Summary: Trial by jury is the mainstay of the accusatorial system of criminal justice. Here one of our most distinguished constitutional scholars, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Leonard Levy, brings his formidable skills to bear in tracing the development of what many great legal minds have called the "Palladium of Justice." Beginning with the roots of jury trial in the medieval inquest, he briskly narrates the rise of the jury's power through English history and to the
