Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?
by Michael J. SandelSearch for Michael J. Sandel
$15.00
$3.60 new/used

"For Michael Sandel, justice is not a spectator sport," The Nation's reviewer of Justice remarked. In his acclaimed book--based on his legendary Harvard course--Sandel offers a rare education in thinking through the complicated issues and controversies we face in public life today. It has emerged as a most lucid and engaging guide for those who yearn for a more robust and thoughtful public discourse. "In terms we can all understand," wrote Jonathan Rauch in The New York Times, Justice "confronts us with the concepts that lurk . . . beneath our conflicts."

Affirmative action, same-sex marriage, physician-assisted suicide, abortion, national service, the moral limits of markets--Sandel relates the big questions of political philosophy to the most vexing issues of the day, and shows how a surer grasp of philosophy can help us make sense of politics, morality, and our own convictions as well.

Justice is lively, thought-provoking, and wise--an essential new addition to the small shelf of books that speak convincingly to the hard questions of our civic life.

The fast-paced, action-packed sequel to LAWLESS.

No more teachers. No more crooks!

M Freeman thought she had finally found a place where she belonged: the Lawless School, where the children of master criminals trained to become master criminals themselves. She took her studies seriously, never suspecting she was a pawn in a dangerous game.

Now she knows the truth: The forces of Lawless are after a weapon that threatens all life on earth. M and her crew are determined to stop them - but they can't do it alone. And that means joining the Fulbright Academy.

In their ancient cops-and-robbers conflict with the Lawless School, the Fulbrights are supposed to be the good guys. But the winding subterranean hallways of the academy hide many secrets. And all the clues lead to one inescapable conclusion:

It's time for M to take the law into her own hands.

Justice
by Karen RobardsSearch for Karen Robards
$7.99
$0.01 new/used

New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards is back with an exhilarating romantic thriller that will leave readers breathless.

Feisty criminal attorney Jessica Ford has done her best to comply with the orders of the Secret Service?s unofficial witness protection program ever since she became the lone witness to the First Lady?s murder. She changed her name, dyed her dark hair blonde, and traded her sturdy black-rimmed glasses for contact lenses. Unfortunately, winning her first high-profile case for prestigious Washington, D.C., law firm Ellis Hayes, and subsequently landing her face all over the news, is not exactly ?keeping a low profile.? Or so says hunky Secret Service agent Mark Ryan, whose newest assignment?despite Jess?s stubborn protests?is keeping her safe at all costs. It just so happens he?s also her ex-boyfriend.

The trial earns Jess a permanent spot on the firm?s elite legal defense team, replacing an associate who eloped suddenly and never came back. It?s the chance of a lifetime. But Jess?s mind has raced with questions from the moment the prosecution?s star witness shocked the courtroom with an electrifying revelation involving the handsome son of a powerful U.S. senator. Was the pretty, young mother intimidated into changing her story on the stand? Why will she not return Jess?s calls? Did Jess?s ambitious predecessor on the case really just abandon her successful career? Or did both women mysteriously disappear?

After Mark rescues Jess from an attacker outside her apartment, she begins to consider the possibility that she is a target. Maybe it?s not so bad to have her irresistibly charming and hard-bodied former lover around for protection. Maybe. The question is, which of the many inadvertent enemies Jess has made recently is he protecting her from? The investigation leads her to some startling coincidences?and to a teenage runaway who may just hold the missing link . . . if Jess can find her.

As Jess hurtles closer to the truth?and the sexual tension between her and Mark grows hotter than ever?she finds herself in a race against the clock to find the answers before what she doesn?t know gets them both killed.
