But she's got a new book due out, exposing discriminatory practices by several prominent corporations, and it's pretty clear some of those enemies want her dead. 'Crackling dialogue, plenty of action and expert writing' New York Times Book Review Her publishers, insisting she has a bodyguard, hire the biggest toughest guy they can find: Spenser, the tough guy with a macho code of honour, hired to protect a feminist who thinks that code is obsolete. 'Nobody does it better' Publishers Weekly Privately, they will never see eye to eye - that's why she fires him - but when Rachel vanishes, Spenser starts rattling skeletons in blue-blooded family closets and tangling with the Ku Klux Klan, ready to lay his life on the line to find Rachel Wallace.

From Hawk to Susan Silverman to Jesse Stone and Sunny Randall, from the series' Boston milieu to Parker's own take on his character, In Pursuit of Spenser pays tribute to Spenser, and Parker, with affection, humor, and a deep appreciation for what both have left behind.

Download or read Law and Popular Culture PDF, written by Michael Asimow and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2014-06-12 with total page 425 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Commentators have noted the extraordinary impact of popular culture on legal practice, courtroom proceedings, police departments, and government as a whole, and it is no exaggeration to say that most people derive their basic understanding of law from cultural products. Movies, television programs, fiction, children’s literature, online games, and the mass media typically influence attitudes and impressions regarding law and legal institutions more than law and legal institutions themselves. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives enhances the appreciation of the interaction between popular culture and law by underscoring this interaction’s multinational and international features. Two dozen authors from nine countries invite readers to consider the role of law-related popular culture in a broad range of nations, socio-political contexts, and educational environments. Even more importantly, selected contributors explore the global transmission and reception of law-related cultural products and, in particular, the influence of assorted works and media across national borders and cultural boundaries. The circulation and consumption of law-related popular culture are increasing as channels of mass media become more complex and as globalization runs its uncertain course. Law and Popular Culture: International Perspectives adds to the critical understanding of the worldwide interaction of popular culture and law and encourages reflection on the wider implications of this mutual influence across both time and geography.
