This startling book reveals that the greatest lawbreaker in the United States is not an ordinary citizen -- it is the government itself. Jethro K. Lieberman combines the toughness of F. Lee Bailey and the intelligence of Cardozo to expose public officials who talk about 'law and order' but twist, subvert, ignore, misunderstand and thwart the law-- then get away with it. Lieberman discloses that city authorities in Texas forced children into slavery, that prosecutors misrepresent evidence, that senior executives commit perjury before Congress, that Congressmen lie, that the Census Bureau cheats, and that the arrogance of some and the ignorance of others permit officials to break the law and escape punishment. documented, nonpartisan, and clearheaded, HOW THE GOVERNMENT BREAKS THE LAW not only uncovers enough evidence to convict the guilty but also points the way toward sensible remedies. It is a shocking, yet constructive book.
