Now out in paperback (with a new chapter on the civil trial), and still at the head of the very crowded class of O. J. books, this isn't just a book for O. J. junkies; it's a book for anyone who wants to understand how the criminal justice system breaks down. Toobin, a former prosecutor, chronicles the great and small things that led to what he views as a miscarriage of justice, such as the prosecution's courting of the media, which took the grand jury out of the process and forced a preliminary hearing in which the defense got an unnecessarily good peek at the case; Marcia Clark's decision to ignore a high-powered (and pro bono) jury consultant's advice and to go instead with her "gut"; and Chris Darden's impetuous and unilateral decision to have Simpson try on the gloves. Of course, there was also a jury that utterly failed to deliberate--Toobin reports that just after returning the verdict, one black juror explained her decision this way: "We've got to protect our own." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Library Journal
Toobin was an assistant U.S. attorney before joining the staff of The New Yorker, which published "An Incendiary Defense," his groundbreaking article on the O.J. Simpson case in its July 25, 1994 issue. This will be a big book, but as the contents are deemed "highly confidential," we can't say much more.
