American Legal Injustice : Behind the Scenes with an Expert Witness Paperback / softback
Forensic psychiatrist Emanuel Tanay has testified in thousands of court cases as an expert witness.
Tanay provides a 'behind-the-scenes' view of our criminal justice system and clear examples of the rampant injustice that he has witnessed.
He argues that the potential for injustice is built into our legal system in the form of incompetent lawyers, the imbalance of resources between the pricey defense lawyers hired by large corporations in civil trials and the inexperienced lawyers often hired by plaintiffs, and the political concerns of elected judges and prosecutors.
