Ms. Rabinowitz talked about her book No Crueler Tyrannies: Accusation, False Witness, and Other Terrors of Our Times, published by Wall Street Journal Books. The book collected her investigative stories on false accusations of sex crimes into one account of failed justice. She recalled the hysteria that accompanied the child sex-abuse witch-hunts of the 1980s and 1990s: how a single anonymous phone call could bring to bear an army of recovered-memory therapists, venal and ambitious prosecutors, and hypocritical judges that jailed hundreds of innocent Americans for crimes that did not even occur. close
