Editorial Reviews

The World & I - Morton A. Kaplan
"Miscarriage of Justice: The Jonathan Pollard Story by Mark Shaw is a
gripping account of an infamous prosecution by a vindictive
government.... The life sentence not only reneged on promises that had
been made for confession but were entirely out of proportion to the
offense. That President Clinton pardoned Mark Rich...and left Pollard in
jail is an absolute disgrace.
The Jewish Press - Michael Skakun
The most comprehensive study of the Pollard case to date. …a considered and balanced account that doesn't pull any punches. Shaw, with no exculpatory ambitions, brings to bear a legally trained and nuanced mind to the complexities and duplicities that continue to mark this lingering case. He painstakingly presents hitherto unexplored background material about Pollard's childhood and zealous Zionism, as well as behind the scenes details about his life sentence. He lays bare the self servi
Notre Dame Law School - Charles E. Rice
Excellent job. [Shaw] told the truth. This readable book exposes the sentencing of Jonathan Pollard as a procedural atrocity, inflicted by a deceptive prosecution and a biased, compliant judge. Pollard's continued confinement is totalitarian, a case of permanent imprisonment for reasons of state security. Let’s pray that somebody listens.
Washington College of Law - Nicholas Kittrie
Jonathan Pollard, an American citizen and trusted governmental employee, violated the espionage law by sharing classified military information with a friendly foreign nation—Israel. To some, he will always remain a hero, to others a traitor. Shaw’s book should help the reader search within his or her own conscience to cast his vote…
