This chapter determines the significance of the death of the trial in the United States for its people. It identifies the consequences of the death of the trial for our national life, explores some of the alternative methods of social ordering that are replacing the trial, and asks what difference these alternative methods make. The chapter also argues that assumptions about the nature of the American jury trial animating at least some critics are wrong.
