Descripción editorial

An insightful collection of essays from leading voices on the challenges and promise of justice and law, this book is accessible and interesting to a wide audience. It features internationally renowned members of the academy, national political figures, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, and crusading lawyers. The thought-provoking topics include:


Erwin Chemerinsky on reconceptualizing federalism and healthcare reform * John Echohawk on Native American rights * Jack Greenberg on Brown v. Board's legacy * Linda Greenhouse on how Supreme Court Justices evolve over time * Lani Guinier on reframing affirmative action * Antonia Hernandez on what citizenship means after 9/11 * Anthony Lewis on broadening presidential power to fight terrorism * Janet Napolitano on security and rights after 9/11 * Charles Ogletree on achieving racial justice * Robert Reich on the economic inheritance of our children * Judith Resnik on Guantanamo, Miranda, and public rights to fairness * Geoffrey Stone on sacrificing civil liberties in wartime.


The volume originates from a lecture series honoring legal legend John P. Frank, who represented Ernesto Miranda in the Supreme Court. It is edited and presented by Marjorie S. Zatz and Doris Marie Provine--both professors of Justice & Social Inquiry at Arizona State University--and Arizona attorney James P. Walsh, who was once a law partner to John Frank.


Quality ebook formatting includes active Contents, linked notes, legible graphics, and proper presentation of the original book into an accessible digital edition.
