Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

Edited and introduced by Larry King (Phoenix Books)


In a criminal trial, the prosecution must meet a burden of proof. The standard represented by the title phrase of this book is not defined in U.S. laws. What does it really mean? Here, more than 80 scholars, attorneys, novelists, journalists and religious figures discuss, explore, interpret and define the phrase and its meaning.

Among the contributors are Ed Haug, a 1974 graduate of Notre Dame, Richard North Patterson, Scott Turow, Dr. Carol Lieberman and Jerry Falwell.
