On April 15, 1920, two payroll clerks in Braintree, Massachusetts, were brutally gunned down during a robbery. Twenty days later, two Italian immigrants, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti-cardcarrying anarchists in an era of Red scares-were arrested. Convicted in a controversial trial, they spent six years awaiting execution. On August 23, 1927, while the whole world protested, Sacco and Vanzetti were executed. But were they guilty? Innocent? Authoritative and engrossing, and mining deep archives and new sources, Sacco and Vanzetti offers the most complete history of a case that still haunts the American imagination. Book jacket.
