Lawrence Lessig - "a brilliant agile mind - absolutely extraordinarily prolific writer and speaker and above all an advocate for all the right things"
"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of a thinking power called an idea ... no one possesses the less of it because every other possesses the whole of it ... as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening mine" -- Thomas Jefferson

First impressions can so often be wrong. And impressions are so often influenced by prevailing social perceptions. What happens when a series of identities in a murder case cannot be assured? How can others determine your identity when you can't even identify your own? The Tragedy of Pudd'nhead Wilson is a detective story that explores these issues in a time before the American Civil War in a Missouri town along the Mississippi River. Complex. Compelling. Classic.
The Underground Railroad says of itself: "An authentic record of the wonderful hardships, hairbreadth escapes, and death struggles which mark the track from slavery to freedom in the United States." The Underground Railroad was a network of secret routes helping African Americans escape to 'free states' or Canada. Between 1810 and 1850 the Railroad may have moved as many 100,000 people to freedom.
