Ich erzähle hier meinen muslimisch geborenen Kindern vom Islam und von der arabischen Zivilisation - und zugleich allen Kindern, aus welchem Land sie auch kommen, welche Herkunft, Religion, Sprache und welche Hoffnungen sie auch haben. Dies ist weder eine Predigt noch ein Plädoyer. Es ist die einfache und so objektiv wie möglich erzählte Geschichte eines Mannes, der ein Prophet wurde, und auch die Geschichte einer Religion und Zivilisation, deren Beitrag zur Geschichte der Menschheit so groß war. In dieser neuen Ausgabe erkläre ich auch, wie diese Religion und ihre Prinzipien und Werte auf Abwege geführt und in den Dienst einer fanatischen Ideologie gestellt wurden. Mehr denn je muss die Unterrichtung über den Islam und andere monotheistische Religionen verbreitet und vertieft werden. Ich möchte schließlich sagen, dass der Islam mit diesem Buch den Kindern genauso wie ihren Eltern erklärt wird. Tahar Ben Jelloun

This fourth edition of Precedent in English Law presents a basic guide to the current doctrine of precedent in England, set in the wider context of the jurisprudential problems which any treatment of this topic involves. Such problems include the nature of _ratio_ _decidendi_ of a precedent and of its binding force, the significance of precedents alongside other sources of law, their role in legal reasoning, and the account which must be taken of them by any general theory of law. Considerable re-writing has been undertaken to update case-law and take account of the possible implications for the doctrine of precedent of the impact of European Community law, making it an indispensable work of reference for readers interested in the past history, present state, and future developments of English rules of precedent.

Our courts, the third branch of the government, are central in the administration of our democracy. But their operations are shrouded in a mythology with its ritual incantations of "rule of law," "equal justice" and "presumption of innocence"--one that this book pierces. We have 30,000 judges. Many are hard-working and distinguished jurists; most are simply lawyers who knew a politician. It does not help that the job pays poorly. We have no judicial profession: we do not train judges before or after they mount the bench. There is no national court system. Fifty sovereign states, a federal government, counties and municipalities and state and federal agencies all have their own courts, their own rules and not infrequently their own laws and are deluged with cases filed by a million lawyers. Today, less than 3% of criminal charges and 4% of civil disputes are resolved by court trials. The noted author argues that a specialized world demands specialized courts and judges expert in the subjects they must consider. Following the leadership of Chief Judge Judith Kaye of New York's highest court, the Conference of Chief Justices from all fifty states has endorsed her use of "problem-solving courts" to take the judiciary into the twenty-first century. The Judges is Martin Mayer's most important book from many successful titles dating from the 1950s. It opens up a debate that will occupy scholars, justices, many of the one million lawyers in our country, and law school professors and students for years to come.

Clay stößt aber auf eine Verschwörung, die seine schlimmsten Befürchtungen weit übertrifft.
