Even though he mimics Dickens with remarkable fidelity, Bueno de Mesquita is up to something far more insidious than just defending old Scrooge

The novella opens 13 years after those three ghosts ruined Scrooge's evening to save his soul. Once again, he's winding his way through narrow London streets bustling with Christmas cheer, but this time, "his eyes sparkled with the innocence of youth, as if living a life reborn. Even though he mimics Dickens with remarkable fidelity, Bueno de Mesquita is up to something far more insidious than just defending old Scrooge. In the end, he wants to demonstrate the obfuscation of sentimentality and the conflicted nature of people's motives.

Ebenezer Scrooge (/ˌɛbɪˈniːzər ˈskruːdʒ/) is the protagonist of Charles Dickens' 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol. At the beginning of the novella, Scrooge is a cold-hearted miser who despises Christmas. The tale of his redemption by three spirits (the Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come) has become a defining tale of the Christmas holiday in the English-speaking world.

This book takes elements generally considered bedrock of the original--Scrooge's unrepentant stinginess, his unequivocal redemption, and even the angelic benevolence of Tiny Tim--and flips them around to reconsider the tale in a new way. Along the way, there's some sly dabbling in Dickens' fictional universe and digressions into Victorian economics that make the book an almost didactic experience. Part courtroom drama, part philosophical debate, Professor Bueno De Mesquita has crafted a sharp-witted coda to Dickens' ghostly little book.

I can count the number of books I have read in one sitting on the fingers of one hand, and this book is one of them. This magnificant novel takes off where Dicken's A Christmas Carol left off. This beautifully written and fast paced book presents the compelling story of God's trial for the soul of Ebenezer Scrooge, offering Tiny Tim as his defending attorney. Skillfully drawning upon meticulous historical research, Bueno de Mesquita establishes the counterintuitive argument that perhaps Scrooge, and thus Dickens, may have been misunderstood. Part mystery concering the outcome of the trial, part morality tale about the true meaning of kindness in life, and part fascinating historical education, this book will be a delight for fans of the original Dicken's book as well as for those who have never read it, and can thus approach this book on its own terms. This novel cleverly encourages readers not only to reevaluate Scrooge, but also inspires us to rethink the critical judgments that we often make too easily of others. This is a book that stays with you long after you read it. Scrooge reminds us that there are many ways to be the best person we can, and as many ways to bring out the best in those we care about.

The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge challenges our presumption of Dickens' classic tale, "A Christmas Carol". Was Scrooge really a friendless miser? Set as a Faustian trial, Tiny Tim must prove before a court of the Almighty that Scrooge's soul is worthy of entry into heaven. Set against our prejudices, and a court room of Scrooge's detractors, Tiny Tim composes a defense based on primarily on Dickens' own words, supplemented with contemporary evidence from Christmas 1843. With perhaps overtones towards governance, Prof. Bueno de Mesquita -who is a distinguished political scientist-- questions whether conspicuous generosity to some at the expense of others is superior to even handed meanness. As the story unfolds Scrooge's salvation remains perilously balanced with threats always emerging from unsuspecting quarters.
Although the Dickensian style is somewhat ponderous, this is a fascinating tale that confronts our understanding of righteousness. It is well worth a read.

A book for the holidays, if you're a little bit wicked. The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge recounts Scrooge's attempt to get out of Purgatory, with Tiny Tim as his lawyer! If you've got an economics or political history bent, or if you're an English lit major, a Dickens fan, or just stuck with a smartass sense of humor, you will enjoy this one.(Caveat, a lot of adjectives, but, then the same might be said for Dickens, the dickens!)
