Puts the Rodney King and O. J. Simpson trials under themicroscope

Reviews the turbulent events of the Rodney King and O. J. Simpsontrials from a social and political framework of race relations andpolice misconduct. This thought-provoking book shows that the issueof race was at the very heart of both of these emotionally chargedcases.

Psychologist and scholar Jewelle Taylor Gibbs shows how King andSimpson have been transformed by their trials into symbols of thedifferent worlds inhabited by blacks and whites in America. Gibbs'scompelling analysis of the issues that permeated these trials willchallenge even the most cynical observer to rethink any previouslyheld assumptions about race and the criminal justice system.
