Pulitzer Prize Winner Maurice Possley’s Thoughts

Through painstaking research, Peter Afrasiabi has¬†unearthed never-before-revealed documents to shed new light on a dark chapter of American jurisprudence: the persecution of Harry Bridges, an Australian immigrant who became one of the most significant labor leaders in U.S. history. At a time when prosecutorial misconduct and anti-immigrationsentiment still echo through America’s criminal justice system, “Burning Bridges” is a deftly written account of how prosecutors stacked the deck and still lost, but managed to carve 25 years out of an innocent man’s life.
