By the time he fled Nazi Germany in 1934, he had argued a series of cases in Munichs courtrooms that shed light on the history of political justice in pre-Nazi Germany and, by extension, the miscarriage of justice in all Western democracies.Hirschberg was a rare figure: he fought for cases that reflected the new democracy rather than the old monarchy, that valued equality rather than hierarchy, and that showed respect for workers as well as aristocrats.Throughout the Weimar period Hirschberg squared off in court against Munichs conservatives, reactionaries, and Nazis-twice facing Hitler himself.

As he litigated politically charged disputes, he also began fighting to reverse the criminal convictions of innocent defendants and to study what mistaken verdicts teach us about the criminal justice system as a whole.In a unique blend of biography and courtroom drama, Justice Imperiled captures the excitement of Hirschbergs actual cases and presents legal battles that still rage, in different circumstances, to this day.
