The letters of Sacco and Vanzetti by Nicola Sacco ( Book )
24 editions published between 1928 and 1997 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Electrocuted in 1927 for the murder of two guards in Massachusetts, the Italian-American anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti defied the verdict against them, maintaining their innocence to the end. Whether they were guilty continues to be the subject of debate today. First published in 1928, Sacco and Vanzetti's letters represent one of the great personal documents of the twentieth century: a volume of primary source material as famous for the splendor of its impassioned prose as for the brilliant light it sheds on the characters of the two dedicated anarchists who became the focus of worldwide attention
