The Making and Breaking of the American Legal System

Book - 2019
Rate this:
An examination of how over the past eighty years the legal system has increasingly confused quantity with quality and might with legitimacy. As the law bloats into chaos, it staggers only by excusing itself from the very commands it insists that we obey, leaving Americans victim to arbitrary, unconstitutional power. By examining the system as a whole, Gibney shows that the tragedies often portrays as isolated mistakes or the work of a few bad actors--police misconduct, prosecutorial overreach, and the outrages of imperial presidencies--are really the inevitable consequences of law's descent into lawlessness.
