Building for Justice

The Historic Courthouses of the Maritimes

  Author:   James Macnutt    
  Publisher:  SSP Publications

In this beautifully illustrated volume, James Macnutt, Q.C. has succeeded in compelling us to look at courthouses in a different way. Courthouses are not only one of the most significant buildings in the cities, towns or villages in which they are located, they are also an excellent interpretation of the way justice is administered in each Maritime province.

Building for Justice is a celebration of a monumental architecture that, along with the buildings of church and state, forms one of the cornerstones of our society.

James W. Macnutt is the author of Heritage Houses of Prince Edward Island, Inside Island Heritage Homes, The Historical Atlas of Prince Edward Island, and Building for Democracy and he is the author of several journal articles on architectural history. He is the author of a chapter on the architecture of legislative buildings located in member states of the commonwealth of nations, written for the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association in a book published in 2011 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the association. At the request of the National Assembly of Quebec, in conjunction with its 125th anniversary, he prepared a comparative analysis of the Quebec National Assembly building with that of the Province of New Brunswick, specifically how the Second Empire style of architecture used in the National Assembly contrasted with that used in the Legislative Building of New Brunswick.
