Riassunto: "I was absolutely enthralled by it. It's one of those non-fiction novels that one simply cannot put down." -Robert Coles, Pulitzer Prize-winning author

"A fascinating double-portrait of the Rabbi and his killer that holds the reader spellbound from beginning to end."--Rabbi Jack Riemer, known as "President Clinton's rabbi"

On Lincoln's birthday, 1966, a young man stood on the bimah of a multi-million dollar synagogue in suburban Detroit and, confronting his audience of 700 with the Colt .32 revolver he would soon use to commit murder and suicide, he announced:

"This congregation is a travesty and an abomination. It has made a mockery by its phoniness and hypocrisy of the beauty and spirit of Judaism. It is composed of people who on the whole make me ashamed to say that I'm a Jew. For the most part it is composed of men, women and children who care for nothing except their vain, egotistical selves. With this act I protest a humanly horrifying
and hence unacceptable situation."

This true crime book is a precise and harrowing account of the assassination of Rabbi Morris Adler by 23-year-old Richard Wishnetsky, a Phi Beta Kappa scholar at the University of Michigan and a Woodrow Wilson Fellow bound for the Divinity School at the University of Chicago. A troubled intellectual seeker, Wishnetsky knew Rabbi Adler one of the nation's most prominent and venerated
religious leaders, yet he settled on this learned and charismatic man as the appropriate target of his deepest rage.

"...riveting...case study of a crime committed decades ago...very interesting"--Gabe, Amazon Reviewer

"...detailed account of a brilliant young person's heartbreaking descent into homicidal madness...Highly recommended for those with a psychological bent and with an interest in the impact of society on the vulnerable young."--Kate, Amazon Reviewer

For anyone interested in the psychology of murder this one's a must.

Descrizione libro Prentice-Hall (NJ), 1970. Hardcover / Hardback. Condizione libro: Very Good. Condizione sovraccoperta: Good. First edition. Hardback. During a service in Congregation Shaaey Zedek, Rabbi Morris Adler was assassinated by a brilliant student who protested the moralities of a changing society. On the morning of Lincoln's birthday, 1966, 23yr old Richard Wishnetsky stood on the 'binah' of Detroit's Congregation Shaarey Zedek. After reading a brief statement condemning the congregation as a "travesty and an abomination," he used a sawed-off Colt.32 revolver to assassinate Rabbi Morris Adler, one of the nation's most prominent religious leaders. He then shot himself through the had. A tape recorder that was being used to record the Rabbi's sermon captured the episode in all its appalling detail. The tape was reproduced on news broadcasts coast-to-coast, provoking shock and incredulity. Not only did the murder-suicide appear wholly without motive, but also, as the known facts emerged, Richard Wishnetsky hardly seemed the sort who would be driven to senseless violence. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Michigan and a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship recipient, Richard was known to be a devoted admirer of Rabbi Adler! Shortly after that fateful winter morning, the author began interviewing literally hundreds of those who had known Rabbi Adler and Richard. Slowly patterns began to emerge, and this book is the result: an insightful, dramatic, and remarkable double portrait of murderer and victim. The author illuminates how one door after another - religion, psychiatry, education, and friendship - closed on Richard, leaving violence as his only alternative; and why Rabbi Adler came to appear as the logical and rightful target of Richard's deepest rage. With Epilogue. 381pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg. in G+ pcdw. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage.
