Das Recht, der Anwalt oder der Richter nehmen in der schönen Literatur breiten Raum ein. Dennoch gibt es kaum Untersuchungen über das Verhältnis von Jurisprudenz und Literatur. Der in New York lehrende Rechtswissenschaftler Richard Weisberg ist einer der Pioniere der "Poethik", die sich mit diesem Beziehungsgeflecht befaßt. Der Band versammelt eine Auswahl seiner Arbeiten, die sich mit dem Recht bei Camus, Dostojewski, Flaubert und anderen auseinandersetzen. Ein Nachwort von Bernhard Schlink beschließt den Band
Vichy law and the Holocaust in France by Richard H Weisberg( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and French and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The involvement of Vichy France with Nazi Germany's anti-Jewish policy has long been a source of debate and contention. At a time when France, after decades of denial, has finally acknowledged responsibility for its role in the deportation and murder of 75,000 Jews from France during the Holocaust, Richard H. Weisberg here provides us with a comprehensive and devastating account of the French legal system's complicity with its German occupiers during the dark period known as 'Vichy'." "Drawing on newly-available archival sources, personal interviews, and historical research, Weisberg reveals how legalized persecution actually operated on a practical level, often exceeding German expectations. Further, he presents a persuasive argument for Vichy law as an acquired Catholic response to a false notion of Jewish Talmudism. The book also compares the Vichy experience to American legal precedents and practices and opens up the possibility that postmodern modes of thinking ironically adopt the complexity of Vichy reasoning to a host of reading and thinking strategies." "Vichy Law and the Holocaust in France raises fundamental and disturbing questions about the ease with which democratic legal systems can be subverted."--BOOK JACKET

In praise of intransigence : the perils of flexibility by Richard H Weisberg( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this short and provocative book, Richard H. Weisberg asks us to reexamine our collective cultural bias toward flexibility, open-mindedness, and compromise. He argues that flexibility has not fared well over the course of history. Indeed, emergencies both real and imagined have let people to betray their soundest traditions. Weisberg explores the rise of flexibility in Western thought, which he traces not only to the Enlightenment but further back to early Christian reinterpretation of Jewish sacred texts. He illustrates his argument with historical examples from Vichy France and the occupation of the British Channel Islands during World War II as well as post-9/11 betrayals of sound American traditions against torture and other compromising practices. Despite frequent damage wrought by the incautious embrace of flexibility over the past two millennia, Weisberg does not make the case for unthinking rigidity. Rather, he argues that a willingness to embrace intransigence allows us to recognize that we have beliefs worth holding on to--without compromise"--Jacket
