Plucknett, Theodore F.T. A Concise History of the Common Law. Fifth Edition. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1956. Reprinted 2001 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 00-067821. ISBN 1-58477-137-2. Cloth. $125. * "Professor Plucknett has such a solid reputation on both sides of the Atlantic that one expects from his pen only what is scholarly and accurate...Nor is the expectation likely to be disappointed in this book. Plucknett's book is not...a mere epitome of what is to be found elsewhere. He has explored on his own account many regions of legal history and, even where the ground has been already quartered, he has fresh methods of mapping it. The title which he has chosen is, in view of the contents of the volume, rather a narrow one. It might equally well have been A Concise History of English Law...In conjunction with Readings on the History and System of the Common Law by Dean Pound...this book will give an excellent grounding to the student of English legal history." Percy H. Winfield. Harv. L. Rev. 43:339-340.

Hankey, The Right Hon. Lord. Politics, Trials and Errors. Chicago: Henry Regnery Company, [1950]. xiv, 150 pp. Reprinted 2002 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-228-X. Cloth. $65. * Lord Hankey [1877-1963] served as secretary of the British cabinet during the Second World War. This allowed him the rare opportunity to observe crucial events at the highest political levels, which he describes in this volume. Hankey opposes the Allied policy of unconditional surrender and desire to hold war crime trials, goals that were announced during the middle years of the war. He takes the position that the former encouraged the Axis to take desperate measures to prolong the war, a policy that led to needless destruction and death, and dismisses the latter as empty propaganda that did nothing for the victims and impeded the peace process.

The essays in this text deal with aspects of British legal learning. It traces the tradition of learning dating back to the Middle Ages and how the inns of court provided the equivalent of a legal university. The essays describe how before the middle of the 19th-century there was little formal provision of legal education in Britain and that law in the ancient universities was not intended to have practical value and entrance to the bar was not dependent upon written examination.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

»Ich sah es in den Nachrichten. Nacht. Gebüsch. Wasser, verschwommene Lichter, ein Hubschrauber. Männer mit Warnwesten und Schutzhelmen. Hier war etwas Entsetzliches passiert..« Robert Farquharson bekommt sein Leben einfach nicht auf die Reihe. Seit einiger Zeit lebt er getrennt von seiner Familie. Am Abend des Vatertags im Jahr 2005 fährt er die drei Söhne zurück zuseiner Exfrau Cindy, als sein Wagen von der Straße abkommt und in einen See stürzt. Nur er kann sich aus dem Auto befreien ... Tragischer Unfall oder Racheakt – diese Frage wird die australische Justiz und Öffentlichkeit in den folgenden Jahren beschäftigen – und sie wird für Helen Garner geradezu zur Obsession. Sie verfolgt den Prozess durch alle Instanzen und erzählt die Geschichte eines Mannes und seines kaputten Leben und das unerhörte und unvorhersehbare Gerichts-Drama auf der Suche nach Gerechtigkeit.
