30711 Independence Corrupted: How America's Judges Make Their Decisions   NEW!

Using his National Book Award-nominated book as a foundation, Wisconsin Reserve Judge Emeritus Charles Schudson takes you behind the bench to learn how judges analyze actual trials and sentencings of abortion protesters, sex predators, white supremacists, murderers, and more. You’ll go into chambers to hear judges arguing appellate decisions about corporate crime, multimillion-dollar damages, civil rights, and life and death. Throughout, he exposes the increasing personal, professional, and political pressures threatening judicial integrity.

Recommended: Charles Schudson, Independence Corrupted (University of Wisconsin Press, 2018).
