<b>With A to Z Classics, discover or rediscover all the classics of literature.</b><br /><b>Contains Active Table of Contents (HTML) and in the end of book include a bonus link to the free audiobook.<br /></b><br />Often ranked as the greatest of Plato's many remarkable writings, this celebrated philosophical work of the fourth century B.C. contemplates the elements of an ideal state, serving as the forerunner for such other classics of political thought as Cicero's De Republica, St. Augustine's City of God, and Thomas More's Utopia.<br />Written in the form of a dialog in which Socrates questions his students and fellow citizens, The Republic concerns itself chiefly with the question, "What is justice?" as well as Plato's theory of ideas and his conception of the philosopher's role in society. To explore the latter, he invents the allegory of the cave to illustrate his notion that ordinary men are like prisoners in a cave, observing only the shadows of things, while philosophers are those who venture outside the cave and see things as they really are, and whose task it is to return to the cave and tell the truth about what they have seen. This dynamic metaphor expresses at once the eternal conflict between the world of the senses (the cave) and the world of ideas (the world outside the cave), and the philosopher's role as mediator between the two.<br />High school and college students, as well as lovers of classical literature and philosophy, will welcome this handsome and inexpensive edition of an immortal work. It appears here in the fine translation by the English classicist Benjamin Jowett.

In the 1960s, the University of Manitoba Law School moved from being an downtown, practitioner-taught law school to the suburban campus of a large university. This great transition was modelled after many in Canada. The debate has arisen as to whether law schools have become excessively immersed in the bureaucracy and research orientation of universities, and should embark upon a new transition, in which academic and practical perspectives are better integrated. Bryan Schwartz has been a pioneer in the use of oral history as a dimension of academic law journals, and in this special issue, a dozen of the leaders of the 1960s-era transition candidly reflect in interviews on their lives, careers and the future of legal education. The result is a lively, readable and searching exploration that will be of interest to those reflecting on past and future of legal education throughout the world.

<b>Dear Dad, I am thinking about going to law school ...</b><br /><br />In 1972, Los Angeles lawyer Art Bell got a letter from his college-graduate son, asking questions about the legal profession. What are the reasons someone might consider the law? What are the different specializations? What can—or should—a lawyer do for the community? What is the most important aspect of the law?<br /><br />So the father wrote his son a letter, drawing on his experiences in and study of the law. It is an insightful, inspirational, and often amusing letter, explaining a classic view of the law that is not heard much today—but which must be recaptured if its enduring principles are to survive.<br /><br />For any young person considering law, or any parent with a son or daughter thinking of becoming a lawyer, this letter is a must-read. Don't go to school without it. <br /><br /><b>Art Bell</b> (1919-1988) was a Los Angeles attorney. He received his J.D. from the University of Southern California Law School and was a leading authority on search and seizure law. His digest, Bell's Compendium on Searches & Seizures, was an instant bestseller. <br />

Harvard Law School's stated mission is "to educate leaders who contribute to the advancement of justice and the well-being of society." But with only one-fifth of graduates pursuing public interest work after law school, Harvard Law is falling short of its mission. In this comprehensive call to action, Pete Davis examines the source of this civic deficit and proposes what, in Harvard Law's third century, the school community can do to rectify it.
