And Justice For All

2008, Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Procedure, Political Science admin

By: William M. Kunstler

In this reprint, Kunstler explores ten criminal trials, including the cases of Mary Surratt, Alger Hiss, the Rosenbergs, and Sacco and Vanzetti. William M. Kunstler defended many controversial clients and throughout his career he believed that the “fixed preconceptions of the community” can contribute more to the outcome of criminal trials than the quantity or quality of the evidence. Kunstler shows readers evidence of the overwhelming influence of societal attitudes working against the defendants in each case.
