In-depth history of the libel trial where a NY pol sued former President Theodore Roosevelt for libel in 1915. At risk was TR's honorable name and reputation as well as the not insignificant sum of $50,000 awarded the plaintiff should the old Rough Rider lose. Dan Abrams - yes, the host of "Live PD" and an MSNBC executive / chief legal counsel - authored the book and made a complex civil case easy to follow (if you paid attention) while adding liberal doses of color and an unmistakable sense of the era of the early 1900s. Photos show TR in his Bull Moose persona and made it clear that courtrooms and juries were
populated by men. An excellent addition to the life history of an American we thought we knew everything about.
