Summary "The sordid controversies of litigants, " Benjamin Cardozo once said, are "the stuff from which great and shirting truths will ultimately be shaped." As one of America's most influential judges, first on New York State's (Court of Appeals and then on the United States Supreme Court, Cardozo (1870-1938) oversaw this transformation daily. How he arrived at his rulings, with their far-reaching consequences, becomes clear in this book, the first to explore the connections between Benjamin Cardozo's life and his jurisprudence.
