Table of Contents
<p> Chicago's Trunk Murder is a valuable reconstruction<br> of an 1880s Chicago murder trial. The author's<br> exhaustive primary research in court records, <br> newspapers, and geneaological records and<br> thorough mining of the relevant secondary<br> literature create a fascinating portrait of the<br> dynamics of anti-immigrant prejudice and<br> 'common sense justice' (as opposed to a concern<br> for due process) underlying a criminal trial in an<br> emerging gilded Age American metropolis. <br> --Michael J. pfeifer, John Jay College of<br> Criminal Justice, City University of New York<p>
