<b>A <i>Wall Street Journal</i> Besteller! Alan Dershowitz, one of America’s most respected legal scholars and a<i> New York Times </i>bestselling author proves—with incontrovertible evidence—that he is entirely innocent of the sexual misconduct accusations against him, while suggesting a roadmap for how such allegations should be handled in a just society.  </b><br /><br />“Maybe the question isn’t what happened to Alan Dershowitz. Maybe it’s what happened to everyone else.”—<i>Politico</i><br /><br /> Alan Dershowitz has been called “one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America” by <i>Politico </i>and “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights” by <i>Newsweek</i>. Yet he has come under intense criticism for applying those same principles, and his famed “shoe‑on‑the‑other‑foot test,” to those accused of sexual misconduct.<br /><br /> In <i>Guilt by Accusation</i>, Dershowitz provides an in‑depth analysis of the false accusations against him, alongside a full presentation of the exculpatory evidence that proves his account, including emails from his accuser and an admission of his innocence from her lawyer, David Boies. Additionally, he examines current attitudes toward accusations of sexual misconduct, which are today, in the age of #MeToo, accepted as implicit truth without giving the accused a fair chance to defend themselves and their innocence, and suggests possible pathways back to a society and legal system in which due process is respected above public opinion and the whims of social media mobs.<br /><br /> This book is Alan Dershowitz’s plea for fairness for both accuser and accused, his principled stand for due process no matter the allegation, and his compelling assertion of his own innocence. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to know the inside story behind the accusations against him or who cares about the current societal debate over how we should handle accusations of sexual misconduct.<br /><br /> The #MeToo movement has generally been a force for good, but as with many good movements, it is being exploited by some bad people for personal profit. Supporters of the #MeToo movement must not allow false accusers to hurt real victims by hiding behind its virtuous shield, turning it into an exploitive sword against innocent people.

Aristotle (384–322 BCE) was a Greek philosopher and student of Plato who stunningly changed the course of Western philosophy. He has gone down in history as one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, once called his writing style "a river of gold;" and his scope of thought and subsequent influence on the study of science, logic, philosophical discourse, and theology has led many to dub him "The Philosopher."<br /><br />Contents:<br /><br />Part 1: Logic (Organon)<br />Categories, translated by E.

Reviving the Tribe creates a rich and brutally honest portrait of contemporary gay men’s lives amidst the seemingly endless AIDS epidemic and offers both autobiographical self-examination and a relentless critique of current sexual politics within the gay community. Fearlessly confronting the horrors experiences by surviving gay men without giving way to hopelessness, denial, or blame, Reviving the Tribe offers an inspiring blueprint for the gay community which faces a continuing spiral of disaster.<br /><br />In Reviving the Tribe, Author Eric Rofes argues that a return to the interrupted agenda of gay liberation may provide long-term motivation to keep gay men alive and spur rejuvenation of new generations of gay culture. By interweaving social history, psychology, anthropology, epidemiology, sociology, feminist theory, and sexology with his own journey through the epidemic, Rofes provides a moving and compelling argument for stepping out of the “state of emergency” and embracing a life beyond disease. He boldly offers a plan for community regeneration focused on restoring mental health, reclaiming sexuality, and mending the social fabric of communal gay life. <br /><br />Rofes asks unspoken questions lurking in gay men’s minds and suggests answers to these questions, hitting such controversial topics as:<br /><ul><li>gay men’s sex cultures of the 1970s<br /></li><li>why “educated” gay men continue to become HIV-infected<br /></li><li>changing forms of gay masculinity<br /></li><li>the opening of new sex clubs and bathhouses<br /></li><li>leaving “rage activism” behind<br /></li><li>links between the Holocaust and AIDS<br /></li><li>unacknowledged roots in the feminist movement of gay men’s AIDS response<br /></li><li>mass denial of chronic trauma among gay men<br /><br />The refusal to confront the ever-intensifying manifestations of AIDS has seriously endangered the foundation of contemporary gay communities. Rofes argues that many gay men suffer from the ”disaster syndrome,” a psychologically determined response that defends individuals against being overwhelmed by traumatic experience. In Reviving the Tribe, he provides a radical critique of contemporary gay political culture and suggests alternatives which offer the opportunity to face history, grapple with decimation, and regenerate communal life.<br /><br />Cautioning that an honest analysis of recent gay history and urban cultures promises neither to stop gay men’s suffering nor to end continuing HIV infections, Reviving the Tribe provides gay men with a clear lens through which they might scrutinize their lives, come to a new understanding of the epidemic’s impact on their generation, and redirect activism. This courageous and inspiring work brings Rofes’commanding intellect and twenty years of grassroots gay activism to bear on the challenging task of reconstructing gay life in the new mellennium. <br /><br />Reviving the Tribe is filled with insight of special interest to gay men, lesbians involved in the mixed lesbian/gay movement, sociologists, public health workers, psychologists, counselors, sex educators, religious leaders, and AIDS prevention policymakers searching for fresh vision.</li></ul>

Product Description
Customer Reviews
O acordo de leniência, como instrumento de apuração de ilícitos, foi previsto pela Lei 12.846/2013, conhecida também como Lei Anticorrupção (LAC).<br /><br />Esse diploma veio inaugurar, no ordenamento pátrio, a possibilidade de responsabilização administrativa e civil de pessoas jurídicas pela prática de atos lesivos contra a Administração Pública nacional e estrangeira.<br /><br />Com sua promulgação, o Estado passou a deter meios de sancionar pessoas jurídicas de forma efetiva. <br /><br />Anteriormente, a ação estatal ficava restrita à punição das pessoas naturais que agiam em nome das empresas ou, ainda, à aplicação de sanções judiciais ou administrativas de fundo contratual ou regulatório. <br /><br />Este livro é fruto da reflexão de quem teve a oportunidade de trabalhar diretamente com a matéria e, posteriormente, distanciar-se dos acontecimentos para, livres de qualquer compromisso, avaliar criticamente todos os aspectos inerentes ao acordo de leniência inclusive aqueles que ajudamos a construir sob o ponto de vista exclusivamente técnico. Assim, foram inevitáveis as inúmeras referências aos diversos doutrinadores e juristas em quem nos baseamos. <br /><br />Por fim, o maior desejo com esta obra é que ela se torne uma contribuição para todos os agentes públicos, advogados e operadores do direito em geral, que continuarão a enfrentar os desafios da implementação.

<p><em>Everyday Ethics for the Criminal Justice Professional</em> focuses on getting students to think about ethics in the day-to-day context. By placing an emphasis on practical applications as opposed to theoretical ideologies the book is more user-friendly to the student of the 21st century. Unlike other texts, it includes forensics and private security in the list of criminal justice professions, their impact on the field and what it means to “do business” in criminal justice.</p><br /><p>The text also utilizes practical scenarios in the career fields of policing, institutional corrections, community corrections, prosecutors and judges, private security, criminal justice supervision and forensics to allow for students to apply theoretical concepts to real life criminal justice situations. The text prepares students to think and process through ethics in both the concrete and abstract.</p><br /><p><strong>Test Bank Details:</strong></p><br /><p>• Multiple-choice/True-False test banks in Word, .txt or pdf format.</p><br /><p>• Blackboard and Moodle formats also available.

Customer Reviews
<p>What are we willing to sacrifice for the welfare of others? Can we face the suffering we have both given and received? Is there room for mercy in the heart of justice? These and other questions related to the moral depth and ethical inclination of the human condition are explored in the 24 original short stories that complete this book.</p><br /><p><em>Morality Stories</em> encompasses personal, social and criminal justice themes and dilemmas, such as Death Row, homelessness and prejudice. In each story, persons are judged as much by the good they omitted to do as by the bad actions they chose to carry out. Acknowledging regrets, expressing remorse and accepting responsibility are demonstrated in many of the stories as a means of moving toward moral courage and decision-making.</p><br /><p>The fourth edition offers six new stories. One examines how young boys become aware of class and territorial differences at an early age. Armed with air rifles and bicycles, it is a hop, skip and a jump before they are terrorizing a hapless victim they perceive to be a member of the upper crust of their neighborhood. Two of the stories address issues in contemporary policing, one regarding the pressures on marriage and family relationships and the other, challenges in keeping the peace during volatile times of unrest and protest. Another story explores how a clockmaker who was concentration camp doctor during the holocaust of WWII tries to morally justify his treatment of helpless victims to a young journalist while he awaits deportation to face trial for war crimes. Finally, there is also a story that examines racial prejudice in an historical perspective when two decorated black soldiers return to the Jim Crow South where they are met with derision and disrespect.</p><br /><br /><p>“<em>Morality Stories</em> holds a real fascination for persons concerned with good and evil. The book's moral is translucent: 'An evil act doesn’t necessarily make a person who committed it evil...'” — <em>Gilbert Geis, University of California at Irvine</em></p><br /><p>“The authors, including the work of Scott Braswell in this volume, have once again produced an exemplary tool for ethical pedagogy in <em>Morality Stories</em>… [This book] is a well-done and valuable contribution to the literature of criminal justice and criminology… The book will serve as an excellent companion volume to a primary ethics textbook for the undergraduate, the graduate, or even the doctoral course in ethics.” — <em>International Criminal Justice Review (on the second edition)</em></p>
