Federal judges are not just robots or politicians in robes, yet their behavior is not well understood, even among themselves.

Solution to the Country’s Weighty Problems: The Body Mass Index Reduction Program, (BMIRP) is a tongue in cheek book with hilarious illustrations suggesting the enactment of a federally mandated weight -reduction program to address the obesity epidemic in the U.S. The author presented in 2012 components of the program which have since been implemented by various governmental agencies and airlines, including charging fees based upon weight and Body Mass .and restrictions on access to facilities to those with excessive Body Mass He brings to the forefront problems, such as: debt and budget crisis, threatening national bankruptcy; trade deficit; reliance upon foreign oil, and its economic and national security threats; global warming, environmental pollution, energy conservation; out of control health care costs and declining health; corpulence and enhanced weight epidemic; and deteriorating national infrastructure. For less than the cost of a trip to the Golden Corral or other comparable “all- you- can- eat” buffet restaurant, or the cost of a “Big Mac” or “Whopper” with fries, the reader is exposed to a pragmatic, innovative, comprehensive, non-political, non-idealogical program to address the nation’s monumental problems.

Chinese Immigrants and the Shaping of Modern Immigration Law

Focusing primarily on the exclusion of the Chinese, Lucy Salyer analyzes the popular and legal debates surrounding immigration law and its enforcement during the height of nativist sentiment in the early twentieth century. She argues that the struggles between Chinese immigrants, U.S. government officials, and the lower federal courts that took place around the turn of the century established fundamental principles that continue to dominate immigration law today and make it unique among branches of American law. By establishing the centrality of the Chinese to immigration policy, Salyer also integrates the history of Asian immigrants on the West Coast with that of European immigrants in the East. Salyer demonstrates that Chinese immigrants and Chinese Americans mounted sophisticated and often-successful legal challenges to the enforcement of exclusionary immigration policies. Ironically, their persistent litigation contributed to the development of legal doctrines that gave the Bureau of Immigration increasing power to counteract resistance. Indeed, by 1924, immigration law had begun to diverge from constitutional norms, and the Bureau of Immigration had emerged as an exceptionally powerful organization, free from many of the constraints imposed upon other government agencies.

Despite the dire forecasts of others who had themselves edited books, we proceeded with the project of an edited volume on the American prison, although with more than a little trepidation. We had heard the horror stories of authors turning in their chapters months or years late or never at all, of publishers delaying publication dates, of volumes that read more like patchwork quilts than finely loomed cloth. As if to prove the others wrong, our experience in editing this volume has been mar velous, and we think the volume reflects this. Most likely, the success of our experience and of the volume stems from two elements: first, the professionalism and commitment of the authors themselves; and second, the fact that early in the life of this volume, most of the authors convened for a conference to critique and coordinate the chapters. This book brings together an illustrious group of criminologists and correctional scholars who wrote chapters explicitly for this volume. Co hesiveness was furthered by the charge we gave to each author to (1) present the major issues, (2) review the empirical research, and (3) dis cuss the implications of this work for present and future correctional policy. The goal of this project was to examine the major correctional issues facing prison systems. The chapters scrutinize the issues from the perspective of the system and the individual, from theory to practical and daily management problems, from legal to psychological concerns.
