In "Fighting Injustice", famed trial attorney Michael E. Tigar describes the battles - both inside and outside the courtroom - that have made him one of the world's most courageous defenders of personal freedoms. From his days as a student leader at the University of California at Berkeley in the early 1960s to his representation of Terry Nichols, the Oklahoma City federal building bombing conspirator, Tigar has championed personal rights and freedoms and has come to the aid of countless defendants in need of representation, regardless of the unpopularity of the cause.

Page 5 - A fiery soul, which, working out its way, Fretted the pigmy body to decay, And o'er-informed the tenement of clay. A daring pilot in extremity; Pleased with the danger, when the waves went high He sought the storms; but, for a calm unfit, Would steer too nigh the sands to boast his wit.
