B01From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up-This study covers the 1932 kidnapping/murder of Charles Lindbergh, Jr. and the subsequent arrest and trial of Bruno Richard Hauptmann. Campbell devotes two chapters to the crime and its investigation and three to the trial, appeals, and execution. The book includes black-and-white photos, a map, numerous quotes, a time line, and annotated bibliographies. There are a number of errors and omissions, an inadequate index, a lack of specific dates (especially in the first chapter), and some internal inconsistencies. The trial descriptions repeat much of the material from the earlier part of the book and follow a dull "then he said, then he testified, then he sought" format. The author doesn't place the kidnapping in the context of the times (it was a common crime; from 1929 to 1932 the U.S. had 2500 such cases). Judith Edwards's The Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping in American History (Enslow, 2000), which overlaps in audience, is thorough and avoids Campbell's awkward crime/trial separation.

Lucent Books' 'Famous Trials' series showcases trials that exemplify both society's praiseworthy condemnation of universally unacceptable behaviour and its misguided persecution of individuals based on fear and ignorance, as well as trials that leave open the question of whether justice has been done. Each volume begins by setting the scene and providing a historical context to show how society's mores influence the trial process and the verdict. Each book goes on to present a detailed and lively account of the trial, including liberal use of primary source material such as direct testimony, lawyers' summations, and contemporary and modern commentary. A timeline also allows readers to see the scope of the trial at a glance, annotated bibliographies provide both sources for further research and a thorough list of works consulted, + glossary. Illus., Notes, Timeline, For Further Reading, Works Consulted, + Index. 96pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Pictorial glazed covers. F.
