This anthology brings together forty law-related short stories by writers from various times and places, including Boccaccio, Tolstoy, Poe, de Maupassant, Kafka, Cather, and Asimov. The stories demonstrate how writers have dealt with topics such as equality, finding the truth, capital punishment, and murder and domestic relations. The section introductions draw upon philosophy, psychology, literature, and law to point to the jurisprudential issues, and the reader is able to reflect on these timeless legal and ethical concerns. The volume concludes with lists of law-related fiction and films.
