A biography, appreciation and frame of reference of the U. S. Supreme Court justice which is impartial in its presentation. A controversial figure, even to-day, his concept of the law was not only broad but realistic, which passed over precedent in favor of getting to the root of the question, so that his decisions and his stands on various issues make their own contribution to modern legal interpretation. This is his story, from his Alabama days to his appointment, which will have an assured place in law school libraries, on current history and law book shelves. Limited but important.
