Summary

First published a decade ago, No Equal Justice is the seminal work on race and class-based double standards in criminal justice. Hailed as a 'shocking and necessary book' by The Economist, it has become the standard reference point for anyone trying to understand the fundamental inequalities in the American Legal System. Cole explores police behaviour, jury selection and sentencing and argues that the system fails in terms of equality and, in fact, requires double standards to operate, allowing the privileged to enjoy protection from police power.
