Former federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York and New York Times best-selling author Preet Bharara discussed his book, Doing Justice: A Prosecutor’s Thoughts on Crime, Punishment, and the Rule of Law. “In a fascinating combination of memoir and ethical-legal manifesto, Bharara reminds readers that, while the law is an incredible tool, it is people who create or corrupt justice.” Publisher’s Weekly, Starred Review


Doing Justice is an important overview of the way our justice system works, and why the rule of law is essential to our society. Using case histories, personal experiences and his own inviting writing and teaching style, Preet Bharara shows the thought process we need to best achieve truth and justice in our daily lives and within our society.
