Chaque pièce de la grande demeure semblait raconter une histoire. Les murs de la maison étaient imprégnés de la présence des différents propriétaires qui s’étaient succédé depuis la fin du XIXe siècle. Laura arrêta son regard sur un immense portrait du premier propriétaire des lieux situé au-dessus de l’impressionnante cheminée en marbre à l’extrémité de la pièce au fond du grand salon.
Ce tableau de l’ancien maître de la maison fascina Laura, de part sa taille mais aussi par le regard puissant et inquiétant de cet homme mort depuis plus d’un siècle. Le visage froid et dur, il était assis sur une chaise, vêtu de vêtements noirs de jais. Le fond de la scène était composé de drapés sombres, la peinture ne respirait pas la gaieté.
La jeune femme ressentit un frisson courir le long de sa colonne vertébrale.
Les yeux du vieil homme semblaient la fixer et Laura sentit un grand malaise naître en elle, une inquiétude..." —————————————————————————————————————— AVIS RECENTS : "Une belle petite histoire de fantôme avec une fin positive, j'ai beaucoup aimé..."

The demise of the Confederacy left a legacy of legal arrangements that raised fundamental and vexing questions regarding the legal rights and status of former slaves and the status of former Confederate states. As Harold Hyman shows, few individuals had greater impact on resolving these difficult questions than Salmon P. Chase, chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1865 to 1873.
Hyman argues that in two cases -- In Re Turner (1867) and Texas v. White (1869) -- Chase combined his abolitionist philosophy with an activist jurisprudence to help dismantle once and for all the deposed machineries of slavery and the Confederacy. In Re Turner was a private law case decided at the federal circuit level.
It involved a black woman's claim that she, a recent slave, was being held in involuntary, servitude. Elizabeth Turner's mother had apprenticed her to their former master, who had not abided by his contractual obligations to provide Elizabeth with training and compensation, substantively keeping her in slavery. Chase's decision, which relied upon due process and equal protection implications in the thirteenth amendment and the 1866 Civil Rights Act, confirmed the rights of emancipated slaves to bargain and contract with employers on a parity with white workers. Texas v. White was a public law case decided in the Supreme Court. It revolved around the issue of whether the holders of U.S. bonds seized and sold by the Confederate state of Texas could demand payment after the war from that state's newly reconstructed government. In effect, Chase and his associate justices were asked to determine the legality of actions committed by all former Confederate states and, thus, to define whatconstituted a state. Chase's opinion reaffirmed the permanence of the Union and its constituent states and the duty of the states to respect the legal rights and obligations of all citizens. Hyman's exemplary study provides a much-needed reevaluation of both cases in the context of Chase's life and shows how they secured for him a rostrum for both moral and legal reform from which he asserted his strong views on the fundamental rights of individuals and states in an era of sporadically expanding federal power. "This is constitutional history as it should be written, but seldom is. Combining an excellent sketch of Chase's life with the social, intellectual, and moral climate of the times, Hyman provides a brilliant analysis of two landmark decisions. He also presents a stimulating, original, and provocative treatment of the Chase Court that sheds new light on our understanding of the thirteenth and fourteenth amendments".

Taher Dajani remembers playing soccer with his neighborhood friends in his idyllic city of Jaffa, Palestine. But on April 24, 1948, when Taher was fourteen, his carefree lifestyle came to an abrupt end. His family, with little money and few possessions, escaped the city by sea in a crowded fishing trawler as Zionist militia encircled Jaffa. Taher's father believed the family was in danger, so overnight they became refugees. The family took refuge in Syria and later in Libya, which enabled them to rebuild their lives. They experienced grief at leaving a place they loved and felt a great sense of loss and displacement, but with perseverance the Dajanis began anew.
"From Palestine to America" describes the family's experiences and their determination. Taher Dajani writes this memoir about his new life after leaving his beloved Jaffa-from his days as a college student in Chicago to his work with the central bank in Libya-and his position with the International Monetary Fund in Washington DC. Even though it has been sixty years since the Dajani family were forced to flee Palestine, they remember their heritage and roots, and Jaffa, Palestine, will forever be in their hearts.
