Skeleton of Justice
Skeleton of Justice
By Edith Roper and Clara Leiser
Dutton, 1941, 346 pp.

This is an important and depressing book. After serving for three years as a court reporter in Germany, Mrs. Roper was allowed to leave for Switzerland -- with copious notes and the blessing of the Propaganda Ministry -- on the understanding that she was to "enlighten the world about the progress in German jurisprudence." This is exactly what she has done, now that she has escaped to the United States, but hardly in a manner calculated to please Dr. Goebbels.
