Each chapter is devoted to a specific aspect of our criminal justice system, and in each chapter the author critically examines the ways that the search for justice is systematically undermined by conventional practices in America. These critiques provide the bases for his suggestions, in the final chapter, for specific steps that could be taken. I enjoyed the book from start to finish.
