image: Class Notes headlineChristopher Beem, AM'92, PhD'94, The Necessity of Politics: Reclaiming American Public Life (University of Chicago Press). Responding to the public attention surrounding the concept of civil society, Beem argues that American public life cannot be renewed through civil society alone. Instead, he asserts that society also needs politics and government to articulate shared values and ideals.

Peter F. Langrock, AB'58, JD'60, Beyond the Courthouse (Paul S. Eriksson). In this sequel to Addison County Justice, Langrock's stories draw on cases from his Vermont law career, with crimes involving everyone from drug dealers and murderers to horse traders and apple pickers.
