9780070231603: To Life

Elmer Gertz has defended famous people--including Henry Miller, Nathan Leopold, and Jack Ruby--and he has become famous in his own right through his struggle for civil liberties and personal rights.Gertz has taken on a lengthy list of cases and causes over the six decades of his legal career. He fought successfully against the censorship of Henry Miller's book "Tropic of Cancer," ""which had been banned in Chicago for obscenity. He got Nathan Leopold released from prison after Leopold had served 34 years for his part in the death of 14-year-old Bobby Franks. An ardent foe of the death penalty, Gertz labored for years as part of a national team of lawyers that was finally able to overturn Jack Ruby's death sentence for the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald. Gertz's cases have helped make libel law in the nation.For this edition, Gertz adds an afterword that covers the 15 years since the book's first publication. Gertz talks of Henry Miller's last days and his travels to the USSR on behalf of the Refuseniks.
