Justice Lewis F. Powell, JrUser Review - Book Verdict
Jeffries (Univ. of Virginia Sch. of Law) has painted a penetrating portrait of the jurist once described, without too much hyperbole, as "the most powerful man in America.'' Jeffries's work, however, is not just another judicial biography, which in itself is virtually a lost art; rather, what we have here is a first-rate biography of a man who just happened to become a Supreme Court justice. As a result, what Jeffries offers the reader is an insight into America itself in the modern era, as the nation faces one crisis after another. At the heart of this superb work, however, is a cautious, conservative lawyer and jurist conscientiously committed to duty and, above all, justice. One may disagree with Powell's politics or his jurisprudence, but one would be hard pressed to find a better treatment of Powell the man and Powell the justice. An excellent work full of detail and short on jargon; highly recommended for all libraries. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/93.-- Stephen K. Shaw, Northwest Nazarene Coll., Nampa, Id.
