicate that the effect of taxes is significant but small. A corporate rate increase of .10 raises the non-corporate share of capital .002-.03. The implied deadweight loss of the corporate income tax is around 5-10% of revenue.

The Impact Of Race On Policing Arrest Patterns And Crime

by John J. Donohue, The Impact Of Race On Policing Arrest Patterns And Crime Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Impact Of Race On Policing Arrest Patterns And Crime books, Abstract: Race has long been recognized as playing a critical role in policing. In spite of this awareness, there has been virtually no previous research attempting to quantitatively analyze the issue. In this paper, we examine the relationship between the racial composition of a city's police force and the racial patterns of arrests and crime. Increases in the number of minority police are associated with significant increases in arrests of whites, but have little impact on arrests of non-whites. Similarly arrests of non-whites, but do not systematically affect the number of white arrests. The race of police officers has a less clear-cut impact on crime rates. It appears that own-race policing may be more effective in reducing property crime, but no systematic differences are observed for violent crime. These results are consistent either with own-race policing leading to fewer false arrests or greater deterrence. In either case, own-race policing appears more "efficient" in fighting property crime.
