The Puzzle of Equality

£25.00

Product description

"Equality is a concept highly complex,and further, it is one beset with paradox." So starts this book derived from a LLM thesis at the University of Virginia. A qualified lawyer with a high reputation in the US, Sokol here explores the inherent difficulties and intricacies of Equality. It is a fascinating amalgam of US law, philosophy and Alice in Wonderland.

The Michie Company (law publishers) hardback with no DJ. No marks and good binding. Owner's name in ink on ffep.

"As a philosophical concept the doctrine or dogma of Equality was essentially meaningless. As a philosophical tool it was useless. But as a battle cry in a context of emotion, as a war whoop in times of crisis, as a trumpeter's call to action the idea of Equality had been in the past, and no doubt would remain in the future, an idea of overwhelming importance" .
