KIRKUS REVIEW

Rabbi Goldman, who over a period of many years has studied, admired, and interviewed Louis Demitz Brandeis here presents an essay on a man of high moral courage and convictions which characterize him as an outstanding American and Jew, and brings together from articles, letters, biographies, addresses, and conversations Brandeis' views on varied matters. With typical involvement in contemporary issues, especially those in essence interlaced with the age-old fight for liberty and social justice which he fought so well, Brandeis gives a great deal of thought to industrialism, to freedom of speech, to the nature of the Jewish people and Zionism. The arrangement of remarks and longer quotes is by alphabetical subject categories, which leads to some repetition. There is a foreword by William Douglas, of praise for the Justice who lost himself in his cause, and a bibliography. Brandeis' reasoned, highly logical utterances on business and spirit alike may hold interest for businessmen, lawyers, teachers, the religious and admirers alike. Good PL material.
