Sendes vanligvis innen 7-15 dager
The Trial of the Haymarket Anarchists is the culmination of seven years of research into the 1886 Haymarket bombing and subsequent trial. It not only overturns the prevailing consensus on this event, it documents in detail how the basic facts, as far as they can be determined, have been distorted, obscured, or suppressed for seventy years. Based on both a reexamination of well-known sources and the discovery of many new ones, Timothy Messer-Kruse demonstrates that the received wisdom regarding Chicago's anarchist leaders - that they were tried and convicted for their ideas in a trial in which little evidence of their guilt was presented - is absolutely false.
