Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent (September 1st, Encounter Books), by civil liberties attorney/writer Harvey A. Silverglate, explores how the Department of Justice uses vague federal statutes to prosecute conduct that the perpetrators had no way of knowing was criminal. Through case studies and real-life stories, the book illustrates how this phenomenon affects ordinary, and often extraordinary, members of civil society - from artists to accountants, politicians to professors, and pharmaceutical companies to military technology manufacturers. For more information on the book, see the Encounter Books Spring Catalogue.
