He was a conservative judge, but also an activist who broke with convention. Moshe Landau, the subject of a new biography, not only left his mark on the Israeli courts, but in effect shaped them. Three words he wrote were, nonetheless, to haunt him until his death a year ago: ‘moderate physical pressure.’
Moshe Landau: Shofet (Moshe Landau, Judge), by Michal Shaked, Aliyat Hagag and Yedioth Ahronoth Books (Hebrew) 608 pages, NIS 128.
