Thanks for your kind comments on the book.
The results on page 322 'after normalization' come from the following:
The joint probability for the data in the case of H1 (line 3, page 331) is shown to be 4.26E6
The joint probability for the data in the case of H2 (middle of page 331) is shown to be 4.67E5
The joint probability for the data in the case of H3 (line 1, page 332) is shown to be 1.93E4
The joint probability for the data in the case of H4 (last line of box, page 331) is shown to be 3.78E4
When you normalize the four values 4.26E6, 4.67E5, 1.93E4, 3.78E4 (i.e. scale them to sum to 1) you end up (to 3 decimal places) with 0.007, 0.075, 0.310, 0.608
and these are the four values respectively for the probability of the data given H1, H2, H3, and H4.
What is confusing (and we will put thisin the errata) is that when we write P(D  H1) etc at the bottom of page 332 the D refers not to the Defendant's race but to the data observed.
