Bluffer's Guide to Law Instant Wit and Wisdom

Bluffer's Guide to Law Instant Wit and Wisdom

Author: Adrian Laing Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/01/2020

Instantly acquire all the knowledge you need to pass as an expert in the world of law. Know the difference between civil and criminal lawyers, jurisprudence and judicial imprudence, tort and illegal coercion (which is usually very painful). Never again plead ignorance when asked which of the following wasn't a trained lawyer: Fidel Castro, Gerard Butler, Fred MacAulay, Clive Anderson, Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and former Lord Chancellors Michael Gove, Chris Grayling and Liz Truss (answer: none of the last three). If in doubt, always fall back on the bold insistence that it isn't necessary to know anything about law to hold the highest ranking legal office of state in the UK. Bask in the admiration of your fellow legal experts as you pronounce confidently on the politics of litigation, and hold your own in any discussion about the taxonomy of legal precedent. And in moments of uncertainty always resort to the tried and tested rejoinder: I'm a lawyer, therefore I know. Alternatively, try I think our prospects of success are quite good.

The Little Book of Big Feelings An Illustrated Exploration of Life's Many Emotions

Author: Maureen Marzi Wilson Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/12/2019

From the author of the popular Introvert Doodles and Kind of Coping, Maureen Marzi Wilson is tackling all kinds of big feelings with over 175 relatable, supportive, and light-hearted comics in her signature style. We've been conditioned to think that the most acceptable response to How are you? is, I'm fine. But our emotions are much more complicated than that! Sometimes we feel a little annoyed, or elated, or afraid. And you know, that's okay! In The Little Book of Big Feelings, Maureen Marzi Wilson takes us on a journey of self-acceptance and validation. After all, our emotions are only reactions to experiences that we can learn from; there's no such thing as a bad emotion. It's okay to be scared, it's alright to feel hopeful, and it's perfectly fine to feel both at the same time. There is a wide range of human emotions, and it's time we start embracing each one!

The World According to Star Wars

The World According to Star Wars

Author: Cass R. Sunstein Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 12/12/2019

Delightful. -The Economist There's Santa Claus, Shakespeare, Mickey Mouse, the Bible, and then there's Star Wars. Nothing quite compares to sitting down with a young child and hearing the sound of John Williams's score as those beloved golden letters fill the screen. In this fun, erudite, and often moving book, Cass R. Sunstein explores the lessons of Star Wars as they relate to childhood, fathers, the Dark Side, rebellion, and redemption. As it turns out, Star Wars also has a lot to teach us about constitutional law, economics, and political uprisings. In rich detail, Sunstein tells the story of the films' wildly unanticipated success and explores why some things succeed while others fail. Ultimately, Sunstein argues, Star Wars is about freedom of choice and our never-ending ability to make the right decision when the chips are down. Written with buoyant prose and considerable heart, The World According to Star Wars shines a bright new light on the most beloved story of our time.

Humour in Contemporary France Controversy, Consensus and Contradictions

Humour in Contemporary France Controversy, Consensus and Contradictions

Author: Jonathan Ervine Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/11/2019

This timely study sheds new light on debates about humour and multiculturalism in France, and is the first monograph about multiculturalism and humour in France to be published in either English or French that analyses both debates about Charlie Hebdo and stand-up comedy. It examines humour, freedom of expression and social cohesion in France at a crucial time in France's recent history following the Charlie Hebdo attacks of January 2015. It evaluates the state of French society and attitudes to humour in France in the aftermath of the events of January 2015. This book argues that debates surrounding Charlie Hebdo, although significant, only provide part of the picture when it comes to understanding humour and multiculturalism in France. This monograph fills significant gaps in French and international media coverage and academic writing, which has generally failed to adequately examine the broader picture that emerges when one examines career trajectories of notable contemporary French comedians. By addressing this failing, this book provides a more complete picture of humour, multiculturalism and Republican values in France. By focusing primarily on contemporary comedians in France, this book explores competing uses of French Republican discourse in debates about humour, offensiveness and freedom of expression. Ultimately, this work argues that studying humour and multiculturalism in France in often reveals a sense of national unease within the Republic at a time of considerable turmoil.
