Award-winning journalist Newton brings readers the first truly comprehensive consideration of Earl Warren, the politician-turned-Chief Justice, who refashioned the place of the Supreme Court in American life.
From the Publisher:
In Justice for All, Jim Newton, an award-winning journalist for the Los Angeles Times, brings readers the first truly comprehensive consideration of Earl Warren, the politician-turned- Chief Justice who refashioned the place of the Supreme Court in American life through cases whose names have entered the common parlance-Brown v. Board of Education, Griswold v. Connecticut, Miranda v. Arizona. Drawing on unmatched access to government, academic, and private documents pertaining to Warren's life and career, Newton illuminates both the public and the private Warren. The result is a monumental biography of a complicated and principled figure that will become a seminal work of twentieth-century American history.
Annotation:
This monumental study of the life and career of Earl Warren, who served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 1953 to 1969, draws on newly available documents as well as interviews with those who knew him. Jim Newton traces Warren's political career prior to his tenure on the court, as prosecutor and then as governor of California with presidential aspirations. Appointed by Eisenhower in 1952, Chief Justice Warren presided over a historic court whose decisions included Brown vs. Board of Education, and whose progressive approach earned him the enmity of the political right wing, as well as a famous bumper sticker that read "Impeach Earl Warren." Newton reveals much about the inner workings of the court, and about Warren's relations with his fellow jurists, as well as the political turmoil that led to Nixon's election in 1968 and Warren's retirement.
