8 BALLENGER, THOMAS LEE; SMITH, CHAD (FOREWORD). The Development Of Law And Legal Institutions Among The Cherokees.
Cherokee National Press, Norman: 2010. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Before the arrival of Europeans to North America, Cherokee Indians practiced a form of justice called blood law, or clan law. In this system, responsibility for the punishment of a homicide fell to the clan of the victim. In the nineteenth century, following the forced removal of tribal members to Indian Territory, the Cherokee Nation developed a court system that is still in use today. In this thorough account, Thomas Lee Ballenger traces the history of Cherokee justice from its traditional beginnings to the development of its modern-day institutions. The Development of Law and Legal Institutions among the Cherokees was submitted by Ballenger to the University of Oklahoma as his doctoral dissertation in 1937. Although he later published many books, his dissertation was never published during his lifetime. Yet this work contains research and information still valuable and pertinent for today's readers and scholars. Here, Ballenger describes how the Cherokee Nation adapted legal ideals and customs to create an efficient government and debunks popular inaccuracies about American Indians. During his research, he interviewed many Cherokee people, including judges and law officers, who were active participants in the Cherokee Nation's legal system in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Ballenger's work serves as significant documentation of a strong judicial system, developed by an advanced people who, in the face of adversity, were able to survive, adapt, prosper, and excel.

I've written this book to show good doctors how they can keep off that hook, or get off it once they're on it." Includes an Index.

16 BOYER, ALLEN D. Sir Edward Coke And The Elizabethan Age.
Stanford University Press, Stanford: 2003. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Sir Edward Coke (1552-1634), the first judge to strike down a law, gave us modern common law by turning medieval common law inside-out. Through his resisting strong-minded kings, he bore witness for judicial independence. Coke is the earliest judge still cited routinely by practicing lawyers. This book breaks new ground as the first scholarly biography of Coke, whose most recent general biography appeared in 1957, and draws revealingly on Coke's own papers and notebooks. The book covers Coke's early life and career, to the end of the reign of Elizabeth I in 1603 (a second volume will cover Coke's career under James I and Charles I). In particular, this book highlights Coke's close connection with the Puritans of England; his learning, legal practice, and legal theory; his family life and ambitious dealings; and the treason cases he prosecuted. Allen Boyer is senior appellate counsel for the Department of Enforcement of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. "[Boyer] brings his subject vividly to life and writes with verve adn imagination, presenting a well-structured, comprehensive and impressively researched book that serves both the legal historian and the general reader very well. Sir Edward Coke and the Elizabethan Age should be considered by any student of Elizabethan history because, in exploring a great lawyer and the law, it also sheds light on politics, religion, culture and society. I will not be alone in looking forward to the second volume."—Renaissance Studies

20 BYBEE, KEITH J. All Judges Are Political—except When They Are Not: Acceptable Hypocrisies And The Rule Of Law.
Stanford University Press, Stanford: 2010. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
We live in an age where one person's judicial "activist" legislating from the bench is another's impartial arbiter fairly interpreting the law. After the Supreme Court ended the 2000 Presidential election with its decision in Bush v. Gore, many critics claimed that the justices had simply voted their political preferences. But Justice Clarence Thomas, among many others, disagreed and insisted that the Court had acted according to legal principle, stating: "I plead with you, that, whatever you do, don't try to apply the rules of the political world to this institution; they do not apply." The legitimacy of our courts rests on their capacity to give broadly acceptable answers to controversial questions. Yet Americans are divided in their beliefs about whether our courts operate on unbiased legal principle or political interest. Comparing law to the practice of common courtesy, Keith Bybee explains how our courts not only survive under these suspicions of hypocrisy, but actually depend on them. Law, like courtesy, furnishes a means of getting along. It frames disputes in collectively acceptable ways, and it is a habitual practice, drummed into the minds of citizens by popular culture and formal institutions. The rule of law, thus, is neither particularly fair nor free of paradoxical tensions, but it endures. Although pervasive public skepticism raises fears of judicial crisis and institutional collapse, such skepticism is also an expression of how our legal system ordinarily functions. Keith J. Bybee is Paul E. and the Hon. Joanne F. Alper '72 Judiciary Studies Professor at Syracuse University College of Law. He is the editor of Bench Press: The Collision of Courts, Politics, and the Media (Stanford University Press, 2007). "Bybee offers a truly fresh and important response to one of the most important questions in the cultural study of law: how can law sustain its legitimacy in the face of the understanding that it is essentially political? Arguing that law's hypocrisy actually strengthens it, Bybee makes a connection to courtesy that is really quite ingenious and illuminating. This is a wonderful new vehicle for understanding how courts work."—Austin Sarat, Amherst College
