Tragedy at Law follows a rather self-important High Court judge, Mr Justice Barber, as he moves from town to town presiding over cases in the Southern England circuit. When an anonymous letter arrives for Barber, warning of imminent revenge, he dismisses it as the work of a harmless lunatic. But then a second letter appears, followed by a poisoned box of the judge's favourite chocolates, and he begins to fear for his life. Enter barrister and amateur detective Francis Pettigrew, a man who was once in love with Barber's wife and has never quite succeeded in his profession - can he find out who is threatening Barber before it is too late?

Cannibalism and the Common Law is an enthralling classic of legal history. It tells the tragic story of the yacht Mignonette, which foundered on its way from England to Australia in 1884. The killing and eating of one of the crew, Richard Parker, led to the leading case in the defence of necessity, R. v. Dudley and Stephens. It resulted in their being convicted and sentenced to death, a sentence subsequently commuted. In this tour de force Brian Simpson sets the legal proceedings in their broadest historical context, providing a detailed account of the events and characters involved and of life at sea in the time of sail. Cannibalism and the Common Law is a demonstration that legal history can be written in human terms and can be compulsive reading. This brilliant and fascinating book, a marvelous example of eareful historical detection, and first-class legal history, written by a master.

This book, the first to trace revenge tragedy's evolving dialogue with early modern law, draws on changing laws of evidence, food riots, piracy, and debates over royal prerogative. By taking the genre's legal potential seriously, it opens up the radical critique embedded in the revenge tragedies of Kyd, Shakespeare, Marston, Chettle and Middleton.

This book, winner of the 1969 South Atlantic Modern Language Association Award, presents a new perspective in the criticism of Jacobean tragedy and a truer evaluation of this body of drama. Mr. Herndl reinterprets a number of important Jacobean plays, making clear their essential spirit and the world view from which it rises. Herndl demonstrates the radical difference between this tragic spirit and that of the tradition culminating in Shakespeare which was based on the medieval conception of Natural Law. He traces the religious and philosophical history which shaped the drama of both periods, especially those seventeenth century changes in thought and belief which revolutionized tragedy. Readable and full of rich insights, The High Design provides a detailed analysis of the drama of Heywood, Webster, Tourneur, Beaumont and Fletcher, and Ford and reconstructs the cultural and intellectual history providing the matrix of the drama.

This book begins with the authors opinion of the police image over the past several decades. As well as a brief history of the Florida Sheriff. It then flows smoothly in to a series of fictitious short stories, all of which were inspired by actual events that took place during the authors law enforcement career. There is both humor and tragedy, as you follow Stoney Burke through his day to day experiences, on the beat, as a patrol sergeant with the Tomahawk County Sheriff's Office. Although the events actually took place, all names, locations, and police agencies are fictitious to protect the innocent and guilty. The book is interlaced with scripture versus, in an attempt to inspire, and show the heart of the author.

Contemporary Western constitutional systems promised a liberty-based political and social order. Yet over time, liberty has turned into a self-destructive force, as rights claims have been increasingly advanced not to defend negative liberties, but to demand positive action from governments to promote freedom or righteous causes. This volume reflects on the demise of liberty (and with it, liberty-based constitutional orders) from the perspective of political practice and through the lenses of political theory, constitutional law, and human rights. The book contemplates key problems from the broader perspective of constitutionalism and liberty, addresses the tension between liberty and dignity, and brings case studies on particularly challenging issues to the discussion. The sheer depth and richness of the contributions in this collection make this volume a useful roadmap for a much needed dialogue. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Issues in Constitutional Law [ICL] - Vol. 9) [Subject: Constitutional Law, Human Rights Law, Political Theory]
