Rehumanizing Law

A Theory of Law and Democracy

eBook - 2011
Rate this:
Randy D. Gordon illustrates the bridge between narrative and law by considering whether literature can prompt legislation. Using Upton Sinclair's The Jungle and Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, Gordon shows that literary works can figure in important regulatory measures. Discussing the rule of law in relation to democracy, he reads Melville's Billy Budd and analyses the O.J. Simpson and Rodney King cases.
This highly original and creative study reconnects the law to its narrative roots by showing how and why stories become laws. --Book Jacket.
