Global Energy Justice

Law and Policy

Author: Lakshman Guruswamy

Publisher: West Academic Publishing

ISBN: 9780314291615

Category: Energy policy

Page: 230

View: 1160

This groundbreaking text both explains and provides legal solutions to interlocking problems of global energy poverty, environmental degradation, and injustice. The first segment examines the jurisprudential lineages of justice and law within Western, Islamic, Buddhist and Confucian traditions, and argues that law can and should offer answers to global problems of energy and poverty. The second segment explores the facts pertaining to energy poverty among the "other third" of the world, consisting of 1.3 to 2.5 billion peoples. It explains how the lack of access to basic clean and affordable energy results in the premature deaths of millions, primarily among women and children, and afflicts millions more through sickness and ill-health. The third and fourth segments explore the importance of energy justice within the internationally-accepted foundational legal norm of sustainable development. Finally, the book explores national model laws and how they offer blueprints for promoting global energy justice.

Cases of Conflict

Transboundary Disputes and the Development of International Environmental Law

Cases of Conflict focuses on times of dispute as important moments in the development of international environmental law. Conflict tests international law--both its content and its relevance become clearer in times of controversy--but conflict can also help shape the law. Drawing from a growing body of scholarship connecting the fields of international relations and international law, Cases of Conflict examines six prominent case studies to demonstrate how transboundary disputes have influenced the development of international environmental law and policy. Embracing their rich detail and real-world messiness, this book looks to develop a better understanding of the true content and potential of international environmental law.

The Concise Edition is a stream-lined version for a four unit course. It omits note materials and cases and a few principal cases that are included in the longer version to under-score or elaborate upon the key principles in each unit. The Ninth Edition continues the approach of earlier editions in emphasizing rich, full-bodied versions of the principal cases, a functionalist approach to the problems of contract law, and analytical notes on such issues as the differences between classical and modern contract law and the role of the limits of cognition in contract law. The new edition includes a great number of new principal cases, including extensive coverage of pertinent materials in the new restatement of restitution and up to date materials on "rolling contracts."

This text, the only criminal law casebook authored by two progressive female law professors of color, provides the reader with both critical race and critical feminist theory perspectives on criminal law while following a traditional format. All of the usual subject areas are covered, but the book is unique in highlighting the cultural context of substantive criminal law. The book seamlessly integrates issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation so the teacher who wishes to address such issues does not have to assign supplemental reading assignments in order to do so. The book is also very student-friendly, providing a brief doctrinal overview of the subject matter at the beginning of each chapter. The book does away with the tradition of long lists of notes and questions following the cases, a trademark feature of many older casebooks, putting this material in the Teachers Manual for the teacher to use at his or her discretion. The forthcoming third edition is fresh and innovative, referencing several ripped from the headlines controversies, including the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman and Florida's stand your ground law, the arrest of African American Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. for disorderly conduct, the shooting of Larry King, a gender nonconforming teenager, by classmate Brandon McInerney and the gay panic defense, and the repeal of North Carolina's Racial Justice Act.

The majority of material is organized around the conceptually divisible components of our otherwise indivisible world order: "war/peace," "human rights/social justice," "economic trade/development," and "earth/space environment." The remainder, the "constitutive/organic" and the "miscellaneous," reflect the truism that no typology, no matter how well conceived, can ever fully comprehend the diversity of human affairs.
