Editorial Reviews

Review

"Polly J. Price offers an intimate look into the brilliant legal mind of Judge Richard S. Arnold. A key witness to, and strong supporter of, the civil rights movement, Judge Arnold sat on the bench during a tumultuous time in our nation's history. Price carefully examines Arnold's personal papers to reveal his motives, deliberations, and integrity in the face of great moral debate.... [This book] provides fascinating insight into the inner workings of the federal judiciary as reflected by the life of one of its most exceptional and courageous members" --Former President Bill Clinton

Format: Hardcover
JUDGE RICHARD S. ARNOLD: A LEGACY OF JUSTICE ON THE FEDERAL BENCH provides a fine biography of the legacy and achievements of a justice who had the respect of a wide circuit of Supreme Court Justices who attested to his fairness, judicial restraint, and influential opinions. JUDGE RICHARD S. ARNOLD comes from a law professor who had served as his law clerk, so it offers both a personal and researched survey of his life and times in a fine coverage especially recommended for college-level legal and political science libraries.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By K. Bryant on June 7, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
What makes this biography so enjoyable is that one is shown the flaws as well as the wonders of a very real, very human person. Although it is clear in her writing that Ms. Price admires Judge Arnold, she does not allow this to color her presentation of the facts of his life. Ms. Price's writing style makes what could be just another boring biography into an enjoyable foray into a very influential figure in American politics.

This is a great read. Richard was an extremely well respected 20th century judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals. This book does a great job of not only detailing Judge Arnold's life but also explaining the role and importance of the U.S. Court of Appeals. Any lawyer or aspiring lawyer in particular will enjoy this book.
