Although scholars in the disciplines of law, psychology, philosophy, and sociology have published a considerable number of prescriptive, normative, and theoretical studies of animals in society, Pet Politics presents the first study of the development of companion animal or pet law and policy in Canada and the United States by political scientists. The authors examine how people and governments classify three species of pets or companion animals-cats, dogs, and horses-for various degrees of legal protection. They then detail how interest groups shape the agenda for companion animal legislation and regulation, and the legislative and administrative formulation of anticruelty, kennel licensing, horse slaughter, feral and roaming cat, and breed ban policies. Finally, they examine the enforcement of these laws and policies by agencies and the courts. Using an eclectic mix of original empirical data, original case studies, and interviews-and relying on general theories and research about the policy process and the sociopolitical function of legality-the authors illustrate that pet policy is a unique field of political struggle, a conflict that originates from differing perspectives about whether pets are property or autonomous beings, and clashing norms about the care of animals. The result of the political struggle, the authors argue, is difficulty in the enactment of policies and especially in the implementation and enforcement of laws that might improve the welfare of companion animals.

A Strike Like No Other Strike - Law and Resistance During the Pittston Coal Strike of 1989-1990 (Paperback): Richard A. Brisbin A Strike Like No Other Strike - Law and Resistance During the Pittston Coal Strike of 1989-1990 (Paperback)

The miners' strike against Pittston Coal in 1989-1990, which spread throughout southwestern Virginia, southern West Virginia, and eastern Kentucky, was one of the most important strikes in the history of American labor, and, as Richard Brisbin observes, ""one of the longest and largest incidents of civil disorder and civil disobedience in the United States in the second half of the twentieth century."" The company aggressively sought to break the strike, and workers and their families used a variety of tactics - lawful and unlawful - to resist Pittston's efforts as the situation quickly turned ugly. In A Strike like No Other Strike: Law and Resistance during the Pittston Coal Strike of 1989-1990, Richard Brisbin offers a compelling study of the exercise of political power. In considering the legal significance of the strike, Brisbin asks the larger question of whether even extreme transgression or resistance can fracture the ""imagined coherence of the law."" He shows how each party in the strike invoked the law to justify its actions while attacking those of the other side as unlawful. In the end, both sides lost; although the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately ruled in favor of the union, most of the strikers faced elimination of their jobs and an ongoing struggle for pensions and health benefits.

"West Virginia Politics and Government" offers the only recent study of politics in the Mountain State. Combining new empirical information about political behavior with a close examination of the capacity of the state's government, this second edition is a comprehensive and pointed study of the ability of the state's government to respond to the needs of a largely rural and relatively low-income population. The authors discuss public demands on state government, the shaping of the political agenda by interest groups, elections and the role of political parties, and the influence of the federal government on the state's political and administrative functions. The book also examines the nature of the state's constitution and the role of governmental institutions, including the state legislature, the governor, and the state bureaucracy, in the making of public policy and the construction of a state budget, as well as the judiciary and local governments. The concluding chapter assesses the future of governance in the state.

Justice Antonin Scalia and the Conservative Revival (Paperback, New edition): Richard A. Brisbin Justice Antonin Scalia and the Conservative Revival (Paperback, New edition)

As the leading legal voice of the American conservative movement, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has challenged the assumptions and legal methodology of American liberals. In this thorough and exacting study of the development of Justice Scalia's legal principles, political scientist Richard Brisbin explores the foundation and elaboration of the justice's conservative political vision. Scalia's jurisprudence, Brisbin contends, values order and stability over pragmatism and experiment, relying on a majoritarian view rather than on any nucleus of founding principles embedded in the American constitution. After reviewing Scalia's legal experiences before joining the Supreme Court and describing the influences on his political and legal thought, Brisbin undertakes a detailed analysis of Scalia's Supreme Court voting record and opinions. The conservative philosophy emerging from Scalia's legal decisions, Brisbin argues, assumes the legitimacy and propriety of political regimes functioning under the rule of law. It disciplines - sometimes harshly - inappropriate uses of liberty and accepts the proposition that the law can serve as an effective means to structure, interpret, and control political conflicts. Brisbin concludes that the language of Scalia's legal opinions reinforces a politics of inequality.

Real Law Stories: Real Law Stories - Inside the American Judicial Process (Paperback): Richard A. Brisbin, John C. Kilwein Real Law Stories: Real Law Stories - Inside the American Judicial Process (Paperback)
Richard A. Brisbin, John C. Kilwein
R920 Discovery Miles 9 200 Out of stock

An ideal supplement to texts on judicial processes, Real Law Stories: Inside the American Judicial Process is the only undergraduate text dedicated to the presentation of "real-world" interviews with lawyers, judges, and police officers. Each law professional describes his or her job across a range of legal activities and offers insights into the legal process in the United States.
Rather than focusing on exceptional or famous cases, authors Richard A. Brisbin Jr., and John C. Kilwein examine the routine, day-to-day functions of lawyers, courts, and the law in personal injury, divorce, employment relations, real estate, and commercial practice; criminal justice; and the appellate process. This "real-world" approach helps students to grasp how law operates in the everyday world while encouraging them to look beyond the mass media's negative portrayals of lawyers, police, and litigants.
In order to teach students how to conduct interviews, the authors provide succinct explanations of the judicial process, define legal terms, and provide references for further study.
