“The Special Prosecutor in American Politics” By Katy J. Harriger (University Press of Kansas; 325 pages; $16.95) In this second, revised edition of her 1992 book, Professor Harriger of Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C., assesses the use of special prosecutors in the post-Watergate era in an attempt to determine whether the prosecutor was largely an unprincipled abuser of power, as some critics contend, or a staunch defender of the law. “Legal devices that attempt to limit politics may indeed interfere with the rule of law instead of promoting it. If nothing else, our twenty-year experience with the independent counsel teaches this.” “Advertising Law” By John W. Arden and James D. Arden (CCH Inc.; 245 pages; $85) The Y2K edition of CCH’s annual survey of advertising law focuses on such areas as consumer privacy, sweepstakes, telemarketing, and corrective advertising. In the words of the authors, “This annual book highlights the most significant developments of the year, discusses them in the context of the general state of the law, and suggests the future direction of the law.” As one might have guessed, the Internet was at the center of several controversies last year, including cybersquatting and attempts to regulate spam. “The Bill of Rights” By Akhil Reed Amar (Yale University Press; 412 pages; $17.95) If the Constitution is the principal text of our civic culture, then Yale’s Akhil Reed Amar wishes to serve as its Martin Luther. Amar’s scholarship in “The Bill of Rights,” the celebrated 1998 book now released in paperback, attempts to wrest authority for interpreting law away from the courts and to restore “We the People” as the true sovereign. Legal Times reviewer Frank H. Wu wrote in 1998 that Amar “has argued persuasively that all citizens within a democracy have the right to contribute to its constitutional discourse.”
