Find out how a poor man transformed the American legal system!
Books about notable court cases are nothing new, but the inclusion of movies inspired by them is an alluring twist. These authors explain complex issues in an easy-to-follow manner. They provide background to each trial and explain how it unfolded and why it remains significant. For example, Racism states that Medgar Evers's murder "[confronted] the public with the necessity for improvements in racial relationships." The movie aspect might be gimmicky, but it works. A popular cultural phenomenon is woven seamlessly into the texts to attract readers. Clear photographs in full color and black and white appear in 35mm film-like frames, adding visual appeal. Sources are well-documented, making this series a promising staple for reports.
