Shaping and Sharing in Democratic Theory, 15 Florida State University Law Review 389 (1987)
Interstate cases pose most dramatically the question of the legitimacy
of a state's exercise of coercive power. Professor Brilmayer
analyzes two existing theories of interstate relations, rejects the
notion that democratic theory requires that interstate equality
need be an all-or-nothing issue, and suggests that the basis for a
state's coercive power towards outsiders should be sharing in the
burdens and benefits of state law.
