“A scathing indictment of how law is taught, practiced, and administered in this country . . . One of the best books ever written on the law.”—The Denver Post
Renowned trial lawyer Gerry Spence takes an in-depth look at the American justice system and reveals a terrible truth: If you don’t have power or money, then you likely won’t receive justice either. The wealthy buy their way out of trouble, while the poor are punished. In an effort to combat this corruption, the author devises a number of reforms, tackling issues in every area of the system from law school to the courtroom.
“Passionately eloquent and innovative, trial attorney Spence here argues the evils of the justice system itself and its abuse by monied interests such as corporations, ‘the most cruel, calculating, and accomplished criminals of all time.’”—Publishers Weekly
