The Devil on Trial: Witches, Anarchists, Atheists, Communists, and Terrorists in America's Courtrooms (Junior Library Guild Selection) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Featuring five famous trials, this book examines the way our right to a fair trial can be threatened, when people are tempted to abandon their principles in the name of safety. Trials included are the Salem Witch Trials, the Haymarket Affair Trial, the Scopes “Monkey” Trial, the trial of Alger Hiss, and the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui—the latter not yet covered extensively in any book.

About the Author

"This book grew out of a belief that what is most gripping about history is the fact that it is a story of human beings in conflict," say authors Maxine Rosaler and Phillip Marguiles. The coauthors of several books for young adults on subjects ranging from science to history, law, and warfare, Maxine Rosaler and Phillip Marguiles live in New York City.
