A Book In The Great American Muckraking Tradition

Law And Justice In Everyday Life features tales about ordinary citizens as they encounter the justice system.

"Reading Andy Thibault reminded me of the heroes of my youth, the great muckrakers of the early 20th century."
-- From the introduction by Howard Zinn, author of "A People's History of the United States."

"Andy Thibaultís Law And Justice In Everyday Life is an unusual, perhaps extraordinary book. But then Andy Thibault himself is an unusual, and probably extraordinary man. In this day and age, he is a bit of an anomaly, sort of a gunslinger from the Old West, ready to fire at anything that moves -- especially if he doesnít take kindly to the movement ... He is in a way a corollary of Robin Hood; he takes from the powerful and gives to the weak."
-- F. Lee Bailey, whose clients have included Dr. Sam Sheppard, Patty Hearst, Albert DeSalvo and O.J. Simpson, in the Foreword to the 2nd edition

"Those who think they know the law will be enlightened; those who care about social justice will be outraged; and those who care about a good read will be thrilled. Thibault is one part Thurgood Marshall, one part H.L. Mencken, and one part Raymond Chandler."
-- Christine Palm, Editor, Readings, Connecticut Center for the Book in Hartford, CT

Written in plain, crisp language, Law And Justice In Everyday Life has been a hit with cops, lawyers, shopkeepers, homemakers and even with those who haven't read a book in a long time. Readers have identified with the common experiences and frustrations recorded in this narrative. And yet there is also hope for those who would exercise their citizenship by holding public servants accountable. This book makes a difference, and you can, too.

The 258-page book begins with an examination of the cover-up of a hit-and-run death in New London, CT, followed by unsolved murders in Stamford and Darien in which police know the prime suspects. A prediction on the performance of Michael Skakel in the Martha Moxley murder trial highlights another chapter.

A chapter entitled "The Politics Of Justice" features columns from Law Tribune Newspapers that led the state Judicial Department to cancel its subscriptions to the Connecticut Law Tribune. These headlines include: Free The Oppressed, Exploited Judges, All Rise For Judge Bobby Knight and The Bench Protection Association.

Government misconduct in Boston, Washington, Oklahoma is examined throughout the book's 12 chapters. A chapter on Civil Rights And Freedom Of Speech recounts the heroic struggles of librarians, students, gay parents and whistleblowers as they aspire to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Honest and talented police officers and prosecutors tell their stories in chapters entitled On The Job, For The People and Cops And Perps.
