Summary
This comprehensive volume on the wrongful conviction of African American men in the American judicial system provides a detailed collection of statistical data and analysis on specific aspects of these miscarriages of justice that are increasingly being brought to light by advanced DNA testing and other modern review processes. The volume covers the data surrounding wrongful conviction generally, profiles prominent cases, and breaks down statistical information by crime, covering murder and attempted murder, sex crimes, drug offenses, and robbery and other crimes. An appendix provides an encyclopedic listing of wrongful conviction cases. Free is a professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and Ruesink teaches psychology at Waukesha County Technical College, WI
