No Island of Sanity: Paula Jones V. Bill Clinton: The Supreme Court on Trial (Library of Contemporary Thought)

No Island of Sanity: Paula Jones V. Bill Clinton: The Supreme Court on Trial (Library of Contemporary Thought) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Library of Contemporary Thought is a groundbreaking series that tackles today's most provocative, fascinating, relevant issues. Original and daring, creative and important, these respected voices on matters political, social, economic, and cultural will enlighten, comfort, enrage, and entertain.

Each book is long enough to get to the heart of the subject, short enough to read in one sitting. Some are think pieces. Some are research oriented. Some are journalistic in nature. The form is wide open, but the aim is the same: to say things that need saying. Appearing on a monthly basis, the titles in The Library of Contemporary Thought will excite anyone interested in the most pressing issues of the day.

"I cannot credit the Court with balancing the interests of Paula Jones and the public without thereby convicting them of something more damning. Because if this is true, their sense of importance and priorities, their sense of values and balance is so askew, so defective, that they think one citizen's right to have her day in court, not just eventually but right now, is absolute and more important than the rights of the 260,000,000 people of this nation to have the Office of the Presidency functioning effectively every day of the year".

Synopsis:

The Library of Contemporary Thought is an important new series that gives top opinion makers a forum to explore topics that matter urgently to them and their readers. In this volume, well-known attorney and author Vincent Bugliosi delivers a searing indictment of the Supreme Court's arrogance (and ignorance) in the Paula Jones v. Bill Clinton case. Available

Synopsis:

" One would like to think that the U.S. Supreme Court, the highest Court in the land, is the one island of sanity still remaining. But if what you folks are about to read is any indication, we've all got a lot to worry about. The question that presents itself is whether the near pathological dizziness and irrationality in our society has so invaded this nation's marrow that, like a wild-infectious virus, even the Supreme Court is not immune."

--from NO ISLAND OF SANITY

Now, in the powerful premiere of the Library of Contemporary Thought, Vincent Bugliosi takes a timely swipe at the Supreme Court's decision in Paula Jones v. Bill Clinton. Famed as the prosecutor of Charles Manson and author of the classic bestseller HELTER SKELTER, Bugliosi argues that the high court has rarely been proved so wrong, so fast.

NO ISLAND OF SANITY is only the beginning of an ongoing dialogue with some of the most original writers working today. Each month, the Library of Contemporary Thought will bring you a different voice on a hot-button topic in American life, politics, and culture. From Mickey Mouse to Tiger Woods, from how we age to how we read, no subject is too controversial or too unlikely for these powerful and provocative books.

About the Author

Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964 from the UCLA Law School. In his career as a prosecutor for the Los Angeles Country District Attorney's office, he won 105 out of 106 felony jury trials. His most famous trial was the Charles Manson case, which became the basis of his classic bestselling book, Helter Skelter. Both Helter Skelter and his subsequent Till Death Do Us Part won Edgar Allan Poe Awards for best true-crime book of the year. His next true-crime book, And the Sea Will Tell, was #1 on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list, as was his most recent book, Outrage: The Five Reasons Why O. J. Simpson Got Away With Murder.
