Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The right to trial by jury remains an enigmatic mystery to many Americans, both children and adults. This helpful title is a solid effort at providing useful information about jury trials in the American justice system. Jury trials originated in Ancient Greece, more than 2,000 years ago. Greek juries, called dikasteries, which excluded women, often meted out justice based on less than objective criteria, such as finding against wealthy defendants merely because of their riches. William the Conqueror brought an early version of grand juries with him to England in the 11th century. These were 16 person tribunals that reported people accused of crimes to the royal authorities. The book traces the jury system through history to modern times and discusses several famous contemporary trials. There are also comprehensive explanations of the jury selection process, known as voir dire ("to speak the truth"), and jury deliberations. Although the author's prose lags in several parts of the book, this remains a solid title that thoroughly explores an intriguing aspect of the justice system. Schools and libraries should take note of such a well-researched, comprehensive work. 1999, Chelsea House. Ages 10 up. Reviewer: Bruce Adelson
