The Jury: Disorder in the Courts

The Jury: Disorder in the Courts

by Stephen J. Adler

Paperback(1st Main Street books ed)



"Just in time to put the Simpson trial in perspective," wrote Time Magazine recently of The Jury. Indeed, America's inundation with high-profile cases, not just O.J. but the Menendez brothers, the Long Island Railroad gunman Colin Ferguson, and Court TV in general—have made people intensely preoccupied with the jury system, while at the same time remarkably unknowledgeable. The Jury will change that.

The Jury is a sobering look at the disarray of the current American jury system. Written in a straight-forward style, filled with ancedotes from the trials discussed, the book ends with a strong prescription for how to change—and save—the jury system in America.

"This is the first book ever that explains how juries work in the real world, and Steve Adler does it in a way that actually makes it fun to read." — Steven Brill, founder, Court TV and The American Lawyer magazine
