The Province of Legislation Determined: Legal Theory in Eighteenth-Century Britain

Přední strana obálky
Cambridge University Press, 18. 7. 2002 - Počet stran: 328
A comprehensive account of English legal thought in the age of Blackstone and Bentham for nearly a century, The Province of Legislation Determined advances an ambitious reinterpretation of eighteenth-century attitudes to social change and law reform. Professor Lieberman's bold synthesis rests on a wide survey of legal materials and on a detailed discussion of Blackstone's Commentaries, the jurisprudence of Lord Kames and the Scottish Enlightenment, the chief justiceship of Lord Mansfield, the penal theories of Eden and Romilly, and the legislative science of Jeremy Bentham. The study relates legal developments to the broader fabric of eighteenth-century social and political theory, and offers a novel assessment of the character of the common law tradition and of Bentham's contribution to the ideology of reform.

O autorovi (2002)

Psychologist Dr. David Lieberman writes best-selling, easy-to-understand, self-help books which identify and analyze problematic behaviors and present simple solutions for dealing with them. In "Instant Analysis: How You Can Understand - And Change - the Most Common, Puzzling, Annoying, Self-Defeating Behaviors and Habits" (1997), readers can identify their own destructive behaviors, such as procrastination and eating disorders, outlined in 100 concise chapters. Lieberman then gives practical, jargon-free suggestions designed to break up negative routines and alter conditioned thought patterns. In "Never Be Lied to Again: How to Get the Truth In 5 Minutes Or Less In Any Conversation Or Situation" (1998), Lieberman outlines 46 clues to deception, including body language, facial expressions, sentence structure, and word choice, and presents a plan of action that becomes a "human lie detector." The reader learns to recognize the signs of untruth and is taught specific techniques for exposing lies. Human behaviorist Lieberman holds a Ph.D in psychology and is a board-certified hypnotherapist as well as a nationally recognized leader in the field of short-term therapy. He has presented his theories on television and in audiocassette format, as well as in workshops he facilitates throughout the United States. David Lieberman's trademarked treatment for this revolutionary new process is called Neuro Dynamic Analysis.
