“Whatever Jeff does he does with excellence and integrity. His book is a valuable contribution to the ongoing conversation on ethics in society generally and in the legal field in particular. I urge everyone interested in this important issue to buy the book and read it,” said Imad Hamad, AHRC Acting Director.
” Judge Collins was a public servant of the utmost in integrity and care when dealing with Arab and Muslim Americans in the post 9/11 environment. He is the most qualified to write a book on ethics and the law,” said Imam Mustapha Elturk, AHRC Executive board member.
