Inhaltsangabe: A reconstruction of the Alger Hiss trial, using testimony from edited transcripts of the trial, during which the reader can assume the role of juror.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up-The still controversial perjury trial of the State Department official and alleged Communist spy serves as an effective introduction to the U.S. legal system. Readers are asked to take the role of the jury, consider the evidence, and decide on the defendant's guilt or innocence. As in the other books in this series, the often-conflicting testimony gives readers an idea of how difficult it can be for a jury to reach a verdict. The pages are well designed, and the black-and-white photographs of the principal personalities, diagrams, and documents that the Hiss jury worked with are included. In addition, this book serves as a historical document as this case was pivotal in the careers of such men as Richard Nixon. It also serves as a good example of how citizens' views of government have changed; in the early 50s, the idea that the FBI could lie was unthinkable. This is a rare sort of nonfiction title; it presents the facts, but also inspires, fascinates, and provides food for thought.
