For the people : what the constitution really says about your rights by Akhil Reed Amar( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When serving on a jury, can you ever interpret the Constitution yourself? When threatened by your city's taking of your property, do you have any recourse aside from lobbying or voting the bums out in the next election? If you disagree with a Supreme Court decision, is there anything you can do? In this bold and groundbreaking book, Akhil Reed Amar and Alan Hirsch answer "yes" to these questions and invite you to rediscover your Constitution. Over time, our rich constitutional rights have been obscured, along with this essential truth: We own our government, and government officials operate at our discretion. To preserve that ownership, the Framers of the Constitution gave the People crucial rights and responsibilities - which, regrettably, have faded from view. At the ballot box, in the Jury room, and on the battlefield, the People wield far more rights than we generally realize. We - all of us, black and white, male and female, straight and gay - are sovereign in our own nation. We are the rulers; government officials are our servants. It is high time to rediscover the true meaning of our Constitution

The Duke of Wellington, kidnapped! : the incredible true story of the art heist that shocked a nation by Alan Hirsch( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1961, a thief broke into the National Gallery in London and committed the most sensational art heist in British history. He stole the museum's much prized painting, The Duke of Wellington by Francisco Goya. Despite unprecedented international attention and an unflagging investigation, the case was not solved for four years, and even then, only because the culprit came forward voluntarily. Kempton Bunton, an elderly gentleman, claimed he executed the theft armed with only a toy gun, a disguise purchased for five shillings, and a getaway car inadvertently provided by a drunkard. Shortly after turning himself in, Bunton also invoked language in an obscure law to maintain his innocence, despite the confession. He did not allege that the confession was false, but rather that stealing the painting did not constitute a crime because he intended to return it. On account of this improbable defense strategy, the story took another twist, resulting in a bizarre courtroom drama and extraordinary verdict. Over fifty years later, Alan Hirsch decided to explore the facts behind this historic case and uncovered shocking new evidence that both solved the crime and deepened the mystery."--

Impeaching the president : past, present, and future by Alan Hirsch( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Impeaching the President is lucid, balanced, and deeply informed. Anyone in search of a reasoned guide to the unreason of our current situation should read it."-Elizabeth Kolbert, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sixth Extinction "Ousting a president is a complicated and uncertain endeavor, according to this perceptive study of impeachments. . . . [This book] shrewdly assesses the impeachability of President Trump based on his alleged offenses . . . . Hirsch's lucid prose and careful analysis make the book a fine corrective to cavalier popular rhetoric surrounding discussions of impeachment."-- Publishers Weekly "Amid the partisan passion, an illuminating primer of analysis and context lowers the temperature on this hot-button issue. . . . A cogent analysis that builds a common-sense case for proceeding with caution and against using impeachment as a partisan weapon."--Kirkus Reviews " The reader gets a hearty mix of American history, political intrigue, and constitutional law, all adhered with Hirsch's amazing writing. He captures the political chaos surrounding each prior case, yanking the reader out of our present exceptionalism to see the evolution of impeachment with the proper context and clarity. Can't recommend it enough."--Travis Cohen, Brookline Booksmith, MA "In an era when the notion of impeachment is tossed around as the ultimate political indictment, Alan Hirsch guides us with a steady hand through our own history to consider the three presidents who faced that ultimate punishment. This is a sober, precise, and carefully argued analysis that should be read by every member of Congress-and every president."-David K. Shipler, former reporter for the New York Times and Pulitzer Prize recipient "Alan Hirsch brings clarity, wisdom, and wit to a contentious and critical subject. Impeaching the President is must reading for all concerned citizens."-Howard Shapiro, former FBI General Counsel "Incredibly readable, well-researched, analytically sound and important."-Alan B. Morrison, Associate Dean for Public Interest & Public Service at the George Washington Law School It seems quite possible that President Trump will be impeached. Concerns about connections with Russia's attack on our elections, obstruction of justice, illicit business deals, and compromised classified intelligence dominate the news. Robert Mueller's fast-moving investigation has already resulted in arrests, indictments, guilty pleas, and high-level cooperating witnesses. Anything can happen. In response to the complexity of a rapidly evolving situation, constitutional scholar Alan Hirsch offers clear and to-the-point guidance for all matters relating to removing a sitting president-from the Founder's constitutional protections against e
The beauty of short hops : how chance and circumstance confound the moneyball approach to baseball by Sheldon Hirsch( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This critical text exposes the fatal flaws of sabermetrics, demonstrating how it fails on its own terms, as it cannot evaluate baseball in terms of social science and offers only limited guidance for assembling a team and managing games. Drawing on examples from baseball past and present, baseball is presented and examined as a compelling and vibrant sport"--Provided by publisher

Movements that change the world : five keys to spreading the gospel by Steve Addison( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Jesus commissioned his followers, he was not just inaugurating the historical church, he was founding a missionary movement. Originally released by Missional Press and now revised and expanded to include a multi-session discussion guide, Steve Addison's Movements That Change the World draws from biblical, historical and contemporary case studies to isolate the essential elements of a dynamic missionary movement. The church fulfills its mission today to the extent that it honors these essential elements, modelled perfectly in Jesus' missionary enterprise: white-hot faith, commitment to the cause, contagious relationships, rapid mobilization, adaptive methods. Throughout the ages Jesus' followers have been called to continue his movement in the power of the Holy Spirit. Like many such movements, it changed the world. Unlike most movements, which have their historical moment and then fade away, Christianity is actively, continually changing the world for the better
