9780226741147: The Chicago Conspiracy Trial: Revised Edition

In 1969, the Chicago Seven were charged with intent to "incite, organize, promote, and encourage" antiwar riots during the Democratic National Convention. The Chicago Conspiracy Trial is an electrifying account of the months-long trial that commanded the attention of a divided nation. John Schultz, on assignment for The Evergreen Review, witnessed the whole trial, from the jury selection to the aftermath of the verdict. In his vivid account, Schultz exposes the raw emotions and judicial corruption that came to define one of the most significant legal events in American history.

"This work, aside from being a profound study of fear, is investigative journalism in its highest sense."—Studs Terkel

"[Schultz] puts words together with a clarity of sense and syntax that is almost physically engaging. . . . A probe into the American conscience."—David Graber, Los Angeles Times

"A masterful recapitulation of these anomalous events. . . . All politically literate Americans should read [it]."—Kirkus Reviews

From the Author:

I just returned from the Showcasing of the Chicago Conspiracy Trial at the American Bar Assn. convention in Chicago Aug 3-6. I was on a panel before the re-enactment, consulted on the re-enactment with many of the actors, I was on a panel after the re-enactment, talked with attorneys and others attending--in general, a marvellous event, organized by ABA and attorneys and staff of Chicago law firm Jenner and Block. The Chicago Conspiracy Trial was sold in the lobby. along with my book 'No One Was Killed,'about the Democratic National Convention of 1968. There was a great deal of curiosity about the trial and the Democratic Convention of 1968 and their unusual implications for trials growing out of contemporary cyber protest and world trade protest in Seattle, Washingtion, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Quebec City, and so on. I believe the reader would benefit from reading the account of the DNC of 1968 along with The Chicago Conspiracy Trial to get a grasp of events that have had such a large impact upon American political life.

From the Back Cover:

The Chicago Conspiracy Trial is a dynamic explication of that trial as well as the events surrounding it. The author, John Schultz, witnessed the whole trial, and was the only investigator to obtain the story of how Judge hoffman successfully intimidated the jury. Schultz shows how the trial was a massive attempt to reshape the political turmoil of the time; the trial's impact, measured in terms of fear and intimidation, can still be felt today.
