Scottsboro: A Tragedy of the American Southby Dan T. Carter
In a chapter written especially for this revised edition of his modern classic, Carter recounts the latest turns in the case. Included are the surprising story of the last surviving Scottsboro defendant and the vivid description of Victoria Price's libel suit against the network that televised the drama and subsequent trial--presumably the last of the Scottsboro trials.
