How well does our jury system work, and does trial by jury guarantee justice to those brought before it? A Jury of Whose Peers examines the workings of the jury system in Australia, exploring it from a range of perspectives, including the experiences of jurors, lawyers, barristers, an anthropologist and an indigenous writer. This unique collection of essays offers historical, cultural and political insight into the role of juries, and in particular into the way the system impacts on different members of Australian society. Exploring complex issues of silence, compromise, language, prejudice, social justice and ambiguity, each author underscores the difficulties of making a judgement in circumstances where issues of 'reasonable doubt' are inevitably involved.
