Book Review: John Paul Stevens - Defender of Rights in Criminal Justice
John Paul Stevens had the third-longest tenure on the Supreme Court. He wrote more concurrences (389) and dissents (720) than any other justice in the Court’s history.

Christopher E. Smith, a professor of criminal justice at Michigan State University, wrote this book in an effort to correct that imbalance and give Stevens the attention he deserves.

Book Review: Unfair - The New Science of Criminal Justice
We rightly see the criminal justice system — based on logic and the rule of law — as a great achievement. But is it a scientific achievement? That tricky question lies at the heart of Adam Benforado’s Unfair: The New Science of Criminal Justice. How far have we really come, he asks, from the days when we could dunk a person in the water to tell whether he was lying?
