"You can't be convicted of a crime without a guilty act and a guilty mind." A lawyer might dress the same idea up in Latin: "You can't be convicted of a crime without actus reus and mens rea." Things like that are often said, but what do people mean when they say them? Guilty Acts, Guilty Minds proposes an understanding of mens rea and actus reus as limits on the authority of a state, and in particular the authority of a democratic state, to ascribe guilt through positive law to those accused of crime. Actus reus and mens rea are necessary conditions, among others, for the legitimacy, as distinct from the justice, of state punishment. The actus reus requirement disables a democratic state from using its authority, on the one hand, to ascribe guilt to those who didn't realize they were committing a crime, provided they lacked the capacity to realize they were committing a crime; and on the other, to ascribe guilt to those who realized they were committing a crime, but who lacked the capacity to conform their conduct to the requirements of law. The mens rea requirement disables a democratic state from using its authority, on the one hand, to ascribe guilt to those who didn't realize they were committing a crime, provided their ignorance manifested no lack of law-abiding concern for the law and its ends, and on the other, to ascribe guilt to those who realized they were committing a crime, but whose failure to conform to the law nonetheless manifested no lack of law-abiding concern for the law and its ends"--

Few people associate law books with humor. Yet the legal world--in particular the American legal system--is itself frequently funny. Indeed, jokes about the profession are staples of American comedy. And there is actually humor within the world of law too: both lawyers and judges occasionally strive to be funny to deal with the drudgery of their duties. Just as importantly, though, our legal system is a strong regulator of humor. It encourages some types of humor while muzzling or punishing others. In a sense, law and humor engage a two-way feedback loop: humor provides the raw material for legal regulation and legal regulation inspires humor. In Guilty Pleasures, legal scholar Laura Little provides a multi-faceted account of American law and humor, looking at constraints on humor (and humor's effect on law), humor about law, and humor in law. In addition to interspersing amusing episodes from the legal world throughout the book, the book contains 75 New Yorker cartoons about lawyers and a preface by Bob Mankoff, the cartoon editor for the New Yorker.

Die amerikanische Bestseller-Autorin Lisa Jackson lässt ihre Detectives Rick Bentz und Reuben Montoya erneut in einem kniffligen Serienmörder-Fall ermitteln. Der Thriller „Guilty“ ist nach „Desire“ der 8. Band der Serie rund um Bentz und Montoya. In New Orleans verschwindet ein Zwillingspaar kurz vor seinem 21. Geburtstag. Der Fall weckt Erinnerungen an einen Serienmörder, den man den „Einundzwanziger-Killer“ nannte, weil er seine Opfer in einer grausigen Zeremonie an deren 21. Geburtstag tötete. Aber dieser Psychopath ist seit Jahren hinter Gittern. Oder doch nicht? Detective Rick Bentz befürchtet das Schlimmste. Zusammen mit seinem Partner Detective Reuben Montoya versucht er fieberhaft, den Killer zu fassen und das Leben der Zwillinge zu retten. Doch die Zeit rennt ihnen davon ... „Perfekt geplotteter Thriller, nervenzerreißend spannend.“ (Romantic Times Book Reviews)

Justice is as fast as a bullet… As I lie in bed with Amanda, ignoring another late-night call from my ex, a shot rings out in the New York night and a beautiful starlet dies outside the city's most popular nightclub. This is the kind of story I was born to chase—but I never dreamed this story began over a hundred years ago…. Suddenly another life is taken, the bullet fired from one of the deadliest guns ever made. Both victims are highly controversial, their murders more like public executions. My search leads me into the twisted world of The Boy—a world defined by a demented code of honor and shocking, long-buried secrets of the world's most infamous outlaw. When this assassin realizes I'm getting too close to the truth, uncovering the past could jeopardize everything I care about. Because in his world there's a fine line between good and evil, and the difference between innocence and guilt depends on who's holding the gun….

The man of her fantasies belonged to another—her daughter Slim, lovely Laura Fox didn't look like the mother of a twenty-one-year-old, although her safe, predictable life—save the occasional run-in with her headstrong daughter—quite befitted that of a country matron. Her world turned upside down when she met Jake Lombardi. Was it simply lust for something she'd never had—or did this passionate man's potent sensuality savage her emotions and lay bare the unguarded hunger of her soul? She despised him for making her want him. And oh, how Laura wanted him. But he was too young, too rich…and involved with her own daughter!
