Judges and legal scholars talk past one another, if they have any conversation at all. Academics criticize judicial decisions in theoretical terms, which leads many judges to dismiss academic discourse as divorced from reality. Richard Posner reflects on the causes and consequences of this widening gap and what can be done to close it.

The central theme of the book is an explanation and reconciliation of two fundamental features of judging: the law leaves room for judicial choice but the law also imposes discipline on those choices.

Das Open Justice-Konzept ist weithin als Bestandteil der Rechtsstaatlichkeit anerkannt und ist für das Funktionieren demokratischer Gesellschaften unerlässlich. Grundlegend für die Norm ist die Einbeziehung der Öffentlichkeit bei gerichtlichen Verfahren. Im Zeitalter der Informationstechnologie, digitaler Medien und der Transformation dessen, was als Öffentlichkeit definiert werden kann, stellt sich die Frage nach der Offenheit neu: Welche Rolle spielen Gerichte angesichts der zunehmenden Privatisierung von Rechtsprechung? Wie ist das Spannungsverhältnis von Offenheit und populistischer Bewegungen zu bewerten, die die Unabhängigkeit der Justiz zu untergraben drohen? Die Autorinnen und Autoren bieten neue Ansätze für Open Justice in Zeiten des Wandels.

A compelling study of a subtle and insidious form of racial inequality in American law and culture. Why does racial equality continue to elude African Americans even after the election of a black president? Liberals blame white racism while conservatives blame black behavior. Both define the race problem in socioeconomic terms, mainly citing jobs, education, and policing. Roy Brooks, a distinguished legal scholar, argues that the reality is more complex. He defines the race problem African Americans face today as a three-headed hydra involving socioeconomic, judicial, and cultural conditions. Focusing on law and culture, Brooks defines the problem largely as racial subordination--"the act of impeding racial progress in pursuit of nonracist interests." Racial subordination is little understood and underacknowledged, yet it produces devastating and even deadly racial consequences that affect both poor and socioeconomically successful African Americans. Brooks addresses a serious problem, in many ways more dangerous than overt racism, and offers a well-reasoned solution that draws upon the strongest virtues America has exhibited to the world.

Washington's failure to foresee the collapse of its superpower rival ranks high in the pantheon of predictive failures. The question of who got it right or wrong has been intertwined with the deeper issue of who won the Cold War. Like the disputes over who lost China and Iran, this debate has been fought out along ideological and partisan lines, with conservatives claiming credit for the Evil Empire's demise and liberals arguing that the causes were internal to the Soviet Union. The intelligence community has come in for harsh criticism for overestimating Soviet strength and overlooking the symptoms of crisis; the discipline of Sovietology has dissolved into acrimonious irrelevance. Drawing on declassified documents, interviews, and careful analysis of contemporary literature, this book offers the first systematic analysis of this predictive failure at the paradigmatic, foreign policy, and intelligence levels. Although it is focused on the Soviet case, it offers lessons that are both timely and necessary.
