Editorial Reviews

Review


"Tushnet has produced an account of what went on within the Supreme Court during Marshall's tenure that is not only well researched but also well written. Readers without a legal background will appreciate his very clear explanations of arcane doctrines...Tushnet offers readers extremely informative accounts of the court's internal arguments over civil rights and the death penalty."--America Historical Review


"By sticking to constitutional law issues...Tushnet is able to tie the pieces together into a fascinating and worthwhile journey through the life of the nation's first African American Supreme Court justice. Highly recommended for both general and academic readers at any level interested in law, political science, history, ethnic studies, or cultural studies."--Choice


"Weaving a narrative mainly from the public records of Marshall and other justices, interviews with colleagues and his own personal recollections as a clerk for Justice Marshall, Tushnet has delivered another impressive account of Justice Marshall's influence on the making ofcivil rights and constitutional law. It is a book deserving of a close reading by scholars of Supreme Court jurisprudence."--Ihe Law and Politics Book Review


"Tushent boldly and honestly portrays Marshall's constitutional jurisprudence...[a] fine study of Marshall."--Los Angeles Daily Journal


"Making Constitutional Law stands as a learned tribute to a man who never forgot what the civil rights struggle was about and the centrality of the Constitution in that struggle.Marshall truly fought the good fight, and departed with his head high. Professor Tushnet has reminded us why we are so proud of this man in whom so many of us placed our faith."--Nathaniel R. Jones, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit
