Bill of Right in Action
Winter 1992 (9:1)
The Judicial System
In the last issue we discussed our political system, and this time we turn to a historical and contemporary focus on issues of the justice system. Further issues will focus on the executive and legislative branches of government.
We gratefully acknowledge the support of the following organizations which have made Bill of Rights possible: the Hearst Foundation, the Ahmanson Foundation, Times Mirror, and the U.S. Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
World History: The Inquisition: Looking into the Human Soul
U.S. History: "We Came to Free the Slaves": John Brown on Trial
U.S. Government: Does the Criminal Justice System Discriminate Against African-Americans?
