Das Werk befasst sich mit folgender Frage: Wie reagieren staatliche Institutionen, wenn Hoheitsträger exzessive physische Gewalt einsetzen? Die Arbeit konzentriert sich vor allem auf Fälle von Polizeigewalt. Sie erörtert insbesondere die Reaktion der Staatsanwaltschaft, der Strafgerichte und des Gesetzgebers. Die Studie beginnt mit einer Auswertung der Statistiken zu hoheitlicher Gewalt, geht dann auf konkrete Fälle über und endet mit Verbesserungsvorschlägen zur besseren Kontrolle der Polizei. Um das Thema in Deutschland in ein angemessenes Verhältnis zu rücken, enthält die Arbeit rechtsvergleichende Bezüge zu den USA.

The study of legal history has a broad application that extends well beyond the interests of legal historians. An attorney arguing a case today may need to cite cases that are decades or even centuries old, and historians studying political or cultural history often encounter legal issues that affect their main subjects. Both groups need to understand the laws and legal practices of past eras. This essential reference is intended for the many nonspecialists who need to enter this arcane and often tricky area of research.

Aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Puertoricanerin, die Kindheit prekär, der Vater Alkoholiker, die Mutter überfordert – Sonia Sotomayor war es nicht gerade in die Wiege gelegt, eines Tages Richterin am höchsten Gericht der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu werden. Mit einem großen Herzen und viel Humor erzählt diese Ausnahmefrau von ihrem Weg, aber nicht um sich dabei auf die Schulter zu klopfen, sondern um anderen Menschen mit ihrer eigenen Geschichte Mut zu machen. Ein hinreißendes, ansteckendes Buch über das Trotzdem und über die – wirklich wichtigen – Dinge des Lebens. „’Nach der Lektüre werden mich die Leser nach menschlichen Kriterien beurteilen’, schreibt Sonia Sotomayor. Wir, die wir in diesem Fall die Jury sind, finden sie einfach unwiderstehlich.“ Washingtonian „Überwältigende und stark geschriebene Memoiren zum Thema Identität und Persönlichkeitsfindung ... Offenherzig, scharf beobachtet und vor allem tief empfunden.“ The New York Times „Eine Frau, die weiß, wo sie herkommt und die die Kraft hat, uns dorthin mitzunehmen.“ The New York Times Book Review
