Description: Not just one civil action, but hundreds of them, provide the backdrop for this utter triumph of investigative journalism and narrative courtroom nonfiction. Dan Zegart brings to vivid life the dramatic stories behind the headlines. He takes readers behind the scenes with the charismatic Ron Motley, one of the most successful civil trial lawyers in the country -- and to the front lines of the legal crusade against the corporations that run the tobacco industry.

Expanding on his attention-getting pieces in The Nation, Zegart paints a frightening portrait of the most cold-blooded legal offensives that Big Tobacco could buy, the human toll on anyone who got in its way -- whistle-blowers who fear for their lives, journalists who fear for their careers -- and the rise of the relentless, inspired strategy that finally pierced the industry's seemingly impenetrable armor.

An eyewitness account based on five years spent travelling with Motley, hundreds of interviews and over 200,000 pages of internal corporate documents, this legal adventure weaves together firsthand stories of plaintiffs, lawyers, jurors, and scientists. Leading up through the tobacco industry's once-inconceivable multi-hundred-billion-dollar defeat, "Civil Warriors" is an unforgettable chronicle of the American legal system at its best and worst.
