Commemorating the eightieth anniversary of Sacco and Vanzetti's execution- with a new cover and new foreword

Electrocuted in 1927 for the murder of two guards in Massachusetts, the Italian- American anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti defied the verdict against them, maintaining their innocence to the end.
