Overview

Justice for All: Earl Warren and the Nation He Made by Jim Newton

One of the most acclaimed and best political biographies of its time, Justice for All is a monumental work dedicated to a complicated and principled figure that will become a seminal work of twentieth-century U.S. history.

In Justice for All, Jim Newton, an award-winning journalist for the Los Angeles Times, brings readers the first truly comprehensive consideration of Earl Warren, the politician-turned-Chief Justice who refashioned the place of the court in American life through landmark Supreme Court cases whose names have entered the common parlance -- Brown v. Board of Education, Griswold v. Connecticut, Miranda v. Arizona, to name just a few. Drawing on unmatched access to government, academic, and private documents pertaining to Warren's life and career, Newton explores a fascinating angle of U.S. Supreme Court history while illuminating both the public and the private Warren.

Mr. Newton's book is of course a detailed history of Chief Justice Warren's ascent to the High Court, and the CJ's influence on American legal history. I thoroughly enjoyed the fruit of Mr. Newton's labors. A main theme: a Justice's jurisprudence cannot be divorced from life experience.
