I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer

Pdf Law I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer

Pdf:I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer.Introduction by Gillian Flynn Afterword by Patton Oswalt A masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer - the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California for over a decade - from Michelle McNamara, the gifted journalist who died tragically while investigating the case. "You'll be silent forever, and I'll be gone in the dark." For more than 10 years, a mysterious and violent predator committed 50 sexual assaults in Northern California before moving south, where he perpetrated 10 sadistic murders. Then he disappeared, eluding capture by multiple police forces and some of the best detectives in the area. Three decades later Michelle McNamara, a true-crime journalist who created the popular website TrueCrimeDiary.com, was determined to find the violent psychopath she called "the Golden State Killer". Michelle pored over police reports, interviewed victims, and embedded herself in the Online communities that were as obsessed with the case as she was. At the time of the crimes, the Golden State Killer was between the ages of 18 and 30, Caucasian, and athletic - capable of vaulting tall fences. He always wore a mask. After choosing a victim - he favored suburban couples - he often entered their home when no one was there, studying family pictures, mastering the layout. He attacked while they slept, using a flashlight to awaken and blind them. Though they could not recognize him, his victims recalled his voice: a guttural whisper through clenched teeth, abrupt and threatening. I'll Be Gone in the Dark - the masterpiece McNamara was writing at the time of her sudden death - offers an atmospheric snapshot of a moment in American history and a chilling account of a criminal mastermind and the wreckage he left behind. It is also a portrait of a woman's obsession and her unflagging pursuit of the truth. Framed by an introduction by Gillian Flynn and an afterword by Michelle's husband, Patton Oswalt, the book was completed by Michelle's lead researcher and a close colleague. Utterly original and compelling, it is destined to become a true crime classic - and may at last unmask the Golden State Killer. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Drug Warrior: Inside the Hunt for El Chapo and the Rise of America's Opioid Crisis

Pdf Law Drug Warrior: Inside the Hunt for El Chapo and the Rise of America's Opioid Crisis

Pdf:Drug Warrior: Inside the Hunt for El Chapo and the Rise of America's Opioid Crisis.DEA Agent Jack Riley, "[Chicago's] most famous federal agent since the days of The Untouchables" (-Rolling Stone) tells the inside story of his 30-year hunt for the drug kingpin known as El Chapo, and reveals the true causes of the American opioid epidemic. Jack Riley, grandson of a Chicago cop known for using his fists, was born to be a drug warrior. Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán Loera, who farmed marijuana and opium poppies as a teenager in Mexico, was born to be a drug lord. Their worlds collided when Riley, a career special agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration, was promoted to lead the fight against Chapo on the border at El Paso.Drug Warrior is the story of Riley's decades-long hunt for the world's most wanted drug lord, set against the rise of modern international drug trafficking, and America's spiraling opioid epidemic. Jack Riley started his career as an undercover street agent in Chicago busting small-time dealers. By the time he worked his way up to second in command of the DEA - a post few field agents ever reach - he had overseen every major mission to capture foreign drug kingpins since the 1990s, and had witnessed first-hand how El Chapo changed the game. As brilliant as he was lethal, Chapo not only decimated his competition, he foresaw Americans' dependence on opioids and heroin, and manipulated supply to increase demand. Riley's story culminates as he and the DEA win their greatest victory - the capture and extradition of his long-time nemesis - and Chapo faces his darkest fear: U.S. justice. A riveting memoir of life inside the drug wars, and a never-before-seen glimpse of the inner-workings of the DEA, Drug Warrior is a critical examination of how America's opioid crisis came to be, and the extraordinary people fighting it.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The Chickenshit Club: Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executives

Pdf Law The Chickenshit Club: Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executives

Pdf:The Chickenshit Club: Why the Justice Department Fails to Prosecute Executives.From Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jesse Eisinger, a blistering account of corporate greed and impunity and the reckless, often anemic response from the Department of Justice. Why were no bankers put in prison after the financial crisis of 2008? Why do CEOs seem to commit wrongdoing with impunity? The problem goes beyond banks deemed "too big to fail" to almost every large corporation in America - to pharmaceutical companies and auto manufacturers and beyond. The Chickenshit Club - an inside reference to prosecutors too scared of failure and too daunted by legal impediments to do their jobs - explains why. A character-driven narrative, the book tells the story from inside the Department of Justice. The complex and richly reported story spans the last decade and a half of prosecutorial fiascos, corporate lobbying, trial losses, and culture shifts that have stripped the government of the will and ability to prosecute top corporate executives. The book begins in the 1970s, when the government pioneered the notion that top corporate executives, not just seedy crooks, could commit heinous crimes and go to prison. The book travels to trading desks on Wall Street, to corporate boardrooms and the offices of prosecutors and FBI agents. These revealing looks provide context for the evolution of the Justice Department's approach to pursuing corporate criminals through the early 2000s and into the Justice Department of today. Exposing one of the most important scandals of our time, The Chickenshit Club provides a clear, detailed explanation as to how our Justice Department has come to avoid, bungle, and mismanage the fight to bring these alleged criminals to justice.

Deadly Monopolies: The Shocking Corporate Takeover of Life Itself--And the Consequences for Your Health and Our Medical Future.

Pdf Law Deadly Monopolies: The Shocking Corporate Takeover of Life Itself--And the Consequences for Your Health and Our Medical Future.

Pdf:Deadly Monopolies: The Shocking Corporate Takeover of Life Itself--And the Consequences for Your Health and Our Medical Future..Review Praise for Deadly Monopolies:'Deadly Monopolies explores contentious issues in modern biomedical research that have been aggravated by the field’s commercial emphasis.....Though she is not the first to raise many of these concerns, Washington offers an overarching framework that enables readers to see connections that are often obscured. The book’s brilliance lies in the compassionately told narratives of individuals whose lives have been affected by the increasing corporate control of scientific research. Rather than simply writing another book about biomedical wrongdoing, Washington with her journalistic approach provides a more humane account of the problems tied to the for-profit nature of today’s research industry. In doing this, Washington accomplishes what has thus far escaped previous authors. She makes the case for a broader political consciousness of science and technology....This is precisely the conversation an important book starts in order to challenge readers to see the world differently so that they connect the disparate dots. Deadly Monopolies is an extraordinary achievement in this and many other regards.'—Osagie K. Obasogie, The American Prospect 'A searing look at the medical-industrial complex and its ability to patent genes and other biological products, resulting in an opportunistic and powerful pharmaceutical industry that often ignores the most pressing global-health issues in order to make a profit.National Book Critics Circle Award winner Washington (Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present, 2007, etc.) begins with the controversial 1980 Bayh-Dole Act, which allowed the commercialization of medical inventions based on government-funded patents, including those on living things. As a result, an unprecedented collusion between universities, researchers and private pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies spawned an era in which many vital medicines are too expensive or inaccessible to average consumers, or rushed to market before being adequately tested. Despite the fact that taxpayers largely fund medical research and development, pharma companies include that cost in their purported expenses, therefore using disingenuous figures to justify the skyrocketing costs of patented drugs. The author adeptly details the wide-ranging repercussions of this monopolistic research model and recounts chilling anecdotes that reveal a pattern of shady practices by biotech and pharma companies. These firms often display a lack of respect for patients' rights in a ruthless pursuit of 'blockbuster' drugs without regard for helping those who need it most. As of 2009, only 10 percent of the more than $70 billion spent per year on medical research addresses “diseases that cause 90 percent of the world's health burden.” In addition, minorities and poor populations are often exploited for their genetic material yet not compensated for their contribution. Thousands of people die from preventable causes simply because it's not profitable to save them. The author clearly presents data to elucidate these complex issues, and cogently argues that there are opportunities to reinstate transparency, collaboration and altruism in drug development and disbursement.A gripping, revelatory account.'—Kirkus Reviews (starred)“Harriet Washington has written an important and compelling book.  She shows how recent changes in patent law have caused drug prices to soar, while reducing innovation by drug companies to near-zero.  Well-documented, yet highly readable, the book paints a vivid picture of an industry that now exploits monopoly rights to patients' genes, and relies on taxpayer-funded NIH research for its few novel and important drugs—even as it turns out an endless stream of trivial variations of top-selling old drugs.”—Marcia Angell, M.D., author of The Truth About the Drug Companies and former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine “Harriet Washington shines her relentless torch into the darkest corners of Big Pharma with courage, dedication and accuracy.”     —John le Carré“Big Pharma is not going to like Deadly Monopolies one bit, but you probably will—especially if, like most Americans, you’re finding the co-pay on your drugs too much to handle. Washington correctly reminds us that, as hard as high drug costs are in the USA, they are lethal for the world’s poor. Brava Harriet Washington!”—Laurie Garrett, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and author of I Heard the Sirens Scream: How Americans Responded to the 9/11 and Anthrax Attacks “Patents, we’re repeatedly told, are crucial to fostering innovation. Deadly Monopolies reveals how the privatization of medical science is retarding research, putting patients at risk, and making what cures we have exorbitantly expensive. This book is a meticulously documented exposé of what’s gone wrong with our medical innovation system, and a roadmap for change.”—Merrill Goozner, author of The $800 Million Pill: The Truth Behind The Cost of New DrugsPraise for Harriet A. Washington’s Medical Apartheid:“An important book. The disgraceful history it details is a reminder that people in power have always been capable of exploiting those they regard as ‘other.’”—New York Times“A fresh account of the Tuskegee study, including new information, lies at the center of Harriet A. Washington’s courageous and poignant book. Washington sheds light on how our understanding of what constitutes medical research requires broadening in the face of new developments in genetic science.”—Washington Post Book Review “Medical Apartheid is fascinating and compelling . . . The book’s analysis challenges the reader to question established paradigms in the history of medicine.—Dr. Marius Turda, Oxford Brookes University, in Social History of Medicine“Groundbreaking . . . Washington is a great storyteller, and in addition to giving us an abundance of information on ‘scientific racism’ the book, even at its most distressing, is compulsively readable . . . Paints a powerful and disturbing portrait of medicine, race, sex, and the abuse of power.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)“One of [Washington’s] goals in writing this book, aside from documenting a shameful past, is to convince [African Americans] that they must participate actively in therapeutic medical research . . . while remaining ever alert to possible abuses . . . Sweeping and powerful.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Read more About the Author Harriet A. Washington is the author of Medical Apartheid, which won a National Book Critics Circle Award, the 2007 PEN Oakland Award, and the 2007 American Library Association Black Caucus Nonfiction Award.  She has been a fellow in medical ethics at the Harvard Medical School, a senior research scholar at the National Center for Bioethics at Tuskegee University, a fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health, and the recipient of a John S. Knight Fellowship at Stanford University. Read more See all Editorial Reviews

That’s why we created the Texas Real Estate License Exam Prep (TX-RELEP) the way we did. Since we have been managing real estate schools and developing curriculum for forty years, we know how all this works – or fails to work. TX-RELEP is comprehensive in that it contains both key content review and testing practice. And the text review is Texas-specific – not just simplistic national content, but terse, relevant and accurate Texas laws and regulations presented as a well-organized set of state ‘key point reviews’ ideal for pre-test memorization. But let’s not dismiss the importance of the national content either. TX-RELEP’s national key point reviews are a succinct compression of tested national principles and practices that comprise the national portion of state license exams from coast to coast. Our content is drawn from our own national textbook, Principles of Real Estate Practice – one of the most widely used principles textbooks in the country. Finally, our national content, as well as our question selection, is further tailored to the state testing outline promulgated by Pearson Vue for Texas. Thus the breadth and depth of the law reviews and test questions reflect the topic emphasis of your state’s testing service and your Texas license exam.A word about the test questions… TX-RELEP’s testing practice section consists of ten national practice tests, six state practice tests, and one state exam sample test. The practice tests are roughly 50 questions in length and the sample test is 100 questions. The test questions are designed to cover the content covered by the law reviews – which reinforces your learning of the total body of information tested by your Texas exam. The questions are direct, to the point, and designed to test your understanding. When you have completed a given test, you can check your answers against the answer key in the appendix. You may also note that each question’s answer is accompanied by a brief explanation, or “rationale” to further reinforce your understanding.In the end, as you know, it’s all up to you. Unlike other publications, we are not going to tell you that using this book will guarantee that you pass your state exam. It still takes hard work and study to pass. But we have done our best here to get you ready. Following that, the most we can do is wish you the best of success in taking and passing your Texas real estate exam.

In my opinion, it is essential that the professional involved with the investigation and prosecution of a homicide have a copy…. This is the most outstanding and comprehensive encyclopedia on the tactics, procedures, and forensic techniques of homicide investigations.'―Philip G. Schnelwar, Attorney at Law, White Plains, New York 'This book leaves no question that now more than ever, a homicide investigation must be based on a mix of the practical and the scientific. In fact, the new chapters and revised materials, along with the descriptive photos in this text … will place this edition in the category of a police text classic, an authoritative standard on the subject, and make this book the most complete homicide textbook available on the market today.'―Pierce R. Brooks (Deceased), from the Book's Foreword, Writing about the Previous Edition 'One of the most difficult aspects of homicide investigation…is to keep current and up-to-date with techniques, laws and procedures. Vernon Geberth continues to update and review critical matters…relating to the ever-changing world of homicide investigation. If you do not keep up to date with the latest techniques and investigative practices as Vernon explains them, you will wish you had when you are confronted with them on the witness stand at trial. I have prosecuted murder cases for over thirty years in New Mexico, Texas, and Colorado. This book and its accompanying Field Guide are used by me and our local investigators constantly.'―James Yontz, Deputy District Attorney, Pueblo, Colorado, USA'Vernon Geberth, a retired NYC homicide detective, is a prominent forensic consultant and the recognized clearinghouse for all things related to death investigations. The 1st edition had become a veritable bible for investigators, so I could just imagine what a 5th edition offered. I couldn’t wait to see it. At a crime scene, investigators should observe, describe, record anything they find, and use proper procedures to collect the evidence. This book goes over every known scenario: inside, outside, typical, atypical, straightforward, ambiguous, staged…you name it. In short, this book is impressive. Geberth leaves no stone unturned. I pride myself on my collection of unusual suicide cases, but he includes some in this book that riveted me.'―Psychology Today’s 'Shadow Boxing' blog June 2015, Katherine Ramsland. Katherine Ramsland, PhD, an expert on murder and serial crime, teaches forensic psychology and has published 46 books.'This newly published 5th edition of Practical Homicide Investigation is 1226 pages in length, and … is a collaboration of information made possible by the author, who has dedicated his life to providing the most up to date reference tool to homicide and death investigators and prosecutors throughout the country. This behemoth of a text continues that legacy …which make this latest edition a valuable tool for any investigator charged with the ‘profound duty and awesome responsibility,’ of conducting a homicide or death investigation.'―Detective Mark J. Czworniak (retired), Chicago Police Department, Area North - Homicide Sex Crimes Unit'This edition not only provides the scientific basis for homicide investigation, it also describes in intimate detail the procedures and techniques necessary for a comprehensive and successful investigation. The text is replete with photographs, drawings and illustrations ... including multiple case examples that are very clearly written and pertinent to the science as well as the practical procedures of homicide investigation. This is the most complete text available on the subject ... I highly recommend it to any officer involved in homicide investigation as well as forensic scientists.'―Ronald Turco, Past President, American Academy of Psychoanalysis and The American Society of Psychoanalytic Physicians, Former Reserve Police Officer of 30 years'This is a must-have reference for all homicide detectives. This comprehensive opus is nothing less than a masterpiece. The amount of information packed into 1200 pages is astonishing …truly a wonderful resource for all persons investigating and seeking to gain an understanding of every aspect of homicide. No question this text is the gold standard in the field. Truly a remarkable resource.'―Donna Pedergast, First Assistant District Attorney, Michigan Attorney General’s Office'Geberth, the world-wide expert on homicide investigation, is the real thing. His chapter on DNA is one of the most readable and comprehensive treatments on the subject. His expertise and clarity make this a must read. All of the twenty-four chapters have been excellently written and revised to make this textbook the continued recognized ‘Bible of Homicide Investigation’ for all members of the criminal justice and legal system.'―Edwin T. Dreher, Deputy Chief (Retired), Office of the Chief of Detectives, New York City Police Department'The best book on death investigations just got better. I love the new book … it has been significantly expanded and goes into even greater detail than Geberth’s previous editions. The use of case studies to explain the importance of the different steps is magnificent. The information has been updated to acknowledge the increased role technology plays in death investigations. This is the ultimate manual for death investigations; every homicide investigator should own a copy and use it like a physician’s desk reference.'―Larry Hallmark, Detective Lieutenant, Grapevine Texas Police Department 'Practical Homicide Investigation, Fifth Edition, will be your one-stop shopping resource for successful death investigations. The updates and additions are massive … the incorporation of today’s forensic and technological advances will keep you on the cutting edge of death investigations.'―Larry Thomas, Assistant Director, Kansas Bureau of Investigation (Ret.), BTK Serial Killer Task Force Supervisor'Once again, Vernon Geberth has set a new standard for learned treatises in homicide investigation … (the) Fifth Edition is thoughtful, provocative and, most of all, provides an expert guide for the men and women of our police forces.'―Charles S.

In addition to saving time and avoiding probate costs, a trust lets you control who will receive property after you die. 8 Living Trust Forms helps you create your own living trust forms to meet your needs.You'll discover how to:avoid probate,distribute property quickly,keep property distributions private,provide an alternative to creating a will,ensure your possessions will be distributed as you wish,reduce the potential family conflicts,and much more.For many people, a will is their first choice for passing on property to their loved ones, but it's not the only document that should be considered. Both a will and living trust contain your inheritance instructions, meaning they state who gets what property, when they will get it, and how they will get it. To create a living trust, a lawyer is not required or necessary, especially for simple living trusts. All you really need is a little bit of intelligence and the right information. A living trust can be an important part--and in some cases, the most important part--of your estate. A living trust can help ensure that your assets are managed according to your wishes, even if you become unable to manage the trusts yourself. Read more See all Editorial Reviews

The Grasping Hand: 'Kelo v. City of New London' and the Limits of Eminent Domain

Pdf Law The Grasping Hand: 'Kelo v. City of New London' and the Limits of Eminent Domain

Pdf:The Grasping Hand: 'Kelo v. City of New London' and the Limits of Eminent Domain.Review 'Somin's thorough rebuttal of the constitutional reasoning and philosophical implications of the Supreme Court's Kelo decision demonstrates why that ruling was a constructive disaster: It was so dreadful it has provoked robust defenses of the role of private property in sustaining Americans' liberty.' (George F. Will, journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner)“By dint of his uncommon thoroughness, Ilya Somin has become the leading and most persuasive critic of the Supreme Court’s ill-fated 2005 Kelo decision. His close examination of the case’s factual backdrop offers chilling confirmation of his central thesis: weak constitutional protection of property rights opens the door to political intrigue that exacts its greatest toll on the poor and vulnerable in society. Somin’s gripping account of the Grasping Hand confirms your worst fears about big government.”(Richard A. Epstein, NYU School of Law, author of Takings: Private Property and the Power of Eminent Domain) 'Mr. Somin… provides a fine tour of the case and of the intellectual history of eminent-domain law. More important, he provides a framework for thinking about the future of eminent domain and private property… Somin has written an important book that maps the road ahead for those who believe that individual freedom cannot be separated from the protection of private property.'(Edward Glaeser, Harvard University, Wall Street Journal) “The Grasping Hand is likely to be the definitive analysis of the Supreme Court’s controversial decision in the Kelo case. But Somin attends to much more than that. He sets out the political and doctrinal history that led up to Kelo and critiques the legislative and judicial developments provoked by the reaction to it. Somin has long been a champion of strong property rights. What he has to say will be of value to those who share that commitment and perhaps even more to those who don’t.” (James E. Krier, University of Michigan Law School)'Ilya Somin is one of the world's leading scholars on property rights...[and] his legal analysis of... eminent domain and the Kelo decision is extremely thorough and insightful. But The Grasping Hand has something more than just solid legal history and reasoning..... [U]nlike virtually all other scholarly works on eminent domain, [it] compellingly communicates the human... cost of governments teaming up with private interests to take the homes, small businesses, and other property of Americans.' (Dana Berliner & Scott Bullock, co-counsel for the homeowners in Kelo v. City of New London)'For anyone interested in the Kelo case, I recommend Somin’s book. It is the first book-length discussion of the Kelo appellate proceedings by a legal scholar. It is also by far the most exhaustively researched history of the public use doctrine in the state and federal courts before and since Kelo. While I do not share his opposition to the Kelo decision, I welcome his good scholarship on the subject.' (Wesley Horton, counsel for the City of New London in the US Supreme Court phase of the Kelo case)'In this carefully researched and convincingly argued volume, Ilya Somin provides a powerful critique of the Supreme Court’s “public use” jurisprudence and the controversial Kelo decision. He also gives careful attention to the hostile public reaction to the ruling, and points out that much of the post-Kelo reform legislation is inadequate to prevent future eminent domain abuse. This insightful book belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in the place of property rights in constitutional law.'(James W. Ely, Jr., Vanderbilt Law School, author of The Guardian of Every Other Right: A Constitutional History of Property Rights)'[A] key contribution to the literature on property rights. I dare say that this is the most important book on eminent domain since Richard Eptsein’s classic, Takings... [Somin's] voice is the voice of reason, precisely the kind of scholarship that is sorely needed in our polarized society. And this book is, today, the leading authority on Kelo.'(Fernando Teson, Florida State University College of Law)'It's a book that is both scholarly and readable, and filled with details, history, and perspective. You can't do better than this.'-(Robert H. Thomas, Owners Counsel of America, Chair, American Bar Association Committee on Eminent Domain)'The book provides a very well-written review of the background of the case, a close legal analysis of the relevant case law leading up to it, a detailed review of the legislative and judicial responses to the decision, and a discussion of possible safeguards against excessive use of eminent domain.... The book clearly advances a particular view of the case—namely, that it was decided in error—but it nevertheless provides a thorough and evenhanded review of the various perspectives on the public use issue.'-(Thomas Miceli, Public Choice, author of The Economic Theory of Eminent Domain: Private Property, Public Use)'The Grasping Hand.... is an excellent read and the definitive treatment of eminent domain and the Kelo case. As you might expect, Somin discusses the legal issues with aplomb. So much so that the book is endorsed by both of Kelo’s opposing counsel! In addition to the law and economics, Somin offers what for me was an eye-opening investigation of the history behind many of the major cases.'-Alex Tabarrok, George Mason University, Marginal Revolution'Ilya Somin has now written what is likely to be the definitive legal analysis of Kelo, its aftermath, and its future prospects....The Grasping Hand is excellent at laying out the political and doctrinal developments that led up to Kelo and at canvassing the backlash and legislative response to it.'-(Justin Torres, Weekly Standard)'I strongly recommend this book for its sharp legal, economic, and historical analysis of the eminent domain debate'-(George Leef, Forbes) '[T]his book is...a must read for anyone interested in the politics and history of property rights and property law in the United States. Its appeal is even broader though, and would be fruitfully read by anyone with an interest in constitutional theory, judicial impact, or cause lawyering. The book is accessible enough to be read by undergraduate students, and would be an excellent choice for an upper-level course on property law or the Supreme Court in American politics.' -(Logan Strother, Law and Politics Book Review, American Political Science Association).'Throughout this skillfully assembled book, Somin has his cards face-up on the table…. But he is scrupulously fair throughout to every constitutional perspective on these questions, and scrupulous too in his weighing of every policy variable, every interest at stake, and every measure of reform that might be taken. The story of the use and abuse of eminent domain is an unfinished one. But this is the book for understanding the story so far.' -(Matthew Franck, National Review). Read more About the Author Ilya Somin is professor of law at the George Mason University School of Law.  He is the author of Democracy and Political Ignorance: Why Smaller Government is Smarter. Somin's work has appeared in numerous academic and popular publications, including the Yale Law Journal, the Los Angeles Times, and USA Today. He writes regularly for the popular Volokh Conspiracy blog, affiliated with the Washington Post. Read more

Pdf:Concepts for International Law: Contributions to Disciplinary Thought.Review 'This volume traverses the concepts that aim to anchor international law. Presented as an ''experiment'' the work assembles the greatest voices to interrogate the power of international law's core concepts. And it does so with much success. This is a magnificent work.' --Larissa van den Herik, Leiden University, the Netherlands'The editors of this book offer it as a response to what they see as a profound contemporary malaise in international law, connected to a faltering faith in the liberal cosmopolitanism, and a deep understanding of international law's implications in many of the world's most horrific inequities and injustices. Through its diverse chapters, they explore the counterintuitive but intriguing proposition that the way out may lie in a new mode of 'conceptualisation', that is to say, a way of being in which the flawed conceptual heritage of international law is understood to require not just powerful critique, but also an attitude of gentle and knowing stewardship.' --Andrew Lang, University of Edinburgh, UK'This is an extremely rich and diverse collection of chapters on some important foundational concepts in international law. The chapters reflect the variety of approaches in international law today. I really enjoyed reading the book, as it challenged several of my assumptions about the field.' --Wouter Werner, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands Read more About the Author Edited by Jean d'Aspremont, Professor of International Law, Sciences Po Law School, France and University of Manchester, UK and Sahib Singh, Lecturer, University of Helsinki, Finland Read more

Complete Copyright: An Everyday Guide For Librarians

Pdf Law Complete Copyright: An Everyday Guide For Librarians

Pdf:Complete Copyright: An Everyday Guide For Librarians.From School Library Journal This comprehensive treatise views eight major components of the copyright issue through the eyes of a cast of imaginary librarians and library users. Readers will be attracted to the cartoon characters and humorous profiles that lead into each section. In 'Maggie Discovers Copyright,' a savvy fifth grader has concerns about automatic copyright, public domain, and copyright duration. Another chapter, 'Lena Posts a Web site,' guides a library media specialist through posting a pathfinder on her school's Web site. 'Charles Seeks Permission' guides a special-collections librarian through the process of seeking copyright permission to digitize articles for a publicly accessible Web site. Scenarios expand on related copyright components for easier problem solving, and clustering makes the information accessible from the table of contents as well as from the index. Nearly 100 pages of appended material, in contrasting color, contain portions of the copyright law, court cases, and fair use guidelines. The format features a spiral binding, font variations, and colored inset boxes with tips, facts, Q & As, and note-taking pages. This is an interesting guide, but with its busy format and many insert boxes, it's more of an armchair read than a reference source.–Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Read more From Booklist From ALA's Office for Information Technology Policy, this excellent addition to a library's professional collection views copyright through the prism of user rights. The use of a Creative Commons Deed License in place of the standard copyright notice exemplifies the fair and balanced copyright environment the book's focus promotes. Eight characters, from a fifth-grader to a university head librarian, help personalize the discussion. The eight chapters cover copyright basics, fair use, Section 108, first-sale doctrine, the TEACH Act (2002), public performances, interlibrary loan, course packs, artistic works, print and electronic reserves, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (1998), Internet-related issues, permissions, licensing, treaties, plagiarism, and advocacy. A clean layout, boxed highlights, room for notes, and a touch of humor contribute to the book's readability. As always, the information in the book should be reviewed with a library's legal advisor.

Complete Copyright for K-12 Librarians and Educators

Pdf Law Complete Copyright for K-12 Librarians and Educators

Pdf:Complete Copyright for K-12 Librarians and Educators.From Booklist Russell (director of ALA’s Program on Public Access to Information and author of Complete Copyright: An Everyday Guide for Librarians, 2004) provides seven scenarios that illustrate how to evaluate and apply fair use in schools. There are no simple lists of rules, because copyright lags behind advancing technology and the 1976 Copyright Act. Instead, the book offers typical problems (the school media center is renovated, and the librarian wants to copy old filmstrips to a PowerPoint presentation; a teacher wants to delete swear words from a DVD she shows in class; a student wants to paint a mural on the wall featuring scenes from Twilight) and their solutions. Russell notes that most K–12 teachers and librarians are afraid of legal liability and do not explore reasonable options. There are eight appendixes and a glossary of terms, and an excellent index paves the way for quick lookups of fair-use concerns. This unique resource is highly recommended for schools and would also be of interest to academic and public librarians. The illustrations and scenarios make this book a particularly user-friendly and interesting read. --Sharon Cohen Read more Review 'An excellent resource that both corrects longstanding misconceptions about copyright among educators, and supplies a coherent, step-by-step approach to solving copyright conundrums within school communities.' --Public Libraries Read more See all Editorial Reviews

Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy: The Special Education Survival Guide

Pdf Law Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy: The Special Education Survival Guide

Pdf:Wrightslaw: From Emotions to Advocacy: The Special Education Survival Guide.Review Learning to be an effective advocate for your special needs child IS work! Special education is a 'right', but must be assiduously pursued. But there are definite tactics and strategies to assist the parent. From Emotions to Advocacy [FETA] is a wonderful map for every parent. The book follows a logical and well organized road, beginning with preparing the reader for understanding the complex interplay of parents, schools, disabilities, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and other disability laws. Among the important lessons that authors Pamela and Peter Wright teach are how to organize your files using a document management system, how to use private sector expert evaluations of your child and why they are essential, and how to understand the critical role of testing, percentile ranks, and the Bell Curve, and how to use those results to work for your child's 'SMART IEP'. The use of the 'Columbo Strategy' to build valid IEP goals by asking 'who, what,why,where, when, how and explain' [5Ws+H+E] is taught. The critical skill of letter writing and documenting all conversations, agreements, and decisions with your school administrators is part of the strategy of writing calm, factual letters as if they will be read by a 'Stranger'. Lessons to bolster your self confidence and achieve results in IEP meetings are carefully discussed. The sample letters in the appendices and the numerous strategy discussions lay out how to avoid letting anger and other emotions interfere with keeping your focus on improving your child's education. Numerous other appendices and cross references throughout FETA provide additional resources, including the informative Q&As of the federal IDEA Appendix A. As an attorney who has a child with special needs, I have benefited greatly from Peter and Pam Wright's insights and apply that knowledge in my own practice. FETA is the 'how-to' starting point and compass for all parents entering the special education struggle. --By Malcolm B. Higgins, II, Attorney at Law in Virginia Beach, VirginiaThis book is the perfect companion to 'Wrightslaw: Special Education Law'. If you have a child with special needs the most frustrating thing as a parent is trying to get educational services for your child. This book teaches you how to advocate for your child to get the services he needs. The Wrights give you the confidence and skills that you need to successfully advocate for your child. This book (and it's predecessor) help level the playing field between the parents and the school. As a parent and child advocate, I own several 100 books. This book (and Wrightslaw) rank in the top 5. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who has a special needs child who is attending public school. --By William W. Joslin in TXThis is the book that parents of special needs children have been searching for! When a child does not 'fit in the box', parents find that they must search for information on how to care for their child. Just when they have mastered the medical maze, the child begins school and the search for advice and knowledge begins all over again! Children with disabilities who succeed in school have parents who learn to set aside their feelings and clothe themselves in the armor of advocacy. 'From Emotions to Advocacy' assists parents in the journey through the special education labyrinth by giving them a focus. Parents learn accurate documentation and record-keeping, productive communication skills, effective tactics and strategies, and Pete and Pam Wright have put it all together into an easy to read, understandable package. Parents who use the process and procedures outlined in 'From Emotions to Advocacy' will avoid many of the pitfalls that entrap many parents of special needs --Patricia HoweyThis book is the perfect companion to 'Wrightslaw: Special Education Law'.

I wish this book had been available in 1986, not only for my own use, but so that the hundreds of parents I have worked with since then could have benefited from it. If you are the parent or if you know of a parent of a special needs child, do yourself or them a favor. Buy yourself or them this book! --Patricia Howey Read more About the Author Peter Wright and Pamela Wright are Adjunct Professors of law at the William and Mary Law School where they teach a course about special education law and advocacy.

From constitutional law to contracts to Dickensian procedures that guide civil suites, the book gives an approachable overview of the cases and concepts that combine to form our legal system.' --Newark Star-Ledger'Though a book is aimed at laypersons, it offers a good refresher course to update legal practitioners and paraprofessionals in areas where they do not specialize. A good read overall for those interested in the law.' --Booklist'Law 101 attempts to teach you how to think like a lawyer--without requiring that you dedicate three years and tens of thousands of dollars to the task. The result? A practical book that is also a pleasure to read.' --The Trenton Times'This basic text offers nonlawyers a concise, accessible overview of topics typically introduced in the first year of law school. Feinman, a law professor at Rutgers, cites seminal cases to highlight key concepts in the fields of constitutional law, civil procedure, torts, contracts, property, criminal law and criminal procedure. He does not minimize the actual complexity of these subjects, conceding variously that contract law has 'tormented the most students,' property law 'most irritates students,' conflicts of law 'tortures students' and civil procedure is 'the most alien.' Nevertheless, he distinguishes his book from the various how-to-be-your-own-lawyer manuals on the market: 'This one is fun to read.' ...But many readers, particularly those contemplating law school, will find this a painless introduction to American legal theory and practice.' --Publishers Weekly (Praise for the Second Edition)'Many readers, particularly those contemplating law school, will find this a painless introduction to American legal theory and practice.' --Publishers Weekly'Feinman's style makes for easy reading, and Law101 is chock full of analyses, anecdotes, examples, questions, and legal reasoning set out in lay terms. Overall, the book provides an excellent explanation of what American law is, and it frequently suggests ways in which it might be improved.' --The Federal Lawyer'Academic law libraries and law libraries serving the public, academic libraries serving undergraduate students, and public libraries will find this book a good addition to their collections. This book is also a good read for students thinking of attending law school and for those persons who have been away from the practice of law but are interested in getting reacquainted with its basics.' --Alicia G.

Prisoners' Self-Help Litigation Manual

Pdf Law Prisoners' Self-Help Litigation Manual

Pdf:Prisoners' Self-Help Litigation Manual.Review 'In the many years I have worked with people facing or serving capital and Life sentences, I have experienced their frustration at their own inability to take charge of their cases and/ or their grievances...they lack the skills and the access to good law libraries. The Prisoners' Self-Help Litigation Manual, available for more than 25 years but recently updated, takes on the task of providing prisoners with the tools to handle their legal needs. It explains the pertinent law, shows them what they need to do to litigate an issue, and provides them with resources for help. As a self-trained professional in this field, I also found it extremely helpful. I truly believe that defense teams, advocates, and family members of the incarcerated should do their best to see that clients and loved ones have this important resource.

Pdf Law Forensics: What Bugs, Burns, Prints, DNA, and More Tell Us About Crime

Pdf:Forensics: What Bugs, Burns, Prints, DNA, and More Tell Us About Crime.Review Praise for Forensics:“McDermid’s entertaining foray into nonfiction . . . offers fascinating glimpses into the grisly crime-scene investigation arena . . . McDermid brings the same pleasurable, scrupulous attention to detail and highly visual descriptions to Forensics as she does to her fiction.”—Boston Globe“Fascinating . . . A gripping history of the anatomy of crime. Each of the chapters—which examine themes such as fire scene investigation, toxicology, fingerprinting, DNA and blood splatter and facial reconstruction—contains a wealth of surprising information. . . . If McDermid is ever stuck for inspiration for her novels she could do worse than turn to her own book of the dead for inspiration.”—The Independent (UK)“An energetic, eye-opening work of reporting by the distinguished Scottish crime novelist Val McDermid . . . Real-world forensics is no less fascinating than fiction—and perhaps just the opposite . . . McDermid, a former newspaper journalist and bureau chief, has her reporter hat on this time. The result is clear-eyed, vigorous, unpretentious and mesmerizing . . . Thanks to McDermid’s resolute curiosity, every page of Forensics has astonishing stuff.”—The Seattle Times“McDermid examines the creativity of forensic experts through the analytic techniques they apply to real-life crime . . . McDermid has not lost her early journalistic genius for telling a good story plainly and with passion.”—Times Saturday Review (UK)“Fascinating . . . Val McDermid is one of the most skilled of crime writers and she has gone a step beyond killing by writing with crisp authority on the facts that lie behind gruesome events.”—The Washington Times“[McDermid] burrows into the wild history of forensics, interviewing top scientists and culling from innovative research to explain practices like using maggots to calculate time of death.”—Entertainment Weekly (“Brainy & Brilliant Beach Books”)“Our fascination with crime has spawned libraries of books and years of TV programming. Val McDermid is a major player in the genre . . . She has now written a guide to criminal forensics that is every bit as compelling as the best of the fictional genre. She combines science with the macabre, from the Great Fire of London to some of the most sensational trials of recent times.” —The Irish Times“In charting the ‘astonishing leaps’ that forensic science has made over the past two centuries, McDermid provides a grimly absorbing account of crime and its detection.”—The Observer (UK)“[McDermid] approaches the grisly realities of crime scenes and corpses with a neophyte’s sense of wonder . . . A satisfying insider’s excursion into the scientific realities behind CSI-style pop culture.”—Kirkus Reviews“McDermid’s deep dives into history and science add substance. She does a commendable job of explaining some timely issues, such as the use of mega-data in digital forensics and the latest controversies about forensic DNA . . . An enjoyable read . . . It will certainly please readers of McDermid’s novels, who will want to have her take on the subject.”—The Washington Post “Gruesomely fascinating . . . Fans of McDermid’s fiction will gain a greater understanding of where her ideas come from.”—Publishers Weekly“McDermid would make a good doctor, managing to be clinically precise but engaging at the same time. . . . Drawing on interrogative skills learned from her first career as a journalist, the result is a highly readable, eye-opening account of the way in which criminals have slowly had their wings clipped and their getaways thwarted over the past hundred and more years.”—The Herald (Scotland) Read more About the Author A former journalist and Northern Bureau Chief of a national UK tabloid, Val McDermid is the best-selling author of thirty novels, three story collections, and another non-fiction book called A Suitable Job for a Woman, an inside look at female private investigators. She has received numerous awards recognizing her exceptional career, including the Crime Writers’ Association Cartier Diamond Dagger Award for outstanding achievement in the field of crime writing and the Pioneer Award from Lambda Literary.

Pdf Law Dealing in Virtue: International Commercial Arbitration and the Construction of a Transnational Legal Order (Chicago Series in Law and Society)

Pdf:Dealing in Virtue: International Commercial Arbitration and the Construction of a Transnational Legal Order (Chicago Series in Law and Society).From the Back Cover In recent years, international business disputes have increasingly been resolved through private arbitration. The first book of its kind, Dealing in Virtue details how an elite group of transnational lawyers constructed an autonomous legal field that has given them a central and powerful role in the global marketplace.Building on Pierre Bourdieu's structural approach, the authors show how an informal, settlement-oriented system became formalized and litigious. Integral to this new legal field is the intense personal competition among arbitrators to gain a reputation for virtue -- including expertise in international arenas -- that will lead to selection for arbitration panels. Since arbitration fees have skyrocketed, this is a high-stakes game.Using multiple examples, Dezalay and Garth explore how international developments can transform domestic methods for handling disputes and analyze the changing prospects for international business dispute resolution given the growing presence of such international market and regulatory institutions such as the EEC, NAFTA, and the WTO.

The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy

Pdf Law The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy

Pdf:The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy.Review Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! In this case, he comes in the form of former University of Miami School of Law professor Robert M. LeVine, who has made one of the most complicated bodies of law in the United States the Uniform Commercial Code not only comprehensible but entertaining. LeVine teaches the UCC through a narrative that involves common commercial events and explains how the UCC deals with them. In the narrative, Stephen Seller is a beach bum in Key Biscayne, Florida, who receives a significant inheritance and decides to enter the boat business. He retains Alan Lawyer to assist him in forming a corporation, entering into a distributorship agreement with a boat manufacturer, and obtaining financing from a bank. Alan enlists the help of Doug Hawkins, a young associate at his firm who specializes in the UCC. The trio then engages in a myriad of transactions involving the boat business and other commercial enterprises, as well as some of Stephen s personal purchases all of which raise UCC issues. Stephen expands into other ventures, including citrus agriculture and oil wells, until he becomes overwhelmed and returns to the beach. Alan takes over Stephen s boat business only to face bankruptcy when the market for pleasure boats collapses because of the recent economic downturn. After the enterprises run their course enabling LeVine to illustrate the scope of the UCC Doug and Stephen become close friends and supporters of the South Florida Children s Academy, with assistance from the law firm at which Doug works. The scenarios that Stephen, Alan, and Doug encounter along the way are realistic and engaging. They make the UCC understandable and interesting, because the reader can see how the statute contemplates the structure of commercial transactions so that outcomes are predictable, and how it provides for the resolution of disputes concerning security interests, the priority of claims, the performance of contracts, and similar matters. The book is broad in scope, covering UCC Articles 1 (general provisions), 2 (contracts), 2A (leases), 3 (negotiable instruments), 4 (bank deposits and collections), 4A (funds transfers), 5 (letters of credit), 7 (documents of title), and 9 (secured transactions), and touching on bankruptcy issues that affect commercial transactions, such as secured claims, preferences, the function of bankruptcy trustees, and other basic aspects of the Bankruptcy Code. LeVine s book is also engaging because it teaches the UCC in an unconventional way: by parable rather than by the case method. The use of a parable may be particularly effective in dealing with the UCC because so much UCC law is not court-derived, and therefore lends itself to an overarching narrative approach rather than an approach of simply studying individual cases. Although the book may be used as a text to teach the UCC, it will also be of interest to practitioners seeking an accessible refresher of basic UCC principles. LeVine recommends that the reader absorb the book in stages, first through an initial read to provide a foundation and then through study of its more-detailed and complex provisions. He likens the process to building a house: The first read creates a basic foundation, and each future read places more bricks on the structure. The beauty of the presentation lies in its simplicity, making the construction of the house much more pleasant than many lawyers found their law school study of the UCC to be. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy is not a substitute for the UCC or for authoritative interpretations of it, but it is not intended to be. It is intended to be a teaching tool that instructs and entertains, and it succeeds on both counts. Reviewed by Thomas R. Schuck --Thomas R. Schuck, Past President Federal Bar AssociationTHIS BOOK BELONGS IN THE HANDS OF EVERY SMALL BUSINESS OWNER IN AMERICA! In retrospect I realize how blindly I had journeyed while establishing my practice/small business. I depended on my bank, vendors and minor legal assistance to guide me through the process. I would have been so much better equipped with the wisdom and guidance of this easy to read and understand book. I thoroughly enjoyed the story format of Stephen s business adventure! --Dr. Kimberly Fabre, DDS, PAIt s true. The UCC is just as daunting as it looks, and this book is the key to unlocking its mysteries. Infused with practicality, The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy combines every day transactions with straightforward law, allowing students to not only navigate the UCC with ease, but also develop a lasting understanding of the material. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy s revolutionary approach to the UCC has extensive application both in and out of the classroom as a resource for professors and a study aid for students. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy by LeVine was my key to success in understanding the UCC, and enjoying it! Melissa Carroll Stetson University College of Law --Meilissa Caroll, Law Student Read more About the Author Robert M. LeVine, JD is the author of The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy, a revolutionary, ground breaking approach to the teaching of law. Upon graduation from the University of Chicago School of Law, LeVine began his legal career with the Miami, Florida law firm of Shutts & Bowen, where he was responsible for all Uniform Commercial Code related matters for the firm. Shortly thereafter, LeVine became an adjunct and then full time professor of law at the University of Miami School of Law, where he taught courses on the Uniform Commercial Code and the Federal Regulation of Banking. LeVine has delivered Uniform Commercial Code seminars for the American Bar Association and to state, municipal, and county Bar Associations throughout the United States. LeVine also delivered a Uniform Commercial Code seminar, through an interpreter, to the first delegation of attorneys from mainland China to visit the United States.

Pdf Law Models of Integrity: Art and Law in Post-Sixties America

Pdf:Models of Integrity: Art and Law in Post-Sixties America.From the Inside Flap “This strikingly original book analyzes interactions between contemporary art and American law in a rich and powerful way. One might think these cultural forms had nothing to say to each other, but Joan Kee sits the reader down in a new place of her own making. She shows that these forms and their relationship are very different from what one might have thought—they're fascinating, often in tension, sometimes listening to each other, at once enemies and friends. A real achievement!”—James Boyd White, L. Hart Wright Collegiate Professor of Law Emeritus, University of Michigan “This book is a very important piece of scholarship that ties together two very disparate fields: art history and legal analysis. Joan Kee, a top-flight lawyer and an art historian, makes a very powerful contribution to the existing field, which has been less covered with regard to post-sixties art. Not only does she do an excellent job of informing readers about existing law and how it governs contemporary art, but she also adds quite a bit of context and argument to current debates in a fresh and exciting manner.”—Sonia Katyal, Chancellor’s Professor of Law and Co-director of the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, University of California, Berkeley “Important, meticulously researched, and beautifully written, Models of Integrity is an illuminating analysis of the entanglements between U.S. law and contemporary art practices from the 1960s to the present. In a thorough and lucid voice, Joan Kee guides the reader—especially the reader reticent to engage with the question of the law—through the stories of key figures in contemporary art history in order to illustrate law and art’s mutual implication. This book brings the submerged connections between art and law to the surface, asking us in turn to reimagine our understanding of both.”—Joshua Chambers-Letson, Associate Professor of Performance Studies, Northwestern University “A tour de force of scholarship and interdisciplinarity, this book is fundamentally about power: who wields it, how it takes shape, and how it can be contested. Joan Kee shines a new light on the ways in which seminal artworks and artists in postwar America posed uniquely new models of justice, originality, authorship, property, identity, form, and experience. At a time when art itself was being radically redefined—as a statement, or contract, or act—this extraordinary study reframes the rise of performance, process, and conceptual art in terms of a contest between law and disorder, ethics and exegesis, control and freedom, authority and community, intention and force majeure. Kee’s groundbreaking work will change the way we think about culture and society; it will reshape our understanding of what art is—and what it can do.”—Michelle Kuo, Marlene Hess Curator of Painting and Sculpture, Museum of Modern Art 'Rich, original, and provocative, Models of Integrity is essential reading for anyone interested in the intersection of art and law.'—Amy Adler, Emily Kempin Professor of Law at New York University School of Law   Read more About the Author Joan Kee is Associate Professor in the History of Art at the University of Michigan. Formerly a lawyer in Hong Kong and New York, she is the author of numerous articles on contemporary art and law as well as a widely reviewed book, Contemporary Korean Art: Tansaekhwa and the Urgency of Method.

When I took it to the attorneys to get their opinion and to see how much it would cost for them to finalize it, they told me I’d just saved myself a lot of money―I’d basically done the whole thing myself. More important, the book gave me a good understanding of what’s patentable and what’s not. For any entrepreneur who’s inventing something, it’s the one book you should read.'

Worship of Hollow Gods: Book 1, Leaving Home Trilogy

Pdf Law Worship of Hollow Gods: Book 1, Leaving Home Trilogy

Pdf:Worship of Hollow Gods: Book 1, Leaving Home Trilogy.In Worship of Hollow Gods, James Sniechowski bears witness to the world of a sensitive nine-year-old boy subjected to the underbelly of his Polish Catholic family in working-class Detroit. The year is 1950. The family gathers for a Friday-night family poker/pinochle party. The outcome reveals a world no one ever talked about then and are forbidden to talk about now - the unspoken, the impermissible, the reality beneath every family's practiced facade - and what lies beneath when the front has been ripped away.  Sniechowski unsparingly yet compassionately evokes the temptations, trials, and tactics of the family characters while revealing the hollow gods they naively but fatefully worshiped. Listeners, no matter where in the world, will be prompted if not pushed to confront the hollow gods that reside, like living ghosts, in the unseen of their family's way of life, the invisible that sources and shapes their beliefs and behaviors.  Worship of Hollow Gods dredges up familial bonds that grip and hold tight, unconsciously dictating our destiny. It is storytelling at its caring and compelling best.  "This is the first installment in the author's Leaving Home Trilogy, and it's a beautifully impressionistic novel that he describes as 'autobiographical fiction.' The prose is powerfully evocative, ably capturing the bewildered isolation Jim experiences in his own home: 'At nine years old, I could feel that barrenness, the draining effect of mechanical living; feel but not make sense of; feel in my body like a worm screwing itself into my every day.' A poignant and poetic depiction of a tumultuous childhood." (Kirkus Reviews)

That woman was Mary, the mother of Jesus, the central role model of faith and service in the Catholic Church. In this follow-up to Our Father, Pope Francis explores and unpacks line-by-line the meaning of the Ave Maria prayer, while celebrating women and all they do as mothers, sisters, friends, and leaders. Teaming up again with theologian Marco Pozza, Francis demonstrates Mary's complex nature and how her example challenges all of us to lead lives of faith, hope, and perseverance. In the end, she is an icon not just for the religious, but for all who look to grow more deeply in their purpose in life.

Pdf Law Deported Americans: Life after Deportation to Mexico

Pdf:Deported Americans: Life after Deportation to Mexico.Review 'A deeply informed appeal to create more humane practices for noncitizens facing criminal deportation. . . . Caldwell looks systematically at the effects of deportation to Mexico on the spouses and children especially (drug abuse, depression, suicide, attractions to gangs) and how this inhumane banishment should be amended. A compelling, rigorously researched legal argument against the demonization of deportees.' (Kirkus Reviews 2019-02-01)'By telling their stories, Caldwell humanizes the crises these individuals endure, including those of spouses and children who face the decision of having to leave everything they know behind to be with their exiled loved ones. A stark portrayal of the contradictory, misguided, and ineffectual immigration laws that determine the futures of so many.' (Kenneth Otani Booklist 2019-03-15) Read more Review “In this beautifully written book, Beth C. Caldwell presents the story of ‘deported Americans’—noncitizens with strong ties to the United States who view themselves as Americans. She sheds much-needed light on how deportees experience and attempt to cope with their removal from the United States. In so doing, Caldwell not only provides a picture of the difficult and sometimes heartbreaking experiences of our deported diaspora but also presents a useful roadmap for policy reform.” (Jennifer M. Chacón, coauthor of Immigration Law and Social Justice)“Deported Americans provides a compelling, clear, and humanistic analysis of the widespread consequences of U.S. policies of mass deportations. Drawing on extensive research, and writing evocatively and personably about the lives of deportees, Beth C. Caldwell deftly combines astute legal analysis with rich stories of deportees and their family members.” (Tanya Maria Golash-Boza, author of Forced Out and Fenced In: Immigration Tales from the Field) Read more See all Editorial Reviews

Practical Equality: Forging Justice in a Divided Nation

Pdf Law Practical Equality: Forging Justice in a Divided Nation

Pdf:Practical Equality: Forging Justice in a Divided Nation.Equality is easy to grasp in theory but often hard to achieve in reality. In this accessible and wide-ranging work, American University law professor Robert L. Tsai offers a stirring account of how legal ideas that aren't necessarily about equality at all - ensuring fair play, behaving reasonably, avoiding cruelty, and protecting free speech - have often been used to overcome resistance to justice and remain vital today.Practical Equality is an original and compelling book on the intersection of law and society. Tsai, a leading expert on constitutional law who has written widely in the popular press, traces challenges to equality throughout American history: from the oppression of emancipated slaves after the Civil War to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II to President Trump's ban on Muslim travelers. He applies lessons from these and other past struggles to such pressing contemporary issues as the rights of sexual minorities and the homeless, racism in the criminal justice system, police brutality, voting restrictions, oppressive measures against migrants, and more.Deeply researched and well argued, Practical Equality offers a sense of optimism and a guide to pursuing equality for activists, lawyers, public officials, and concerned citizens.

Recounting the Anthrax Attacks: Terror, the Amerithrax Task Force, and the Evolution of Forensics in the FBI

Pdf Law Recounting the Anthrax Attacks: Terror, the Amerithrax Task Force, and the Evolution of Forensics in the FBI

Pdf:Recounting the Anthrax Attacks: Terror, the Amerithrax Task Force, and the Evolution of Forensics in the FBI.It was September 18, 2001, just seven days after al-Qaeda hijackers destroyed the Twin Towers. In the early morning darkness, a lone figure dropped several letters into a mailbox. Seventeen days later, a Florida journalist died of inhalational anthrax. The death from the rare disease made world news. These anthrax attacks marked the first time a sophisticated biological weapon was released in the United States. It killed five people, disfigured at least 18 more, and launched the largest investigation in the FBI's history.Recounting the Anthrax Attacks explores the origins of the innovative forensics used in this case, while also explaining their historical context. R. Scott Decker's team pursued its first suspect with dogged determination before realizing that the evidence did not add up. With renewed energy, they turned to non-traditional forensics - scientific initiatives never before applied to an investigation - as they continued to hunt for clues. These advances formed the new science of microbial forensics, a novel discipline that produced critical leads when traditional methods failed. The new technologies helped identify a second suspect - one who possessed the knowledge and skills to unleash a living weapon of mass destruction.

Prosecuting the President: How Special Prosecutors Hold Presidents Accountable and Protect the Rule of Law

Pdf Law Prosecuting the President: How Special Prosecutors Hold Presidents Accountable and Protect the Rule of Law

Pdf:Prosecuting the President: How Special Prosecutors Hold Presidents Accountable and Protect the Rule of Law.In Prosecuting the President, Andrew Coan offers a highly engaging look at the long, mostly forgotten history of special prosecutors in American politics. For more than a century, special prosecutors have struck fear into the hearts of presidents, who have the power to fire them at any time. How could this be, Coan asks? And how could the nation entrust such a high responsibility to such subordinate officials? With vivid storytelling and historical examples, Coan demonstrates that special prosecutors can do much to protect the rule of law under the right circumstances.   Many have been thwarted by the formidable challenges of investigating a sitting president and his close associates; a few have abused the powers entrusted to them. But at their best, special prosecutors function as catalysts of democracy, channeling an unfocused popular will to safeguard the rule of law. By raising the visibility of high-level misconduct, they enable the American people to hold the president accountable. Yet, if a president thinks he can fire a special prosecutor without incurring serious political damage, he has the power to do so. Ultimately, Coan concludes, only the American people can decide whether the president is above the law.

Pdf Law Federal Rules of Evidence with Cues and Signals for Good Objections, 1st Edition

Pdf:Federal Rules of Evidence with Cues and Signals for Good Objections, 1st Edition.Knowing the technical bases for objections is not so difficult. Law school covers that. What is much harder is recognizing a good objection very quickly when your opponent puts a question to a witness or starts using a document. This handy guide identifies the "cues" to listen for when your opponent asks a question or the witness gives an answer. These words or phrases that are the "cues" that tell you instantly that you likely have a good objection. When you know the cues, you can object rapidly and successfully. For documents, this guide also provides the "signals" that support a useful objection. For example, many lawyers miss the objection to "lay opinion" when the writer of a document gives his own view of why something happened. Cues and Signals gives you details on every objection that has been recognized in federal courts and sorts out the high-payoff objections from those of lower priority for both oral testimony and exhibits. Everything you need on objections is in one audiobook.

Tough Cases: Judges Tell the Stories of Some of the Hardest Decisions They've Ever Made

Pdf Law Tough Cases: Judges Tell the Stories of Some of the Hardest Decisions They've Ever Made

Pdf:Tough Cases: Judges Tell the Stories of Some of the Hardest Decisions They've Ever Made."Tough Cases stands out as a genuine revelation.... Our most distinguished judges should follow the lead of this groundbreaking volume." (Justin Driver, The Washington Post) A rare and illuminating view of how judges decide dramatic legal cases - Law and Order from behind the bench - including the Elián González, Terri Schiavo, and Scooter Libby cases Prosecutors and defense attorneys have it easy - all they have to do is to present the evidence and make arguments. It's the judges who have the heavy lift: they are the ones who have to make the ultimate decisions, many of which have profound consequences on the lives of the people standing in front of them. In Tough Cases, judges from different kinds of courts in different parts of the country write about the case that proved most difficult for them to decide. Some of these cases received international attention: the Elián González case in which Judge Jennifer Bailey had to decide whether to return a seven-year-old boy to his father in Cuba after his mother drowned trying to bring the child to the United States, or the Terri Schiavo case in which Judge George Greer had to decide whether to withdraw life support from a woman in a vegetative state over the wishes of her parents, or the Scooter Libby case about appropriate consequences for revealing the name of a CIA agent. Others are less well-known but equally fascinating: a judge on a Native American court trying to balance US law with tribal law, a young Korean-American former defense attorney struggling to adapt to her new responsibilities on the other side of the bench, and the difficult decisions faced by a judge tasked with assessing the mental health of a woman who has killed her own children. Relatively few judges have publicly shared the thought processes behind their decision making. Tough Cases makes for fascinating listening for everyone from armchair attorneys and fans of Law and Order to those actively involved in the legal profession who want insight into the people judging their work.

Beyond These Walls: Rethinking Crime and Punishment in the United States

Pdf Law Beyond These Walls: Rethinking Crime and Punishment in the United States

Pdf:Beyond These Walls: Rethinking Crime and Punishment in the United States.A groundbreaking investigation into the roots of the American criminal justice system reveals how the past bleeds into the present. Beyond These Walls is an ambitious and far-ranging exploration that tracks the legacy of crime and imprisonment in the United States, from the historical roots of the American criminal justice system to our modern state of over-incarceration, and offers a bold vision for a new future. Author Tony Platt, a recognized authority in the field of criminal justice, challenges the way we think about how and why millions of people are tracked, arrested, incarcerated, catalogued, and regulated in the United States. Beyond These Walls traces the disturbing history of punishment and social control, revealing how the criminal justice system attempts to enforce and justify inequalities associated with class, race, gender, and sexuality. Prisons and police departments are central to this process, but other institutions - from immigration and welfare to educational and public health agencies - are equally complicit. Platt argues that international and national politics shape perceptions of danger and determine the policies of local criminal justice agencies, while private policing and global corporations are deeply and undemocratically involved in the business of homeland security. Finally, Beyond These Walls demonstrates why efforts to reform criminal justice agencies have often expanded rather than contracted the net of social control. Drawing upon a long tradition of popular resistance, Platt concludes with a strategic vision of what it will take to achieve justice for all in this era of authoritarian disorder. Full production copyright: Brilliance Publishing, Inc., all rights reserved.

The Meaning of Life: The Case for Abolishing Life Sentences

Pdf Law The Meaning of Life: The Case for Abolishing Life Sentences

Pdf:The Meaning of Life: The Case for Abolishing Life Sentences.From the author of the classic Race to Incarcerate, a forceful and necessary argument for eliminating life sentences, including profiles of six people directly impacted by life sentences by formerly incarcerated author Kerry Myers Most Western democracies have few or no people serving life sentences, yet here in the United States more than 200,000 people are sentenced to such prison terms. Marc Mauer and Ashley Nellis of The Sentencing Project argue that there is no practical or moral justification for a sentence longer than 20 years. Harsher sentences have been shown to have little effect on crime rates, since people "age out" of crime - meaning that we're spending a fortune on geriatric care for older prisoners who pose little threat to public safety. Extreme punishment for serious crime also has an inflationary effect on sentences across the spectrum, helping to account for severe mandatory minimums and other harsh punishments.A thoughtful and stirring call to action, The Meaning of Life also features moving profiles of a half dozen people affected by life sentences, written by former "lifer" and award-winning writer Kerry Myers. The book will tie in to a campaign spearheaded by The Sentencing Project and offers a much-needed road map to a more humane criminal justice system.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Pdf Law The Legal Barriers to Technology Transfer under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change: The Example of China

Pdf:The Legal Barriers to Technology Transfer under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change: The Example of China.From the Back Cover The book discusses climate technology transfer under the UNFCCC framework, and China’s relevant legislation and practices. It first explores theoretical basis of climate change-related technology transfer, with a particular focus on the differences between climate technology transfer and business-as-usual performance. The book then reviews practices of both technology supplier and user, in order to generally identify potential legal barriers and obstacles. Finally, it sheds light on China, providing a comprehensive assessment on barriers that hinder the trans-boundary transfers of low carbon technologies and need to be overcome in future. The issues concerned involve two of the most dynamic areas in current China’s lawmaking progress: environment laws and Intellectual Property laws. The book provides an in-depth analysis on China’s legislation and practices in this regard. At international level, the legal framework of climate technology transfer is examined in a systematic, prudent and constructive manner. On this basis, the book highlights potential commons, consistency and possible coordination between the UNFCCC and the WTO regime.  This book is accessible to both Chinese and international environmental law specialists. It appeals to a broad readership, including environmental scientists, economists concerned with China’s intellectual property law, foreign investment law and anyone interested in the topic: how to green intellectual property rights regime for climate technology transfer in the China context.

Pdf Law Until We Reckon: Violence, Mass Incarceration, and a Road to Repair

Pdf:Until We Reckon: Violence, Mass Incarceration, and a Road to Repair.Review Praise for Until We Reckon:One of Mashable's “17 books every activist should read in 2019”“In her first book, the founder of Brooklyn-based Common Justice convincingly attacks the conventional wisdom about violent crimes, appropriate punishment, and how to repair the criminal (in)justice system. . . . The author provides clear, specific evidence for her contention that the new conventional wisdom must be survivor-centered, accountability-based, safety-driven, and racially equitable. The case studies of restorative justice that punctuate every chapter offer undeniable proof that Common Justice's tactics are succeeding and should be more widely applied. A top-notch entry into the burgeoning incarceration debate.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)“[Sered’s] ideas, and her practical experience with the Brooklyn-based group Common Justice, struck me as both totally sensible and totally revolutionary.”—Tom Jackman, The Washington Post “The work [Sered is doing] is truly impressive and innovative. . . . [It] encompasses two seemingly contradictory threads—one is diverting violent criminals from the prison system, and the other is helping victims heal. I found it completely, radically original and generally fascinating. . . . Truly remarkable work.”—Scott Stossel, The Atlantic “Recently, a loose network of gun-crime victims, as well as men and women who’ve survived sexual assault, violent robberies, and other violations of the social contract . . . have emerged with an alternative policy vision. Among its many champions is Danielle Sered [who leads] pioneering efforts to provide community-based support to young men of color who’ve been harmed by violence . . . and those responsible for crimes.”—Sarah Stillman, The New Yorker “Danielle Sered provocatively offers and backs up a vision that actually promotes real healing for crime survivors and improves community safety. A must-read for anyone who truly wants to dismantle mass incarceration.”—Nick Turner, president, Vera Institute of Justice “A pioneer in restorative justice.”—NPR “Sered issue[s] a clarion call to take [violent crime] seriously and handle it with nuance. Sered reminds us that, if we’re serious about reducing mass incarceration, we need to grapple seriously, and safely, with people who have committed violent offenses and the survivors of their crimes.”—HuffPost Read more About the Author Danielle Sered leads the award-winning Brooklyn-based Common Justice, which develops and advances solutions to violence that meet the needs of those harmed and advance racial equity without relying on incarceration.

Pdf Law Multistate Bar Review:: Explanatory Answers to the 1998 Multistate Bar Examination (Quizmaster Point of Law)

Pdf:Multistate Bar Review:: Explanatory Answers to the 1998 Multistate Bar Examination (Quizmaster Point of Law).Detailed explanatory answers to actual questions from the 1998-1999 multistate bar exam. Explains not only Why the right answer is right, but also Why the wrong answers are wrong and How to take the bar exam. The bar examination tests legal reasoning: NONE of the four choices might be correct! Likewise, more than one answer may be correct! The examinee must choose the BEST choice of the given choices! Failing to see that fact alone costs many students their "pass": Wrong answers are less exact, less accurate, or outright wrong, as compared to the correct answer which is most accurate of given choices or the most likely argument to be accepted by the court on existing law or a good faith argument thereon. In other words, the best answer is not necessarily correct! Furthermore, the least wrong answer is still ... best! These are the actual questions asked on the bar exam which were released by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBEX). The explanations are complete, and include vital test-taking tips for the bar exam! No copyright is claimed as to the questions: the explanations to the answers were authored by Dr. Eric Engle LL.M. (Fulbright). The NCBE released those questions and retains copyright over them. Use of these questions does not consitute an endorsement by the NCBE.YOU can pass the bar. It takes discipline, determination, and curiousity. It is not rocket science. About the Author:Dr. Eric Engle, JD, DEA (Paris II), LL.M. has published dozens of law review articles in law journals around the world and authored these answers. He has earned law degrees in the US (JD), France (DEA), Germany (LL.M., Dr.Jur.).

Pdf:All Our Trials: Prisons, Policing, and the Feminist Fight to End Violence (Women, Gender, and Sexuality in American History).Review 'All Our Trials offers us a robust history of late twentieth-century radical feminist antiviolence organizing. Thuma reminds us that the activism of the present is built upon an important legacy of work that traversed movements and prison walls. If we are to build an abolitionist feminist future, we would be wise to pay attention to the antiracist queer feminist politics of these activists. We owe a debt of gratitude to them for paving the way, and to Thuma for chronicling their struggles.'--Angela Y. Davis, University of California, Santa Cruz 'All Our Trials is a tour de force. It stands among the best books on the history of modern feminist politics and represents one of the most elucidating histories of the US carceral state produced to date. Emily Thuma centers criminalized women’s ideas and organizing, providing graceful historical analysis that will undoubtedly influence current conversations about imprisonment, gender, and sexual violence. This history opens a fiercely urgent path toward an anticarceral feminist future.'--Sarah Haley, author of No Mercy Here: Gender, Punishment, and the Making of Jim Crow Modernity  'With deep compassion, Thuma offers one of the most compelling historical analyses of how feminist activism of Black, queer, and criminalized women has worked to resist the long and dangerous reach of the carceral state. All Our Trials is an important text in the growing fields of critical prison studies and anti-carceral feminism and a critical addition to activist reading lists.'--Beth Richie, author of Arrested Violence: Black Women, Violence, and America's Prison Nation'All Our Trials transforms our understanding of both the history of feminism and of the carceral state. In her deeply compelling account, Thuma documents the work of activists who centered the lives of the most marginalized in their social justice imaginary and their political agenda, producing an anticarceral feminist politics and an expansive analysis of the interconnections between interpersonal and state violence. A crucial and timely read as we wrestle with gender, race, and violence today.'--Regina Kunzel, author of Criminal Intimacy: Prison and the Uneven History of Modern American Sexuality   Read more About the Author Emily L.

Pdf:Dannemora: Two Escaped Killers, Three Weeks of Terror, and the Largest Manhunt Ever in New York State.In June 2015 two vicious convicted murderers broke out of the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, in New York's "North Country," launching the most extensive manhunt in state history. Aided by prison employee Joyce Mitchell, double murderer Richard Matt and cop-killer David Sweat slipped out of their cells, followed a network of tunnels and pipes under the 30-foot prison wall, and climbed out of a manhole to freedom.   For three weeks, the residents of local communities were virtual prisoners in their own homes as law enforcement from across the nation swept the rural wilderness near the Canadian border. The manhunt made front-page headlines - as did the prison sex scandal involving both inmates and Joyce Mitchell - and culminated in a dramatic and bloody standoff.  Now Charles A. Gardner - a lifelong resident of the community and a former prison guard who began his training at Clinton and ultimately oversaw the training of staff in 12 prisons, including Clinton - tells the whole story from an insider's point of view.

Sarge!: Cases of a Chicago Police Detective Sergeant in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s

Pdf Law Sarge!: Cases of a Chicago Police Detective Sergeant in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s

Pdf:Sarge!: Cases of a Chicago Police Detective Sergeant in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s.Sarge! is a fascinating memoir by the late Chicago Police Detective Sergeant John A. DiMaggio, one of the most decorated officers on the force during a career that spanned the years 1957 to 1991. Among his awards are two Superintendent's Awards of Valor, Mayor Richard J. Daley's Praiseworthy Acknowledgment Plaque for Exceptional Act of Bravery Involving Risk of Life, a Presidential Citation of Appreciation, the Illinois Police Association Award of Valor, and many more.Upon his retirement in 1991, DiMaggio wrote a fascinating account of his work as a cop. The manuscript languished among his personal effects until after his death in 2008, after which his family decided to resurrect it, spruce it up, and submit it for publication. It turns out that he was an excellent word craftsman and storyteller; in fact, he was no stranger to writing - for many years he wrote the "Ask Sarge" column for the Mystery Writers of America Midwest Chapter newsletter.Told in a conversational, "regular guy" voice in episodic fashion, Sarge! reveals to the listener what it was really like to be a cop. The book in many ways takes the form of a prose treatment of a weekly television police drama.DiMaggio takes the listener back to the decades, such as the turbulent 1960s, when the police department was making a painful transition from "old school" to modernization. The author describes the legendary riots that occurred in Chicago after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. He illustrates the integration of minorities into the department and how that played out. He also goes into famous cases of corruption and the politics of navigating such a large department. One of the "set pieces" of the book is the story of how DiMaggio, as part of the "Three Musketeers" - a trio that included two detectives who were close friends - investigated a series terrifying slasher attacks on women that occurred in the city in the mid-70s. The case became one of the police department's most memorable. Among the other cases detailed in the book include how DiMaggio found himself entering the home of a crazed young man holding hostages with a shotgun; the investigation of the discovery of a headless corpse; the take-down of the Chicago "Mad Bomber"; how an anonymous audio tape provided clues to the identities of armed robbers; and the manhunt for a cop killer.

Pdf:Sterling Test Prep Bar Exam Review MBE Essentials: Governing Law Outlines.From the Author This book was developed through an analysis of prior MBE exams to identify questions that are best able to predict success or failure on the bar examination. The outlines describe principles of substantive law, which most often govern the correct answer to most questions on each section of the 2019 MBE.  2019 MBE Essentials: Governing Law describes the principles of substantive law, which most often governs the correct answers to Multistate Bar Examination Questions.  The performance of candidates on individual questions has been correlated with success or failure on the bar examination. Through an analysis of these statistics, we have been able to identify those questions that are best able to predict success or failure on the bar examination and put together the outlines of laws that govern those questions.  Students should learn these important governing law principles to determine the answers to the questions on the 2019 MBE.  These rules of law will likely determine the answers to more than half of the questions on each section of the MBE.   Knowing these principles helps you decide between two tough choices; it is important to have this knowledge to get a passing score on the exam. Used books may have outdated content. We make content updates regularly based on customers' comments, editorial input, and the latest test changes.

Pdf:The (Secret) Formula for Passing the Bar Exam: Writing Winning Essays and Other Successful Strategies for the Biggest Exam of Your Life.A NOTE TO THE CONSUMER: I've watched the sale of my book tank ever since Dzilizi came out with her 3 star review in which she characterized the "secret formula" contained in my book as learning the law, studying the law, and writing it down. And it's a shame because faithfully applying the secret formula will improve a lawyer's writing at any point in their career. To characterize the "secret formula" to be learn the law, study the law, write it down is both misleading and fraudulent. A brief perusal of the table of contents shows that the formula is contained in Chapter 5, and I guarantee that it does not tell the reader to learn the law, study the law, write it all down. Chapter 5 *does* contain a formula for lawyer-like writing and if it does not I will personally pay you back twice what you paid for my book.

This is important for test day look-up since you will have access to the MPEP during the exam. Lastly, this type of interactive study process has been proven to be far more effective than simply reading, and watching or listening to lectures.

The Law of Good People: Challenging States' Ability to Regulate Human Behavior

Pdf Law The Law of Good People: Challenging States' Ability to Regulate Human Behavior

Pdf:The Law of Good People: Challenging States' Ability to Regulate Human Behavior.Review 'A fascinating, comprehensive exploration of the complexities of human motivations - and of how to get good people to do really good things. Opens up new vistas in behavioral science, and also in public policy. Highly recommended.' Cass R. Sunstein, Harvard University, Massachusetts'More than 40 years ago, economics revolutionized legal theory by analyzing the incentive effects of laws on people who are rationally self-interested. In recent years, cognitive psychology revolutionized law and economics by showing how legal incentives affect real people who are psychological, not purely rational. In The Law of Good People, Yuval Feldman provides a fresh perspective on laws aimed at motivating good people, as opposed to just deterring bad people. His creativity and knowledge of law, economics, and psychology will make readers rethink the incentive effects of laws and current theories of law and economics.' Robert Cooter, Berkeley Law School'In the mid-twentieth century, Hannah Arendt was criticized for speaking about the banality of evil in describing Adolf Eichmann, and even today Stanley Milgram's experiments showing the ease of ordering people to harm others is difficult to comprehend. Since then, psychological evidence has accumulated, revealing the undeniable daily harms that emerge from the unintended actions of 'good' people. In this excellent book, Yuval Feldman brings all the best research to those interested in imagining the good society. He admirably polishes the grimy results of behavioral science experiments until they shine with solutions for political and legal reform. It is rare to see a scholar write with the broad sweep Feldman does, and even rarer to have one so effectively persuade that central concepts in the law - property, conflict of interest, discrimination - cannot remain in their present form if only we would confront the evidence already before us.' Mahzarin R. Banaji, Harvard University, Massachusetts'Should the law target the infamous Mr Hyde? No, says Yuval Feldman, who demonstrates why most individuals are not hard-nosed Mr Hydes. In fact, the law should be much more concerned with Dr Jekyll, who could turn into Mr Hyde at all times, but who will nevertheless convince himself that he remains the good-natured Dr Jekyll. In short, motivational plasticity, as Feldman explains, is a much bigger normative problem than merely being a 'bad person' in the first place. This book not only alerts legal academia to this idea, but also carefully discusses the implications for legal analysis and design.' Christoph Engel, Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods'This book is the first to introduce the large and heterogeneous body of work on behavioral ethics to the world of law and legal policy. Drawing in part on the author's own pioneering experimental work, the book moves beyond the reigning enforcement-based approach with its focus on cognition and deliberation, and takes greater account of complex motivations, especially of people with a self-conception as being a good person. Feldman provides an important first installment on evaluating law and related interventions in the light of this promising new paradigm.' Henry Smith, Harvard Law School'Weaving in disparate threads of economics and psychology, Professor Feldman delivers an exciting new approach to our understanding of ethical behavior. The implications of this work will influence our understanding of how to regulate good and evil for many years to come.' Jeffrey Rachlinski, Cornell Law School'By bridging the gap between new findings of behavioral ethics and traditional methods used to modify behavior, Professor Feldman proposes a 'law of good people' that should be read by scholars and policymakers around the world. A work of simply brilliant scholarship, The Law of Good People is a fully engaging, thought-provoking, informed and informative study that is unreservedly recommended for community and academic library Political Science, Judicial, and Contemporary Sociology collections and supplemental studies lists.' Library Bookwatch'In The Law of Good People: Challenging States' Ability to Regulate Human Behavior, Feldman's goal is to 'create a new branch of scholarship that focuses on the rule of law in a world populated by individuals with different levels of awareness of their own unethicality'. ... The Law of Good People is a foundational work and as such it is a springboard rather than an ending. Feldman points to a host of thought-provoking questions in need of further research and deliberations, such as, 'How blind is a blind spot from a legal perspective of responsibility?' and 'Can we know ex ante in what mode of reasoning people will be when making a decision about the law?'. Many young scholars, and quite a few older ones, will find this book highly stimulating, inviting new thinking, and new lines of research as well as legal policy.' Amitay Ezioni, Institute for Communitarian Policy Studies'Feldman is rightly worried about the methodological limitations of behavioural ethics, and he is also right that there is nowhere near enough work to be confident about the underlying mechanisms behind these problems and the solutions to them. Many studies are small and experimental. Quirkiness is fun, but magic circle firms are not about to start building difficult-decisions suites stuffed with cuddly toys. Yet in these limitations is the central challenge: can ecologically realistic, methodologically robust, replicated studies develop our understanding of behavioural ethics further? Feldman and his collaborator's own studies are a rich resource here. Can regulators, or even lawyers and compliance managers, be encouraged to experiment with behavioural interventions? After all, lawyers need to be interested in both how rules work and how people behave ethically if they are to do their job effectively. Feldman's book shows us how important this could be.' Richard Moorhead, The Journal of Things We Like (Lots) Read more Book Description This book argues that existing enforcement strategies are not suitable for addressing the wrongdoing of 'good people' who are not fully aware of their misconduct. The book connects the theoretical puzzles raised by behavioral ethics to the vast literature on instrument choice and the various tools that policymakers can adopt to modify behavior.

Pdf Law Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy

Pdf:Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy.Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize in History Winner of the 2017 Bancroft Prize National Book Award finalist Los Angeles Times book prize finalist New York Times notable book for 2016 Named a best book of the year by the Boston Globe, Newsweek, Kirkus, and Publishers Weekly The first definitive history of the infamous 1971 Attica prison uprising, the state's violent response, and the victims' decades-long quest for justice. On September 9, 1971, nearly 1,300 prisoners took over the Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York to protest years of mistreatment. Holding guards and civilian employees hostage, the prisoners negotiated with officials for improved conditions during the four long days and nights that followed. On September 13, the state abruptly sent hundreds of heavily armed troopers and correction officers to retake the prison by force. Their gunfire killed 39 men - hostages as well as prisoners - and severely wounded more than 100 others. In the ensuing hours, weeks, and months, troopers and officers brutally retaliated against the prisoners. And, ultimately, New York State authorities prosecuted only the prisoners, never once bringing charges against the officials involved in the retaking and its aftermath, and neglecting to provide support to the survivors and the families of the men who had been killed. Drawing from more than a decade of extensive research, historian Heather Ann Thompson sheds new light on every aspect of the uprising and its legacy, giving voice to all those who took part in this 45-year fight for justice: prisoners, former hostages, families of the victims, lawyers and judges, and state officials and members of law enforcement. Blood in the Water is the searing and indelible account of one of the most important civil rights stories of the last century.

If You're in My Office, It's Already Too Late: A Divorce Lawyer's Guide to Staying Together

Pdf Law If You're in My Office, It's Already Too Late: A Divorce Lawyer's Guide to Staying Together

Pdf:If You're in My Office, It's Already Too Late: A Divorce Lawyer's Guide to Staying Together.In this pertinent audiobook, hard-hitting divorce lawyer James Sexton shares his insights and wisdom from the frontlines of divorce to keep you out of his office and improve on your relationship If You're In My Office, It's Already Too Late. James Sexton knows this. After dealing with over 1000 clients whose marriages have dissolved over everything from an ill-advised threesome with the nanny to the uneven division of carpool duties, he also knows all of the what-not-to-dos for couples who want to build - and consistently work to preserve - a lasting, fulfilling relationship. Described by former clients as a "courtroom gunslinger" and "the sociopath you want on your side", Sexton tells the unvarnished truth about relationships, diving straight into the most common marital problems. These usually derive from dishonest - or nonexistent - communication. Even when the alleged reason for separation is one spouse's new "personal trainer", there's usually a communication problem that predates the fitness kick. Symptom and root cause get confused all the time. Sexton has spent his career working with spouses-to-be-no-longer. Reverse-engineering a relationship can help to identify and fix what does not work. Ever feel like you're holding back criticism of your spouse because you just can't have that fight right now? Sexton will tell you to "Hit Send Now". Maybe you aren't as adventurous as you used to be, or need some you-time, but for some reason, it seems weird or exhausting to change up the routine now. Sexton knows where that mentality leads and offers viable alternative paths to take. Though he deals constantly with the heartbreak of others, he still believes in romance and the transformative power of love. This audiobook is his opportunity to use what he has learned to help couples that aren't so far gone get back on track.

Point Made, Second Edition: How to Write Like the Nation's Top Advocates

Pdf Law Point Made, Second Edition: How to Write Like the Nation's Top Advocates

Pdf:Point Made, Second Edition: How to Write Like the Nation's Top Advocates.With Point Made, legal writing expert Ross Guberman throws a life preserver to attorneys, who are under more pressure than ever to produce compelling prose. What is the strongest opening for a motion or brief? How to draft winning headings? How to tell a persuasive story when the record is dry and dense? The answers are "more science than art," says Guberman, who has analyzed stellar arguments by distinguished attorneys to develop step-by-step instructions for achieving the results you want.The author takes an empirical approach, drawing heavily on the writings of the nation's 50 most influential lawyers, including Barack Obama, John Roberts, Elena Kagan, Ted Olson, and David Boies. Their strategies, demystified and broken down into specific, learnable techniques, become a detailed writing guide full of practical models. In FCC v. Fox, for example, Kathleen Sullivan conjures the potentially dangerous, unintended consequences of finding for the other side (the "Why Should I Care?" technique). Arguing against allowing the FCC to continue fining broadcasters that let the "F-word" slip out, she highlights the chilling effect these fines have on America's radio and TV stations, "discouraging live programming altogether, with attendant loss to valuable and vibrant programming that has long been part of American culture."Each chapter of Point Made focuses on a typically tough challenge, providing a strategic roadmap and practical tips along with annotated examples of how prominent attorneys have resolved that challenge in varied trial and appellate briefs. Short examples and explanations with engaging titles - "Brass Tacks", "Talk to Yourself", "Russian Doll" - deliver weighty materials with a light tone, making the guidelines easy to remember and apply.In addition to all-new examples from the original 50 advocates, this second edition introduces eight new superstar lawyers, from Solicitor General Don Verrilli, Deanne Maynard, Larry Robbins, and Lisa Blatt to Joshua Rosencranz, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Judy Clarke, and Sri Srinvasan, now a DC Circuit Judge. Ross Guberman also provides provocative new examples from the Affordable Care Act wars, the same-sex marriage fight, and many other recent high-profile cases. Considerably more commentary on the examples is included, along with dozens of style and grammar tips interspersed throughout. Also, for those who seek to improve their advocacy skills and for those who simply need a step-by-step guide to making a good brief better, the book concludes with an all-new set of 50 writing challenges corresponding to the 50 techniques.

Pdf:Get the Truth: Former CIA Officers Teach You How to Persuade Anyone to Tell All.Getting someone to tell the truth is an essential skill that very few people possess. In the boardroom, the classroom, or our own homes, every day we interact with others and try to get the truth from them. People are often untruthful out of fear of negative consequences associated with divulging information. But if a person is made to forget the long-term outcomes, he or she can be influenced to disclose sensitive information that's being withheld. The aim is to encourage the person to remain in short-term thinking mode, shifting focus away from the long-term ramifications of telling the truth. As former CIA agents and best-selling authors of Spy the Lie, Philip Houston, Mike Floyd, and Susan Carnicero are among the world's best at recognizing deceptive behavior and eliciting the truth from even the most accomplished liars. Get the Truth is a step-by-step guide that empowers readers to elicit the truth from others. It also chronicles the fascinating story of how the authors used a methodology Houston developed to elicit the truth in the counterterrorism and criminal investigation realms and how these techniques can be applied to our daily lives.

Pdf Law Reasonable Doubts: The O.J. Simpson Case and the Criminal Justice System

Pdf:Reasonable Doubts: The O.J. Simpson Case and the Criminal Justice System.Alan Dershowitz, one of the foremost legal thinkers of our time, explores a series of questions raised by the most watched criminal trial in American history. Through this brilliant, eye-opening account of the O.J. Simpson case, he exposes the realities of the criminal justice system in this country. Here, Professor Dershowitz examines the issues and social forces - media, money, gender, and race - that shape the criminal justice system in America today. Among the fascinating questions raised: Was this really a case of circumstantial evidence? Did Simpson's wealth "buy" the acquittal? How could one of the longest trials in the history of America's judicial system produce a verdict after less than four hours of jury deliberation? Reasonable Doubts is a work of lasting importance; it will force us to rethink our assumptions, not only about the case itself but about the strengths - and weaknesses - of the criminal justice syste. This book is for the many thoughtful observers who sincerely and understandably believe that O.J. Simpson murdered Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, and that the jury's verdict of not guilty was therefore a miscarriage of justice.

Douglas' 25-year career in the FBI Investigative Support Unit, where he used psychological profiling to delve into the minds of the country's most notorious serial killers and criminals - the basis for the upcoming Netflix original series. In chilling detail, the legendary Mindhunter takes us behind the scenes of some of his most gruesome, fascinating, and challenging cases - and into the darkest recesses of our worst nightmares. During his 25-year career with the Investigative Support Unit, Special Agent John Douglas became a legendary figure in law enforcement, pursuing some of the most notorious and sadistic serial killers of our time: the man who hunted prostitutes for sport in the woods of Alaska, the Atlanta child murderer, and Seattle's Green River killer, the case that nearly cost Douglas his life. As the model for Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, Douglas has confronted, interviewed, and studied scores of serial killers and assassins, including Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, and Ed Gein, who dressed himself in his victims' peeled skin.

Pdf:The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town.Number-one New York Times best seller John Grisham's first work of nonfiction: a true crime story that will terrify anyone who believes in the presumption of innocence.Soon to be a Netflix original documentary series "Both an American tragedy and [Grisham's] strongest legal thriller yet, all the more gripping because it happens to be true." (Entertainment Weekly) In the town of Ada, Oklahoma, Ron Williamson was going to be the next Mickey Mantle. But on his way to the Big Leagues, Ron stumbled, his dreams broken by drinking, drugs, and women. Then, on a winter night in 1982, not far from Ron's home, a young cocktail waitress named Debra Sue Carter was savagely murdered. The investigation led nowhere. Until, on the flimsiest evidence, it led to Ron Williamson. The washed-up small-town hero was charged, tried, and sentenced to death - in a trial littered with lying witnesses and tainted evidence that would shatter a man's already broken life, and let a true killer go free. Impeccably researched, grippingly told, filled with 11th-hour drama, this audio edition of The Innocent Man plays like an edge-of-your-seat legal thriller. It is a book no American can afford to miss. "Grisham has crafted a legal thriller every bit as suspenseful and fast-paced as his best-selling fiction."
