1920s America was at peace at home and abroad but issues facing the nation were highlighted by a series of trials including baseball’s Black Sox, Al Capone, John T. Scopes, Sacco and Vanzetti, Leopold and Loeb, and the court martial of Billy Mitchell. Americans will find this book on trials of the Roaring Twenties” provocative. Great Trials begins with an extensive introduction describing the setting” of that tumultuous decade, and follows with an in-depth examination of 10 trials, touching on nearly every facet of American life. Each case is a fascinating story, and the fierce jousts in these courtrooms impart to the reader both how different things once were, and how much the nature of argumentative individuals has remained exactly the same.
