Publisher Comments:

In this groundbreaking narrative of one of America?s most divisive trials and executions, award-winning journalist Bruce Watson mines deep archives and newly available sources to paint the most complete portrait available of the ?good shoemaker? and the ?poor fish peddler.? Opening with an explosion that rocks a quiet Washington, D.C., neighborhood and concluding with worldwide outrage as two men are executed despite widespread doubts about their guilt, Sacco and Vanzetti is the definitive history of an infamous case that still haunts the American imagination.

Jean Caillie, October 21, 2014 (view all comments by Jean Caillie)
I wanted to learn more about the case of "Sacco & Vanzetti" two Italian immigrants, anarchists, one a shoemaker the other a poor fish peddler who were executed in Massachusetts in the early 1920's. They awaited their fate, in prison, for a grueling 7 years. Many came forward to try to prove Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti's innocence. They had supporters across the world. This was quite a riveting read. Great history of injustice in our nation.
