Acerca de


"The Jury in America is an indispensable contribution to understanding a vital institution, one that once embodied real responsibilities in the hands of the governed as an antidote to a stifling centralization of democracy. Dennis Hale's compelling work bears out Tocqueville's fear that a more administrative, less political regime would curtail the people's ability to make defensible judgments on matters that are inherently uncertain." --Norma Thompson, author of Unreasonable Doubt: Circumstantial Evidence and the Art of Judgment"Dennis Hale brings the broad vision of a gifted political theorist to assess the significance of the jury in American life, both its past centrality and its more recent marginalization. This important book provides an acute, detailed, and balanced judgment on all the central issues."--Robert P. Burns, author of A Theory of the Trial and The Death of the American Trial "Dennis Hale calls to our attention the American jury, an institution that has endured for centuries. In spite of its robust democratic credentials, the American jury is too often overlooked by democratic theorists, dismissed by legal scholars, and discredited by political leaders. Hale's account explains how trial by jury could wither in the US, even while new jury systems bloom in countries as disparate as South Korea and Argentina. The American jury could rise again, however, if we read The Jury in America to better understand our nation's legal and cultural history, which shaped how jurors are chosen, how evidence gets presented and weighed, and how juries deliberate and reach verdicts. If Hale and others who have recently celebrated the American jury fail in this respect, a nation will have discarded an institution that our founders placed not only in the original US Constitution but also in three of its first ten amendments."--John Gastil, Director, McCourtney Institute for Democracy, Penn State University "This book is a superb contribution to the study of the jury system and breaks new ground in our understanding of the success and failure of the revered institution of jury trial in America. . . . All those who are interested in the jury system should read this extraordinary work, as well as anyone who wishes to engage in serious debates on the jury system's democratic functions, its impact on the justice system, and its sociopolitical influences in society."--H-Net Reviews"The Jury in America is an excellent historical examination of American juries. The book does an excellent job of examining how the political role of juries has changed."--Law and Politics Book Review "Hale has written an extensive, thorough volume on the an institution important enough to the founders that it is mentioned numerous times in the original US Constitution and Bill of Rights. Hale examines the origins of juries in English common law and their evolution during the Colonial period up and through the modern and postmodern periods. The combination of history, political science, and law here is masterful and the book is highly recommended."--Choice
