“Research Handbook on the Economics of Antitrust Law” (Edward Elgar), edited by Professor Einer Elhauge ’86.

Professor Mary Ann Glendon presided over the 17th Plenary Session of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences at the Vatican and is the editor of “Universal Rights in a World of Diversity: The Case of Religious Freedom” with Hans Friedrich Zacher. Glendon, who contributed the introduction and conclusion, writes that the theme was chosen because religious freedom is emblematic of both the aspirations and the dilemmas of the idea of universal human rights, and goes to the very heart of what it means to be human.

Professor John C.P. Goldberg has written “Open Book: Succeeding on Exams from the First Day of Law School” with Barry Friedman (Aspen Publishers, 2011). “In my experience, even smart, hardworking law students often underperform because they don’t fully grasp what’s expected of them,” says Goldberg. “The motivation behind the book is to help students see why law school exams look the way they do, and to explain what this means for how they should learn and prepare.”

“After Sex? On Writing Since Queer Theory” (Duke), edited by Professor Janet Halley and Andrew Parker. Contributors to the development of queer studies offer personal reflections on the potential and limitations of the field, asking to what extent it is defined by a focus on sex and sexuality.

Professor Lawrence Lessig’s new e-book, “One Way Forward” (Byliner), is a call to action for Americans of all political persuasions to work to remove the corrupting influence of money from the federal government.

In “Intellectual Property Strategy” (MIT), Professor John Palfrey ’01 encourages leaders of businesses and nonprofit organizations to adopt IP policies that go beyond the traditional restrictive “sword and shield” approach and instead focus on flexibility and creativity.

Professor William Rubenstein ’86 is the primary author of “Newberg on Class Actions” (Trial Practice Series), with Alba Conte and Herbert B. Newberg. The fifth edition of this treatise focuses on the benefits of the class action, particularly in achieving judicial economy and in providing court access to small claimants who would otherwise be without judicial remedy.
