Critical Perspectives on Our Times
Two recent (and brief) Hofstra Law Review articles take up some of the challenges of our times -- inequality chief among them -- from a critical perspective and they are both worth reading:
- Mari Matsuda, The Flood: Political Economy and Disaster, 36 Hofstra L. Rev. 1 (2007)(though Katrina is used as a launching point, the article's aim is much broader).
- Richard Delgado, You Are Living In A Gold Rush, 35 Hofstra L. Rev. 417 (2006) (likening our new gilded age to earlier gold rush experiences and offering some hope that current excesses have an end point).
BLOG NOTE: I am in Turkey for three weeks, see http://wclturkeyezra.blogspot.com/ (with my photos), so my postings may be even less regular than their already irregular schedule. If anyone is interested in being a contributing blog editor or just submitting the random post, please let me know.
