Description
Acting as jurors, ordinary citizens have the power to free the accused, levy enormous fines on negligent corporations, and even dispense the death penalty. These are powers most countries keep in the hands of the ruling elite. As this anthology reveals, Americans have a longstanding attachment to this right, even as some question the way it works in practice.
