Gr 7 Up-This book provides background information, the cases for the prosecution and for the defense, and a follow-up to one of the most controversial murder trials of all time. Pellowski touches on many of the factors that affected its outcome, including the strong personalities involved, complex scientific evidence, accusations of racism, and massive media coverage. A portrayal of Simpson the football hero is offset by a description of his hot temper and jealousy-ridden, troubled marriages. The author presents the elements of the investigation in an objective manner, often pausing to ask readers' opinions as each development unfolds. One chapter compares the murder trial to the civil trial that followed. Excerpts of public opinion and legal analysis are included as well as a page of questions to be used as a springboard for discussion. Black-and-white photos of Simpson and others accompany the text. Well done and worthy of shelf space.
