Yep, reviews of KC Johnson and Stuart Taylor’s dissection of the Duke lacrosse scandal are starting to come in-this morning Abigail Thernstrom gives it a super-duper one in the Wall Street Journal:

“‘Until Proven Innocent’ is a stunning book. It recounts the Duke lacrosse case in fascinating detail and offers, along the way, a damning portrait of the institutions–legal, educational and journalistic–that do so much to shape contemporary American culture. Messrs. Taylor and Johnson make it clear that the Duke affair–the rabid prosecution, the skewed commentary, the distorted media storyline–was not some odd, outlier incident but the product of an elite culture’s most treasured assumptions about American life, not least about America’s supposed racial divide.”
