A concise summary of the history of the American jury up to the beginning of the 19th century. The viewpoint is a bit too parochial for my taste (e.g., systems that fail to adopt our own division between civil and criminal law are "primitive"), but all told it is admirably concise and engaging. ( )

3474. The Palladium of Justice: Origins of Trial by Jury, by Leonard W. Levy (read Aug 19 2001) I have long wanted to read Levy's 1969 Pulitzer-prize-winning book on the Fifth Amendment, and while looking for it at the library--it isn't there--I ran across this 1999 book by him on the origins of trial by jury. The book has no footnotes, so if the charges it makes were sought to be checked the book gives no way to check them. I read this book in less
than two hours with great interest, but that it told me much new is doubtful. ( )
