Overview

Thurgood Marshall: Justice For All explores the life and career of the man who did more to improve the conditions of the underdog in American society than any other attorney in the twentieth century. As counsel for the NAACP Legal and Education Fund for a quarter of a century, Marshall fought ceaselessly against segregation and spoke eloquently for the civil rights of all Americans. Winning twenty-nine of the thirty-two cases he argued before the Supreme Court, he established a record that to this day stands unparalleled in American judicial history. In 1967 he joined that court and served as an associate justice until his retirement in 1991. The first section of Thurgood Marshall: Justice For All offers nine recollections of Marshall as a man, an attorney, a federal judge and a justice. Seven of these pieces were written by people who either clerked for Marshall or worked closely with him at the NAACP or United States Supreme Court. Together they comprise an intimately detailed portrait of the associate justice whose wit has become as famous as his wisdom. In the second section of the book, a comprehensive essay by Roger Goldman, a professor of constitutional law, examines Marshall's jurisprudence and philosophy as an associate Supreme Court justice. It focuses on those issues that Marshall most passionately espoused--civil rights, the First Amendment, the Fourth Amendment, education, poverty. The third section of the book, a selection of the opinions and dissents that Marshall himself wrote as an associate justice on the Supreme Court, illuminates Marshall's particular sensitivity to the issues discussed by Goldman in his essay. It pointedly illustrates too Marshall's compassion, intelligence, incisiveness, and genius.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Compiled by Gallen, a New York City attorney and author of Malcolm X , this comprehensive study of the career of Thurgood Marshall (born 1908), the first African American to serve on the Supreme Court (1967-1991), is essential reading for lawyers and scholars. Goldman, a professor of law at Saint Louis University School of Law, examines Associate Justice Marshall's jurisprudence in a spirited essay that conveys the depth of Marshall's passionate commitment to civil rights. Also included are nine personal recollections by colleagues and others, who testify to the former justice's biting wit and fierce integrity. There is an excerpt from Randall Bland's 1973 biography, Private Pressure on Public Law , covering Marshall's tenure as chief counsel for the NAACP (1938-1961), during which he led the team that argued for desegregation in Brown vs. the Board of Education. A closing chapter of selections from Marshall's opinions and dissents demonstrates the skill and perseverance he utilized to protect the powerless. (July)
Library Journal
This timely work is an impressive and necessary collection of original material, previously published personal recollections, and a representative sampling of opinions and dissents, all, of course, concerning the career and legacy of one of the most important figures in the history of American law. Marshall helped to change America, and this fine study of his legal career and jurisprudence is a fitting testament to his unflagging pursuit of social and legal justice. Wisely, this collection is not hagiographic; it offers proper perspective and accurate analysis, not idol worship. Particularly impressive is the original essay that analyzes Marshall's legal and constitutional jurisprudence, especially in regard to his equal protection analysis. Strongly recommended for all libraries.-- Stephen K. Shaw, Northwest Nazarene Coll., Nampa, Id.
