The Trial of Jack Ruby [for the Murder of Lee Harvey Oswald]

Prof. Kaplan and Waltz quarter-leather edition

Original price was: $59.95.Current price is: $39.95.

In “The Trial of Jack Ruby,” John Kaplan and Jon R. Waltz present a sophisticated dissection of the case, intelligently discussing legal concepts like the insanity defense and offering pointed ­critiques of the childishly squabbling attorneys on both sides. Ruby was convicted in 1964; he successfully appealed but died of cancer in 1967 while awaiting a new trial. The book also raises questions about the legal system’s ability to offer a fair trial to a defendant who murdered a handcuffed man in front of 80 million witnesses.
