McClainBoston Universityand Joanna L. GrossmanHofstra University, New YorkThis volume examines the persistinginequality between formal commitmentsto gender equality and equal citizenship– in the laws and constitutions of manycountries, as well as in internationalhuman rights documents – and thereality of women’s lives.‘This outstanding collection of essaysboth illuminates and complicates arange of gender justice problems inintimate and public arenas withinand across national boundaries. The‘citizenship’ of the title stands fordemocratic inclusion, and is animatedby an aspirational vision of ‘equalcitizenship’ for women and men.Yet the volume’s editors recognizethat the citizenship concept is itselffraught and double-edged, andmust be deployed self-critically.Gender Equality is comprised of aset of original essays by a range ofdistinguished scholars working atthe intersection of feminist legal andpolitical theory. The volume offersa rigorous overview of many of thepolitical and theoretical conundrumsfacing advocates of equal justice forwomen today.’Linda Bosniak, Rutgers University School of Law2012 228 x 152 mm 468pp978-0-521-74734-9 Paperback £25.99Also available978-0-521-76647-0 Hardback £78.00eBook availablewww.cambridge.org/9780521747349The Future ofAustralian FederalismComparative andInterdisciplinary PerspectivesEdited by Gabrielle ApplebyUniversity of AdelaideNicholas AroneyUniversity of Queenslandand Thomas JohnCommonwealth Attorney-General’s DepartmentThis important contribution to thetopic of federalism reform bringstogether eminent lawyers, economistsand political scientists from Australiaand overseas to explain, analyseand evaluate the operation of thecontemporary Australian federal systemand to canvass the prospects of anddifferent options for change.2012 228 x 152 mm 504pp9 b/w illus. 15 tables978-1-107-00637-9 Hardback £75.00eBook availablewww.cambridge.org/9781107006379Judges on TrialSecond editionShimon ShetreetHebrew University of Jerusalemand Sophie TurenneUniversity of CambridgeThe second edition of Judges on Trialexamines the modern meaning ofjudicial independence.
