The Convervatism of Antonin Scalia
Richard A. Brisbin, JR. explores the political values of Justice Antonin Scalia of the Supreme Court.

Democracy, Dependency, and Destabilization: The Shaking of Allende's Regime
Gil Merom critically discusses contemporary approaches to the study of sanction and destabilization policies, using Chile as a primary example.

Social Policy through Land Reform: New Jersey's Mount Laurel Controversy
Mark Alan Hughes and Peter M. Vandoren examine the New Jersey Supreme Court's Mount Laurel decisions, which prohibited that township from excluding low-income housing through zoning ordinances. They question several premises of the strategy to defeat exclusionary zoning, supporting instead agreements negotiated between municipalities where one pays the other to provide up to half of its low-cost housing obligations.
