More About Cardozo by Andrew L. Kaufman
 
 
 
Overview
Benjamin Nathan Cardozo, unarguably one of the most outstanding judges of the twentieth century, is a man whose name remains prominent and whose contributions to the law remain relevant. This first complete biography of the longtime member and chief judge of the New York Court of Appeals and justice of the Supreme Court of the United States during the turbulent years of the New Deal is a monumental achievement by a distinguished interpreter of constitutional law. In this book, Kaufman interweaves the personal and professional lives of this man to yield a multidimensional whole. Cardozo's family ties to the Jewish community were a significant factor in shaping his life, as was his father's scandalous career - and ultimate disgrace - as a lawyer and judge. Kaufman concentrates, however, on Cardozo's own distinguished career, including twenty-three years in private practice as a tough-minded and skillful lawyer and his classic lectures and writings on the judicial process. From this biography emerges an estimable figure holding to concepts of duty and responsibility, but a person not without frailties and prejudice.
