Nigh exhaustive treatment (perhaps even too exhaustive, it could be argued). The last chapter offering advice on lawyer's courtroom techniques to obtain a nullification verdict seemed very out of place. The historical and theoretical accounts are well researched and argued, although I would have preferred a smidge more objectivity. The author is clearly a well-informed, passionate advocate for jury powers, which can lead some of the language describing opposite views to be condescending. But in the main, a must read for anyone studying this topic. ( )
