In 1969 the Chicago Seven were charged with intent to 'incite, organize, promote, and encourage' antiwar riots during the Democratic National Convention. "The Chicago Conspiracy Trial" is an electrifying account of the months-long trial that commanded the attention of a divided nation.

"This work, aside from being a profound study of fear, is investigative journalism in its highest sense." - Studs Terkel "Schultz puts words together with a clarity of sense and syntax that is almost physically engaging.... A probe into the American conscience." - David Graber, Los Angeles Times "A masterful recapitulation of these anomalous events.... All politically literate Americans should read it." - Kirkus Reviews "A beautiful, compelling, tear-jerking, mind-boggling book." - William S. Burroughs"
