Right and wrong by Charles Fried( Book )

28 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: Charles Fried of the Harvard Law School has made an important contribution to the literature of ethics . 'On all great subjects much remains to be said,' wrote John Stuart Mill. Professor Fried has said it with great elegance.Fried's approach is indeed an important corrective to utilitarian calculations that are often all too ready to sacrifice individuals... on the altar of the greatest good... [This is] a well-written and provocative volume, containing discussions of many important issues.The most outstanding feature of this book is the lucid account it presents of the workings of ordinary morality with regard to what the individual and the state may, may not, and must do
Saying what the law is : the constitution in the Supreme Court by Charles Fried( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a few thousand words the Constitution sets up the government of the United States and proclaims the basic human and political rights of its people. From the interpretation and elaboration of those words in over 500 volumes of Supreme Court cases comes the constitutional law that structures our government and defines our individual relationship to that government. This book fills the need for an account of that law free from legal jargon and clear enough to inform the educated layperson, yet which does not condescend or slight critical nuance, so that its judgments and analyses will engage students, practitioners, judges, and scholars." "Fried draws on his knowledge as a teacher and scholar, and on his unique experience as a practitioner before the Supreme Court, a former Associate Justice of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, and Solicitor General of the United States to offer an evenhanded account not only of the substance of constitutional law, but of its texture and underlying themes. His book firmly draws the reader into the heart of today's constitutional battles. He understands what moves today's Court and that understanding illuminates his analyses."--Jacket
Modern liberty : and the limits of government by Charles Fried( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 883 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How has the modern welfare state redefined our notion of individual liberty? Are we free to express ourselves in speech, at work, or through sex? Arguing that equality is often the most potent rival of liberty, legal philosopher and jurist Fried demonstrates how the dense tangle of government regulations both supports and threatens our personal freedoms. Illustrated with examples from contemporary life, this book is vividly relevant to the experiences and needs of everyday Americans, updated for a time when we have put fascist and Marxist tyranny firmly behind us but still confront kinder, gentler threats to our liberty.--From publisher description

Medical experimentation : personal integrity and social policy by Charles Fried( Book )

19 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1974, Charles Fried's Medical Experimentation is a classic statement of the moral relationship between doctor and patient, as expressed within the concept of personal care. This concept is then tested in the context of medical experimentation and, more specifically, the randomized controlled trial (RCT). Regularly referred to as a point of departure for ethical and legal discussions of the RCT, the book has long been out of print. This new, second edition includes a general introduction by Franklin Miller and the late Alan Wertheimer, a reprint of the 1974 text, and an in-depth analysis by Harvard Law School scholars I. Glenn Cohen and D. James Greiner which discusses the extension of RTCTs to social science and public policy contexts. The volume concludes with a new essay by Charles Fried that reflects on the original text and how it applies to the contemporary landscape of medicine and medical experimentation."--Back cover

How far can a President go to defend the nation?

Bill Moyers gets perspective from tow experts on the limits and abuses of federal power: Charles Fried, who teaches Constitutional law at Harvard Law School and served as solicitor general in the Reagan Administration, and Fritz Schwarz, who served as chief counsel to the Church Committee, which uncovered decades of abuse by the CIA and other intelligence agencies
The Miner, his job and his environment : a review and bibliography of selected recent research on human performance by Charles Fried( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a survey of the state of the art in ergonomics (human factors) as it has been applied to coal mining, approximately 1,200 references in the published literature both foreign and domestic were located. Abstracts of 49 references were prepared on such topics as the effects of environmental stress on health and productivity, accident prevention measures, protective clothing and equipment, training for safety and work, effects of the physical environment on miners, and psychological principles applied to mine problems. The report concludes that very little work has been done in the human factors of mining in the United States. Recommendations are made for research into improving the miner's working conditions. (Mf)
