The death of old man Rice : a true story of criminal justice in America by Martin L Friedland( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sensational trials like those of the Menendez brothers and Rodney King are not unique to the age of television. Even more dramatic was one that occurred in 1900, described at the time as 'one of the most remarkable trials in all history.'. When William Marsh Rice, founder of Rice University, was found dead in his New York City quarters, suspicion immediately fell on a young lawyer, Albert Patrick. Apparently Rice had been murdered by chloroform poisoning and his will had been forged to give Patrick his vast estate. Patrick was immediately arrested and tried for first-degree murder, a crime then punishable by electrocution. In fact, the case was not quite so straightforward. Martin Friedland skillfully recounts the trial and the events leading up to it, the various appeals, and the eventual outcome. He sheds new light - and casts doubt - on a seemingly ironclad case. The Death of Old Man Rice is more than a gripping tale of murder and intrigue. Its elements resonate today: the influence of the popular press, the purchase of expert witnesses, the problems of multiple appeals, the inadequacy of penal institutions, the issue of the death penalty, and the advantage of wealth. Friedland combines a tale of high suspense with scholarship in his trademark 'whodunit' style. Over sixty photographs and illustrations, including many courtroom drawings and examples of evidence, capture the circumstances of the trial and the mood of New York City at the turn of the century. The Death of Old Man Rice is a murder mystery and a murder history, a glimpse into the world of forensic science, and that rare book that can engage any reader

"The University of Toronto is Canada's leading university and one of Canada's most important cultural and scientific institutions. In this history of the University from its origin as King's College in 1827 to the present, Martin Friedland brings personalities, events, and changing visions and ideas into a remarkable synthesis. His scholarly yet highly readable account presents colourful presidents, professors, and students, notable intellectual figures from Daniel Wilson to Northrop Frye and Marshall McLuhan, and dramatic turning points such as the admission of women in the 1880s, the University College fire of 1890, the discovery of insulin, involvement in the two world wars, the student protests of the 1960s, and the successful renewal of the 1980s and 1990s." "The first full treatment of the subject in seventy-five years, The University of Toronto: A History is published to coincide with the University's 175th anniversary. Anyone who attended the University of Toronto or who is interested in the growth of Canada's intellectual heritage will enjoy this authoritative and engaging work."--Jacket

Regulating traffic safety by Martin L Friedland( Book )

12 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traffic accidents are responsible for the greatest number of deaths each year for many age groups. At present, authorities rely heavily on policing and prosecutions to control accidents. The authors of this work examine the effectiveness of these and other techniques, and suggest alternatives that may provide better results. They particularly favour an epidemilogical approach that takes driver conduct as a given and looks for other ways to control the frequency and severity of accidents. They examine the use of rewards to encourage good driving and the use of licensing to control the exposure of high-risk drivers. The deterrent effect of civil liability and the question of no-fault insurance are also considered, as are various methods used to control drinking and driving. The authors conclude by asking for greater evaluation of the interventions used. Traffic safety research, they argue, has barely begun to confront the central policy issue: how can society get the greatest payoff from the marginal dollar spent to prevent accidents?

11 editions published between 1977 and 1997 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study examines a wide range of techniques available to control misconduct in the military, with particular emphasis on events in Somalia. The techniques employed are looked at from an historical and comparative perspective and range from rewards and administrative sanctions to the use of military police and military justice. The author recommends a number of changes including that military police have greater independence in pursuing investigations, providing additional safeguards for persons proceeded against in military tribunals, and establishing greater civilian oversight of military misconduct."--Jacket

My life in crime and other academic adventures by Martin L Friedland( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since his call to the Bar in 1960, Martin L. Friedland has been involved in a number of important public policy issues, including bail, legal aid, gun control, securities regulation, access to the law, judicial independence and accountability, and national security. My Life in Crime and other Academic Adventures offers a first-hand account of the development of these areas of law from the perspective of a man who was heavily involved in their formation and implementation. It is also the story of a distinguished academic, author, and former dean of law at the University of Toronto. Moving beyond the boundaries of conventional memoir, Friedland offers an extended meditation on public policy issues and significant events in the field of law, discussing their historical impact and predicting the course of their future development. Given his personal experience, there is no other person more suited to discuss these hugely important issues. Friedland puts the law and legal institutions into a wider context, looking at the role of personalities, politics, and pressure groups in the establishment of laws that continue to have tremendous importance for Canadians. My Life in Crime and other Academic Adventures reflects upon a life devoted to education, scholarship, and the law, and is an insider account of public policy issues that have come to shape life in this country in the twentieth century and beyond."--Pub. desc
