Blackwell North Amer
The vivid re-creations of the trials are supplemented by incisive biographies of the major participants, brief features pinpointing specific legal issues, contemporary photographs and drawings of the courtroom proceedings, newspaper clippings, editorial commentary, and more. An illuminating, often disturbing, chronicle of societies torn apart by conflicts over religion, economics, class differences, moral codes, and politics, Famous Trials not only opens a window on the past but impels us to take a new look at the nature and effects of our system of justice today.
