“Aaseng continues his useful series on decision making with incisive coverage of eight famous criminal trials of the 20th century. Beginning with the Lindbergh kidnapping case, he also covers the New York Times libel case (the state of Alabama’s attempt to stifle accusations of racism), the Chicago Seven (antiwar conspiracy), Patty Hearst as outlaw, Dan White’s ‘Twinkie defense,’ the Ford Motor Company’s Pinto explosion, ‘Subway Vigilante’ Bernhard Goetz, and O. J. Simpson’s acquittal of murder. . . . A unique contribution.”
