A Defense of Supreme Court Expansion Stephen M. Feldman

Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court Hannah Brenner Johnson & Renee Knake Jefferson NEW YORK UNIVERSITY PRESS


Award-winning scholars Jefferson and Johnson ingeniously weave together long-forgo�en materials from presiden�al libraries and private archives to reveal the inspiring and untold history of the women considered—but not selected—for the US Supreme Court. A must-read for those seeking posi�ons of power and for the powerful who select them.

The US Supreme Court has numbered nine jus�ces for the past 150 years. But the Democrats, controlling the House and Senate during the Biden presidency, could increase this number. Stephen Feldman makes the provoca�ve argument that the Democrats should pack the Court while they have the opportunity. Excludes Asia Pacific

Deploying his profound understanding of the Social Security Administra�on and Disability law and policy, Jon C. Dubin demys�fies the system, revealing how changes in the labor market have rendered some agency processes obsolete. He argues that the disability system should be “mended, not ended.”

Law, Sex Work, and Desire in Johannesburg I. India Thusi

An authorita�ve and sweeping tour of gang scholarship, On Gangs showcases the cri�cal evidence-based solu�ons in preven�on, enforcement, legisla�on, and interven�on. The authors seek to answer the ques�on: How do we effec�vely deal with gangs and gang membership?

Sex work occupies a legally gray space in Johannesburg, and police a�tudes towards it are inconsistent and largely unregulated. I. India Thusi’s ethnography considers how sex work is policed and how it should be policed—and exposes the limita�ons of dominant feminist arguments regarding the legal treatment of sex work.
