<br> Thomas and Leo have explored the long history of the ways in which the law has dealt with confessions of guilt. The book is particularly relevant, and valuable, in its treatment of what led up to the famous Miranda case-and what happened afterwards. This is a comprehensive and deeply researched book, which examines with insight and passion a particularly dark and murky corner of the world of legal doctrine.
