The Legal Kiss: The Rule of Law Meets the Kiss
In this book, Professor Sutton traces the legal history of the act of kissing in civil society. The kiss, Sutton explains, has been employed to complete legal transactions, like the transfer of property. The kiss has also been involved in contracts, peace agreements, and plea bargains. Finally, the kiss has been prohibited as obscene in at least one major film. This book provides an entertaining and illustrated historical and cultural tour of the changes in the legal implications of the kiss throughout civil society.
