Authors’ Circle: NYU 法律 faculty books of 2021


人权, the changing labor market, 隐私, securities regulation, 而且 Shakespeare are just a few examples of the wide-ranging topics that NYU 法律 faculty members addressed in books they recently authored or edited. 

One title had its origin in the 法律 School’s Derrick Bell Lecture series. Another is a collection of essays in honor of John Norton Pomeroy Professor of 法律 菲利普·阿尔斯通—the second book published this year in order to recognize the work of an NYU 法律 faculty member. (10月 埃莉诺·米. Fox: Antitrust Ambassador to the World was published in honor of Walter J. Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation 埃莉诺·福克斯 ’61.) And two of the casebooks below bypassed the traditional publishing industry 而且 are available for download at no cost under a Creative Commons license; not surprisingly, they are authored by members of NYU 法律’s intellectual property faculty.

A roundup of the books that full-time faculty members published in 2021 is below. Book descriptions are excerpted from publishers’ websites.

General 和一个cademic Titles

Race, Rights, 而且 Redemption book cover

Janet Dewart Bell 而且 文森特·米. Southerl而且 eds., Race, Rights, 而且 Redemption: The Derrick Bell Lectures on the 法律 而且 Critical Race Theory (新媒体)

“When Derrick Bell, one of the originators of critical race theory, 六十五岁了, his wife founded a lecture series with leading scholars, including critical race theorists, many of them Bell’s former students. [Collecting 25 years of these lectures], Race, Rights, 而且 Redemption . . . gathers some of our country’s brightest progressive legal stars in a volume that illuminates facets of the law that have continued to perpetuate racial inequality 而且 to confound our nation at the start of a new millennium.”

The Struggle for Human Rights: Essays in Honour of 菲利普·阿尔斯通 book cover

Nehal Bhuta, Florian Hoffmann, Sarah Knuckey, Frédéric Mégret 而且 Margaret Satterthwaite eds., The Struggle for Human Rights: Essays in Honour of 菲利普·阿尔斯通 (Oxford University Press) 

The Struggle for Human Rights evaluates the themes of law, 政治, 而且 practice which together define international human rights practice 而且 scholarship. Taking as its inspiration the 40-year career of international human rights advocate 菲利普·阿尔斯通, this book of essays examines foundational debates central to the evolution of the human rights project. It critiques the reform of human rights institutions 而且 reflects on the place of human rights practice in contemporary society. Bringing together leading scholars, 从业人员, 而且 critics of human rights from a variety of disciplines, [the book] addresses the most urgent questions posed within the field of human rights today—its practice 而且 its theory.”

Reframing Human Rights in a Turbulent Era book cover

Gráinne de Búrca, Reframing Human Rights in a Turbulent Era (Oxford University Press) 

近年来, human rights have come under fire, with the rise of political illiberalism 而且 the coming to power of populist authoritarian leaders in many parts of the world who contest 而且 dismiss the idea of human rights. 更令人吃惊的是, scholars 而且 public intellectuals, from both the progressive 而且 the conservative side of the political spectrum, have also been deeply critical, dismissing human rights as flawed, 不充分的, 霸权, 或过度延伸. While acknowledging some of the shortcomings, this book presents an experimentalist account of international human rights law 而且 practice 而且 argues that the human rights movement remains a powerful 而且 appealing one with widespread traction in many parts of the globe.” 

Strengthening Human Rights Protections in Geneva, Israel, the West Bank 而且 Beyond book cover

约瑟夫E. David, Yaël Ronen, Yuval Shany 而且 J.H.H. 维勒 eds., Strengthening Human Rights Protections in Geneva, Israel, the West Bank 而且 Beyond, (Cambridge University Press) 

“This collection of essays is written by some of the world's leading experts in international human rights law, 而且 corresponds to the main junctures in the professional life of Professor David Kretzmer, a leading human right academic 而且 practitioner. The different essays focus on contemporary human rights protection challenges.集体……, the essays offer a rich picture of the current potential shortcomings of international human rights law in addressing complex problems of law, 政治 而且 ethics.”

Automation Anxiety book cover

辛西娅Estlund, Automation Anxiety: Why 而且 How to Save Work (Oxford University Press) 

“This book confronts the hotly-debated prospect of mounting job losses due to automation, 而且 the widely-divergent hopes 而且 fears that prospect evokes, 而且 proposes a strategy for both mitigating the losses 而且 spreading the gains from shrinking dem而且 for human labor. We should set our collective sights, 它认为, on ensuring access to adequate incomes, 更多的自由时间, 而且 decent remunerative work even in a future with less of it. Getting there will require not a single “magic bullet” solution like universal basic income or a federal job guarantee but a multi-pronged program centered on conserving, 创建, 以及传播工作.”

Autonomous Versus Domestic Concepts Under the New York Convention

佛朗哥法拉利 而且 Friedrich Rosenfeld eds., Autonomous Versus Domestic Concepts Under the New York Convention (Wolters Kluwer) 

“[This] is a unique book that examines the New York Convention intending to identify the boundaries between autonomous 而且 domestic concepts. The 1958 New York Convention is universally acclaimed as one of the essential instruments of international commercial arbitration. Although the Convention ensures that contracting States cannot justify failure to comply with their treaty obligations by reference to domestic law, the courts of different contracting States apply the Convention differently.… A diverse group of distinguished scholars…have provided insightful contributions for this book which are sure to significantly add to arbitral practice 而且 jurisprudence in the Convention’s more than 160 contracting States.”

Holding a Mirror up to Nature: Shame, Guilt, 而且 Violence in Shakespeare book cover

詹姆斯·吉利根和 大卫.J. 理查兹, Holding a Mirror up to Nature: Shame, Guilt, 而且 Violence in Shakespeare (Cambridge University Press)

“Shakespeare has been dubbed the greatest psychologist of all time. This book seeks to prove that statement by comparing the playwright's fictional characters with real-life examples of violent individuals, from criminals to political actors. For Gilligan 而且 理查兹, the propensity to kill others, even (or especially) when it results in the killer's own death, is the most serious threat to the continued survival of humanity.… In this book the authors tell what Shakespeare shows, through the stories of his characters: what causes violence 而且 what prevents it.”

Governing Privacy in Knowledge Commons book cover

Madelyn Rose Sanfilippo, Brett M. Frischmann和 凯瑟琳·J. Str而且burg eds., Governing Privacy in Knowledge Commons, (Cambridge University Press)

“[This book] explores how 隐私 impacts knowledge production, community formation, 而且 collaborative governance in diverse contexts, ranging from academia 而且 IoT [the Internet of Things], to social media 而且 mental health. Using nine new case studies 而且 a meta-analysis of previous knowledge commons literature, the book integrates the Governing Knowledge Commons framework with Helen Nissenbaum's Contextual Integrity framework. The multidisciplinary case studies show that personal information is often a key component of the resources created by knowledge commons. 此外, even when it is not the focus of the commons, personal information governance may require community participation 而且 boundaries.”
