Judge as Political Theorist Princeton University Press

The Judge as Political Theorist examines opinions by constitutional courts in liberal democracies to better understand the logic and nature of constitutional review. David Robertson argues that the constitutional judge's role is nothing like that of the legislator or chief executive, or even the ordinary judge. Rather, constitutional judges spell out to society the implications--on the ground--of the moral and practical commitments embodied in the nation's constitution. Constitutional review, in other words, is a form of applied political theory. Robertson takes an in-depth look at constitutional decision making in Germany, France, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Canada, and South Africa, with comparisons throughout to the United States, where constitutional review originated. He also tackles perhaps the most vexing problem in constitutional law today--how and when to limit the rights of citizens in order to govern. As traditional institutions of moral authority have lost power, constitutional judges have stepped into the breach, radically altering traditional understandings of what courts can and should do. Robertson demonstrates how constitutions are more than mere founding documents laying down the law of the land, but increasingly have become statements of the values and principles a society seeks to embody. Constitutional judges, in turn, see it as their mission to transform those values into political practice and push for state and society to live up to their ideals.

The most corrupt judge in US history. A young investigator with a secret informant. The electrifying new thriller. Lacy Stoltz never expected to be in the firing line. Investigating judicial misconduct by Florida's one thousand judges, her cases so far have been relatively unexciting. That's until she meets Greg Myers, an indicted lawyer with an assumed name, who has an extraordinary tale to tell. Myers is representing a whistle blower who knows of a judge involved in organised crime. Along with her gangster associates this judge has facilitated the building of a casino on an Indian reservation. At least two people who opposed the scheme are dead. Since the casino was built, the judge has made several fortunes off undeclared winnings. She owns property around the world, hires private jets to take her where she wishes, and her secret vaults are overflowing with rare books, art and jewels. No one has a clue what she's been doing - until now. Under Florida law, those who help the state recover illegally acquired assets stand to gain a large percentage of them. Myers and his whistle blower friend could make millions. But first they need Lacy to start an investigation. Is she ready to pit herself against the most corrupt judge in American history, a judge whose associates think nothing of murder? 'The best thriller writer alive' Ken Follett

What American Editors Said about the Ten Million Dollar Libel Suit Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from What American Editors Said About the Ten Million Dollar Libel Suit: Editorial Comment in American Press on the Lawsuit Brought in the Name of the City of Chicago Against the Chicago Tribune In the following pages will be found the views of the American press on the suit for ten million dollars damages brought against The Chicago Tribune by the corporation of the City of Chicago at the instance of the Thompson administration. This suit was a novelty in American law, being founded on the theory that because a municipal corporation holds property, makes contracts, employs credit and carries on business, it is entitled to bring action like a private corporation, for libelous publication. To this suit the Tribune filed demurrer chiefly on the ground that a municipality is a political agency, an agency of government, and that to permit a suit for civil damages for libel would be infringement upon the right of free speech and free press. On this ground Judge Harry M. Fisher, of the Circuit Court of Cook County, sustained the demurrer in a notable opinion, widely quoted, as will appear in the following editorial discussion of the case. From this discussion it will be observed that virtually the entire press of the United States, to say nothing of several of the leading newspapers of Great Britain, recognized the importance of the suit as a recrudescence of the long continued effort of governmental authority to paralyze criticism, an effort beginning with the Star Chamber and ending with the thorough establishment of political freedom in the American republic. The suit is an anomaly, without precedent in American law, and as Judge Fisher remarked, is "not in harmony with the genius, spirit and objects of our institutions.

Brief Outline of the Life of Henry Clay (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Brief Outline of the Life of Henry Clay It is an evidence of the goodness of his heart that, in the privacy of the domestic circle, surrounded by those to whom he can unbosom himself, nothing so delights him as to recur to the scenes, the labors, the incidents, and the enjoyments of his boyhood; anecdotes of which he often relates with infinite humor and zest. This feeling gushes forth in his speech at Hanover, on the 10th of July, 1840, which he then visited for the first time after some forty-three years' absence. On that interesting occasion, surrounded by nearly the whole population of the county, who had assembled to welcome one of whom they had heard so much, and was so proud as a native of their county, Mr. Clay said: - "I have come here to the county of my nativity, in the spirit of a pilgrim, to meet, perhaps for the last time, the companions and the descendants of the companions of my youth. - Wherever we roam, in whatever climate or land we are cast by the accidents of human life, beyond the mountains or beyond the occean, in the legislative halls of the country, or in the retreats and shades of private life, our hearts turn with an irresistible instinct to the cherished spot which ushered us into existence. And we dwell with delightful associations on the recollection of the streams in which, during our boyish days, we bathed, and the fountains at which we drank; the pine fields, the hills and the valleys where we sported, and the friends who shared the enjoyments with us. - Alas! too many of these friends of mine have gone whither we must all shortly go, and the presence here of the small remnant left behind attests both our loss and our early attachment. I would greatly prefer, my friends, to employ the time which this visit affords in friendly and familiar conversation on the virtues of our departed companions, and on the scenes and adventures of our younger days; but the expectation which prevails, and the state of our beloved country, impose on me the obligation of touching on topics less congenial with the feelings of my heart, but possessing higher public interest." The farm which had belonged to his father was small, and its cultivation, which was continued by his mother, with young Harry's assistance, for several years, afforded the family a scanty subsistence. But the labor performed on that piece of land, sterile as it was, undoubtedly laid the foundation of that strong and vigorous constitution which has enabled Mr. Clay to perform such extraordinary labor through a long life of professional and public service, and to preserve unimpaired his mental and physical vigor. It also gave him a knowledge of farming and a taste for rural occupations, which have grown with his growth and strengthened with his years. "There is not," said a gentleman to me, who for many years has been his neighbor and friend, "there is not a better farmer in the western country than Mr. Clay; and there is no better judge of cattle, horses, and stock generally: nor one who manages his farm to better advantage."

Over the Pass (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Over the Pass Here time was as nothing; here sunset and sunrise were as incidents of an uncalendared, everlasting day; here chaotic grandeur was that of the earth's crust when it cooled after the last convulsive movement of genesis. In all the region about the Galeria Pass the silence of the dry Arizona air seemed luminous and eternal. Whoever climbed to the crotch of that V, cut jagged against the sky for distances yet unreckoned by tourist folders, might have the reward of pitching the tents of his imagination at the gateway of the clouds. Early on a certain afternoon he would have noted to the eastward a speck far out on a vast basin of sand which was enclosed by a rim of tumbling mountains. Continued observation at long range would have shown the speck to be moving almost imperceptibly, with what seemed the impertinence of infinitesimal life in that dead world; and, eventually, it would have taken the form of a man astride a pony. The man was young, fantastically young if you were to judge by his garb, a flamboyant expression of the romantic cowboy style which might have served as a sensational exhibit in a shop-window. In place of the conventional blue wool shirt was one of the dark blue silk. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Stalking, Threatening, and Attacking Public Figures Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Public figures require attention, whether from a constituency who votes them in or out of office, shareholders who decide their economic benefit to the corporation, or fans who judge their performances. However, on the periphery of this normal attention resides a very real risk; that of a much smaller group of individuals who lack the ability to discriminate between their own private fantasies and the figure's public behavior. They may be personally insulted by perceived betrayal, fanatically in love due to a perceived affectionate or sexual invitation, or simply preoccupied with the daily life of the public figure. Such individuals may fixate and do nothing more. Others communicate or approach in a disturbing way. A few will threaten. And on rare occasions, one will breach the public figure's security perimeter and attack. Stalking, Threatening, and Attacking Public Figures is a comprehensive survey of the current knowledge about stalking, violence risk, and threat management towards public figures. With contributions from forensic psychologists and psychiatrists, clinicians, researchers, attorneys, profilers, and current and former law enforcement enforcement professionals, this book is the first of its kind, international in scope, and rich in both depth and complexity. The book is divided into three sections which, in turn, focus upon defining, explaining, and risk managing this increasingly complex global reality. Chapters include detailed case studies, analyses of quantitative data, reflections from attachment theory and psychoanalytic thought, descriptions of law enforcement and protective organization activities, mental health and psychiatric categorizations and understandings, consideration of risk assessment models and variables, victim perspectives, and others.

Excerpt: ... of annihilation. When the Requiem was played at the Trocadéro, the audience was greatly impressed and filed out slowly. They did not say, "What a masterpiece!" but "What an orchestra leader!" Nowadays people go to see a conductor direct the orchestra just as they go to hear a tenor, and they arrogate to themselves the right to judge the conductors as they do the tenors. But what a fine sport it is! The qualities of an orchestra conductor which the public appreciates are his elegance, his gestures, his precision, and the expressiveness of his mimicry, all of which are more often directed at the audience than at the orchestra. But all these things are of secondary consideration. What makes up an orchestra conductor's worth are the excellence of execution he obtains from the musicians and the perfect interpretation of the author's meaning--which the audience does not understand. If such an important detail as the author's meaning is obscured and slighted, if a work is disfigured by absurd movements and by an expression which is entirely different from what the author wanted, the public may be dazzled and an execrable conductor, provided his poses are good, may fascinate his audience and be praised to the skies. Formerly the conductor never saluted his audience. The understanding was that the work and not the conductor was applauded. The Italians and Germans changed all that. Lamoureux was the first to introduce this exotic custom in France. The public was a little surprised at first, but they soon got used to it. In Italy the conductor comes on the stage with the artists to salute the audience. There is nothing more laughable than to see him, as the last note of an opera dies away, jump down from his stand and run like mad to reach the stage in time. The excellence of the work of English choristers has been highly and justly praised. Perhaps it would be fairer not to praise them so unreservedly when we...

Excerpt from A Beau Sabreur: Maurice De Saxe, Marshal, of France: His Loves, His, Laurels, and His Times; 1696 1750 A Taste for literary exhumations is one of the distinctive features of the literature of the period. Nothing, to judge from the number of biographies and memoirs that are constantly being published, seems to afford the reading public more entertainment than to shake the dust from old parchments and the private correspondence of the famous dead, to sit down, so to speak, on the threshold of a vanished age and peer at the passions, morals, and customs of times that are no more. Thanks to the indefatigable efforts to satisfy the craving for historical and psychological revelations, many new and interesting facts have been unearthed, and not a few personalities, formerly misunderstood or despised, have been placed on pedestals that ignorance or malice had hitherto denied them; while others have, in their turn, been removed from the niches they had long and undeservingly occupied. How many kings and statesmen, cardinals and soldiers, philosophers and adventurers have been resurrected from the vast cemetery of History in which their memory is buried, and paraded for our edification! And what swarms of women are likewise continually flitting past us! About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

In The Imp in the Bottle, the Quigley Family faces two unusual challenges. In a family like the Quigleys it is easy to develop a sense that you're not up to the challenge thrown down by the older members. This feeling is widely felt by the younger Quigleys but, one by one, they face their "trials" with bravery and wit. Nothing is as important to their method of coping with demons and creatures out of myth than a good sense of humor. In The Imp in the Bottle, two of the Quigleys face trials: Gordon MacKinnon and Billy Quigley-Arbuthnott, known in his previous life as Beelzebub. Gordon proves to be a tempting target since he's feeling inadequate when he compares himself to his formidable cousins. The demons vying for the throne in Hell judge him to be ready for the picking. Will he measure up to his cousins or fail the test. Further south, Billy has been left behind when he parents journeyed to Russia to excavate some children's mummies. To keep him busy, his grandfather, Roarke, suggests he start his own archaeological dig on the edge of the moors. The idea is accepted with alacrity but Billy gets more than he bargained for. Dreams of a distant past haunt his dreams as he follows in the footsteps of another "dreamer", his cousin Mawdie. Will Billy handle himself as well as his beloved cousin?
