"Juries have been delivering independent verdicts in the interest of justice for over 800 years, serving as the final check on government's power to pass unjust, immoral, or oppressive laws that leave citizens at the mercy of sometimes jaded or corrupt courts and legislatures. This was what the Founding Fathers feared, and this is the reason why they guaranteed trial by jury three times in the Constitution -- more than any other right. ... In Jury Nullification, author Clay Conrad ... takes readers through an extensive, eye-opening history of the doctrine of jury independence, the law, and the practical and political implications of jury nullification."--Jacket.
