The Illustrated Tales of Yazh

Mike Yachnik and 12 international illustrators

The fifteenth century was not known for good plumbing or iPods. What they got right, however, was the illuminated manuscript. Often many worked under the guidance of one to create a unified whole. But other times, toiling monks were given freer reign and they introduced individual variation that made the manuscript robust and surprising from section to section.

Hora dos Cadaveres Adiados, A: Corrupcao, Expectativa e Processo Penal

Rui Cunha Martins

O importante é o processo. A batalha pelo devido processo legal é mais importante do que o combate à corrupção; e o destino das "sociedades do contraditório" depende desta opção. É este o argumento subjacente ao presente trabalho. Um argumento impopular, importa reconhecer. Capaz de defraudar expectativas. Ora, esse é exatamente o ponto. Na procissão dos cadáveres adiados em que se tornou hoje... read more
