|Author||: Joshua A. Berman|
|Editor||: Oxford University Press|
In Created Equal, Joshua Berman engages the text of the Hebrew Bible from a novel perspective, considering it as a document of social and political thought. He proposes that the Pentateuch can be read as the earliest prescription on record for the establishment of an egalitarian polity. What emerges is the blueprint for a society that would stand in stark contrast to the surrounding cultures of the ancient Near East -- Egypt, Mesopotamia, Ugarit, and the Hittite Empire - in which the hierarchical structure of the polity was centered on the figure of the king and his retinue. Berman shows that an egalitarian ideal is articulated in comprehensive fashion in the Pentateuch and is expressed in its theology, politics, economics, use of technologies of communication, and in its narrative literature. Throughout, he invokes parallels from the modern period as heuristic devices to illuminate ancient developments. Thus, for example, the constitutional principles in the Book of Deuteronomy are examined in the light of those espoused by Montesquieu, and the rise of the novel in 18th-century England serves to illuminate the advent of new modes of storytelling in biblical narrative.

Why should Americans who are not gay care about gay rights? In Created Equal, Michael Nava and Robert Dawidoff argue that the movement for gay equality is central to the continuing defense of individual liberty in America. Beginning with an examination of the determined assault on gay issues by the religious right, the authors show how this sectarian movement to legislate private religious morality into law undermines the purpose of American constitutional government: the protection of the individual's right to determine how best to live his or her life. The book starts from the premise that gay men and lesbians are, first and foremost, American citizens, and then looks to what rights belong to every individual American citizen, arguing from the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Addressing their argument to the great majority of their fellow Americans, Dawidoff and Nava emphasize that what is at stake is not the fate of the gay community, but the future of constitutional principle and the rights of free individuals in American society.

Desperate to become a priest in the Catholic Church, Aleksandra Kowalski turns to Thomas Patrick O'Reilly, one of the wealthiest and most successful trial lawyers in Houston, Texas. Tommy believes the Catholic Church has no basis under United States law to exclude women from the seminary and files suit against the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and Archbishop Jorge Sierra for sex discrimination without justifiable cause. The Catholic Church hires Monsignor Enrico Renzulli, the General Counsel of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops. Renzulli, a priest and Harvard-educated attorney, has substantial trial experience and has taken on and beaten lawyers considerably smarter than O'Reilly. He believes the lawsuit should be summarily dismissed because the First Amendment of the United States Constitution grants all citizens the freedom of religion, and it prevents a federal court from interfering with the ecclesiastical rules of any church, including the Catholic Church. But watching and waiting in the wings is an extreme and tyrannical sect unaffiliated with the Catholic Church. As the trial unfolds and the legal proceedings begin to undermine the sacred Catholic Church teaching, a right-wing extremist and a member of the Holy Mother Church concocts a plot to stop the heresy against God that includes kidnapping and murder. Will the First Amendment protect the Catholic Church and supersede all? Will Tommy O'Reilly come through? Will Aleksandra Kowalski survive this ordeal? Find out in R.A. Brown's gripping legal thriller,Created Equal.

In this candid and deeply moving memoir, a quintessential American tale of hardship and grit, Clarence Thomas recounts his astonishing journey for the first time.

The inequalities of man are certainly a big theme of this story. But its biggest dilemma is that of choice. Having established two opposing concepts, the thrill of freedom and the evil of slavery, the story heads toward a plotthe inevitable confrontation between the two concepts. The two most controversial characters of the story face each other in the end. One has all the power necessary to control the other one's fate, but the other one, a slave, has now gained an advantage. She has reached a land where she is free. She can finally break the bonds that enslave her. But will she? Will she walk away from the love of a child that sees her as her mother? More important, the battle seems to change protagonists. It is now freedom against love, love for a man that a slave woman cannot have, and thirst for a freedom that will dissipate by accepting the other.

Arete: the ancient Greek goddess of virtue and excellence It is the year 2250, and most countries in the world are administered by an artificial intelligence system called Arete. Initially created to assist lawmakers in writing legislation, Arete gradually took over the whole process, replacing human-generated legislation with simplified universal laws that are fair and equitable to everyone and simultaneously making lawmakers, judges, and juries redundant. Arete is connected to personal intelligent wristbands and various robots built to care for and police society, which offers a true democracy. Everyone is treated equally, honestly, and fairly. Elected officials can focus on leading their country-they don't have to administer it as well. The artificial intelligence is based on five fundamental principles defined by a UN committee. The underlying logic interpretation and coding are provided by a team of engineers working for the company that has developed the software. Sean Staples, a newly qualified cadet to this program, finds that lofty theoretical ideals are sometimes not easy to implement.
