Book Review: The Case of Sacco and Vanzetti

By Fowler V. Harper


This book is a \u22critical analysis for lawyers and laymen\u22 of the proceedings which resulted in the execution of two Italians for murder. No well informed person can afford to be content with an opinion on this much discussed case without a thorough reading of the facts and evidence which the author has here set forth. The evidence upon which the jury\u27s verdict was predicated is carefully reviewed, together with the grounds upon which the subsequent motions for a new trial and appeals therefrom were argued. The conclusion seems inescapable, upon the facts presented in this book, that no reasonable and intelligent person could fail to entertain serious and grave doubts as to the guilt of these two men. The book is thoroughly documented and every fact set forth can be verified by reference to the records of this horrible trial
