Come down to Books on Beechwood on Saturday, March 26 to meet author Joseph Maingot. He will be here signing his book Politicians Above the Law from 1:00p.m. to 3:00p.m.
From the jacket:
“More than 70% of the world’s nations spell out clearly in their constitutions that members of their parliaments or national assemblies are protected from the criminal process. This is called parliamentary inviolability. Only the Commonwealth parliaments and the Congress of the United States refuse to grant such special immunity to its members. This discourages good governance and encourages clashes among the three branches of government as the Craxi scandal in Italy (1993), the Juppe affair in France (2004), and the ongoing Berlusconi matter in Italy amply demonstrate.”
