Tell the court you've read this book! It is not an easy read but is a history of the changing ideas on the purpose, duties and responsibilities of the jury and it's relationship to the law, the court and it's other members (judge, defendant and attorneys) over the last several hundred years of "western" court systems.

Good read to learn a jury can nullify a law that is no longer useful or totally out of date.
