KIRKUS REVIEW

An autobiography, written in the hope that his life will reflect ""the thoughts, the fears, the failures and the achievements in a limited segment of my times"" and thus make his era more understandable. Even with the best heart in the world, and some praise-worthy accomplishments, his is not too significant a story and certainly not too interesting. Born in Alabama, Proskauer studied law at Columbia, made a name for himself as a trial lawyer, later as a Justice of the New York State Supreme Court in the twenties, and in later years was the President of the American Jewish Committee engaged in combatting anti-semitism ...Earnest, benevolent, sometimes sentimental, it's still hard to tag a market beyond family, business and professional associates, and friends.
