Explanation of the Book:

How would you feel if you were convicted of a crime you did not commit? Would you lie down and do nothing? Would you accept the truth that the judicial system played out for you? Would you fight for the truth? Would you seek justice that isn't there for you? Would you do everything in your power to fight for your freedom? Or would you just allow the judicial system to tear your world apart? These are some of the things that I had to answer in my book Justice or Just Us . . . You Decide. Justice or Just Us is an up-close-and-personal account of the inadequacies of the judicial system on racial profiling. No matter what walk of life you come from, this can happen to you. It takes place in Alameda County, California, in the city of Hayward. I was a forty-one-year-old disabled African American woman that was wrongfully accused of a crime I did not commit. Before this happened in my life, my record was clean. The charges were two counts of battery on a couple (man and woman). This couple befriended me, stole from me, lied about me, used me, and wanted to sue me to get money. On their last few days at living above me, they decided to put their plan into action. I walked out of my house and was dragged into the bushes underneath the stairs at the apartments and beaten by them. As I lay there, I am screaming bloody murder, for they both were beating on my body as I begged someone to call the police; my poor black body was being brutally beaten. The police told them to press charges against me. The Caucasian officer said to me, "How dare you come into my town thinking you can beat up on my white women." At that point, I knew I was in for a long, hard, dragged-out fight of my life. In my story, I will show you the evidence, the transcripts, all paperwork pertaining to this incident, and bring you through the process. All I ask is to look at the evidence and decide for yourself if this was a fair verdict. From the misrepresentation of attorneys to witnesses' testimonies, to the unfair treatment at the hospital, to the inadequate judges in the trial and appeal process, all the way through to the sentencing and home monitoring. This book will take you through from the incident to the trial and beyond.

Explanation of the Book:

Gee Brooks is a young, idealistic probation officer in Maryland who wants to make a difference. She's one of the few officers who doesn't think a new case is a new burden. Gee believes most offenders have positive attributes, but she is caught in a criminal justice system that tries to catch offenders failing and then send them back to prison. Harsh punishment for offenders is the norm the accepted culture. A tragic event with a parolee under her supervision propels Gee to confront both the system and the emotional scars buried within her. Enraged by the external tragedy, she erupts into an abrasive public confrontation with a powerful state parole commissioner. Gee and her officer friends Huggie, Pepe, and Hattie known as the Cuatro Amigos, spontaneously forge an unstoppable grassroots uprising. The humanistic revolution, as it's sarcastically referred to by the press, is on. The Cuatro Amigos hope to survive the punishment that managers and state officials have planned for them long enough to gain the support of the community. A story of friendship, healing, and leaning into conflict, Justice Is Just Us demonstrates the power of support in changing behavior from the mighty to the meek.

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:

Based on an actual wildcat strike that occured in 1979, There Ain’t No Justice, Just Us tells the story of a middle-aged college professor, and former seventies radical, who finds himself caught in the web of a mid-life crisis and a decaying marriage. In his search for a more authentic identity, he winds up leading a wildcat strike in a gritty South Chicago factory. Along the way he encounters a variety of leftists and African-American and Mexican industrial workers who lead genuine, if impoverished, lives. The wildcat strike becomes the psychological gauntlet through which the characters must pass to achieve personal integration. The professor’s quest for internal wholeness leads to a love affair with a radical feminist attorney and activist. In the end, the professor must choose between authenticity and love, or continuing his sedate, middle-class life. Ancillary characters, including Cecelia Sanchez, a Mexican-American college student, find themselves drawing psychological strength from the unfolding battle and engaging in their own liberation struggles—in her case, trying to find the inner spirit to move out on her own, away from her patriarchal family.

Release: 2010-04-22
Editor: Oxford University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

In our lives, we aim to achieve welfare for ourselves, that is, to live good lives. But we also have another, more impartial perspective, where we aim to balance our concern for our own welfare against a concern for the welfare of others. This is a perspective of justice. Nils Holtug examines these two perspectives and the relations between them. The first part of the book is concerned with prudence; more precisely, with what the necessary and sufficient conditions are for having a self-interest in a particular benefit. It includes discussions of the extent to which self-interest depends on preferences, personal identity, and what matters in survival. It also considers the issue of whether it can benefit (or harm) a person to come into existence and what the implications are for our theory of self-interest. A 'prudential view' is defended, according to which a person has a present self-interest in a future benefit if and only if she stands in a relation of continuous physical realization of (appropriate) psychology to the beneficiary, where the strength of the self-interest depends both on the size of the benefit and on the strength of this relation. The second part of the book concerns distributive justice and so how to distribute welfare or self-interest fulfilment over individuals. It includes discussions of welfarism, egalitarianism and prioritarianism, population ethics, the importance of personal identity and what matters for distributive justice, and the importance of all these issues for various topics in applied ethics, including the badness of death. Here, a version of prioritarianism is defended, according to which, roughly, the moral value of a benefit to an individual at a time depends on both the size of the benefit and on the individual's self-interest, at that time, in the other benefits that accrue to her at this and other times.

Explanation of the Book:

Packed with examples, this book offers a clear and engaging overview of ethical issues in business.

Issues are introduced through real-world examples that underscore their importance and make them come alive. Arguments for opposing positions are given fair hearings and students are encouraged to develop and defend their own views. Key Features Introduces each topic with a real-world example, which is referenced regularly in the subsequent argument. Contains a critical evaluation of capitalism and socialism, with a focus on private property, the market system, and the welfare state. Explores the limits of markets and encourages students to ask what should and should not be for sale. Explores the phenomena of corporate political activity and ethical consumerism. Includes initial chapter overviews and – at the end of each chapter – study questions and suggested additional readings.

Explanation of the Book:

What's the real story behind the 2000 presidential election fiasco? Hanging Chads presents candid and insightful interviews with key figures in the post-election recount in Florida, which decided whether Al Gore or George W. Bush would win the closest presidential contest ever. The book features an introduction that clearly explains the often complex and convoluted legal manoeuvering that occurred during those tense thirty-six days of the recount, a timeline laying out the sequence of events, a cast of characters that identifies the key players on both sides, and a glossary of the court cases and legal terminology that came into play. Pleasants interviews the two main Florida lawyers, Dexter Douglass for Gore and Barry Richard for Bush, and discusses the decision-making process with three judges involved in key cases. The book includes the viewpoint of the press and key political players like Tom Feeney, the Florida legislature's Speaker of the House, and Mac Stipanovich, a key political advisor to Katherine Harris. In addition, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Theresa LePore explains why she chose the infamous butterfly ballot that sent the whole process into motion. Providing a unique and balanced insiders' view of one of the most important events in recent history, Hanging Chads is a must-have for students and historians of American politics.
