About the author (1985)

Mary Ann Glendon was born on October 7, 1938, in Pittsfield, Mass. and graduated from the University of Chicago with both J.D. and Master of Comparative Law degrees. She has worked as a criminal defender, a civil rights attorney, and is the Learned Hand Professor of Law at Harvard University. Glendon writes frequently on scholarly matters of the law. In Rights Talk: The Impoverishment of Political Discourse, she presents examples of the talk behind laws and rights of citizens, and the actual actions. Hot topics such as flag burning, Indian lands, homosexual acts, and social welfare are covered in-depth in this book, and the difference of opinions versus deeds concerning these topics are discussed as representing a distortion of our true culture and values.
