Chicago 7 Banner

A documentary of courtroom confrontations from one of the most incredible trials in American history

The Trial of the Chicago 7: The Official Transcript is a collection of verbatim excerpts from the trial that contains – in the parties’ own words – not only the opposing philosophies of each side and virtually all of the significant courtroom confrontations between Judge Hoffman and the defendants (and their lawyers), but also the bitter – and often hilarious – repartee that characterized so much of the trial. Aaron Sorkin wrote the book’s introduction.

Published by Simon & Schuster, The Trial of the Chicago 7 is the 50th anniversary edition of The Tales of Hoffman, the best-selling edited version of the 22,302-page transcript that Bantam Books published and had in bookstores just 11 days after the 5-month trial ended in February 1970.  It is the authentic record of what happened and what was said at this notorious and historic trial.

This new edition, published concurrently with the release of Aaron Sorkin’s award-winning Netflix movie, adds two sections to the original: one containing post-trial biographies of all defendants (including Bobby Seale), the lawyers and the judge, and another section containing summaries of the post-trial appeals and other legal proceedings.
