Doesn’t radical Islamic terrorism deserve a worthy Christian opponent? What will a Russian call-girl demand from the director of the Topkapi Museum as compensation for a night of ultimate pleasure? Is her lucrative fee the control of a sacrilegious ancient document, or something infinitely more sinister? Can two retired WW II veterans retain their cool and spoil her devilish plans or will they succumb to her treacherous charms and become the latest innocent tourist casualties of the war on terror? If an interest in similar questions exists or if a trip to Istanbul is contemplated in the near future, this book serves well both as a travel guide and as a warning of what might happen to a tourist in the City of the World’s Desires.

The Fallacy in the Promise

I think the third judge drew the map on courtroom skullduggery regarding how to reach a false, coerced confession. But I was not buying it! So if that does not work, the next step is to plant some evidence, or write a confession on ...

Taking his readers through a grueling, eighteen-year-long psycho-legal odyssey, Jabari Gravy recounts the failures of our legal justice system, from legal training to jurisprudence. He also offers a breathtaking portrayal of borderline personality disorder through his relationship with his wife. His story reveals the legal scandal of their divorce and the exploitation of mental illness by his wife and a state court system. In stunning detail, Gravy dissects, exposes, and gives a definitive and vividly dramatic account of furtive judicial abuse of authority, painting a disturbing tableau of what actually happens in our courtrooms: their underlying design, organizational values, and daily operationsillustrating how the clandestine and undocumented come to deny directly and categorically the compelling public court record. Through a revealing window on how innocent people are railroaded to injustice with loss of livelihood, liberty, and life, he inextricably entwines the African-American experience with his other material, demonstrates the ominous secret cracks in our justice system, unveils a monolithic legal culture represented by gladiatorial back-scratching court functionaries who marginalize non-dominate cultures and inflict real casualtiesboth at the micro level, on the lives of ordinary people, and at the national level as our democracy is secretively eroded. Gravy concludes that pretty paper is not justice, and demands change.

Confessions

... solace in which confession allows for that mode of 'forgiveness' in which we forget the distance that separates us, or that allows us to'identify' with each other in a fallacious intimacy that is sometimes called 'reconciliation'.

This book is available as open access through the Bloomsbury Open Access programme and is available on www.bloomsburycollections.com. This book explores what is at stake in our confessional culture. Thomas Docherty examines confessional writings from Augustine to Montaigne and from Sylvia Plath to Derrida, arguing that through all this work runs a philosophical substratum - the conditions under which it is possible to assert a confessional mode - that needs exploration and explication. Docherty outlines a philosophy of confession that has pertinence for a contemporary political culture based on the notion of 'transparency'. In a postmodern 'transparent society', the self coincides with its self-representations. Such a position is central to the idea of authenticity and truth-telling in confessional writing: it is the basis of saying, truthfully, 'here I take my stand'. The question is: what other consequences might there be of an assumption of the primacy of transparency? Two areas are examined in detail: the religious and the judicial. Docherty shows that despite the tendency to regard transparency as a general social and ethical good, our contemporary culture of transparency has engendered a society in which autonomy (or the very authority of the subject that proclaims 'I confess') is grounded in guilt, reparation and victimhood.

Jesus continued : “ Thou couldest steal with the lame man : how canst thou say , then , ' I cannot ' ? ” The lame man was brought forward ; and now the two confessed their theft , and all suspicion was removed from the other beggars .
