Abe Fortas: A Biography (Google eBook)
Fortas (1910-1982) was a New Dealer, a sub-cabinet official, the founder of an eminent Washington law firm, a close adviser to Lyndon Johnson, and a Supreme Court justice. Nominated by Johnson to be Chief Justice, he was rejected by Congress and resigned from the Court early in the Nixon administration under a cloud of impending scandal. Kalman (history, U. of California, Santa Barbara) tells his story clearly, thoroughly, and insightfully. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
