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.
