Doing Justice: A Prosecutor's Thoughts on Crime, Punishment and the Rule of Law [9781408899021]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Multi-million-dollar fraud. Terrorism. Mafia criminality. Russian espionage.

For eight years Preet Bharara, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, successfully prosecuted some of the most high-profile crimes in America. Along the way he gained notoriety as the `Sheriff of Wall Street', was banned from Russia by Vladimir Putin and earned the distinction of being one of the first federal employees fired by Trump.

In Doing Justice Bharara takes us into the gritty, tactically complex, often sensational world of America's criminal justice system. We meet the wrongly accused and those who have escaped scrutiny for too long, the fraudsters and mobsters, investigators and interrogators, snitches and witnesses.

We learn what justice is and the basics of building a case, and how judgement must be delivered not only with toughness, but with calmness, care and compassion.

This is not just a book about the law. This is a book about integrity, leadership, decision-making and moral reasoning - and one that teaches us how to think and act justly in our own lives.

`Doing Justice is simply, utterly brilliant. Preet Bharara expertly weaves real-life stories of law and disorder into a compelling examination of our collective understanding of justice. This is no greatest hits parade of a prosecutor boasting about the bad guys he's locked up; it is a clarion call for the rule of law, bursting with humility and humanity. A desire for fairness - to suspects and defendants as well as the victims - is the touchstone for every chapter; a vital and urgent contribution in an age when established principles of justice and the rule of law are under attack across the world. I read this book as a junior lawyer and thought to myself, at every page, this is the kind of prosecutor I want to be when I grow up'  THE SECRET BARRISTER

AUTHOR: Preet Bharara served as US Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2009 to 2017, overseeing the investigation and litigation of all criminal and civil cases.
