Description

The trial judge called them anarchistic bastards. Political activists, Italian-born Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were framed and executed for murder in a wave of anti-immigrant hysteria in Boston in the 1920s. By illustrating how anarchists and immigrants were the terrorists of yesteryear, this book is a grim reminder of the consequences of using fear as a political weapon.

Eventually pardoned in 1977 by Governor Dukakis, Sacco and Vanzetti's case sparked an unprecedented international defense campaign--including among it's supporters writers, artists, and musicians--and remains one of the most famous political trials in history.

Vanzetti] loved his adopted country, but his hatred of war was greater than his devotion to an abstraction.--William Kunstler (U.S. civil rights lawyer)
