That man : an insider's portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt by Robert H Jackson( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 2,587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert H. Jackson was one of the giants of the Roosevelt era: an Attorney General, a still-revered Supreme Court Justice, and, not least important, one of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's close friends and advisers. His intimate memoir of FDR, written in the early 1950s before Jackson's untimely death, has remained unpublished for fifty years. Here is that newly discovered memoir. Written with skill and grace, this is truly a unique account of the personality, conduct, greatness of character, and common humanity of "that man in the White House," as outraged conservatives called FDR. 'That Man' is not simply a valuable historical document, but an engaging and insightful look at one of the most remarkable men in American history. In reading this memoir, we gain not only a new appreciation for Roosevelt but also admiration for Jackson, who emerges as both a public servant of great integrity and skill and a wry, shrewd, and fair-minded observer of politics at the highest level."--Jacket

Robert H. Jackson, published this book while serving as Attorney General of the United States. In it, Jackson traces the rise and fall of the influence of the Supreme Court of the United States, of its changes in make-up, in numbers, of its reversal of itself, of the dangers of judicial supremacy, when it closed its eyes to ""peaceful and democratic conciliation of our social and economic conflicts"". He then examines the response--President Franklin Roosevelt's 1937 effort to resist judicial expansionism through "Court-packing" legislation

Dispassionate justice : a synthesis of the judicial opinions of Robert H. Jackson by Glendon A Schubert( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dispassionate Justice," Glendon Schubert's synthesis of the judicial opinions of Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson, is a welcome addition to scholarship, filled with detailed knowledge of Jackson and his fellow justices, and of the historical period from the late 'thirties until the emergence of the Warren Court. This distinguished work of scholarship should become required reading for students of the 1940-1956 period in constitutional jurisprudence. The introductory chapter focuses on Robert Jackson's personality and the impact of his legal and political career on his judicial decisions. It urges strongly that Jackson's background as a small-town, upstate New York lawyer, a lifelong Democrat in a Republican area, as a man who learned law in a law firm rather than going to college and law school, fashioned him into a spokesperson for the virtues of nineteenth-century liberalism and individualism. Subsequent chapters illustrate clearly how Jackson was torn during his tenure on the bench between the perspective of small-town individualism and the view that federal regulation was both necessary and appropriate. Decisions examined include issues of freedom of speech, establishment of religion, procedural rights, the establishment clause, property rights, bureaucracy, the role of stare decisis in judicial decision making, the relationship between the federal and state judiciaries, and the nature of advocacy
