Republished fifty years later to coincide with the release this fall of the film of the same title written and directed by Aaron Sorkin with an all-star cast, this is the classic account of perhaps the most infamous, and definitely the most entertaining, trial in recent American history.

In the fall of 1969 eight prominent anti-Vietnam War activists were put on trial for conspiring to riot at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. One of the eight, Black Panther cofounder Bobby Seale, was literally bound and gagged in court by order of the judge, Julius Hoffman, and his case was separated from that of the others.

The activists, who included Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, and Tom Hayden, and their attorneys, William Kunstler and Leonard Weinglass, insisted that the First Amendment was on trial. Their witnesses were a virtual who's who of the 1960s counterculture: Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Arlo Guthrie, Judy Collins, Norman Mailer, among them.

The defendants constantly interrupted to protest what they felt were unfair rulings by the judge. The trial became a circus, all the while receiving intense media coverage. The convictions that resulted were subsequently overturned on appeal, but the trial remained a political and cultural touchstone, a mirror of the deep divisions in the country. The Trial of the Chicago 7 consists of the highlights from trial testimony with a brief epilogue describing what later happened to the principal figures.




 

本書在五十年後重新出版,恰逢由亞倫•索爾金編劇執導,眾星雲集的同名電影在今年秋天上映,書中記錄了美國近年來最惡名昭彰、最具娛樂效果的一場審判。 
 
在一九六九年秋天,八位知名的反越戰人士因為在一九六八年芝加哥民主黨全國代表大會上密謀暴動而遭受審判。八人中的巴比•希爾是「黑豹」黨的共同創始人,他的案件將另外審理。法官朱利葉斯•霍夫曼在法庭上命令把他五花大綁並堵住了嘴。
 
包括阿比•霍夫曼、傑利•魯賓和湯姆•海登以及他們的律師威廉•庫斯特勒和倫納德•溫格拉斯在內的人士堅稱,在法庭上受審的是第一修正案。本案的證人基本上涵蓋了六零年代反主流文化的知名人士:包括艾倫•金斯伯格、提莫西•利瑞、阿洛•格思理、茱蒂•柯林斯、諾曼•梅勒。
 
被告不斷打斷審判的進行來抗議法官的不公裁決,庭審成了一場馬戲秀,也因此受到媒體的強力報導。判決結果在隨後的上訴中被推翻,但審判仍成為政治和文化的試金石,它反映了美國對此一議題的嚴重分歧。《芝加哥七人案》也加入了法庭證詞的高潮及簡短的結語,說明了後來主要人物的遭遇。
