The family unit has been a central theme in movies since the earliest days of the medium- whether as a locus of domestic bliss, a dysfunctional source of drama, a collection of comic personalities or an inferno of repressed feelings. This new anthology brings the subject into sharp focus, collecting a range of multidisciplinary perspectives that attempt to directly penetrate the questions raised by the role of the family onscreen. Discussing a wide range of contemporary and classic films, fromHouse of Strangers (1949) and Mary Poppins (1964) to Superstar (1987),The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) and Brokeback Mountain (2005), this study addresses the nature of family values in cinema, and the 'family' nature of the Hollywood production system itself. With a wealth of historical background and contemporary analysis, this volume is a penetrating view of the oldest and most influential social institution as imagined for the screen.
The right to a fair trial is often held as a central constitutional protection. It nevertheless remains unclear what precisely should count as a 'fair' trial and who should decide verdicts. This already difficult issue has become even more important given a number of proposed reforms of the trial, especially for defendants charged with terrorism offences. This collection, The Right to a Fair Trial, is the first to publish in one place the most influential work in the field covering a number of topics, including the idea of a fair trial, the right to jury trial and lay participation in trials, jury nullification, trial reform, the civil trial, and the more recent issue of terrorism trials. The collection should help inform both scholars and students coming to the area for the first time of both the importance and complexity of the right to a fair trial, as well as shed light on how the trial might be further improved.
