Summary
Many constitutional protections that Americans take for granted today--the right to exclude illegally obtained evidence, the right to government-financed counsel, and the right to remain silent, among others--were not part of the original Bill of Rights, but were the result of criminal trials and judicial interpretations. The untold stories behind these cases reveal circumstances far more interesting than any legal dossier can evoke. Author J. Michael Martinez provides an introduction to the drama and intrigue behind 14 leading court cases in American law.--From publisher description
