Eric M. Freedman “Making Habeas Work”
NYU Press has released a new book by Hofstra University professor Eric M. Freedman, which examines the writ of habeas corpus through a lens of current issues.
The book, which is primarily based on sources from the colonial and early national periods, explores landmark cases from history, but from new angles, and with the undeniable perspective of lessons learned and time passed. The book also offers new insight into current problems in cases such as Brexit, domestic violence, immigration, and the Guantanamo Bay detentions.
Professor Freedman expands the definition of habeas corpus from formal to functional in an effort to strengthen the rule of law and ensure its future.
