BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT: Letters and Essays from the Famous and Infamous on the True Legal Definition of Guilt in America's Courtrooms by Larry King

Beyond a reasonable doubt. The phrase represents the burden of proof placed upon the prosecution in every criminal trial in the country, and yet the standard represented by this phrase is nowhere mentioned in the constitution and nowhere in our laws is it defined. What then does it really mean? How can it be interpreted? In Beyond a Reasonable Doubt over 80 of the most influential scholars, attorneys, novelists, journalists, and religious figures discuss, explore, interpret, and define the phrase and its meaning. Beyond a Reasonable Doubt is essential reading for anyone with an interest in how our justice system works today and how it will work in the future.
