Pressestimmen"Written for a general audience... Excellent... If enough American judges and law professors read his book, some of the silly rules that he criticizes will be discarded." --Judge Richard A. Posner, Times Literary Supplement "A beautifully written, finely nuanced work, a marvelous comparative constitutional study of criminal procedure that seeks to understand the larger culture." --Lawrence Fleischer, New York Law Journal "In a cogent, direct argument, Pizzi inveighs against the triumph of the law of unintended consequences over the law of practicality... An important book." --Publishers Weekly "Pizzi is certainly convincing in his argument that the American trial system is in dire need of overhaul. " --Law Society Journal, July 2002
