New law e-books added to our collections

Posted in Ebooks, and Law

Over the last few weeks, our Research Librarians and Law Library team have purchased some new e-books to help researchers and students at The City Law School. Some of these titles are brand new; others are e-books requested through Read for Research. We hope some of these titles will be of interest to researchers within other Schools at City too.

Here is a selection of the new e-books added to CityLibrary Search:

Chris Ashford and Alexander Maine (eds), Research Handbook on Gender, Sexuality and the Law (Edward Elgar Publishing 2020). This edited collection covers a wide range of topics, including same sex relationships, LGBTI migration in Europe, transgender rights, gender and hate crime, and the healthcare rights of people living with HIV and AIDS, just to name a few of the important themes that this book discusses.

Sandra Mantu, Paul Minderhoud and Elspeth Guild (eds), EU Citizenship and Free Movement Rights: Taking Supranational Citizenship Seriously (Brill 2020). This edited work looks at EU citizenship from a variety of perspectives, for instance looking at the position of the family members of EU citizens; residence rights; welfare entitlements; and the status of EU citizens post Brexit.

Nicole Moreham and Sir Mark Warby (eds), Tugendhat and Christie: the Law of Privacy and the Media (3rd edn, OUP 2016). We have this title in our print collection already, but decided to purchase it in e-book format as well. This book is considered to be a key work on the law of privacy in England and Wales, and has sections on the publication of personal information; commercial rights and intrusion; and privacy, the internet and social media (to name just a few).

Richard Mullender and others (eds), Law and Imagination in Troubled Times: A Legal and Literary Discourse (Routledge 2020). This edited collection looks at legal change and the ‘legal imagination’. It will be of interest to anyone researching legal history, jurisprudence and judicial interpretation, or literature and the law.

Karen Smith Rotabi and Nicole F Bromfield, From Intercountry Adoption to Global Surrogacy: a Human Rights History and New Fertility Frontiers (Routledge 2017). This book not only looks at the history of intercountry adoption and global surrogacy, and the policy and human rights issues, but also contains empirical research in the form of a content analysis of blogs by US gestational surrogates and interviews with surrogates in India.

Mark Thomas and Lucy Cradduck, The Art of Mooting: Theories, Principles and Practice (Edward Elgar Publishing 2019). Whilst many books on mooting focus on the practical details of taking part in a moot, this monograph delves deeper into the theories behind the development of the necessary skills.

Read for Research – a review of 2019

Now that we are well into 2020, we thought it would be good to review our Read for Research acquisitions over the last calendar year and to share with you some of the themes we have spotted!

Our researchers at City suggested many new titles in 2019. Often the book suggestions are quite specific to individual research interests, but here are some the themes that came up:

We acquired the following books:
