Representing Justice

Invention, Controversy, and Rights in City-States and Democratic Courtrooms

Dennis Curtis, Judith Resnik

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.
