Book: “Law and Magic”

By

Some law books just look as if they’d be more fun to read than others:

Law and Magic, by Christine A. Corcos

“…Topics include alchemy in fifteenth-century England, a discussion of how a courtroom is like a magic show, stage hypnotism and the law, Scottish witchcraft trials in the eighteenth century, the question of whether stage magicians can look to intellectual property to protect their rights, tarot card readings and the First Amendment, and an analysis of whether a magician can be qualified as an expert witness under the Federal Rules of Evidence…” (link to publisher website)

Or would you rather read the one I saw many years ago in a law library far, far away. The dedication said, “for Betsy,” and some wag had penciled in, “poor Betsy.”
