Have you ever studied the law or have you ever been interested in real crime cases and want to know what is really going on during a trial? If you answered yes to any or all of those questions then do I have a book for you. The Humanity of Justice written by Burke E. Strunsky is an informative and entertaining look at the law and what goes on during a trial. How evidence is presented and how there is no guarantee that jury will see things the same way you do.
Here is a brief summary of the book.
The Humanity of Justice is a procedural true-crime book told through the eyes and heart of a veteran criminal prosecutor who cares about the people he meets and their life-altering circumstances. Burke E. Strunsky, a senior deputy district attorney in southern California, takes the reader inside the courtroom for some of the most haunting criminal cases in the state as well as the nation.
This book was very interesting in that it combined the legal aspects of the law with true life crime situations. There were several cases that Strunsky had prosecuted cited. Several of these cases had been showcased on news programs as like Dateline NBC and 20/20. In fact I found myself going to my computer and looking up the television footage of these cases. I like how this is a book about the law that did more than spout legal terms that a normal person would not understand. Even if you are not a legal scholar you could still read and understand this book.
I also love the fact that 100% if the proceeds from this book are be donated to The Humanity of Justice Foundation, a non-profit organization, to help prevent child abuse and neglect.
