Thurgood Marshall: Justice for All

Roger Goldman, Author, David Gallen, With Carroll & Graf Publishers $24.95 (509p) ISBN 978-0-88184-805-2
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)
