"Just in time to put the Simpson trial in perspective," wrote Time Magazine recently of The Jury. Indeed, America's inundation with high-profile cases, not just O.J. but the Menendez brothers, the Long Island Railroad gunman Colin Ferguson, and Court TV in general--have made people intensely preoccupied with the jury system, while at the same time remarkably unknowledgeable. The Jury will change that.
The Jury is a sobering look at the disarray of the current American jury system. Written in a straight-forward style, filled with ancedotes from the trials discussed, the book ends with a strong prescription for how to change--and save--the jury system in America.
"This is the first book ever that explains how juries work in the real world, and Steve Adler does it in a way that actually makes it fun to read." -- Steven Brill, founder, Court TV and The American Lawyer magazine
