From the Publisher
"Miscarriage of Justice: The Jonathan Pollard Story by Mark Shaw is a gripping account of an infamous prosecution by a vindictive government....

That President Clinton pardoned Mark Rich...and left Pollard in jail is an absolute disgrace."-Morton A. Kaplan, Professor of Political Science, Emeritus, the University of Chicago, Publisher, The World & I magazine
