About the Author

Clarence Darrow (1857-1938) had one of the most influential legal careers in American history. He is renowned for his landmark defenses in the 1924 Leopold/Loeb thrill-killing case and the so-called Scopes monkey trial of 1925, where the debate over evolution first surged to national attention. He was notable as a friend to the underdog, a leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union, and a distinguished speaker on agnosticism, liberalism, and free thought.


Edward J. Larson is Russell Professor of American History and Talmadge Chair of Law at the University of Georgia. He is the author of six books, including Evolution: The Remarkable History of a Scientific Theory, published by Modern Library, and Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America’s Continuing Debate Over Science and Religion, for which he won the 1998 Pulitzer Prize in History.

Jack Marshall is an adjunct professor of legal ethics at American University and the president and founder of ProEthics, Ltd., which conducts ethics seminars across the country. His articles and commentary have appeared in The Federal Lawyer, Everyday Law, Trial, and The Weekly Standard.

It's the words of Clarence Darrow...so if you're a fan you can't go wrong, though I feel the editing of this collection is a bit off...I don't feel the most signifigant parts of his speeches/writing are included but overall not bad.

If you have never read much by or about Clarence Darrow, this is a very good place to start. Broken up into easily digestible segments, fascinating philosophic analyses by Darrow.
