History Bites: Sacco and Vanzetti - The Men, the Murders, and the Judgement of Mankind

Description: 

“A century ago, as America emerged from another pandemic, frenzy arose over the case
of a ‘good shoemaker and a poor fish peddler’ accused of robbery and murder. As it
twisted from arrest to trial to six years of appeals, the case of Sacco and Vanzetti caught
the world’s attention, sparking protests in every major capital. Dozens of books have
been written about the case but Bruce Watson’s Sacco and Vanzetti: The Men, The
Murders and The Judgment of Mankind is ‘the most thorough and readable plumbing
yet of the case record’” (The Nation.)

Along with his popular column in the Amherst Bulletin, Bruce Watson has written for
Smithsonian, American Heritage, Yankee, Nautilus, and other publications.  He is the
author of four books on American history and currently writes The Attic, an online
magazine for “a kinder, cooler America.”
