Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the December 12, 2000, ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court handing the election to George W. Bush, the Court committed the unpardonable sin of being a knowing surrogate for the Republican Party instead of being an impartial arbiter of the law.

The Court majority, after knowingly transforming the votes of 50 million Americans into nothing and throwing out all of the Florida undervotes, actually wrote that their ruling was intended to preserve "the fundamental right" to vote. That an election can be stolen by the highest court in the land under the deliberate pretext of an inapplicable constitutional provision has got to be one of the most frightening and dangerous events ever to have occurred in this country.

With his powerful, brilliant, and courageous expose of crime by the highest court in the land, Vincent Bugliosi takes his place in the pantheon of patriots who have stood up and spoken out against injustice. When an article he wrote on Bush v. Gore appeared in The Nation magazine in February 2001, it drew the largest outpouring of letters and e-mail in the magazine's 136-year history, tapping a deep reservoir of outrage. Bugliosi's argument is here greatly expanded, amended, and amplified.

Review:

"Vincent Bugliosi has written the modern equivalent of Zola's indictment: 'J'Accuse.' I am not a lawyer, but I do know that when Bugliosi quotes a Yale law professor as saying the day of the Bush v. Gore decision was 'like the day of the Kennedy assassination' for him and many of his colleagues, this is not an exaggeration." From the Foreword by Molly Ivins

Review:

"It is a pathetic spectacle that Bugliosi beckons us to behold--this high, hallowed court and its revered majority sold out to Power." From the Foreword by Gerry Spence

Synopsis:

During the course of American history, wrongful events have occurred that challenged the very core of who we are as a people; and certain Americans have stood up and spoken out against these wrongs: Tom Paine, Edward R. Murrow, Daniel Ellsberg. Now Vincent Bugliosi takes his place in this special pantheon of patriots with his powerful, brilliant, and courageous expose of a crime committed by the highest court in the land. When an article he wrote on this theft of the presidency appeared in The Nation magazine, it drew the largest outpouring of letters and e-mail in the magazine's 136-year history, tapping a deep reservoir of outrage. The original article is now amended, and backed by amplifications and court document citations: it makes for fascinating, chilling reading.

Synopsis:

Instead of being impartial arbiters of the law, the five conservative U.S. Supreme Court justices knowingly, blatantly, gave the Presidency of the United States to their man, George W. Bush. Bugliosi sets out the arguments, citing chapter and verse, on how this was achieved and how the Constitution has been seriously and dangerously undermined. Forewords by Gerry Spence and Molly Ivins.
