Nine brave people making a stand against stupidity.

From the dust-jacket blurb:
'For their action on May 17, 1968, nine men and women - one group among several involved in similar actions around the country - were arrested and charged with willful injury to Government property. In "The Trial of the Catonville Nine", Daniel Berrigan - one of those nine - has written a dramatic account of their trial based on official court records. Jury selection, the presentation of the facts of the case, the testimony of the defendants, lawyers summations, the day of the verdict - the sequence of actual events has been retained. The language used in the trial, though sharply reduced here and sometimes rearranged, also remains essentially the same.

' "The Trial of the Catonville Nine" focuses on the lives of nine men and women - their background, their risk of imprisonment - and the issues their action was meant to raise: the value of property, the power of governments to set policy and organize people for war, the sanctity of human life. It is a book which offers testimony to one of the most moving - and painful - Christian responses to the questions of our time.

' Daniel Berrigan, S.J., is a theologian, teacher, and well-known poet. He received the Lamont Poetry Award for his first volume of poems, "Time Without Number". He is the author of numerous other books, including "Night Flight to Hanoi", a diary of hsi trip requested by the North Vietnamese government for the release of three American pilots. "One who wishes to know what an authentically Christian response to the questions of our time is like", the "New York Review of Books" has written, "would be wise to listen to Father Berrigan." '

The book also includes some of Daniel Berrigan's poetry.
