Gift for Your Lawyer -- The Legal Kiss
Your Favorite Lawyer Will Like and Appreciate This Book!! Give it with an appropriate message (and, perhaps a kiss)!!
This is not a scholarly treatise on everything about the "kiss". What it does, and does well, is focus on legal aspects of the kiss in current jurisprudence as well as some parts of the legal history of the kiss.
Is a kiss just a kiss? Hardly. Anything that has stirred the emotions as much as the kiss, would almost certainly be something that civil society would demand to be controlled! Indeed, throughout history from the fateful kiss of betrayal by Judas in the Garden of Gethsemane leading to the most famous trial of human history, to 1019 when a kiss was required by law for the transfer of property, to the ban in 1439 by King Henry VI to avoid passing along the Black Death, to the 1500s when the “kiss of peace” was required for all peace agreements in Spain --- law has tried to harness this force of nature, through prohibiting it and requiring it! Litigation over the famous Life Magazine kissing sailor, murder trials triggered by a kiss, kisses for votes, fidelity agreements not to “kiss and tell”, political kisses and the banning of kissing reptiles, and more.
