Cultural Writing. History. Political Science. The explosive protests and police riots outside the 1968 Democratic National Convention, and the ensuing conspiracy trial gave voice to the tumultuous politics of the time. Frank Condon and Ron Sossi have crafted a dramatically gripping play script from a careful selection of actual court transcripts, accompanied here by an introduction, and historical reflections written by Tom Hayden, one of the original defendants. This potent book captures the trial's original energy, its confrontational and sometimes theatrical tactics, and its absolute outrage.
