This book contributes significantly to Law and Literature studies. Arguing for the political relevance of their work, the editors open the volume with an introduction that summarizes topical developments in law enforcement and penal politics including the 'prisonization' of American society and popular support for &la" no tolerance approaches to crime. The fourteen essays that follow - six on trials and eight on prisons - discuss subjects ranging from the political ramifications of Captain Kidd's trials for piracy to a reading of South African prison memoirs and include treatments of prison films, courtroom dramas and works by Dickens, Shakespeare and Scott. The volume demonstrates powerfully how concepts of criminality are constructed and how literature participates in, and sometimes enhances, general discursive traditions of adversarial litigation and carcerality.

This is a book about the history of the science of inertia. Nobody denies the existence of the forces of inertia, but they are branded as OC fictitiousOCO because they do not fit smoothly into modern physics. Named by Kepler and given mathematical form by Newton, the force of inertia remains aloof because it has no obvious local cause. At the end of the 19th century, Ernst Mach bravely claimed that the inertia of an object was the result of its instantaneous interaction with all matter in the universe. Many other well-known physicists, including Aristotle, Galileo, Descartes and Einstein, are shown to have tackled this difficult subject. The book also concentrates on inertia research in the 20th century, taking place under the shadow of general relativity, which is seen as uncomfortable with Mach''s principle. A Newtonian paradigm, based on action-at-a-distance forces, is discussed throughout the book, allowing the revival of Mach''s principle as the only coherent explanation of the inertia forces which play such an important role in the laboratory and in the cosmos.

In 1963 Sewsunker “Papwa” Sewgolum, a former caddie, became the first golfer of colour to win a provincial open in South Africa. Self-taught, his game honed on the hills and dunes surrounding his Riverside home, Papwa beat 103 white golfers in the Natal Open at the Durban Country Club and instantly became a symbol of the sports boycott movement. Two years later Papwa beat Gary Player to win the Natal Open for the second time. He also won the Dutch Open in 1959, 1960 and 1964. However, at the peak of his career Papwa was banned by the government from participating in or attending any PGA tournaments in South Africa. They also withdrew his passport, denying him the right to play internationally. These measures slowly broke Papwa’s spirit, leaving him with nothing but the dreams of what might have been. Written as fiction, Papwa: In the Grip of a Champion is a uniquely South African story told by a master storyteller. “The record books don’t lie. Three Dutch Opens, I repeat, three Dutch Opens in six years . . .”

He explains how those cases nullified the privileges or immunities clause of the 14th Amendment and how the repercussions continue to manifest themselves today. Bolick offers hope for the future, however, in describing the current campaign to restore economic liberty as a fundamental civil right.

Have you lost your grip? A little bit of wisdom will help you retain the traction needed to keep moving along life's worn and often rocky path. Lillian McFerran's Getting a Grip on God is an assemblage of such wisdom from her own life experiences as well as the knowledge and passion of a number of sages and contemporary authors. Inside you'll find essays on 150 topics that can be helpful for sermons, retreats, discussions, devotions, or meditations. Over 300 quotes illuminate the subjects with clarity, irony, and humor. Getting a Grip on God is a compendium of the threads of reason and influence that are applicable to everyday life, and though produced through a prism of the author's Lutheran background, the text awakens a reverence for the spirit and fortitude inherent in mankind. Although written for personal clarification, insight, and understanding, the author feels the conveyed wisdom relates to parenting, maturity, family life, and community involvement. Getting a Grip on God provides biblical and liturgical references for each topic, making it an easy-to-read, educational tool. It reminds us eloquently and convincingly of the sound, practical sense found in manners, friendship, sensibility, and compassion. Get back to your roots and refocus your grip on life!

What is it like in practice to come close to the presence of God? Are there words which can, in some way, explain the nature of that experience? In this compelling study, Paul Murray draws attention to both the wisdom and lived experience of those men and women who knew, at first hand, of the light and fire of which they speak. Murray demonstrates how important and relevant for us today are the writings of authors such as Catherine of Siena, John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart, and Teresa of Avila. To the often bewildered hearts and minds of our generation, the writings of these remarkable men and women speak with a unique authority.
