As the number, size, and complexity of patent cases have grown throughout the United States over the past several decades -- paralleling expansion in the role of high technology enterprises in the U.S. economy -- the need for a comprehensive, user-friendly, and practical judicial guide for managing patent cases has become increasingly apparent. Recognizing this, the authors surveyed the range of approaches and perspectives on patent case management, fostered discussion and analysis of patent case management techniques, and developed this authoritative guide for judges, law clerks, practitioners, and patent and civil procedure professors and scholars. The Patent Case Management Judicial Guide is a collaborative effort between the Federal Judicial Center and the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology of the University of California - Berkeley School of Law.

Reconsidering Interpretation of Heritage Sites

Reconsidering Interpretation of Heritage Sites chronicles and problematizes the representation of the eighteenth century in museums and heritage sites while also challenging public historians to alter their perceptions of what might be possible when interpreting such sites. Much of the history consumed at eighteenth-century historic sites is one-dimensional, white, male, heteronormative, and very focused on power and wealth. Anne Lindsay argues that this narrative may be challenged through an engagement with the everyday life of the past, creating thought-provoking and challenging experiences that will connect with the modern visitor on a deeper level. Unlike other work that has been done in the field, the book provides a constructive study that engages in a horizontal analysis of a century over a geographic region. As a result, Lindsay provides a unique opportunity for scholars and practitioners to reflect on the types and tone of messages usually conveyed about the eighteenth century. Reconsidering Interpretation of Heritage Sites will be invaluable to scholars and practitioners working in the fields of museum and heritage studies and history. It will be particularly interesting to those who want to know more about how the lived experience of the past may be interpreted at historic sites, and how this could be used to engage with contentious histories.
