Bad Acts and Guilty Minds by Leo Katz

Book Description

With wit and intelligence, Leo Katz seeks to understand the basic rules and concepts underlying the moral, linguistic, and psychological puzzles that plague the criminal law. "Bad Acts and Guilty Minds ...revives the mind, it challenges superficial analyses, it reminds us that underlying the vast body of statutory and case law, there is a rationale founded in basic notions of fairness and reason...It will help lawyers to better serve their clients and the society that permits attorneys to hang out their shingles."--Edward N. Costikyan, New York Times Book Review

Why the Law is So Perverse by Leo Katz Why the Law is So Perverse, Paperback (November 2012)

Conundrums, puzzles, and perversities: these are the author's stock-in-trade. In this book, he focuses on four fundamental features of our legal system, all of which seem to not make sense on some level and to demand explanation. It contains explanations and apt examples that show why the perversity of the law resists any easy resolutions.

Ill Gotten Gains by Leo Katz Ill Gotten Gains, Paperback (June 1998)

This work describes the underlying principles that not only guide the law, but also moral decisions. Mixing wit with insight, anecdotes with analysis, the book uncovers what is really at stake in such crimes as insider trading, blackmail and plagiarism.
