Federalism: Reconciling National Values with States' Rights and Local Control in the 21st Century.
Ryan, John Paul, Ed.
Focus on Law Studies, v16 n1 Spr 2001
This publication examines ways to teach about law in the liberal arts. This issue features a dialogue among eight social science, humanities, policy, and legal scholars, in which they discuss a wide range of viewpoints on federalism. The conversation traverses historical perspectives on federal-state relations, changes in selected public policy areas within the past several decades, the roles of Congress and the Supreme Court in helping to shape federal-state relations, and prospects for new forms of cooperation in the coming decade. The dialogue is divided into seven parts: (1) "Federalism and States' Rights"; (2) "Federalism, Values, and Morality"; (3) "Federal-State Relationships: A View from Selected Policy Areas"; (4) "The Supreme Court and Federalism"; (5) "Why Do Federal-State Relations Vary Across Policy Areas?"; (6) "Local Government and Federalism"; and (7) "The Future of Federalism." Participants in the dialogue are the scholars Michael Belknap, Michael Greve, Jennie Kronenfeld, Kathryn McDermott, Robert Nagel, Paul Posner, Denise Scheberle, and Sanford Schram.
