            Just Mercy: a story of justice and redemption (EPUB ebook)

            By Stevenson, Bryan

            A true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice. It is at once an account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer's coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an argument for compassion... in the pursuit of justice.

            Human Rights and Civil Liberties (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            Protecting and promoting human rights, including civil liberties, is about making sure that basic safeguards for equality and fairness are in place so that we can prevent the violation of rights, and provide remedies when a violation does occur. Following a recent national consul...tation over a charter or bill of rights aimed at dealing with some controversial issues and emerging human rights principles, the Federal Government has decided it will not be introducing a Human Rights Act in Australia, but rather a new human rights framework. Protecting and promoting human rights requires balancing the interests of individuals and groups with the interests of society including security, public health and public order. This book examines Australia's human rights record and a range of opinions in the debate over adequate and appropriate human rights protection. Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.

            Doping and Drugs in Sport (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            The use of illegal performance-enhancing drugs in elite sport, known as doping, is hidden in nature and increasingly widespread. Recent local and international doping scandals involving professional cyclists and football players have brought the issue of drugs in sport under grea...ter scrutiny. Catching drug cheats is essential if sports are to be conducted fairly and if harmful health effects from drug abuse are to be avoided. A number of sports are plagued by suspicions that many top athletes resort to drug-taking to enhance their performance through the use of such substances as anabolic steroids, human growth hormone, erythropoietin (EPO), beta-blockers, stimulants and diuretics. This book examines anti-doping regulation in Australia and globally, and presents a range of opinions on the ethics of drugs in sport. Elite sports people are always seeking a competitive edge, to break records and win, sometimes at an ethical cost. What substances and methods are considered doping, and how can regulation and testing ensure all athletes have a sporting chance? Should drug cheats continue to be punished for doping, or should doping be made legal? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.

            Battle For The Marble Palace: Abe Fortas, Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and the Forging of the Modern Supreme Court
             

            Battle For The Marble Palace: Abe Fortas, Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and the Forging of the Modern Supreme Court (EPUB ebook)

            By Bobelian, Michael

            1968 was a particularly tumultuous year in American history. The escalating war in Vietnam, the riots during the Democratic Convention, and the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy left a scar on the national consciousness. But one great battle that took pl...ace during this time is barely recalled. The nomination of Abe Fortas for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court launched an all-out cultural war that would determine the course of major court cases for years to come. Award-winning judicial journalist and Supreme Court reporter Michael Bobelian brings us right into the halls where this fierce battle raged, pitting Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic Party against Richard Nixon and the GOP in a fight that ended in the defamation of Fortas, the first Jew ever nominated for the highest judicial office. Written in vivid detail, the narrative unfolds in a series of dramatic vignettes, from the landmark ruling of Brown vs. Board of Education to the chaos on the floor of the Democratic Convention. Readers are given a behind the scenes look at the camaraderie among the retiring Chief Justice Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, and Fortas-and will witness, with them, the rise of Richard Nixon as the fate of the liberal court is decided.
