Abstract

Bob Cover often returned to the moral complexity of rules, his magnificent obsession. In Justice Accused, for example, Bob brought extraordinary historical knowledge and insight to his study of judges who personally abhorred slavery but who nevertheless upheld the law and returned fugitive slaves to their masters. It is a book that teaches beautifully and rewards each rereading.
