Additional information on "Whatever Happened to Justice?, Revised Edition" by Richard J. Maybury
Whatever Happened to Justice? by Richard J. Maybury explores America's legal heritage, and shows what's gone wrong with our legal system and economy and how to fix it.
Mr. Maybury discusses the difference between higher law and man-made law, and the connection between rational law and economic prosperity.
Whatever Happened to Justice? introduces the Two Laws that Mr. Maybury writes are necessary for a civilization to develop and advance:
Using the epistolary style of writing (using letters to tell a story), Mr. Maybury plays the part of an economist (Uncle Eric) writing a series of letters to his niece or nephew (Chris). Using stories and examples, Mr. Maybury gives interesting and clear explanations of topics that are generally thought to be too difficult for anyone but experts.
Mr. Maybury warns, "beware of anyone who tells you a topic is above you or better left to experts. Many people are twice as smart as they think they are, but they've been intimidated into believing some topics are above them. You can understand almost anything if it is explained well."

"Maybury challenges the reader to explore the inextricable connections between law and economics, and between economic and political liberty. I can think of no more important subject, and I highly recommend this lucid and thoughtful volume." — William E. Simon, former U.S. Treasury Secretary
"There is a naked clarity to Maybury's thought that washes over the reader like cleansing rain. His examination of the dynamics of common law is brilliant. As a teacher for all ages, Mr. Maybury is a virtuoso. Bravo!" — John Taylor Gatto, former New York State Teacher of the Year
"Richard Maybury's Whatever Happened to Justice? should be required reading for all who hold or aspire to hold public office, as well as for all members of the judicial system. It is a fitting companion volume to his earlier Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" — William P. Snavely, Professor Emeritus of Economics, George Mason University
"If our economic and political downfall is to be avoided, we must expose an entire generation of Americans to the ideas found in this wonderful book." — Ron Paul, author and former member of the U.S. Congress
"Maybury is right. Our insane legal system is destroying our ability to tell right from wrong. It's ruining our families, our businesses, careers, and investments. We must return to rational law, and soon. Maybury shows the way, and offers specific how-to instructions that will be a great help in every part of our lives from boardroom to schoolroom to nursery." — Gerald Schomp, former editor, World Market Perspective
