Drawing upon these and similar cases, Cynthia Lee shows how two well-established, traditional criminal law defenses—the doctrines of provocation and self-defense—enable majority-culture defendants to justify their acts of violence. While the reasonableness requirement, inherent in both defenses, is designed to allow community input and provide greater flexibility in legal decision-making, the requirement also allows majority-culture defendants to rely on dominant social norms, such as masculinity, heterosexuality, and race i. At the same time, Lee examines other cases that demonstrate that the reasonableness requirement tends to exclude the perspectives of minorities, such as heterosexual women, gays and lesbians, and persons of color. Murder and the Reasonable Man not only shows how largely invisible social norms and beliefs influence the outcomes of certain criminal cases, but goes further, suggesting three tentative legal reforms to address problems of bias and undue leniency. Ultimately, Lee cautions that the true solution lies in a change in social attitudes. Ronald L.

Most helpful customer reviews 18 of 19 people found the following review helpful. Kelly this book is a great reference for those who deal in any way with the human form.

This book is essential if you are going for product design or interior design. Information is presented clearly and is easy to find. Unfortunately, they are not particularly useful ones.

As another reviewer points out, the CD is basically an advertisement. If you are buying it because you think that there is something useful on the CD, I would suggest that you are making a mistake. See all 24 customer reviews
