Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Fried, Ronald Reagan's Solicitor General between 1985 and 1989, offers a personal look at the decisions and conflicts within the Justice Department as he sought to implement Reagan's judicial reforms. Fried describes how the Reagan revolution attempted to give the president a strong hand in governing the nation without judicial interference and, moreover, sought to resolve social and equality issues with the least possible government and judicial involvement. He discusses the legal and philosophical issues behind some of the most important political and social cases of the 1980s, e.g., abortion, affirmative action, capital punishment, the Iran- contra case, and executive authority. As solicitor generals rarely comment on their recent activities, Fried provides unique and excellent insights into government power within the executive branch. Recommended for general and legal collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/91.
