From the Publisher"The ostensible polarity between reason and emotion is central to many approaches to law. Susan Bandes offers valuable criticism of this view by noting the important roles that emotion and passion in fact play within the law. She has also brought together an outstanding collection of essays that, by addressing the issue from all perspectives, allows the reader to confront the issue in all of its complexity."
-Sanford Levinson,coeditor of Constitutional Stupidities/Constitutional Tragedies
"This splendid collection of engaging, user-friendly essays reveals in vivid detail how emotions are as much a part of the fabric of law as of the rest of life. Among the verdicts that emerge from these careful explorations is the long-overdue acquittal of passion on the charge of always sabotaging reason and justice."
-Elizabeth V. Spelman,Professor, Smith College, and author of Fruits of Sorrow: Framing Our Attention to Suffering
"An exciting intellectual adventure. If that type of voyage interests you, almost any page of this book will be a trip."
-New York Law Journal,
