400 g; XII, 214 pages, includes bibliography, index, library pocket on rear paste down, "Police College" rubberstamp to rear end page, front end page, half title page. Dewey decimal number on rear end page and written in white on the spine. Minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine section, and to the top corners of the boards. Original bookseller's sticker on front paste down. Top edge of text block tinted red. Quite a presentable copy, the study which began with the purpose of analyse vigilante process as it had operated in the course of an American century. The introduction has that framework, and the documentary section, though assembled chronologically and with its Alnwick dates intact, is a cross-section of the evidence analysed. The method of the book thus is simple. Its findings are equally transparent. They are that, whatever temptation to escape the technicalities of legal justice by substituting direct action, the wiser course is to handle all such cases through the regular courts. This book, then, is a brief for due process. -- page VIII from the preface Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.
