"Temple's expertise was representing individuals who had chosen to place themselves in the path of history or who were victims of discrimination and injustice...These legal war stories will give readers a realistic view of what a civil rights lawyer faced in championing unpopular causes." --Publishers Weekly Praise for Ralph J. Temple: "What a master of the law he is! I know people whom I regard as great teachers, as great trial advocates, as great appellate advocates, as great lobbyists, as great negotiators. Ralph is all of those things, and he does each of them better than anyone I know...He has an absolutely extraordinary record, not just of effort, but of solid accomplishment." --Monroe H. Freedman "Of the many persons I came to admire during my years with the ACLU, I put none ahead of Ralph. He personifies the virtues that the ACLU displays at its best: a fierce commitment to civil liberty; imagination, energy, skill, and industry; integrity; persuasiveness; and a fine blend of irascibility, good humor, and anger. Ralph is moderate but never mealy-mouthed; passionate but never hysterical; moral but never pious." --Aryeh Neier, Former Executive Director, ACLU "For a lot of people coming out of law school looking for public interest jobs, there are a relative handful of people in this country who are heroes, models to be followed, people who are known among young lawyers and who are admired for the example they set. I think Ralph deserves that reputation as much as anyone I know." --Ira Glasser, Former Executive Director, ACLU "It isn't just that Ralph has a passionate concern to see that civil liberties are protected. I have that and so do you. We all share a concern to guard our constitutional rights. But Ralph Temple has the knowledge and the skill to make this concern victorious." --Hilda Howland M. Mason, District of Columbia City Council This volume comprises Ralph J. Temple's memoirs of his life and his work on behalf of the poor and disadvantaged. He was born in England on October 18, 1932. Shortly before his father was called into the Royal British Army in 1940, Temple fled with his mother by boat from the Nazi attack on London and settled in Miami, Florida. After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1956, Temple worked for Thurgood Marshall at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund until he was drafted into the United States Army. A critical formative experience was Temple's August 1964 trip to St. Augustine, Florida with the New York City Lawyers Constitutional Defense Fund, where he worked with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others to ensure compliance with the newly enacted 1964 Civil Rights Act. Moving to the American Civil Liberties Union, he soon found his calling as a civil rights and civil liberties attorney, rising to the position of Legal Director of the ACLU of the National Capital Area in Washington, DC, where he served from 1966–80. During his tenure there, he established himself in Washington as a lion ready to fight (and win) across a broad array of free speech issues. In 2008, the DC ACLU presented him with their annual Alan and Adrienne Barth Award for Exemplary Volunteer Service. Temple kept up his legal activism and civic organizing in Oregon (where he relocated in 1996), until the day he passed away on August 27, 2011. On September 18, 2011, he was recognized by the ACLU Foundation of Oregon for his brilliant and tireless work on behalf of civil liberties.

Were Thomas Jefferson alive to read this book, he would recognize every sentence, every elegant turn of phrase, every lofty, beautifully expressed idea. Indeed, every word in the book is his. In an astonishing feat of editing, Eric S. Petersen has culled the entirety of Thomas Jefferson’s published works to fashion thirty-four original essays on themes ranging from patriotism and liberty to hope, humility, and gratitude. The result is a lucid, inspiring distillation of the wisdom of one of America’s greatest political thinkers. From his personal motto—“Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God”—to his resounding discourse on “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson defined the essential truth of the American spirit. In the essays that Petersen has crafted from letters, speeches, and public documents, Jefferson’s unique moral philosophy and vision shine through. Among the hundreds of magnificent sentences gathered in this volume, here are Jefferson’s pronouncements on Gratitude: “I have but one system of ethics for men and for nations— to be grateful, to be faithful to all engagements and under all circumstances, to be open and generous.” Religion: “A concern purely between our God and our consciences.” America’s national character: “It is part of the American character to consider nothing as desperate; to surmount every difficulty with resolution and contrivance.” Public debt: “We shall all consider ourselves unauthorized to saddle posterity with our debts, and morally bound to pay them ourselves.” War: “I abhor war and view it as the greatest scourge of mankind.” In stately measured cadences, these thirty-four essays provide timeless guidance on leading a spiritually fulfilling life. Light and Liberty is a triumphant work of supreme eloquence, as uplifting today as when Jefferson first set these immortal sentences on paper.

Anderson begins his book by noting that the shock of 9/11 can in some ways be compared to the shock the Babylonians experienced in 1158 B.C. or the Romans experienced in 410 A.D. These ancient civilizations, the lessons learned from them, and the spiritual impulses they generated (Judaism and Christianity respectively), form the cultural matrix from which the modern philosophy that guided the creation of the United States Constitution emerged. Notable is Anderson s description of how, at the founding, the liberal rationalists and the pietistic revivalists were able to cooperate. This was possible through a sense of common purpose and a general philosophy broad enough to encompass the more specific philosophies of the liberals and conservatives of the day. Through his description of the issues the founding left unresolved and the pursuit of greed and power, Anderson shows how that common purpose has degenerated into the culture wars that threaten to tear the United States apart today.

This book is about a woman who refused to accept the hardscrabble life handed down by her family from generation to generation. It is the true story of life-loving Liberty who wanted more from the world than what her low station in life and her remote birth location could give her. Liberty embarked on an adventure to find a better world. Her international journey was full of hardship and struggle but she persevered. Throughout she never lost sight of her objective to break the cycle of poverty and ignorance for herself and her children. Along the way she found out what the world had to offer and what she was capable of achieving. This is a story that we have all lived to some extent, or hope to live in one form or another...a majestic tale of sadness, sweetness and ultimate success.

"Inner Revolution addresses both the history and the practical contemporary uses of Buddhism. With originality and enormous scholarship, Robert Thurman reveals the principles of the movement to celebrate individual happiness, which the Buddha initiated some 2,500 years ago, and shows how to continue it. He spreads the Buddha's message that everyone has the opportunity to become fully, completely happy and he finds hope and fascinating lessons in Tibetan Buddhism, as well as a viable way to change the world."

Much like other political issues, immigration is ultimately a debate about how to divide the economic pie - it is an issue of allocation. "The Economics of Immigration: Allocating Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness" examines the allocation mechanisms relevant to immigration and evaluates how those mechanisms affect natives and immigrants in both the short run and long run. The text begins by introducing students to the relevant economic theory and tools students need to master in order to read and understand empirical papers on this subject. Several big immigration issues are addressed in this text, including: "Why migrate?"; "Who migrates?"; and "What do immigrants do to the economy?." Although the United States is the primary focus thanks to an abundance of available data, a healthy supply of immigrants, and a robust immigration debate, many of the lessons of this text can be applied anywhere labor mobility is studied. David Bernotas received a Bachelor s degree in economics and mathematics at Macalester College and a Ph.D. in economics at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Since then, he has held positions at the University of Georgia and the University of California, San Diego. Outside of immigration issues, his research interests are environmental economics and auctions theory.
