FROM THE PUBLISHER - A book about the December, 1969 FBI/Hanrahan raid against, and subsequent deaths of, Black Panther Party leaders Mark Clark and Fred Hampton. ‘Was it a matter of murder? Or was it instead a result of standard law enforcement procedures against dangerous radicals? In December, 1969, two members of the Black Panther Party were killed in Chicago, and several others wounded, by gunfire from a raiding party of police dispatched by the Cook County State's Attorney. The police said they had fired only in self-defense. The surviving Panthers said the two men had been murdered. AN AMERICAN VERDICT is about the trial that eventually took place - of the Cook County State's Attorney and twelve policemen for ‘obstructing justice.’ It is about the original even - the police raid that took place on that now distant moment in the late 1960's. It is about Chicago - May Daley's Chicago - 'a particular American city at a particular moment in time.' It is about the strange passions and self-deceptions of ordinary men and the way so many of us remain invisible to one another; and about the passage of time.’ Very Good In Dustjacket That Is Slightly Faded Along The Spine.
