Unwanted Sex by Stephen J. Schulhofer

Book Description

Despite three decades of intense scrutiny and repeated attempts at ambitious reform, American laws against rape and sexual harrassment still fail to protect women from sexual over-reaching and abuse. In this work, Stephen Schulhofer shows the need to refocus laws against rape and to create a new system of legal safeguards against interference with sexual autonomy. With vivid examples, including stranger assaults, date rapes, and sexual encounters between job supervisors and subordinates, teachers and students, doctors and patients, and lawyers and clients, Schulhofer argues that reforms of rape and sexual harassment law are over-rated and inadequate. From the excessive degree of force necessary for an aggressive action to be defined as rape, to the gray areas in which coercion and exploitation can be used to elicit a false but legally valid "consent", Schulhofer offers a clear analysis of the limits of current standards. His proposals for a radically different approach hold the promise of genuine respect and effective protection for the sexual autonomy of both men and women.

Rethinking the Patriot Act by Stephen J. Schulhofer Rethinking the Patriot Act, Paperback (June 2005)

Schulhofer explains the act's most important provisions and reviews the best information currently available to gauge their usefulness and their effects in practice. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Schulhofer argues that much of the Patriot Act was essential, and some of it, if not essential, was reasonably defensible.
