Announcing Theodore W. Grippo's award winning new book:
With Malice Aforethought
The Execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti
With Malice Aforethought has been granted
The revealing new book by Chicago attorney, Ted Grippo, chronicles a tragic tale of intolerance and injustice during early 20th Century America.
The story of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti has been told many times, but never before has such a keen eye been turned on the legal proceedings. Through meticulous research, the author has uncovered startling new evidence of judicial and prosecutorial misconduct leading to the state-sanctioned execution of two immigrant workers who espoused unpopular political beliefs.
With Malice Aforethought includes thought-provoking historical insights, gripping accounts from inside the courtroom, heartrending letters from Sacco to his young children and important photographs from a shameful time of ethnic prejudice and political greed and arrogance.
Whether you're a fellow attorney, a history buff, a civil rights advocate or an interested reader, you'll be just as astonished by the author’s revelations as you will be moved by the tragedy of Sacco and Vanzetti.
"A mistake of justice is a tragedy.
Deliberate injustice is an infamy.”
