Editorial Reviews


A thoroughly researched account of Warren’s extraordinary life that draws on
newly available original sources and provides a comprehensive portrait of his major
contributions to 20th Century justice in the U.S., both on and off the bench. (Howard Tolley, University of Cincinnati)

This book presents the details of Warren’s life and career, including some of his
best known Supreme Court decisions, in an accessible fashion. Persons without legal
training will be able to get a good sense of Warren’s contributions. Likewise, it
responds, in a way that other books on Warren have not, to the ‘conservative’
criticism of the Warren Court that has surfaced in the last decade. (G. Edward White, University of Virginia School of Law)

The book presents additional insight into the work of the Warren Commission. (Wilmington News-Journal)

Moke argues that Earl Warren was one of the central political figures of his time. Warren, who had been attorney general and governor of California, was chief justice from 1953 to 1969; he participated in the civil rights revolution that benefited African Americans, the cases that were meant to enforce the rights of criminally accused persons, and the court-ordered reapportionments of legislatures based on the one-person, one-vote principle. Moke’s thesis is easily proven; Warren is considered so influential in these developments that the period is commonly called the Warren Era. Moke mines previously plundered archives and contributes some new material from the 1930s. . . .Moke makes a contribution, showing how the attorney general who supported the Japanese exclusion of 1942 developed into the author of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954 and how the prosecutor who carelessly disregarded the rights of accused persons in the 1930s grew into the defender of the Miranda warning. But in 1964, Moke notes, Warren failed to 'speak truth to power' as the chairman of the Warren Commission. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers and undergraduate students. (CHOICE)
