BOOK INFO: Clarence Seward Darrow (1857-1938) was an American lawyer, leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union, and prominent advocate for Georgist economic reform. He was known for defending some high-profile cases, including the McNamara brothers; the American Federation of Labor had called on Darrow to represent them, but as the jury was being seated, Darrow was accused of bribery. Darrow arranged a plea bargain, which spared the brothers from the death penalty, but many in organized labor felt he sold out the movement. Considered a 'sophisticated country lawyer', Darrow remains notable for his wit; he was quoted as saying, 'The trouble with law is lawyers.' Here, his autobiography, together with the additional 59-pg. Darrow's Plea, written in his own defense to the jury that exonerated him of the charge of bribery at Los Angeles, August, 1912. Includes index. Joseph P. Galda; American Federation of Labor; AFL; American Civil Liberties Union; ACLU; Georgist economic reform; McNamara brothers; Leopold and Loeb; Ossian Sweet; John T.
