Product description

From the Inside Flap

"One would like to think that the U.S. Supreme Court, the highest Court in the land, is the one island of sanity still remaining. But if what you folks are about to read is any indication, we've all got a lot to worry about. The question that presents itself is whether the near pathological dizziness and irrationality in our society has so invaded this nation's marrow that, like a wild-infectious virus, even the Supreme Court is not immune."
--from NO ISLAND OF SANITY
Now, in the powerful premiere of the Library of Contemporary Thought, Vincent Bugliosi takes a timely swipe at the Supreme Court's decision in Paula Jones v. Bill Clinton. Famed as the prosecutor of Charles Manson and author of the classic bestseller HELTER SKELTER, Bugliosi argues that the high court has rarely been proved so wrong, so fast.
NO ISLAND OF SANITY is only the beginning of an ongoing dialogue with some of the most original writers working today. Each month, the Library of Contemporary Thought will bring you a different voice on a hot-button topic in American life, politics, and culture. From Mickey Mouse to Tiger Woods, from how we age to how we read, no subject is too controversial or too unlikely for these powerful and provocative books.

About the Author

Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964 from the UCLA Law School. In his career as a prosecutor for the Los Angeles Country District Attorney's office, he won 105 out of 106 felony jury trials. His most famous trial was the Charles Manson case, which became the basis of his classic bestselling book, Helter Skelter. Both Helter Skelter and his subsequent Till Death Do Us Part won Edgar Allan Poe Awards for best true-crime book of the year. His next true-crime book, And the Sea Will Tell, was #1 on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list, as was his most recent book, Outrage: The Five Reasons Why O. J. Simpson Got Away With Murder.
