THE MORAL DECISION: Right and Wrong in the Light of American Law

A book which students of law would do well to take as basic principle, for here is a human approach to everyday moral issues met frequently in law. Mr. Cahn takes the rights of individuals, the moral aspects of cheating on taxes, the effect on character of many Of the problems encountered in life- marriage, divorce, suicide, the honesty- and its reverse- in business competition. He uses actual cases, which adds to its value for practising lawyers, who will enjoy recognizing parallels in experience. All of which makes this an excellent book to use with small study groups, discussion groups, etc. But its main sale will be to law schools, where his selection of illustrative cases indicates his own skill as a teacher. Each case has popular and human appeal. In style and presentation, a better book than Judge Frank's on a similar topic. Recommend for extra curriculum enjoyment.
