"In Taking the Stand, law professor and appellate attorney Alan Dershowitz engagingly narrates his childhood and youth and presents in detail his experiences as a lawyer and teacher. His outgoing personality shines through in this entertaining but highly informative memoir as he presents his views on capital punishment, affirmative action, freedom of speech, and national security, among other controversial topics."
