Descriere: "Fascinating....Loaded with perceptive and provocative comments on Shakespeare's plots, characters, and contemporary analogs."
--Justice John Paul Stevens, Supreme Court of the United States"Kenji Yoshino is the face and the voice of the new civil rights."
--Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickled and DimedA Thousand Times More Fair is a highly inventive and provocative exploration of ethics and the law that uses the plays of William Shakespeare as a prism through which to view the nature of justice in our contemporary lives. Celebrated law professor and author Kenji Yoshino delves into ten of the most important works of the Immortal Bard of Avon, offering prescient and thought-provoking discussions of lawyers, property rights, vengeance (legal and otherwise), and restitution that have tremendous significance to the defining events of our times--from the O.J.

The Myth of Moral Justice: Why Our Legal

Pret: 89,00 RON

Thane Rosenbaum

The Myth of Moral Justice: Why Our Legal System Fails to Do What's Right

We are obsessed with watching television shows and feature films about lawyers, reading legal thrillers, and following real-life trials. Yet, at the same time, most of us don't trust lawyers and hold them and the legal system in very low esteem. In The Myth of Moral Justice , law professor and novelist Thane Rosenbaum suggests that this paradox stems from the fact that citizens and the courts are at odds when it comes to their definitions of justice. With a lawyer's expertise and a novelist's sensability, Rosenbaum tackles complicated philosophical questions about our longing for moral justice. He also takes a critical look at what our legal system does to the spirits of those who must come before the law, along with those who practice within it.
