The Sacco-Vanzetti affair is the most famous and controversial case in American legal history.

Historian Paul Avrich is the indispensable source for the anarchist background to the internationally famous Sacco-Vanzetti case. This book treats a subject never taught in American schools: anarchism in America. Among the book's astonishing insights is that the FBI was created to deal with perceived threats by "radical" groups in the early 20th century, of which the "most dangerous," according to its founders, was the network of Italian anarchists that Sacco and Vanzetti were associated with. Long before nine-eleven, or Oklahoma City, Americans were whipped into a frenzy of fear and loathing for terrorist violence. That climate of fear explains, perhaps more than anything else, why two Italian immigrants were framed for a payroll robbery-murder most likely committed by a professional criminal gang. This book is a major source for my new novel "Suosso's Lane." For more information see https://www.web-e-books.com/index.php#load?type=book&product=suosso

I read another book about Sacco and Vanzetti which is very good. This one, however, is great. It is well organized, and, while the other book spent a good portion of the book on the trial, in this one you got to understand better who these anarchists were. It is not biased either for or against their conviction. Extremely well written.

Most people know nothing of why the United States has such prohibitive laws against the first amendment now. But long before 9/11, terrorism struck the USA. Another set of terrorist acts were passed at that time that led to many restrictions on speech and association. These laws were similar to, and in some cases more extreme than Bush's invasive and repressive laws in the first Patriot Act and the Democrat's invasive and repressive laws that followed in the second revision of the Patriot Act. You may even see parallels in how extreme shock led to extreme removal of constitutionally protected activities and led to absolute invasion of privacy, similar to how the modern 9/11 led to extreme laws such as the Talent-Feinstein inclusion in the Patriot Act that mandates warrantless law enforcement monitoring of those with rhinosinusitis. You will see many other parallels as you go through this book between how people in the United States responded to the shock of terrorism on American soil then, and how they respond now. Though the purpose of this book is merely to cover in detail what is known about the surroundings of the largest previous terrorist act in the United States, which also took place in NYC. It is a highly entertaining book from start to finish. You will get to know each of the terrorists, along with the controversial evidence for and against each of them. But the terrorism of that era wasn't the extreme Islamic terrorism of our era. The terrorists of this book were members of the extreme anarchist parties in Europe.

Paul Avrich has made a career out of anarchist history -- anarchistory, I suppose you'd call it. He's an excellent writer and this book is a welcome addition to his series. The title is a little misleading, as Sacco and Vanzetti, who were executed in the late 20's in one of the most controversial criminal cases of this century, aren't really dealt with too much.
What is dealt with are the Galleanists, the followers of Italian anarchist Luigi Galleani, who really framed American anti-radical policy (unintentionally) by way of a series of bombings that occurred in 1919 and 1920. These bombings offered the government the pretext for the unlawful series of police actions called the "Red Scare". These events are important even today because they framed American policy toward domestic leftist radicalism, much of which remains in force today.
The book follows the lives (and deaths) of many Italian anarchists, including Galleani himself, and is a fascinating exploration of their lives and their anarchist subculture at a time when anarchism was on the wane everywhere except Spain.
To the modern anarchist, the book offers as much of a sense of what anarchism shouldn't be as what it used to be. The Galleanist use of bombs did anarchism a considerable disservice as it gave the press something sensational to latch onto -- even today, some 70 years later, people still link anarchism with bombs. This is a direct offshoot of the Galleanists' activities, as explored in this book.
Avrich has a very readable writing style, and the book is jam-packed with historical references and interesting stories. Like all of his anarchist books, this one is worth your time.
