Father, son, and constitution : how Justice Tom Clark and Attorney General Ramsey Clark shaped American democracy by Alexander Wohl( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Alexander Wohl shows, Tom and Ramsey Clark had a profound impact on American law and society. For nearly three quarters of a century, they influence presidents, policies, and legal rulings, during careers that tracked closely with some of the most significant and controversial episodes in modern American history. Highlighting their consistent effort to balance individual liberties with government power, Wohl examines how their work reflected tensions that continue to resonate in today's legal and policy battles ... A unique approach for understanding our nation's history during the second half of the twentieth century, Wohl's study addresses such salient issues as civil rights, free speech, government surveillance and rights of privacy, presidential power, and the role of judges in interpreting the Constitution. The Clarks' lives and careers also offer a veritable who's who of twentieth-century American law and policy"--Jacket
