Altschuler’s book, published in 2016 by the American bar Association and co-written with former Cornell law professor Faust Rossi, Ten Great American Trials, provides accounts of some of the most highly publicized  and fascinating  court cases of the twentieth century. The book also assesses the impact of cultural, social, and political values on the proceedings and the outcomes. The cases, several of which have been dubbed ‘the crime of the century’, were selected because they are dramatic, suspenseful, emotional, intellectually powerful, and have become part of American culture.

Glenn Altschuler is the Thomas and Dorothy Litwin Professor of American Studies at Cornell University. He received his PhD in American history from Cornell in 1976 and has been an administrator and teacher at Cornell since 1981. He is the author or coauthor of 11 books and more than one thousand essays and reviews. An animating force in the program in American studies at Cornell, Altschuler has won several awards for teaching and undergraduate advising. His work has been featured in the New York Times, National Public Radio, and The Boston Globe.

Many alumni attest that their role as a CAAAN volunteer is one of the most rewarding activities one can do as a Cornellian!
