Reasonable Doubts

(1996)
The O.J. Simpson Case and the Criminal Justice System
A non fiction book by

 
 
Alan Dershowitz, one of the foremost legal thinkers of our time, explores a series of questions raised by the most watched criminal trial in American history. Through this brilliant, eye-opening account of the O.J. Simpson case, he exposes the realities of the criminal justice system in this country.Here, Professor Dershowitz examines the issues and social forces - media, money, gender, and race - that shape the criminal justice system in America today. Among the fascinating questions raised:

Was this really a case of circumstantial evidence?
  • Did Simpson's wealth "buy" the acquittal?
  • How could one of the longest trials in the history of America's judicial system produce a verdict after less than four hours of jury deliberation?

    Reasonable Doubts is a work of lasting importance; it will force us to rethink our assumptions, not only about the case itself but about the strengths - and weaknesses - of the criminal justice syste.This book is for the many thoughtful observers who sincerely and understandably believe that O.J. Simpson murdered Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, and that the jury's verdict of not guilty was therefore a miscarriage of justice.
