Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0856832359, Hardcover)

The history of justice is explored in these essays drawn from a high court judge's 15 years of courtroom experience. Using scripture, history, law, philosophy, science, government, and political economy, these writings seek to place modern notions of justice within their historical context in order to better understand the patchwork means by which governments typically remedy claims of injustice. Ultimately, the goal of such scrutiny would be to restore a greater measure of justice in the economic realm. Historical tensions between freedom of the individual and government; the rule of law as it is understood in the American Declaration of Independence, in England, in Blackstone’s Commentaries, during the French Revolution, and today; the problem of poverty in blighting progress; and how socialism, in trying to ameliorate the worst excesses of unbridled capitalism, has spawned injustices of its own, are among the topics discussed.
