Hoosier Public Enemy: A Life of John Dillinger -
Manufacturer: John A. Beineke
Hoosier Public Enemy: A Life of John Dillinger

During the bleak days of the Great Depression, news of economic hardship often took a backseat to articles on the exploits of an outlaw from Indiana John Dillinger. For a period of fourteen months during 1933 and 1934 Dillinger became the most famous bandit in American history, and no criminal since has matched him for his celebrity and notoriety. In Hoosier Public Enemy: A Life of John Dillinger, John A. Beineke delves into Dillinger's life from his unhappy days growing up in Indianapolis and Mooresville, Indiana; his first unlucky brush with the law; his embracing of a life of crime while behind bars at the Indiana Reformatory; his exploits as the leader of a gang that terrorized banks and outwitted law enforcement in the Midwest, earning a reputation as a Robin Hood-style criminal; and his headline-grabbing death in a hail of bullets on July 22, 1934, at the Biograph Theater in Chicago.
