Product Description:

Good question! Richard Maybury, author of Whatever Happened to Penny Candy, expresses in a lucid manner the workings of our legal system. Written as a series of letters to a nephew from Uncle Eric, topics include a discussion of the origins of government, principles on which our government is based, history of law, the difference between scientific law (how our government was intended) and political law (what we've ended up with), components of common law, reasons for government, and unsolved legal problems. This widely-endorsed book is also sprinkled with quotations from famous political teachers. An excellent introduction to law and justice! Revised edition.

We have "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy" and my 9th grade son is interested in Law so I thought he might enjoy this book. I think I will, too!

I have Whatever Happened to Penny Candy and I thought the kids might enjoy this one too since one asked a question about justice the other day.

Richard Maybury's "Uncle Eric" books challenge the statist education that many of us received in public schools. When we look at the world around us through a different lens, our perspective is often changed.
