On March 2, 2010, the Secretary of Defense appointed the two editors to co-chair a working group to undertake a comprehensive review of the impacts of repeal, should it occur, of Section 654 of Title 10 of the U.S. Code, commonly known as the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law. Their assignment was two-fold: (1) assess the impact of repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell on military readiness, military effectiveness, unit cohesion, recruiting, retention, and family readiness; and (2) recommend appropriate changes, if necessary, to existing regulations, policies, and guidance in the event of repeal.

This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. A series of tax cuts were enacted early in the George W. Bush Admin. These tax cuts, known as the Bush tax cuts (BTC), are scheduled to expire at the end of 2010. The major tax provisions that are part of the current debate over the BTC are: reduced tax rates, reduction of the marriage penalty, repeal of the personal exemption phaseout and the limitation on itemized deductions, reduced tax rates on long-term capital gains and qualified dividends, and expanded tax credits.

This tour de force rips the intellectual cover off antitrust regulation to reveal it as a bludgeon used by businesses against their competitors. Unlike many critics, Professor Armentano carries the logic of his analysis to the fullest possible extent: "My position on antitrust has never been ambiguous," he writes. "All of the antitrust laws and all of the enforcement agency authority should be summarily repealed. The antitrust apparatus cannot be reformed; it must be abolished." Professor Armentano begins with the most rigorous and revealing account of the Microsoft antitrust battle t

No other narrative account of Abraham Lincoln's life has inspired such widespread acclaim as Lord Charnwood's Abraham Lincoln: A Complete Biography. Lord Charnwood has given us the most complete interpretation of Lincoln as yet produced, and he has presented it in such artistic form that it may well become classic. Many contemporary historians consider this thorough and superbly crafted work the quintessential biography of one of America's greatest presidents. Charnwood's study of Lincoln's statesmanship introduced generations of Americans to the life and politics of Lincoln, and the author's

MEDIA OWNERSHIP AND DEMOCRACY IN THE DIGITAL INFORMATION AGE combines a detailed review of First Amendment jurisprudence with rigorous economic analysis to demonstrate the continuing need for structural limits on media ownership to promote democratic discourse. Among the key findings: · Economic forces in mass media markets result in the undersupply of diverse sources of information, inadequate production of investigative "watch dog" news and the exercise of market power by media owners. · Increasing commercialism, concentration, consolidation and conglomeration undermine the ab

Laws are the whitewash that governments use to disguise the ugly fact that they steal money from productive people, then use it to control how they live their lives. Being merely one-sided contracts, laws have no moral validity whatsoever; but eight generations of government schooling have conned Americans into supposing that they are magic, to be held in respect and awe. Accordingly, if there is a tax law, most people tend to obey it. In this masterpiece, perhaps the most important book he ever wrote, Irwin Schiff shows that there is no such thing; how even that veneer of respectability fa
