Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was Canada's trial of the century - held in an American court. Media titan Conrad Black, by turns respected and reviled for decades in Canada and around the world, faced off with U.S. prosecutors on charges of criminal fraud stemming from his activities with Hollinger Inc.

The trial was tilted from the outset. Black attempted to tilt things in his favour by using his considerable wealth to mount a ferocious defence. But his efforts were countered by an American justice system that is heavily tilted in favour of the prosecution. And ironically, the same wealth that Black used to strengthen his defence was used against him as the prosecution repeatedly played the class card to turn jurors against him.Employing skilled analysis, expert insight, and touches of warmth and humour, Steve Skurka brings the trial to life in a way that readers have never experienced before. Tilted: The Trial of Conrad Black is the authoritative book on the most important trial of the decade.

Synopsis:

In 2007 media titan Conrad Black faced off with U.S. prosecutors on charges of criminal fraud. Tilted is the authoritative book on Canada's biggest news story of the year.
