PUBLICATIONS IN LAW AND THE HUMANITIES                                                                                 PE03257A.gif (4096 bytes)

Here are listed new publications in the area (including dissertations, master's thesis and bachelor's theses), or publications which have just recently come to my attention.  Items are listed in alphabetical order by author, or if a compilation, by title. Search for keywords by using the "search" function of your browser (normally the "find" or "find in page" command under "Edit" in the browser's drop-down menu). Hyperlinks are indicated in maroon. For dissertations, masters' theses, and undergraduate papers I give as much information as I have concerning the awarding institution, the date and (for the undergraduate papers) the course if any for which the paper was written. For monographs, I include publication information if I have it; otherwise publication information should be available through library catalogs and bookstores, since the source of much of it is the worldwide bibliographic utility OCLC, based in Dublin, Ohio. For additional materials in the area, you may find my book, An International Guide to Law and Literature Studies (Buffalo: W. S. Hein, 2000) helpful.  I blog items of interest at the Law and Humanities Blog and at the Seamless Web.
