Brennan, Jr. : freedom firstBiographyJustice William J. Brennan, Jr. sat for thirty-four years on the United States Supreme Court. Throughout his tenure on the Court he meticulously examined the body of Constitutional law - and effectively resuscitated its spirit. A champion of minorities and a spokesman for the politically dispossessed, he passionately defended civil rights and strove to bring the nation's disenfranchised into the mainstream of American life. He advanced the political empowerment of American cities and suburbs. He essentially wrote the modern law of freedom of speech and the press. Justice Brennan's retirement in 1990 occasioned tributes from a host of associates, former law clerks, attorneys, judges, professors, journalists, and friends. The reflections on Brennan in Part I of this volume provide intimate, often humorous glimpses into a generous, warm, open-hearted man who also happened to be an intellectual giant and outstanding jurist. In Part II the jurisprudence of Justice Brennan is comprehensively surveyed and lucidly discussed by author and Constitutional law professor Roger Goldman. With care he examines - and in layman's terms explains - Brennan's positions on the issues central to the justice's career: the First Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment, civil rights, education, abortion, obscenity, and capital punishment. Eloquent, persuasive, and faithful to his vision, Justice Brennan authored more than a thousand opinions, concurrences, and dissents in the course of his judicial career. Part III of the book offers twelve landmark decisions written by Brennan that show clearly why history will place him beside John Marshall, Louis Brandeis, and Oliver Wendell Holmes as one of the truly great justices in the annals of the United States Supreme Court3401ocn017354316book19890.84Haar, Charles MLandmark justice : the influence of William J.

WatMr. Justice Brennan and freedom of expressionOn July 21, 1990, Associate Justice William J. Brennan, Jr., announced his resignation from the nation's highest court. The judicial career of the man who Wat Hopkins considers the United States Supreme Court's premier protector of expression came to an end. Hopkins examines the body of Justice Brennan's free expression jurisprudence and shows how Justice Brennan's theory of free expression was built on the metaphor of a marketplace of ideas.''Hopkins' analysis is based primarily on an examination of the significant free expression cases during Brennan's thirty-four year term. He concludes that Brennan developed a philosophically sound First Amendment theory that was accepted by the Court, but is not being applied today with the force necessary to make it truly effective. This detailed examination of Justice Brennan's jurisprudence is a noteworthy addition to legal history and scholarship+-+581884027532411612ocn044954214file19970.50Marion, David EThe jurisprudence of Justice William J.

His books and articles have illuminated the process by which constitutional law has been made and shaped, from the New Deal period to the present. His work has focused on the human aspect of the law, on the ordinary people who bring cases to the Supreme Court, and the impact of the Court's decisions on their lives and the lives of all Americans. Now he gives us a brilliant and insightful book about two notable Supreme Court justices, William Brennan and William Rehnquist, and how their differing visions of the Constitution have affected the functioning of the law on issues that divide the Court and the country. We see Brennan: Democrat, son of an Irish Catholic labor leader, appointed to the Court by Eisenhower, believing in a "living Constitution" and the "legitimate expectations of every person to innate human dignity." And Rehnquist: raised in a conservative midwestern suburb, Goldwater activist, appointed by Nixon, vowing to "reverse the liberal excesses of the Warren Court." We see these two men serving together for two momentous decades, the leaders of the Court's liberal and conservative factions. We come to know them, their characters, their personalities, their beliefs. We explore the roots of their conflicting values: Brennan's vision of "human dignity" and Rehnquist's commitment to "judicial deference." And we watch as they battle for the votes of the Court's moderates in a hundred cases that deal with every major issue from religion and capital punishment to affirmative action and abortion. In a book that fluently combines history and biography, drama and explication, Peter Irons allows us to grasp in fascinating, eye-opening detail the way the law works in the life of America9563ocn505420635book20100.26Stern, SethJustice Brennan : liberal championBiography"[This book] is a sweeping and revealing insider look at court history and the life of William Brennan, champion of free speech and public access to information, and widely considered the most influential Supreme Court justice of the twentieth century."--Jacket+-+00749629057582ocn035364811book19970.47Reason and passion : Justice Brennan's enduring influenceIn this collection, many of Justice Brennan's most distinguished colleagues and observers offer tribute to his far-reaching legacy.
