Constitutional Law

Author: Jesse H. Choper
Publisher: West Academic
ISBN: 0314904689
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Law

This long-popular constitutional law casebook has been thoroughly revised and updated. The Notes and Questions, which have long been a hallmark of the book, present a wide range of perspectives for students to consider, rather than reflecting a single point of view that users of the book must either adopt or teach against. Professors will especially like the illuminating and provocative extracts from the literature that accompany the recent "right to bear arms," "war on terror," and "corporate political campaign expenditure" cases. Chapters on the Dormant Commerce Clause and State Action have been significantly reorganized; and the Equal Protection sections on school integration and affirmative action have been enlarged to account for Parents Involved v. Seattle School District. The authors have significantly tightened the material on abortion, procedural due process, and takings.

Stumbling on Happiness

Release Date: 2006-05-02
Genre: Psychology

Bringing to life scientific research in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, philosophy, and behavioral economics, this bestselling book reveals what scientists have discovered about the uniquely human ability to imagine the future, and about our capacity to predict how much we will like it when we get there. • Why are lovers quicker to forgive their partners for infidelity than for leaving dirty dishes in the sink? • Why will sighted people pay more to avoid going blind than blind people will pay to regain their sight? • Why do dining companions insist on ordering different meals instead of getting what they really want? • Why do pigeons seem to have such excellent aim; why can’t we remember one song while listening to another; and why does the line at the grocery store always slow down the moment we join it? In this brilliant, witty, and accessible book, renowned Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert describes the foibles of imagination and illusions of foresight that cause each of us to misconceive our tomorrows and misestimate our satisfactions. With penetrating insight and sparkling prose, Gilbert explains why we seem to know so little about the hearts and minds of the people we are about to become. From the Trade Paperback edition.
