This is an invaluable source for Leopold and Loeb scholars. It was originally published it the 1920's and due to "decency" requirements in publishing at the time, the subject of the pairs homosexual relationship must be read between the lines- but if you know what you're looking for you'll find it. It is however, noticably censored in those areas. Clarence Darrow's summation is included as well as the rarely seen closing argument of the States Attorney; this book also provides excellent insite into Leopold and Loeb's unique individual personal characterisitcs and activities (obscure things, such as a list of the notebook sketches of Leopold). As far as I know, the last publication of the Amazing Crime and Trial of Leopold and Loeb was in the late 1950's so obtaining it may take a bit of investigation work but it is practically a requirement if you want to get to know these guys.
