New Books From the Faculty

It’s been a productive year for the Hastings faculty. Below are a few of the books recently published by Hastings faculty members. Order/pre-order your copies today!
Constitutional Fictions: A Unified Theory of Constitutional Facts by David Faigman (“The first book-length examination of the role of fact-finding in constitutional cases.”)
The Role of Science in Law by Robin Feldman (“A tour de force that explores the rigors of science through the lens of law.”)
Privilege or Punish: Criminal Justice and the Challenge of Family Ties by Ethan Leib, Dan Markel, and Jennifer Collins (“This boldly original book takes on the astonishingly under-examined subject of the explicit and conscious connections drawn between our criminal law institutions and the family.”)
Plunder: When the Rule of Law is Illegal by Ugo Mattei and Laura Nader (“Mattei and Nader have produced a courageous, intellectually refined, and superbly critical book about one of the main instruments of society-building in our culture.”)
Unlikely Allies: How a Merchant, a Playwright, and a Spy Saved the American Revolution by Joel Paul (“An engaging and entertaining account of three of the most colorful characters involved in the American Revolution. It is hard to believe that their story is true, but it is.”)
