<p><b>A must-read after watching Ava DuVernay's <i>When They See Us</i><br /><br />In this spellbinding account of the real facts of the Central Park jogger case, Sarah Burns powerfully reexamines one of New York City's most notorious crimes and its aftermath.</b><br /> <br />On April 20th, 1989, two passersby discovered the body of the "Central Park jogger" crumpled in a ravine. She'd been raped and severely beaten. Within days five black and Latino teenagers were apprehended, all five confessing to the crime. The staggering torrent of media coverage that ensued, coupled with fierce public outcry, exposed the deep-seated race and class divisions in New York City at the time. The minors were tried and convicted as adults despite no evidence linking them to the victim. Over a decade later, when DNA tests connected serial rapist Matias Reyes to the crime, the government, law enforcement, social institutions and media of New York were exposed as having undermined the individuals they were designed to protect. <br /><br />Here, Sarah Burns recounts this historic case for the first time since the young men's convictions were overturned, telling, at last, the full story of one of New York’s most legendary crimes.</p>

<p><b>David E. McCraw recounts his experiences as the top newsroom lawyer for the <i>New York Times</i> during the most turbulent era for journalism in generations.</b><br /><b></b><br />In October 2016, when Donald Trump's lawyer demanded that <i>The New York Times</i> retract an article focused on two women that accused Trump of touching them inappropriately, David McCraw's scathing letter of refusal went viral and he became a hero of press freedom everywhere. But as you'll see in <i>Truth in Our Times</i>, for the top newsroom lawyer at the paper of record, it was just another day at the office.</p><p>McCraw has worked at the <i>Times </i>since 2002, leading the paper's fight for freedom of information, defending it against libel suits, and providing legal counsel to the reporters breaking the biggest stories of the year. In short: if you've read a controversial story in the paper since the Bush administration, it went across his desk first. From Chelsea Manning's leaks to Trump's tax returns, McCraw is at the center of the paper's decisions about what news is fit to print.</p><p>In <i>Truth in Our Times, </i>McCraw recounts the hard legal decisions behind the most impactful stories of the last decade with candor and style. The book is simultaneously a rare peek behind the curtain of the celebrated organization, a love letter to freedom of the press, and a decisive rebuttal of Trump's fake news slur through a series of hard cases. It is an absolute must-have for any dedicated reader of <i>The New York Times</i>.</p>

This book answers all the questions you had about the Casey Anthony case. Why did she get acquitted? Why did the jurors see George as a suspect? Why did they think she was a good mother? And how on God's green earth did they miss the suffocation search? There are surprisingly good answers for all of these questions. I argue in this book that not only did the prosecution hide evidence from the jury, but that the evidence points to Casey being factually innocent as well. Regardless of whether you agree with my viewpoint, I guarantee you'll learn something you didn't know before about this infamous case.

<P>In an age of smartphones, Facebook and YouTube, privacy may seem to be a norm of the past. This book addresses ethical and legal questions that arise when media technologies are used to give individuals unwanted attention. Drawing from a broad range of cases within the US, UK, Australia, Europe, and elsewhere, Mark Tunick asks whether privacy interests can ever be weightier than society’s interest in free speech and access to information.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>Taking a comparative and interdisciplinary approach, and drawing on the work of political theorist Jeremy Waldron concerning toleration, the book argues that we can still have a legitimate interest in controlling the extent to which information about us is disseminated. The book begins by exploring why privacy and free speech are valuable, before developing a framework for weighing these conflicting values. By taking up key cases in the US and Europe, and the debate about a ‘right to be forgotten’, Tunick discusses the potential costs of limiting free speech, and points to legal remedies and other ways to develop new social attitudes to privacy in an age of instant information sharing.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>This book will be of great interest to students of privacy law, legal ethics, internet governance and media law in general.</P>

<DIV><B>The “authentic and definitive” story of Martha Moxley’s murder case, including the conviction of her killer, Michael Skakel—includes photos! (<I>Greenwich Time</I>)</B><BR />  <BR /> On the night before Halloween, 1975, the wealthy community of Greenwich, Connecticut, was rocked by the murder of fifteen-year-old Martha Moxley, who was discovered in her backyard, bludgeoned and stabbed with a women’s golf club. Yet despite the horror of the crime, the well-to-do neighborhood stymied the investigation, which had drawn nationwide attention due to one suspect’s ties to the Kennedy family.<BR />  <BR /> For twenty-three years, the killing went unsolved and the killer unpunished, until the first edition of this book was published, outlining the chilling murder and the community’s response. When a special grand jury was finally convened, it took two more years for the police to bring the Moxley’s next-door neighbor, Michael Skakel, to trial and convict him of the gruesome homicide.<BR />  <BR /> Determined to share the eventual conclusion to the crime that shattered families and haunted Greenwich for almost a quarter century, the author has updated the book called by <I>Greenwich Time</I>, the “literary authority on the Martha Moxley murder.”</DIV>
