William T. Gallagher
This book brings together articles by leading international scholars from diverse disciplinary perspectives who focus on the legal, social and cultural dimensions of intellectual properties - including patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and rights of publicity. These articles employ a creatively eclectic approach to the study of intellectual property law and policy viewed through the lenses of traditional doctrinal analysis, historical perspectives, critical cultural study, and empirical examinations of intellectual property in action. The volume also directs critical attention to the significance of intellectual property in contemporary processes of globalization and political economy.
Rivertown: Rethinking Urban Rivers
Paul S. Kibel
Today's urban riverfronts are changing. The decline of river commerce and riverside industry has made riverfront land once used for warehouses, factories, and loading docks available for open space, parks, housing, and nonindustrial uses. Urban rivers, which once functioned as open sewers for cities, are now seen as part of larger watershed ecosystems. Rivertown examines urban river restoration efforts across the United States, presenting case studies from Los Angeles; Washington, D.C.; Portland, Oregon; Chicago; Salt Lake City; and San Jose. It also analyzes the roles of the federal government (in particular, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) and citizen activism in urban river politics. A postscript places New Orleans's experience with Hurricane Katrina in the broader context of the national riverside land-use debate.

The Earth on Trial: Environmental Law on the International Stage
Paul S. Kibel
The Earth on Trial examines the degree to which the law has accommodated an increased understanding of the natural environment. Paul Stanton Kibel provides a clear assessment of what conceptual and practical changes are needed to reconcile law to the limits of ecology. By moving the debate between law and the environment beyond specialists, and towards a public forum, The Earth on Trial acknowledges that a healthy environmental future depends not so much on our ability to alter nature to accommodate society, as our ability to alter society to accommodate nature.

Uproar at Dancing Rabbit Creek: Battling Over Race, Class, and the Environment
"In late 1990, Ed Netherland - a renegade Tennessee entrepreneur driven both by financial gain and his own battle with cancer - actively sought the endorsement of Noxubee County, Mississippi, for his company's toxic-waste disposal facility. He was armed with cash and promises of new jobs, but he met unexpected opposition: Martha Blackwell, a white housewife and descendant of the planter class, helped to organize a movement to stop the dump. However, Netherland also made unlikely allies: poor blacks and poor whites, who united to push for new jobs and the opportunity to wrest political and economic power from the landed families. Their effort was led and personified by the self-styled savior of Noxubee's black majority, Ike Brown. The ensuing battle tore the county apart, pitting families, friends, and even entire church congregations against one another, unleashing century-old hatreds and blood feuds." "At the heart of the story lies control over the land, an issue William Faulkner saw as the "curse" of Southern history (Dancing Rabbit Creek was the site of an 1830 federal treaty with the Choctaw Indians, leading to their forced exodus). Only the characters are new: with Blackwell, Brown, and Netherland, there is Prentiss "Printz" Bolin, the former Chief of Staff to U.S. Senator Trent Lott, who returned home to Noxubee County as local salesman of a waste dump proposed by Netherland's competitors; Ralph Higginbotham, the white president of the county Board of Supervisors, who was supported by blacks but derided by prosperous whites as a "hillbilly"; Essie Spencer, a retired school teacher and leading black opponent of the toxic dump; and a host of other vividly drawn characters."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
