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?

Book Review: The Lynching - The Epic Courtroom Battle that Brought Down the Klan
The Lynching is a difficult book to review. In some ways it is two books in one. In one part, it tells the story of a path-breaking lawsuit that “brought down” the Ku Klux Klan. The story of the lawsuit follows a fascinating historical recounting of the Klan’s tight, symbiotic relationship with Alabama politicians and with George Wallace in particular. The first part of the book is essentially a mini-political biography of Wallace and his rise to power in Southern, and then national, politics. The Klan was a “fearless enforcer of segregation,” and segregation was the central tenet of Wallace’s being. By far, the history of the Klan’s direct and close involvement in Southern political life is the most interesting and well-researched part of the book. Also, in this highly informative section, the author recounts how the Klan would arrange in advance, with local law enforcement’s approval, to commit their violence with impunity.

Impartial Justice is chock full of analysis about what constitutes a neutral, impartial, and unbiased decisionmaker. Part one focuses on juries, part two judges, and part three noncourt settings.

Book Review: Leaning on the Arc - A Personal History of Criminal Defense
Gerry Schwartz-bach, a true artist in the criminal defense world, has crafted a powerful and very engaging reflection on his work on behalf of the accused that is part memoir, part teaching tool, and entirely inspiring for anyone coping with the conflict between justice and the justice system. The title, Leaning on the Arc, draws from the Martin Luther King observation that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Schwartzbach sketches a brief but engaging tour of the experiences that led him to a life in the law. His shared discovery of the potent prospect of making a difference, one life at a time, emerges from the story and resonates for the reader. It powerfully compels his journey forward. The book then shifts, transporting the reader into the very heart of the celebrated and lesser-known cases of his career, in a fashion that is inspiring, fascinatingly informative, and revealing of his method of strategic thinking, so essential to creating unimaginable outcomes from very desolate-appearing facts.
