Sacco and Vanzetti : the men, the murders, and the judgment of mankind by Bruce Watson( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the state of Massachusetts electrocuted Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti on August 23, 1927, it concluded one of the most controversial legal cases in American history. In the eight decades since, debate has raged over what was probably a miscarriage of justice. This case still haunts the American imagination. In the first full-length narrative of the case in thirty years, journalist Watson unwinds a tale that opens with anarchist bombs going off in a posh Washington, D.C., neighborhood and concludes with worldwide outrage over the execution of the "good shoemaker" and the "poor fish peddler." Watson mines deep archives and new sources, unveiling fresh details about these naïve dreamers and militant revolutionaries"--Publisher description
Bread and roses : mills, migrants, and the struggle for the American dream by Bruce Watson( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1912 textile strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts was a watershed moment in labor history as significant as the Haymarket bombing in Chicago and the Triangle fire in New York. In a history with the narrative drive of a novel, journalist Watson provides the first full-length account of the strike that began when textile workers stormed out of the mills on a frigid January day. Despite owners' predictions to the contrary, the walkout soon became a protracted Dickensian drama that included 23,000 strikers from fifty-one nations singing as they paraded through Lawrence, bayonet-toting militiamen patrolling the streets, and the daring evacuation of the strikers' tattered and hungry children to Manhattan, where they lived with strangers and wrote loving letters to their parents on the picket line.--From publisher description

Sacco and Vanzetti : the men, the murders, and the judgment of mankind by Bruce Watson( Recording )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forever shackled together by their alleged crimes, Sacco and Vanzetti were contrasting personalities, but both were militants who when arrested possessed guns and ammo. Watson quotes their trial record as he dramatizes questionable aspects of the proceeding, such as conflicting witnesses and a prejudicial judge. Still, Sacco and Vanzetti's alibis were not airtight, and questions remain about their knowledge of anarchist terrorism that run parallel to the doubtful justice of their convictions and executions
