After the white Bronco, after the bloody glove, after the media frenzy and the verdict that set O.J. Simpson free, Daniel Petrocelli came to pick up the pieces. Outraged by the disastrous miscarriage of justice, the family of murder victim Ronald Goldman sought justice in civil court—their last chance to go after Simpson. To represent them, they hired Petrocelli, a respected attorney who had never before tried a criminal case. In order to win the case, Petrocelli would have to prove that O.J. Simpson was a killer. The physical evidence connecting Simpson to the murders was rock solid, but in the criminal trial, evidence was not enough. To bring the families justice, Petrocelli would have to do something that the District Attorney had not been able to do: confront O.J. Simpson face-to-face. Called “the best book on the subject” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Triumph of Justice is the definitive account of the Simpson murders and their aftermath. In the long, twisted history of the trial of the century, Daniel Petrocelli has the final word.
From the Book of Ecclesiastes: 'The making of many books, there is no end." In the years following the June 12, 1994, murders, there appeared to be no end to the making of books about the Simpson case.

Gerry Spence calls his book O.J. The Last Word. Daniel Petrocelli's Triumph of Justice is subtitled: Closing the Book on the Simpson Saga. Both seem somewhat presumptuous. As long as O.J. Simpson is alive, I doubt if there will be any last words. He, his kids, and satellite figures connected to the investigation of the crime and to the two trials, will likely remain grist for the media mill. From the Book of Ecclesiastes: 'The making of many books, there is no end." In the years following the June 12, 1994, murders, there appeared to be no end to the making of books about the Simpson case. The fifty or so ground out during the last years of the 20th century hardly threatened to overtake the 2000-plus penned about John F. Kennedy. But in the light of new electronic media with global tentacles, chances are that the coverage of the Simpson murders and the trials far exceeded the coverage of the Kennedy assassination. There were, after all, at the time of the latter event, no communication satellites, no satellite TV, and no Internet, cell phones, or faxes. International media-blitzing of the crimes attributed to one of America's most heralded jocks clearly outstripped the reportage of any crime in history, including the Holocaust, which occurred before the age of television. Is there room or reason for one more book on the subject? While this three-volume work may not be the best (that distinction the author concedes to Vincent Bugliosi's Outrage: The Five Reasons Why O.J. Simpson Got Away With Murder and, secondarily, to Schiller and Willwerth's American Tragedy and to Petrocelli's Triumph of Justice), it offers the most comprehensive coverage of not only the most media-intensive criminalcase in history but arguably the most significant. No other killings, excluding those related to war or genocide, have impacted our society so broadly in matters of 20th century race relations, awareness of activism against domestic violence, law enforcement and police reform, investigative procedures and evidence gathering, DNA analysis and testing, etc. Hopefully, for these reasons, this exhaustive study may be among the most valuable resources for students, scholars, professionals and others interested in the many-faceted ramifications of an infamous crime.

For the past three decades, many history professors have allowed their biases to distort the way America’s past is taught. These intellectuals have searched for instances of racism, sexism, and bigotry in our history while downplaying the greatness of America’s patriots and the achievements of “dead white men.” As a result, more emphasis is placed on Harriet Tubman than on George Washington; more about the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II than about D-Day or Iwo Jima; more on the dangers we faced from Joseph McCarthy than those we faced from Josef Stalin. A Patriot’s History of the United States corrects those doctrinaire biases. In this groundbreaking book, America’s discovery, founding, and development are reexamined with an appreciation for the elements of public virtue, personal liberty, and private property that make this nation uniquely successful. This book offers a long-overdue acknowledgment of America’s true and proud history.

In compelling narrative, the authors probe the sensational cases of Nathan F. Leopold, Jr., and Richard A. Loeb, the Scottsboro "boys," Bruno Richard Hauptmann, Alger Hiss, and O.J. Simpson, highlighting significant lessons about criminal behavior and the administration of criminal justice. Each case study details the crime, the police investigation, and the court proceedings, profiles the major players, and examines the outcome and aftermath of the trial. The authors untangle the perplexities surrounding the cases and illuminate the many mysteries that remain unsolved today. These celebrated trials reveal issues of overzealous prosecution, sloppy police work, judicial bias, race, class, and ethnic struggles, and the role of wealth in securing a competent defense. They also show how the temper of the times and frenzied media coverage heightened the intensity of drama in the cases.
The present volume explores these alternative, informal, preventive, and transitional types of criminal justice and the legitimacy of new sanction models in the global risk society from the perspective of national and international justice ...
