Now in paperback and featuring a new preface by the authors, Cameras in the Courtroom looks at the effects of both allowing and barring television coverage of legal proceedings. Cohn and Dow examine landmark televised trials, including those of O. J. Simpson, the Menendez brothers, and William Kennedy Smith. Also, analyzing the impact of Court TV and the history of cameras in American courtrooms, the text strikes a balanced discussion among diverse opinions. In the new preface, the authors consider the effect of excluding television coverage from the upcoming trial of Zacarias Moussaoui on charges stemming from the September 11, 2001, terror attacks. The book also includes an array of interviews with judges, attorneys, jurors, witnesses, and legal scholars, shedding light on a subject that has become an important topic in both media and law.
