Summary, etc.:
"The Boston Massacre has often been called the first shots of the American Revolution. As John Adams would later remember, 'On that night the formation of American independence was born.' Yet when the British soldiers faced trial, the young lawyer Adams was determined that they receive a fair one. He volunteered to represent them, keeping the peace in a powder keg of a colony, and in the process created some of the foundations of what would become United States law"--Dust jacket flap.
