Beginning today, February 12, Harvard Law School Professor Janet Halley will hold a series of workshops to reexamine notable–and often controversial–books. Entitled “Book Trouble 2004,” these discussions will explore the role specific books play in the development of people’s professional roles, historical crises, social alliances and social movements.

The first book to be discussed will feature Amherst College Professor Andrew Parker on Karl Marx’s The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte. The discussion will begin at 4:30 p.m. in Pound 332. Subsequent books to be examined will include Robert Cover’s Nomos Narrative, Søren Kierkegaard’s Fear and Trembling and Hannah Arendt’s Rahel Varnhagen: The Life of a Jewess.
