From the former secretary of defense, a strikingly candid, vivid account of serving Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. When Robert M. Gates received a call from the White House, he thought he’d long left Washington politics behind: After working for six presidents in both the CIA and the National Security Council, he was happily serving as president of Texas A&M University. But when he was asked to help a nation mired in two wars and to aid the troops doing the fighting, he answered what he felt was the call of duty.

The question, 'Why should I obey the law?' introduces a contemporary puzzle that is as old as philosophy itself. The puzzle is especially troublesome if we think of cases in which breaking the law is not otherwise wrongful, and in which the chances of getting caught are negligible. Philosophers from Socrates to H.L.A. Hart have struggled to give reasoned support to the idea that we do have a general moral duty to obey the law but, more recently, the greater number of learned voices has expressed doubt that there is any such duty, at least as traditionally conceived. The thought that there is no such duty poses a challenge to our ordinary understanding of political authority and its legitimacy. In what sense can political officials have a right to rule us if there is no duty to obey the laws they lay down? Some thinkers, concluding that a general duty to obey the law cannot be defended, have gone so far as to embrace philosophical anarchism, the view that the state is necessarily illegitimate. Others argue that the duty to obey the law can be grounded on the idea of consent, or on fairness, or on other ideas, such as community.

Are Duty Drawbacks Worth the Hassle?

"Many countries use duty drawbacks on exports, yet they have been given little attention in the literature and there is no consensus whether countries should embrace or abandon them. Ianchovichina asserts that the answer depends on a country's development priorities and economic conditions. An increase in the drawback has a positive impact on export competitiveness and employment, but could lead to exports with low domestic value added. The welfare effects of duty drawback reform are ambiguous. An increase in the drawback is more likely to be welfare improving if the economy is small with high input tariffs, low initial drawback, low administrative costs, and leakages in the tariff collection system. In China duty drawback removal after meeting WTO commitments will deepen domestic supply chains and improve welfare, but will hurt China's economic efficiency, export competitiveness, and real factor incomes. Further liberalization could mitigate these negative effects. This paper--a product of the Economic Policy Division, Poverty Reduction and Economic Management Network--is part of a larger effort in the network to study growth and competitiveness"--World Bank web site.

Confidentiality has long been a cornerstone of the practice of medicine and psychiatry. In the past 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in the number and type of exceptions to confidentiality. Confidentiality Versus the Duty to Protect: Foreseeable Harm in the Practice of Psychiatry is designed to help psychiatrists and other psychotherapists deal with the problems created by exceptions to confidentiality. The mental health professionals must now have some knowledge of relevant law. Without such knowledge, the clinician carries the double burden of ignorance and anxiety. The wish to lighten that burden is the motive for this book. Written by clinicians, for clinicians, Confidentiality Versus the Duty to Protect: Foreseeable Harm in the Practice of Psychiatry presents a discussion of law as it relates to the clinical issues of confidentiality versus the duty to protect. This book is divided broadly into two sections. The first section includes a chapter on basic issues, an overview of the law, and chapters on applications of the law in specific clinical settings. This section addresses legal issues surrounding clinical practice in the office, in the emergency room, and in the hospital. In the second section, the chapter authors examine specific clinical situations in which confidentiality and duty to protect issues arise. Chapters focus on issues relating to children and families, sexual misconduct between patients and therapists, HIV-positive patients, patients with a dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance abuse, and two other problematic diagnoses: posttraumatic stress disorder and antisocial personality disorder. The book concludes with the presentation of a clinical case in which the patient poses a threat to the potential victim.

Kant, Duty and Moral Worth is a fascinating and original examination of Kant's account of moral worth. The complex debate at the heart of Kant's philosophy is over whether Kant said moral actions have worth only if they are carried out from duty, or whether actions carried out from mixed motives can be good. Philip Stratton-Lake offers a unique account of acting from duty, which utilizes the distinction between primary and secondary motives. He maintains that the moral law should not be understood as a normative moral reason but as playing a transcendental role. Thus a Kantian account of moral worth is one where the virtuous agent may be responsive to concrete particular considerations, whilst preserving an essential role for universal moral principles. Kant, Duty and Moral Worth is a lucid examination of Kant's moral thought that will appeal to Kant scholars and anyone interested in moral theory.

In 1865, Wild Bill Hickok killed Dave Tutt in a Missouri public square in the West’s first notable "walkdown." One hundred and twenty-nine years later, Bernard Goetz shot four threatening young men in a New York subway car. Apart from gunfire, what do the two events have in common? Goetz, writes Richard Maxwell Brown, was acquitted of wrongdoing in the spirit of a uniquely American view of self-defense, a view forged in frontier gunfights like Hickok’s. When faced with a deadly threat, we have the right to stand our ground and fight. We have no duty to retreat.
