Blindfolds off : judges on how they decide by Joel Cohen( file )
9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 598 libraries worldwide
I have selected specific (generally, well-known) cases for the free-flowing dialogues that follow from the thousands of cases to which these 13 (alphabetized) judges have been assigned?those that have raised critical questions about justice, policy, precedent, the law, and the way in which the currents and tides of their lives and of our ever-changing society have influenced those rulings". -- PREFACE
Broken scales : reflections on injustice by Joel Cohen( Book )
3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 148 libraries worldwide
"However rare, some injustices are 'objectively' determined, often through DNA evidence, which allows us to squarely establish innocence despite a conviction. But the stories selected for this book represent a cross-section: some are such that (almost) every reader will see and acknowledge the wrong, and some interviews may leave the readers scratching his head, wondering "what was the author thinking?" By speaking with those impacted by injustices that occurred over the last 60 years--during the 1950s at the height of McCarthyism, the 1980s in Louisiana and New York when race played a large a role in how justice was dispensed and how the media portrayed the participants, the aftermath of 9/11 when many were prepared to believe the worst, and the time shortly before the Supreme Court decided that marriage could be granted to same-sex couples--this book requires readers to look at injustice in the context of our times. The stories told by the participants themselves give the reader insight into the challenges of dispensing, and even commenting on, justice. The author asks difficult questions: Is there an injustice when the game seems to have been played fairly, but the System still got it wrong? Is it an injustice when a jury, properly charged with the evidence fairly presented, convicts the wrong man? Or when people, so passionate in their own point of view, use over-the-top tactics to persuade others of their position? These interviews add to the important--and what must be ongoing--conversation about injustice in America."--

Moses : a memoir by Joel Cohen( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
This deeply passionate and personal tale reveals a very human Moses, a man who often quailed at what was required of him by God, who argued with God and who questioned God's plan for his life. We see through his eyes, we feel through his heart, we understand his doubts and fears as he guides his people, receives the Ten Commandments and always remains human in the midst of his awesome responsibilities and unfolding destiny.
