Download and read online The Law of Letters of Credit and Bank Guarantees in PDF and EPUB The aim of this book is to present the Australian law of letters of credit and bank guarantees. It inexorably presents overseas literature as well because the subject is by nature international and comparative, and Australian courts readily cite overseas literature, particularly from the United States, England and Canada. Hence the book focuses on the available Australian literature and utilizes some limited overseas authorities which make Australian law whole and the book more understandable. - From the Preface

Download and read online Letters of the Law in PDF and EPUB One of the hallmark features of the post–civil rights United States is the reign of colorblindness over national conversations about race and law. But how, precisely, should we understand this notion of colorblindness in the face of enduring racial hierarchy in American society? In Letters of the Law, Sora Y. Han argues that colorblindness is a foundational fantasy of law that not only informs individual and collective ideas of race, but also structures the imaginative capacities of American legal interpretation. Han develops a critique of colorblindness by deconstructing the law's central doctrines on due process, citizenship, equality, punishment and individual liberty, in order to expose how racial slavery and the ongoing struggle for abolition continue to haunt the law's reliance on the fantasy of colorblindness. Letters of the Law provides highly original readings of iconic Supreme Court cases on racial inequality—spanning Japanese internment to affirmative action, policing to prisoner rights, Jim Crow segregation to sexual freedom. Han's analysis provides readers with new perspectives on many urgent social issues of our time, including mass incarceration, educational segregation, state intrusions on privacy, and neoliberal investments in citizenship. But more importantly, Han compels readers to reconsider how the diverse legacies of civil rights reform archived in American law might be rewritten as a heterogeneous practice of black freedom struggle.

Download and read online Talmud as Philosophy in PDF and EPUB The bulk of this volume consists of readings of two sections of the Babylonian Talmud (the Bavli): the section on the “Three Kings” (who are excluded from the world to come), beginning at Sanhedrin 101b, and the section containing the “Evil Inclination” parable, beginning at Yoma 69a. In addition there are short pieces dealing with the “Ten Tribes” debate (Sanhedrin 110b), the discussion of the two Hebrew alphabets (Sanhedrin 21b), the interpretation of dreams (Berachoth 55a), the four men who “entered paradise” (Chagigah 15b), and the instruction to “give thanks for evil” (Berachoth 60b). The point of view of these readings is that of a sympathetic outsider. It was my hope as I began this project that my naivete as a student of Judaism might have its own virtue, in that I could regard the texts with fresh eyes, and might see some things that piety and respect for authority tend to render invisible. Several years later, I feel as if I have uncovered treasures beyond my wildest expectation. I have found that traditional interpretation underestimates the level of thinking in the Talmudic text, by taking it too literally. Mythic and legendary stories, along with far-fetched leaps of language, have traditionally been treated with extreme credulity and reverence, when the text demands just the opposite: a creative engagement that penetrates to the underlying ethical, political and spiritual questions. That was how the rabbis themselves proceeded. The book should appeal to secular Jews, philosophers and progressives (as well as traditionalists willing to take a fresh look). The author considers himself to be making a contribution to contemporary philosophy, as well as to the interpretation of the Talmud.
Download and read online Prostitution Sexuality and the Law in Ancient Rome in PDF and EPUB This is a study of the legal rules affecting the practice of female prostitution at Rome approximately from 200 B.C. to A.D. 250. It examines the formation and precise content of the legal norms developed for prostitution and those engaged in this profession, with close attention to their social context.
