About this product
- DescriptionWith all the errors and perversities of this case, the public was left wondering was Dominique Strauss-Kahn guilty or incent? John Solomon gets past the headlines to tell the real story of how vanity, ambition and media exposure played a more important role than facts, evidence and law in the unravelling the case. Solomon's dramatic account depicts a media circus, with the egos of prosecutors supplanting core values of justice and biased headlines creating far-reaching consequences - ultimately instigating such powerful initial judgements in the court of public opinion that a court of law never got the opportunity to hear the case at all. A searing indictment of the American jurisprudence system at the dawn of the twenty-first century, DSK: Anatomy of a Scandal lays out all the facts good and bad, pro and con, so that finally the public can judge what happened in the one of the most fascinating criminal cases of the last decade.
- Author BiographyJohn Solomon is one of America's premier investigative journalists, whose award-winning stories over the last quarter-century have exposed scandals ranging from the use of foster children in AIDS drug experiments to what the Bush administration knew about terror threats in the days before September 11, 2001. His exposes have appeared in Newsweek, The Washington Post, The New York Times, on 60 Minutes, and in the Associated Press and countless other publications and news shows across the globe. A former executive editor of The Washington Times and director of news at Newsweek, Solomon currently runs the Washington Guardian investigative newspaper in the nation's capital and lives in Virginia.
