Random House Webster’s “Dictionary of the Law by James E. Clapp (Random House; 528 pages; $17.95) Clear space on your bookshelf next to Black’s for attorney James E. Clapp’s moderately priced paperback “Dictionary of the Law.” According to Clapp’s introductory words, this dictionary “seeks to present the vocabulary of law in a way that provides not just each term’s meaning in isolation but also an understanding of its place in the larger legal picture.” Supplementing the text are five useful appendixes, including an organizational chart of U.S. government agencies and a list of legal-oriented Web sites. “The Women’s Guide to Legal Issues” by Nancy L. Jones with Phil Philcox (Renaissance Books; 415 pages; $19.95) In her introduction to “The Women’s Guide to Legal Issues,” author and Florida practitioner Nancy L. Jones explains to her female readers that her book “is designed to set forth in one volume a description of how the law can affect you and what your options are when addressing both simple and complex legal matters.” This guide, which the general public will probably find more valuable than the seasoned practitioner, offers women advice on such subjects as whether it is wise to sign a prenuptial agreement, how to document spousal abuse, and what avenues of redress are open to crime victims. A useful guide of resources is sure to prove helpful to the lawyer and layperson alike. “Beyond Winning” by Robert H. Mnookin, Scott R. Peppet and Andrew S. Tulumello (Belknap/Harvard; 354 pages; $28) Subtitled “Negotiating to Create Value in Deals and Disputes,” this book claims to offer a new way to view conflicts to minimize cost and help clients and their lawyers turn disputes into deals. Says author and law professor Robert H. Mnookin, director of the Harvard Negotiation Research Project, “We take the reader through the dynamics of negotiation, and highlight a process that always keeps workable solutions in sight.”
