Invention, Controversy, and Rights in City-States and Democratic Courtrooms
In this illustrated study, the authors explore the evolving relationship between courts and democracy through the iconography of Justice, in both the figure of a blindfolded woman holding scales and a sword and the architecture of courthouses, from antiquity to the present. The book discusses how democracy has changed processes of adjudication; the emergence of rights to equal justice; and how the move from public to private arbitration and mediation poses a problem for democracies.
