This is a study of major national efforts in the past 15 years to reduce the impact of money, and the lack of it, in determining whether a criminal defendant obtains freedom prior to trial. Thomas offeres the results of a national study on bail reform since its beginning with the Manhattan Bail Project of 1961 and a survey of the major operational changes in the bail system since then.
