The Juror Rejudges the Trial: The Juror and the General 35 Years Later is the new edition of the book that M. Patricia Roth published a few decades ago. She was a jury member in the Westmoreland vs. CBS trial, which lasted 18 weeks and was considered the trial of the century. In the new edition, the author narrates the trial and includes her reflections. She also reveals to the reader how her life changed after the trial was over and how she found time to pursue her passions after quitting her teaching job. In the end, she includes reflections on the state of affairs many years after the end of the trial.
The justice system has always fascinated me, so I loved reading The Juror Rejudges the Trial. M. Patricia Roth writes very well, and her firsthand knowledge of the trial makes this account a valuable and interesting source. She lets us know everything that is important to know, and it is easy for the reader to follow the events. I enjoyed reading Roth's reflections and the descriptions of the behavior of the various protagonists of the story. Furthermore, I appreciated that she added how this trial changed her life. This helps us know her better and puts her experience into a new perspective; it allows us to reflect on how a single event can change a person's life. I recommend The Juror Rejudges the Trial to anyone interested in the Westmoreland vs. CBS trial and who wants to read a special testimony like Roth's.
