VC Author Books

With the holidays approaching, I thought I’d provide a friendly reminder that books by Volokh Conspiracy bloggers make great presents for that special legal theory nerd/historian/law student/libertarian/law geek/Second Amendment enthusiast/educated lay reader/etc. on your list. It’s also a nice way of showing appreciation for our bloggers.

And some links for your convenience:

Adler, ed., Rebuilding the Ark: New Perspectives on Endangered Species Act Reform

Baker, Skating on Stilts: Why We Aren’t Stopping Tomorrow’s Terrorism

Barnett, Restoring the Lost Constitution: The Presumption of Liberty

Bernstein, Rehabilitating Lochner: Defending Individual Rights Against Progressive Reform [In preparing this post I noticed that for no apparent reason Amazon has suddenly and drastically reduced the price of Rehabilitating Lochner from $35+ to $23, by far the lowest price I’ve seen for it. I don’t know how long this will last, but if you’ve been thinking of buying the book, now is a good time!]

Carpenter, Flagrant Conduct: The Story of Lawrence v. Texas (pre-order)

Kopel, Aiming for Liberty: The Past, Present, And Future of Freedom and Self-Defense

Post, In Search of Jefferson’s Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace

Volokh, Academic Legal Writing: Law Review Articles, Student Notes, Seminar Papers, and Getting on Law Review

UPDATE: Note that I didn’t include casebooks, treatises, and hornbooks in this list, because, e.g., who really wants to get Bernstein et al., The New Wigmore: Expert and Scientific Evidence for Christmas?
