New on the shelves – June 2013

Our list of new books is now updated.

cover_shipleyIn June, the Law Library received books on international law, trial practice, and same-sex marriage, among other topics. One of our new titles is Mrs. Shipley’s ghost : the right to travel and terrorist watchlists, by Jeffrey Kahn. From the review in the Chronicle of Higher Education:

Ably navigating an alphabet soup of agencies and watchlists, Kahn draws on interviews with a feisty set of officials, including Timothy Healy, until this spring the head of the TSC, and Michael Jackson, formerly deputy secretary at the Department of Homeland Security. “Ask yourself a prudential question,” Jackson urges. “Would you rather those people have the authority to err on the side of caution?”1

The Law Library’s collection is constantly growing as we purchase books and other resources to support the scholarly and clinical work of faculty and students.  Please let us know if you have a suggestion for a new book.
