This book takes the facts and presents them clearly and concisely. Schanzer presents the questions the events pose and the various attempts to answer them, but does not take any one side. The last part of the book is devoted to summaries of what happened to those involved after the trials, which provided a nice perspective. My favorite part of the book is the woodcut illustrations throughout. They are in black and white with touches of red that cause elements to pop.
