KIRKUS REVIEW

An extremely useful book, and, surprisingly enough, an essentially readable one, I say surprisingly, because the excerpts from Justice Brandeis' writings as lawyer, as Justice of the Supreme Court, are arranged under alphabetical subject heads. Yet one can read right along with keenest interest in the revelation of a man, a mind, a spirit, a vision, almost unequalled. His philosophy on business, on democracy, on trusts, on capital, on Zionism -- one sees a man who has always looked ahead, never thought in terms only of the moment, visioned problems in terms of the individual, the State, the Nation. The timeliness of his viewpoint comes out incessantly-and always in the last analysis his confidence in the people.
