Author Name    Schechter, Betty.

Title   The Dreyfus Affair: A National Scandal. Illustrated with Photographs.

Publisher    Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, [1965]. First Edition, First Printing, As Stated.

Seller ID   00015s

Octavo, black cloth (hardcover), 264 pp. Near-Fine, with light speckling (age darkened spotting) to top foredge, in a Very Good+ dust jacket with light soiling and slightly darkened spine. ̉This vivid account of the Dreyfus Affair often reads like a cloak-and-dagger mystery, for the bare facts of Dreyfus's case seem almost too melodramatic to be true. But at the same time, it provides a chilling example of what can happen when justice and the safeguards of proper legal procedure are sacrificed to some presumed honor or security. Although the scene of the Dreyfus Affair was France, the lessons it taught were not peculiarly French; they have meaning for all men who put the rights of the individual above those of society.Ó
