Overview

Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Biography
The definitive biography of Clarence Darrow, the brilliant, idiosyncratic lawyer who defended John Scopes in the Monkey Trial and gave voice to the populist masses at the turn of the twentieth century, thus changing American law forever.

Amidst the tumult of the industrial age and the progressive era, Clarence Darrow became America s greatest defense attorney, successfully championing poor workers, blacks, and social and political outcasts, against big business, fundamentalist religion, Jim Crow, and the US government. His courtroom style a mixture of passion, improvisation, charm, and tactical genius won miraculous reprieves for men doomed to hang. In Farrell s hands, Darrow is a Byronic figure, a renegade whose commitment to liberty led him to heroic courtroom battles and legal trickery alike.
