Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

In 1969, the Chicago Seven were charged with intent to "incite, organize, promote, and encourage" antiwar riots during the Democratic National Convention. "The Chicago Conspiracy Trial "is an electrifying account of the months-long trial that commanded the attention of a divided nation. John Schultz, on assignment for "The Evergreen Review," witnessed the whole trial, from the jury selection to the aftermath of the verdict. In his vivid account, Schultz exposes the raw emotions and judicial corruption that came to define one of the most significant legal events in American history.

"This work, aside from being a profound study of fear, is investigative journalism in its highest sense."--Studs Terkel

" Schultz] puts words together with a clarity of sense and syntax that is almost physically engaging. . . . A probe into the American conscience."--David Graber, " Los Angeles Times"

"A masterful recapitulation of these anomalous events. . . . All politically literate Americans should read it]."--"Kirkus Reviews"""
