In this lecture series, one of the country's leading defense lawyers will talk about some of the most interesting and ground breaking cases of the 20th century. Dershowitz has some great insights into all of the cases, and discusses them in a fashion which is completely accessible to the lay-person. Although he talks about the cases, he talks much more about the cultural issues surrounding each case, rather than focusing on legal minutia and technical maneuvering. At one point he talks about a series of cases that revolved around racism in some form, and sues them to show how race issues have changed in the US over time.

The main fault I have with this series is in the case selection. I find it hard to believe that of the 14 most influential cases of the 20th century, 3 of them happen to have involved Dershowitz in a professional capacity. Those three cases (OJ Simpson, Mike Tyson, and Claus Von Bulow) and all worked into Dershowitz's themes very well, and he clearly knows a lot about the cases, but their inclusion smacks of self-aggrandizement.

The 14 cases discussed are these:

Lecture 1 The Scopes Monkey Trial
Lecture 2 The Case of Leo Frank
Lecture 3 Leopold and Loeb
Lecture 4 Julius and Ethel Rosenberg
Lecture 5 O.J. Simpson
Lecture 6 Sacco and Vanzetti
Lecture 7 Claus von Bülow
Lecture 8 Bernhard Goetz
Lecture 9 Mike Tyson
Lecture 10 Roe v. Wade
Lecture 11 Lawrence v. Texas
Lecture 12 Bill Clinton
Lecture 13 Bush v. Gore
Lecture 14 Human Rights in the Face of Terrorism

Dershowitz is intellectually honest,and I like hearing his arguments even though I disagree with his world view. He is not afraid of telling the truth and being politically incorrect or of being demonized by the left. He is very afraid of not doing what is right and true, which is what we should all fear. Though he is extremely pro-abortion he says that Roe vs Wade was a terrible decision. It is not supported by the Constitution. The effect was to divide the country and force people to vote for candidates simply because of where they stand on abortion. His firsthand accounting of the Mike Tyson case is enlightening on the injustice of the system bent on convicting a man accused of rape. His firsthand description of the OJ Simpson case explains a lot.

This is an important set of lectures, guaranteed to hold your attention and teach you quite a lot about how famous trials are often handled in America. That's the good stuff. But in order to get those benefits, you are also going to have to listen to Alan Dershowitz at his maniacally liberal and egotistical worst. The course is built around a handful of famous American cases which in some way impacted life in the U.S: The Scopes Trial, Sacco and Vanzetti, Leopold and Loeb, O.J. Simpson, Mike Tyson, etc. He faithfully lays out the cases and gives understanding to the legal strategies employed. But then his dark twin takes over. Some of the cases are cases he worked on as an attorney so his objectivity may be called into question. In another (the Clinton impeachment) Dershowitz seems intent on settling some kind of personal score with Clinton's lawyer. And in almost all of the cases, the good professor uses them as a platform to put forth his (in my conservative mind) radical politically correct view of the world. This is no surprise -- any modestly informed reader knows what he will get from a Dershowitz disc -- but when the professor speaks from the lecturer's podium, there is no opportunity for rebuttal. He's got the hall all to himself and he vigorously indulges himself by putting forth every liberal canard there is with courtroom vigor. But, hey, he's a COLLEGE professor, and that's what college professors do. Well, I didn't mean to make this a political rant, nor do I intend to discourage listeners from exposing themselves to this valuable set of lectures. Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad and I must admit, it feels cathartic to yell back at my CD player when Dershowitz says something particularly naive. But, all in all, when it comes to explaining the law, they probably don't come any better than Dershowitz. Unfortunately.....

Interesting series of lectures, but heavily biased. It should be titled "Alan Dershowitz's Unsupported Opinions about Fundamental Cases." Includes instances where Dershowitz will state that he has independently researched a case and has decided that x-person was really guilty and this other person was actually innocent, and so on. Um, okay.
