And Justice for All

2010, Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Procedure, Political Science admin

By: William M. Kunstler

In this work, Kunstler explores ten criminal trials, including the cases of Mary Surrat, Alger Hiss, the Rosenbergs, and Sacco and Vanzetti, illuminating for the reader the overwhelming influence of societal attitudes working against the defendants in each case within a particular point in history. Inasmuch as our legal system wishes to preserve the idea of “innocent until proven guilty,” Kunstler provides a sound argument for the unfortunate effect of society’s perception on the outcome of many of the most famous criminal trials in history. And Justice for All would be a wonderful addition to any trials collection.

And Justice for All

2010, Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Procedure, Political Science admin

By: William M. Kunstler
Considered by many to be a flamboyant radical, William M. Kunstler defended many controversial clients, including Jack Ruby, Abbie Hoffman, and the “Chicago Seven.” Throughout his career, Kunstler believed that fixed preconceptions of a community could, in too many instances, contribute more to the outcome of criminal trials than the quantity or quality of the evidence could. The emphasis on due process of law as the basic guarantee of our liberties, so often voiced by courts and lawyers, and reasonably true in ordinary trials, is secondary where prejudice prevails. In this work, Kunstler provides a sound argument for the unfortunate effect of society’s perception on the outcome of many of the most famous criminal trials in history.
