Editorial Reviews

Review

"White's splendid new biography helps us to understand better Warren's remarkable career from district attorney of Alameda County, California, to Chief Justice of the United States....[It] establishes White as one of our premier legal historians."--American Bar Foundation Research Journal

"The first significant legal biography of Chief Justice Earl Warren."--Stanford Law Review

"White's analysis is penetrating, his literary style engaging."--Political Science Quarterly

"A fascinating book about a towering figure of our time."--Virginia Quarterly Review

"A serious and fascinating study, relating Warren the man and Warren the judge, and throwing fresh light on an amazing period in the Supreme Court's history."--Anthony Lewis, The New York Times Book Review

"Seems likely to serve for some time as the standard against which other biographies of the controversial chief justice will be measured."--American Historical Review

"An excellent introduction to a major figure in twentieth-century American history...solid, informative, and perceptive."--Journal of American History

"Mr. White has written an exciting biography of this great man and provided...a wealth of material for the continuing debate over Warren's role."--The New Republic

"A first-rate biography."--Journal of Southern History

"The most important book about the law published this year. Both a fresh exploration of one of the most astonishing political metamorphoses in American history, and a profound but readable explanation of some of the main problems of constitutional law and jurisprudence."--Baltimore Sun
