Throughout America's history, lawyers with a crusading zeal have, through their moral stance, intellectual integrity, and sheer brilliance, made use of the law to fight social injustice. In short biographical chapters, the authors tell the stories of ten of these lawyers. Some are well known: Thurgood Marshall; William Kunstler; Louis Brandeis; Morris Dees; Clarence Darrow; and Ralph Nader. Others are not so well known, but deserve to be. All are fascinating and influential attorneys who rose to the top of their profession, and this examination of their lives and careers illuminates key issues in American history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. An annotated bibliography, a chronology of the person's life and work, and helpful tables of cases detailing their most prominent cases accompany each chapter.

As the most current substantive, and serious look at the Bush Presidency available to students today, this timely collection of original perspectives is the how-they're-doing-so-far report you have been waiting for. Bush's presidency is intriguing for many reasons. The unusual circumstances of Bush's ascent to the presidency, the political success of his campaigns to cut taxes, the horrific events of 9/11, the waning of the economic boom, corporate corruption, and the rise of a unilateral and muscular approach to U. S. foreign policy are just some of the distinguishing factors discussed in this balanced collection.
