The reader of this excellent and searching book [The Right to Remain Silent] will have a thorough understanding of the constitutional right that insures due process of law in trying the accused. Discussing actual cases of people persecuted because they claimed their privilege under the Fifth Amendment, the author shows how dangerous it is to take this stand as an admission of guilt. He reaches far back into ancient times as well to show how necessary it is to respect the right of the accused to remain silent.
