Reviews

"Both very good and very useful. White presents a clear biography of the Supreme Court justice.... White creates a vivid portrait of this scholarly and philosophical legal thinker while including rich details of his intellectual but reserved home life.... More than that, readers will absorb a
history of the development of legal education, the growth of the Supreme Court, and how law unfolds as a study and a discipline.... Quotations from Holmes's writing and picture captions with further details add to the story.... Excellent."--Kirkus Reviews
"It is particularly impressive that professor G. Edward White has been able to tell the story of this complex man without being superficial."--New York Law Journal
