A Vision of American Law : Judging Law, Literature, and the Stories We Tell, Hardback Book

A Vision of American Law : Judging Law, Literature, and the Stories We Tell Hardback

Description

Throughout history, works of literature have helped to shape public discussion of social, legal, and political issues.

In this book, Barry R. Schaller draws on examples from American literature in presenting an analysis of the legal aspects of several major problems facing our society.

After identifying the key legal relationships in society, the book focuses on problems of violence, loss of authority, diminished faith in the American dream of progress, and the challenges posed by immense social and technological change.

The author offers a set of standards to serve as a guide to effective judicial decision making and to assist the public in evaluating the soundness of those decisions.
