INTERESTS: As a scholar, I am most interested in the interplay of law and society in the American past. Much of my work has focused on social values or movements and the legal system. Currently, as I revise my book on Virginia murders, I am working on a book length study of the National Woman’s Party and its litigation campaign in the 1930s to make women’s service on juries a federal right under the 14th Amendment.

Publisher Comments Categories: Healthcare Law This title is part of the Legal History list. Of Interest: A Hundred Years of Medicine Landmarks in Medicine: Laity Lectures of the New York Academy of Medicine In this fascinating book, Dr. Leonard A. Parry, a physician and Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, brings to light many interesting cases that have been passed over by the more general chronicler. Thirty-two cases, spanning the years 1615 to 1924 and chosen with a view to their historical and legal significance, give an excellent idea of the evolution of criminal jurisprudence in England. Dr. Parry appeals not only to one's curiosity for the morbid and the thrilling, but also to one's analytic instincts by taking a judiciously legalistic approach to his subject matter. As a physician, he has naturally focused on the medical evidence in the cases, while underlining the problematic and intellectual aspects. Not all deal with murder. They present a panoply of treason, medical forgery, abortion, rebellion, torture, libel, and assault. Based on a well-planned and well-balanced record of original sources, the cases are as valuable to the student of legal medicine and to the amateur criminologist, as they are irresistible to the lover of grim and gruesome melodrama.

Preface IN 1943 FOR THE first time the United States Supreme Court undertook to review a conviction for treason. The Court granted a writ of certiorari in Cramer v. United States Cramer v. United States , 325 U. S. 1, 8, note 9 (1945) took note of the relation between the work of several scholars in addition to that of counsel: Counsel for petitioner [Mr. Harold R. Medina], although assigned by the trial court, has responded with extended researches. The Solicitor General engaged scholars not otherwise involved in conduct of the case [including Dr. Elio Gianturco, Research Assistant to the Foreign Law Section of the Law Library of Congress, Dr. V. Gsovski, Chief of the Foreign Law Section of that Law Library, and Dr. Stephan G.

Vol. 13 No. 7 (July 2003) RACE ON TRIAL: LAW AND JUSTICE IN AMERICAN HISTORY by Annette Gordon-Reed (Editor). New York: Oxford University Press, 2002. 234 pp. Cloth $55.00. ISBN: 0-19-512279-8. Paper $19.95. ISBN: 0-19-512280-1. Reviewed by Daniel Lipson, Department of Political Science, Kalamazoo College. Email: Throughout our nation's history, few events have captured Americans' attention more than "race on trial." Whether DRED SCOTT, PLESSY, BROWN, LOVING, KOREMATSU, the O.J. Simpson trial, or last month's GRATZ and GRUTTER cases on the University of Michigan affirmative action policies, cases and controversies regarding slavery, segregation, miscegenation, internment, violent crime, police abuse, and affirmative action have struck a chord in the American character. Most of the cases in Annette Gordon-Reed's RACE ON TRIAL: LAW AND JUSTICE IN AMERICAN HISTORY have been thoroughly examined by legal studies scholars. Indeed, much of the groundbreaking work by legal studies scholars has moved legal scholarship forward by examining what is lost by relying on seminal court cases as the central source of legal data, uncovering the law as it operates in practice after courts issue their rulings and in areas where there are no court rulings. Yet this volume returns to the formal analysis of court cases. Gordon-Reed acknowledges the important drawbacks in "studying the operation of law – created, practiced, and administered as it is by elites – as a firm guidepost to what is actually going on in a culture" (p.4). Nonetheless, this important critique of an elite-based analysis of formal law is sidelined, as the book focuses on twelve trials. She defends this formal case method of legal and racial analysis by asserting that "cases – trials in particular – provide critical insights into the values, mores, obsessions, and aspirations (lived up to and not) of members of the community at particular moments in history" (p.4). The remaining chapters could be improved through greater attention to the ways in which a law-in-action approach would supplement or challenge the authors' analyses.

Others who have written about celebrated trials have pointed in the direction that Felman has now fully articulated, but no one has pushed the analysis of the unconscious of the trial in the fruitful ways Felman has. Not everyone will be sympathetic to her arguments/analysis, but it is fair to say that no one working at the intersection of law and social science can afford to ignore them. Not only do they provide a theoretical lens that has been missing in the analysis of trials, they show Felman to know the details of the trials about which she writes. She has a firm handle on the legal meaning and nuance of those trials. She sacrifices nothing in the way of legal sophistication to achieve her theoretical objectives.
THE JURIDICAL UNCONSCIOUS begins with a reading of Walter Benjamin. More and more legal scholars are turning to Benjamin, parsing his dense and difficult essay on the critique of violence for its insights about the various forms of law’s intimate connection to violence. Felman turns to Benjamin for another purpose, to examine his thought about the connection of history and justice or, more precisely, about how the claims of justice speak in and through history. In her view, one of the urgencies of law in the late twentieth century was “to put history on trial.” (P. 11). Nuremberg was, she suggests, the turning point. It changed our conception of what law and trials could and should do.

Paper ISBN 0-7006-1246-7, $14.95 SELECTION OF THE HISTORY BOOK CLUB The suspected conspiracy in New York prompted one of the most extensive slave trials in colonial history and some of the most grisly punishments ever meted out to individuals. Peter Hoffer now retells the dramatic story of those landmark trials, setting the events in their legal and historical contexts and offering a revealing glimpse of slavery in colonial cities and of the way that the law defined and policed the institution. Among other things, Hoffer reveals how conspiracy became a central feature of the law of slavery at the same time as it reflected the white belief that slaves were always conspiring against their masters. He draws on uniquely revealing firsthand accounts of the trials to both retell a gripping story and open a window on colonial American justice. He leads readers through a chain of events involving robbery and arson that culminated in the trials of a group of white men suspected of inciting the slaves to revolt. The episode, so vital to our understanding of a time when slavery was an entrenched institution and the law made even the angry muttering of slaves into a criminal act, has much to tell us about current affairs as well. African slaves in colonial times were viewed by authorities and citizens much as some foreigners are today: inherently dangerous, easily identifiable, and constantly conspiring.

Digital Projects
The Harvard Law School Library is becoming increasingly involved in the acquisition, development, and management of digital information. The Library's network now provides access to a growing database of free Web resources; to an expanding number of bibliographic databases, electronic data files, and full-text resources through the Harvard Libraries gateway ; to commercial online services licensed directly by the Library; and to a large assortment of CD-ROM publications. As a means of delivering timely and important information, legal scholarship online has become highly effective and is widely demanded. To date, digital resources of the Harvard Law School Library account for just over 5% of our total holdings. However, this percentage is expected to grow. Although digital materials at the Library take many forms, a distinction can be made between electronic resources that we subscribe to or license, and digital projects that we create in-house. Digital projects can be primarily represented in four different areas:
  • Conversion/digital reformatting projects Online exhibits Electronic publications and research guides Web publishing and archiving projects
Even though the distinctions separating these categories can many times be somewhat fuzzy (for instance, online exhibits usually involve converting some physical material), as a way of understanding the different types of digital projects undertaken here at HLSL they are a good place to start.

Burke and Hare
In Edinburgh’s sensational body-snatching trial of 1828, William Burke was tried and sentenced to death, while his equally notorious accomplice William hare got off scot-free for turning King’s Evidence. The pair of them had murdered to provide bodies for an anatomist to dissect, Burke was hanged before a vast crowd in January 1829 and his corpse was hanged over to the College of Surgeons ironically, for purposes of dissection.
A Perfectly Ordinary Little Case
Mr. Mervyn Griffith-Jones, prosecutor at the lady Chatterley trial, has been immortalized for asking jury members whether they would ‘wish your wife or servants to read it?’ But he is almost as well remembered for another splendid utterance in a different trial. ‘It is a perfectly ordinary little case of a man charged with indecency with four or five guardsmen,’ he said.
Not naughty Enough
Times have changed since lady Chatterley trial. In May 1984, a 26-year-old Sussex plumber filed a complaint against a local sex-shop, claiming that five pornographic videos he had hired to view with his ex-wife were not explicit enough. The court at Worthing found in his favour, awarding a
