dc.description.abstract Scottsboro is one of the most significant criminal cases of the twentieth century. Set in the Deep South of the 1930s, the false allegation of rape from two white women against nine black men brought America’s prejudices into the global spotlight. A number of historical accounts have been written over the years, but Ellen Feldman’s novel, Scottsboro, provides readers with a closer look at the personal lives, thoughts and feelings of those involved in the case. Through this the modern audience is able to delve deeply into three key themes: race, class, and ulterior motives. Readers from all backgrounds will find the novel to be an important reminder of the dangers of prejudice - especially prevalent at a time when instances of racial animosity are seen in the news on a daily basis. For lawyers and law students, Scottsboro provides insight into the nature of the legal profession, and the lengths a lawyer may go to in order to protect his or her career. en_NZ
