The man who became the most controversial Supreme Court justice of the past half century breezed into the job almost effortlessly, winning unanimous Senate confirmation quickly after almost no questioning. Since then, Antonin Scalia has, according to this new book, confounded both enemies and friends, infuriating liberals and preventing a conservative majority from coalescing with his vituperative views and "originalist" philosophy. This extensively researched biography by constitutional law specialist and author Bruce Allen Murphy (The Brandeis-Frankfurter Connection) will open a major new round of vigorous debates about outspoken Trenton-born jurist.
