The Collapse of American Criminal Justice Paperback / softback
Rule of law has vanished in America's criminal justice system.
Prosecutors decide whom to punish; most accused never face a jury; policing is inconsistent; plea bargaining is rampant; and draconian sentencing fills prisons with mostly minority defendants.
A leading criminal law scholar looks to history for the roots of these problems - and solutions.
