The sonnets by William Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition focuses on the Sonnets as poetry - sometimes strikingly individual poems, but often subtly interlinked in thematic, imagistic and other groupings. Gwynne Evans and Anthony Hecht also address the many questions that cast a veil of mystery over the genesis of the Sonnets: to what extent are they autobiographical? What is the nature of the 'love', strongly expressed, between the 'poet', the 'youth' and the 'Dark Lady'? Can they, apart from the poet, be Identified? Who is the 'rival poet'? When were the Sonnets written and in what order? What were the circumstances surrounding their publication?

Japan : the precarious future by Frank Baldwin( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Japan: The Precarious Future, a group of distinguished scholars of Japanese economics, politics, law, and society examine the various roads that might lie ahead for this East Asian nation. Will Japan face a continued erosion of global economic and political power, particularly as China's outlook improves exponentially? Or will it find a way to protect its status as an important player in global affairs? Contributors explore issues such as national security, political leadership, manufacturing prowess, diplomacy, population decline, and gender equality in politics and the workforce, all in an effort to chart the possible futures for Japan. Both a roadmap for change and a look at how Japan arrived at its present situation, this collection of thought-provoking analyses is essential for understanding the current landscape and future prospects of this world power. -- from back cover
The Supreme Court in the intimate lives of Americans : birth, sex, marriage, childrearing, and death by Howard Ball( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2003. Personal rights, such as the right to procreate--or not--and the right to die generate endless debate. This book maps out the legal, political, and ethical issues swirling around personal rights. Howard Ball shows how the Supreme Court has grappled with the right to reproduce and to abort, and takes on the issue of auto-euthanasia and assisted suicide, from Karen Ann Quinlan through Kevorkian and just recently to the Florida case of the woman who was paralyzed by a gunshot from her mother and who had the plug pulled on herself. For the last half of the twe
Habeas corpus : rethinking the great writ of liberty by Eric M Freedman( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Habeas Corpus is the process by which state prisoners--particularly those on death row--appeal to federal courts to have their convictions overturned. Its proper role in our criminal justice system has always been hotly contested, especially in the wake of 1996 legislation curtailing the ability of prisoners to appeal their sentences. In this timely volume, Eric M. Freedman reexamines four of the Supreme Court's most important habeas corpus rulings: one by Chief Justice John Marshall in 1807 concerning Aaron Burr's conspiracy, two arising from the traumatic national events of the 1915 Leo Frank
The counter-revolution of 1776 : slave resistance and the origins of the United States of America by Gerald Horne( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The successful 1776 revolt against British rule in North America has been hailed almost universally as a great step forward for humanity. But the Africans then living in the colonies overwhelmingly sided with the British. In this trailblazing book, Gerald Horne shows that in the prelude to 1776, the abolition of slavery seemed all but inevitable in London, delighting Africans as much as it outraged slaveholders, and sparking the colonial revolt. Prior to 1776, anti-slavery sentiments were deepening throughout Britain and in the Caribbean, rebellious Africans were in revolt. For European colonists in America, the major threat to their security was a foreign invasion combined with an insurrection of the enslaved. It was a real and threatening possibility that London would impose abolition throughout the colonies--a possibility the founding fathers feared would bring slave rebellions to their shores. To forestall it, they went to war. The so-called Revolutionary War, Horne writes, was in part a counter-revolution, a conservative movement that the founding fathers fought in order to preserve their right to enslave others. The Counter-Revolution of 1776 brings us to a radical new understanding of the traditional heroic creation myth of the United States."

Keywords for media studies( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Essential vocabulary of Media Studies Keywords for Media Studies introduces and aims to advance the field of critical media studies by tracing, defining, and problematizing its established and emergent terminology. The book historicizes thinking about media and society, whether that means noting a long history of "new media," or tracing how understandings of media "power" vary across time periods and knowledge formations. Bringing together an impressive group of established scholars from television studies, film studies, sound studies, games studies, and more, each of the 65 essays in the volume focuses on a critical concept, from "fan" to "industry," and "celebrity" to "surveillance." Keywords for Media Studies is an essential tool that introduces key terms, research traditions, debates, and their histories, and offers a sense of the new frontiers and questions emerging in the field of media studies
In defense of tort law by Thomas H Koenig( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Late night comedians and journalists eagerly seized upon the case of an elderly woman who sued McDonald's when she spilled hot coffee in her lap as a prime example of frivolous litigation. But as Rustad and Koenig argue, cases such as these are an incomplete and misleading characterization of tort law. Corporations have successfully waged a public relations battle to create the impression that most lawsuits are spurious, when in fact the opposite is true: tort law plays a crucial role in protecting consumers from dangerous and sometimes life-threatening hazards. Without legal remedies, corpora

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By tracing the birth and growth of enduring ideas in criminology, as well as by recognizing historical patterns in the interplay of politics and science, Rafter offers ways to evaluate new theories of the criminal brain that may radically reshape ideas about the causes of criminal behavior.

Defending pornography : free speech, sex, and the fight for women's rights by Nadine Strossen( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The newest attacks on the First Amendment and on free expression have come from a vocal and influential segment of the feminist movement that has launched a successful - and puritanical - crusade against "pornography" as the root of discrimination and violence against women." "But, as Nadine Strossen, president of the American Civil Liberties Union, forcefully argues, this view of sexuality as inherently dangerous does profound damage to human rights in general, and to women's rights in particular. In Defending Pornography, Strossen shows that, since the late 1970s, a new and startling alliance has been fused between "procensorship" feminists, most notably Catharine MacKinnon and Andrea Dworkin, and conservatives, many of whom oppose women's rights causes. Together they are campaigning against a wide range of sexually oriented expression, including not only art and literature, but also materials concerning abortion, contraception, AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, sexism, and sexual orientation." "One of America's most visible and articulate advocates of both feminism and free speech, Strossen is in the vanguard of an increasingly vocal group of feminist women who adamantly oppose any effort to censor sexual expression. Women's rights, Strossen demonstrates, are far more endangered by censorship than by sexual words or images." "Strossen eloquently argues that women do not have to choose between speech and equality, between dignity and sexuality, between safety and "our freedoms to read, think, speak, sing, write, paint, dance, dream, photograph, film, and fantasize as we wish." Offering a feminist's unique perspective on the history of obscenity laws, she shows that censorship has long been - and continues to be - used as a tool to repress information vital to women's equality, health, and reproductive autonomy."

Mahābhārata by Vyāsa( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In one of the most famous passages in Maha·bharata, Dur·yodhana, the heroic but flawed king of the Kauravas, meets his end when he is dishonorably defeated in battle by his arch-enemy, Bhima. Framing a fascinating account of the sacred sites along the river Sarasvati, the duel poignantly portrays the downfall of a once great hero in the face of a new order governed by Krishna, in which the warrior code is brushed aside in order to ensure the predestined triumph of the Pandavas."--Publisher's website
Rape and the culture of the courtroom by Andrew E Taslitz( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In dit boek tracht de auteur aan te tonen waarom advocaten, rechters en politie de hervormde wetten in verband met verkrachtingszaken trachten te omzeilen en waarom er meer nadruk komt op het karakter van het slachtoffer in plaats van op het gedrag van de dader. De auteur stelt dat het falen van de hervormingen ligt in het taalgebruik van de advocaten en de culturele verhalen waarop ze zich baseren om het slachtoffer te domineren in de rechtszaal. Culturele verkrachtingsverhalen van de schaarsgeklede vrouw 'die er om vroeg' liggen aan de basis van vele onbewuste vooroordelen van jury's. Hij verbindt deze verhalen met waargebeurde en bekende zaken als die van Mike Tyson en de Glen Ridge verkrachtingszaken, om aan te tonen hoe deze verkrachtingsstereotypen gebruikt worden door de verdediging om hun cliënten vrij te pleiten. De schrijver toont aan hoe woordkeuze, toon en linguïstische tactieken werken om de geloofwaardigheid van het slachtoffer te ondermijnen
