Book description
From the dust jacket:   It should be no surprise that stories of justice play a central role in world folklore.  Sharon Creeden, a lawyer and professional storyteller has collected thirty compelling tales of justice from around the world that shed light on issues that we grapple with today. Most of the stories are followed by comments on famous court cases and modern legal debates.  There are stories about wise judges, clever lawyers, and deceitful tricksters from places as diverse as China, jamaica, Ireland, India, Israel and ancient Greece.  Creeden's comments address everything from the trial of Socrates to the Salem Witch Trial to the Navajo Peacemaker Court to the Ted Bundy case.   A malaysian tale in which each animal blames another for Crocodile's broken eggs prompts a discussion of proxmate cause and liability law; a Japanese tale about how Ooka the judge identifies the real mother of a baby is complemented by an overview of the 1985 "Baby M" child custody dispute; and an Italian tale about a mistreated horse gives rise to a discussion of the animal rights debate.
