Explanation of the Book:

This book is an adventure of the life and growth of a nerdy kid from the streets of Jersey City, New Jersey. Displaced to the deep south of Pensacola, Florida, he struggled as a fish out of water and found himself getting into trouble often in his early years. This years and experiences also taught him about fear and how to overcome it. His early beginnings had him leading a gang at sixteen years old and committing robberies and break-ins followed by his inevitable imprisonment for his crimes in (the Wall) Huntsville, Texas as well as years of hard labor at Florida State Prison in Raiford, Florida, and Bartow Prison Road Camp, a Cool Hand Luke type of facility. Eventually, he gained his freedom and spent years dispensing vigilante justice. That abruptly came to an end with miracle of circumstances. In all, Jim has been described as a man with the tenacity of Clint Eastwood, the adrenaline rush of Indiana Jones, the physical feats of a James Bond movie, the genius of Einstein, the psychoanalyzing skills of Dr. Phil, and the power of Al Capone. He surrendered it all to a life in Jesus Christ and became a humble minister of God.

Explanation of the Book:

The year was 1925. A young copyboy, just out of college, was given the job of reporter. Not only was he fulfilling his lifes dream, he was reporting on a trial that became the interest of the nation. In a small rural town in Alabama in 1925, a man was prosecuted for a capital crime. Was he tried fairly based on the facts? Did the town people get so caught up in the excitement of their exposure from the trial that justice was placed by the wayside? Was there a predestined outcome for this trial with the accuser being an elderly white woman and the accused being her gardener, an elderly black man. Tho slavery had been over for many years, the teachings were passed down from previous generations. White was Right, with no questions asked. The Injustice of Justice shows just how deeply the separation by color was and of the consequences. The story may tug at your conscience and your heart. Either way, it may be an emotional experience that will leave you sympathetic to an elderly black man named Jake.

Explanation of the Book:

God is pissed. In the beginning, God created heaven, earth, and all the animals. They were part of a grand and perfect design. It worked well, and God was pleased. Then one of the animals, man, started altering the design, irritating God. God gave man, unlike the other animals, a little cleverness, which has caused him to jump the tracks. Using this cleverness, man has conceived, created, and implemented incredible unnatural and convoluted ideas, constructs, and systems. These entities are upsetting God's patterns of nature. Man is now doing things God never intended. This has not only made God's plans go haywire but also threatens man himself. God is in high dudgeon because man's imagination is debauching his perfect world. To make matters worse, man audaciously blames God for a world gone crazy. God has patiently endured man's accusations but now intends to set him straight on the true nature of things and explain how he has screwed things up. This is God's lecture, and if man has any inkling of what is good for him, he will listen.

Explanation of the Book:

Designed as a text for Criminal Justice and Criminology capstone courses, Toward Justice encourages students to engage critically with conceptions of justice that go beyond the criminal justice system, in order to cultivate a more thorough understanding of the system as it operates on the ground in an imperfect world—where people aren’t always rational actors, where individual cases are linked to larger social problems, and where justice can sometimes slip through the cracks. Through a combined focus on content and professional development, Toward Justice helps students translate what they have learned in the classroom into active strategies for justice in their professional lives—preparing them for careers that will not simply maintain the status quo and stability that exists within our justice system, but rather challenge the system to achieve justice.

Explanation of the Book:

The Injustice of Justice is a purposeful book designed to introduce the public as well as the profession to an alternate method of policing with a whole-community and responsibility-based approach. Don has written the book from the perspective of a businessman whose interest and subsequent involvement stems first from his employee, then a compassionate and compelling group of individuals in law enforcement and our justice system. "Equal protection under the law is one of the basic premises of the American justice system. Yet many Americans feel this concept is not only elusive, but virtually impossible to attain. It's something we hope for and work to make real. Chief Grady has given us a practical approach to seeking justice while at the same time practicing reality. His book should be a must read for courses in community-police relations and for individuals and groups who want to better understand how our criminal justice system works, what good policing is, what changes are needed, and how we can all engage in making it happen. One of the great divides in our country is how different racial, ethnic, gender and age groups view law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Donald Grady, Ph.D. has written an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand and easy-to-decipher book that becomes more intriguing with each page. I love it!" --Danny K. Davis, Ph.D.; U.S. Representative; 7th Congressional District, Illinois

Explanation of the Book:

In August 2016 Colten Boushie, a twenty-two-year-old Cree man from Red Pheasant First Nation, was fatally shot on a Saskatchewan farm by white farmer Gerald Stanley. In a trial that bitterly divided Canadians, Stanley was acquitted of both murder and manslaughter by a jury in Battleford with no visible Indigenous representation. In Canadian Justice, Indigenous Injustice Kent Roach critically reconstructs the Gerald Stanley/Colten Boushie case to examine how it may be a miscarriage of justice. Roach provides historical, legal, political, and sociological background to the case including misunderstandings over crime when Treaty 6 was negotiated, the 1885 hanging of eight Indigenous men at Fort Battleford, the role of the RCMP, prior litigation over Indigenous underrepresentation on juries, and the racially charged debate about defence of property and rural crime. Drawing on both trial transcripts and research on miscarriages of justice, Roach looks at jury selection, the controversial “hang fire” defence, how the credibility and beliefs of Indigenous witnesses were challenged on the stand, and Gerald Stanley's implicit appeals to self-defence and defence of property, as well as the decision not to appeal the acquittal. Concluding his study, Roach asks whether Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's controversial call to “do better” is possible, given similar cases since Stanley's, the difficulty of reforming the jury or the RCMP, and the combination of Indigenous underrepresentation on juries and overrepresentation among those victimized and accused of crimes. Informed and timely, Canadian Justice, Indigenous Injustice is a searing account of one case that provides valuable insight into criminal justice, racism, and the treatment of Indigenous peoples in Canada.

Explanation of the Book:

The remarkable life of a lawyer at the forefront of civil and human rights since the 1960s By the time he was 26, Michael Tigar was a legend in legal circles well before he would take on some of the highest-profile cases of his generation. In his first US Supreme Court case—at the age of 28—Tigar won a unanimous victory that freed thousands of Vietnam War resisters from prison. Tigar also led the legal team that secured a judgment against the Pinochet regime for the 1976 murders of Pinochet opponent Orlando Letelier and his colleague Ronni Moffitt in a Washington, DC car bombing. He then worked with the lawyers who prosecuted Pinochet for torture and genocide. A relentless fighter of injustice—not only as a human rights lawyer, but also as a teacher, scholar, journalist, playwright, and comrade—Tigar has been counsel to Angela Davis, Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin (H. Rap Brown), the Chicago Eight, and leaders of the Black Panther Party, to name only a few. It is past time that Michael Tigar wrote his memoir. Sensing Injustice: A Lawyer's Life in the Battle for Change is a vibrant literary and legal feat. In it, Tigar weaves powerful legal analysis and wry observation through the story of his remarkable life. The result is a compelling narrative that blends law, history, and progressive politics. This is essential reading for lawyers, for law students, for anyone who aspires to bend the law toward change.

Explanation of the Book:

An authoritative new translation of Plato's The Republic by Christopher Rowe, with notes and an introduction. 'We set about founding the best city we could, because we could be confident that if it was good we would find justice in it' The Republic, Plato's masterwork, was first enjoyed 2,400 years ago and remains one of the most widely-read books in the world: as a foundational work of Western philosophy, and for the richness of its ideas and virtuosity of its writing. Presented as a dialogue between Plato's teacher Socrates and various interlocutors, it is an exhortation to philosophy, inviting its readers to reflect on the choices to be made if we are to live the best life available to us. This complex, dynamic work creates a picture of an ideal society governed not by the desire for money, power or fame, but by philosophy, wisdom and justice. Christopher Rowe's accurate and enjoyable new translation remains faithful to the many variations of the Republic's tone, style and pace. This edition also contains a chronology, further reading, an outline of the work's main arguments and an introduction discussing Plato's relationship with Socrates, and the Republic's style, ideas and historical context.
