Harvey Amazon Bestselling Author

By Michael February 7, 2016 4

Amazon has a new bestselling author. Just added to the list of Amazon bestselling authors is Harold Michael Harvey.

Cascade Publishing House (CPH) is pleased to announce that Justice in the Round: Essays on the American Jury System is the number one bestseller on Amazon in the category of books on discrimination and racism. Additionally, it is the number one bestseller in the categories of law, procedure, litigation and juries.

Also, it is the number two bestselling book on law, rules and procedures as they relate to juries. Justice in the Round is in Amazon’s top 100 selling books on the topic of law, constitutional law and human rights, coming in as the number 27 bestseller.

Justice in the Round is written by Harold Michael Harvey. This Amazon bestseller places into historical and political perspective justice in America following the George Zimmerman and Michael Dunn jury trials and the grand jury proceedings in the Michael Brown case in Ferguson, Missouri and the Eric Garner case in Staten Island, New York.

“One salient fact shapes my frame of reference in these essays: All jurors bring to the jury room their genetics and their sundry environments. By virtue of this fact, we are all subconsciously race-conscious. No one can divorce themselves from their genetic makeup, but we can, if we choose, overcome the environmental conditions that will enable us to be fair to people with different genetics and social standing,” Harvey writes.

The former lawyer draws upon his experience as a trial lawyer in this prophetic summation on race and justice in America.
