Synopsis: Robert Rand gives an inside view of the Soviet justice system from the perspective of the practising lawyer. The focus is Moscow, where the author, a journalist, lawyer and Soviet affairs analyst, sat side by side with members of the local bar organization during legal office consultations and in the courtroom. His candid descriptions of those sessions and of the homicide trial of a young Soviet convey the distinctive character of the Soviet legal system and offer insight into the reforms that have begun to alter it.

From Library Journal: A recent Moscow murder trial is the backdrop for this engrossing look at the Soviet legal system, which appears to be making meaningful if halting progress toward greater protection of individual rights and respect for the role of defense attorneys. Rand, a Washington lawyer and Soviet expert, integrates his account of a typical homicide case with observations on Soviet court procedures, defendant rights, and judicial norms. His format and style provide a smooth narrative that should please both specialists and fans of Perry Mason. The substantial appendix includes translations of new statutes governing Soviet lawyers and criminal law procedure. For informed laypersons and specialists.
