"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 5-8-A clear and detailed account of the Supreme Court decision of 1857 concerning slavery. This controversial judgment was one of the many factors that led the United States toward civil war. January explores the reasons the case was brought to trial, the long legal battle fought and lost, and the politics of the issue. The writing is not difficult, but it is somewhat dry. Interspersed thoroughout the book are many full-color and black-and-white photographs and reproductions. These illustrations evoke a sense of the period and include portraits of many of the prominent figures in the drama. Two maps help locate the relevant events. Large print and wide margins lend a clean, uncluttered look to the text. Those with an interest in the case will be captivated by the account and researchers will find more than enough information for a report.
