Profiles, Probabilities, and Stereotypes by Frederick Schauer
Book DescriptionThis book employs a careful, rigorous, yet lively approach to the timely question of whether we can justly generalise about members of a group on the basis of statistical tendencies of that group. For instance, should a military academy exclude women because, on average, women are more sensitive to hazing than men? Should airlines force all pilots to retire at age sixty, even though most pilots at that age have excellent vision? Can all pit bulls be banned because of the aggressive characteristics of the breed? And, most controversially, should government and law enforcement use racial and ethnic profiling as a tool to fight crime and terrorism?

Force of Law, Hardback (February 2015)
Many legal theorists maintain that laws are effective because we internalize them, obeying even when not compelled to do so. In a comprehensive reassessment of the role of force in law, Frederick Schauer disagrees, demonstrating that coercion, more than internalized thinking and behaving, distinguishes law from society's other rules.

Karl N Llewellyn was one of the founders and major figures of legal realism, and his many keen insights have a central place in American law and legal understanding. This book frames the development of Llewellyn's thinking and describes the difference between what rules literally prescribe and what is actually done.
