Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The importance of family and friends to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. is apparent in this very readable biography of his life in and out of the courtroom. The first general biography on Holmes since Silas Bent's Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes: A Biography (Vanguard, 1932; AMS Pr., 1969. repr.) and Catherine Drinker Bowen's Yankee From Olympus (o.p.), this covers his early life, his action in the Civil War, law school and his early career, nearly 20 years as justice and then chief justice of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts, and, finally, 30 years as a U.S. Supreme Court Justice. Excerpts from his letters, poetry, writings, and court opinions demonstrate his personal feelings as well as his direct and innovative political opinions. David Burton's Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (Krieger, 1979) and Felix Frankfurter's Mr. Justice Holmes and the Supreme Court (o.p.) and Mark Howe's uncompleted multivolume Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes (o.p.) focused mainly on analysis of his writings and court opinions. This new work will appeal to the general reader as well as the scholar. For academic and public libraries.
