Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Life

We rated this book:


Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to make history as cases still command the attention of the Supreme Court, but this biography covers the beginning of her life up to last year in 2019. As an unauthorized biography, the author still, however, had access to her personal files from her ACLU years and also personal interviews with the subject, family members, and associates. Woven together is an iconic legend of how a young Brooklyn girl, daughter of an immigrant father and of Jewish background could command the role she has played in making legal history. This hefty book of more than seven hundred pages portrays the history of an outstanding legal expert known and applauded for her advancement of gender equality and civil rights. It is an American story that should be read as an example of what is possible when one has family support, internal grit, moral certainty, and scholarly expertise. Read about Ginsburg’s role in the ACLU, look into case histories, watch her as a college professor, look at the political wrangling, and examine her performance as a judge in the Appeals Courts and as a Supreme Court Justice. This is a wondrous tale, recorded well, that resounds as an American epic.
