Praise

The critics welcome Jane Sherron De Hart’s RUTH BADER GINSBURG

“De Hart dynamically devotes more than 500 pages to the amazing life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg … Telling anecdotes skillfully illuminate Ginsburg’s devotion to her family and her wonderfully supportive late husband, her long-standing friendships with an array of public figures, her love of opera, and her humorous wit. This extensively documented account, incorporating more than 100 pages of chapter notes and a bibliography that cites hundreds of resources, is also quite engaging and very easy to read. Expect high demand.”

–Kathleen McBroom, Booklist (starred review)

“Laudatory … De Hart’s great strength is her ability to explain Ginsburg’s cases and the legal strategies she employed … an insightful, fascinating, and admiring biography of one of America’s most extraordinary jurists.”

Publishers Weekly

“The first comprehensive biography of Ruth Bader Ginsburg . . . De Hart describes in absorbing detail the behind-the-scenes campaign to obtain her appointment to the Supreme Court engineered by her devoted husband Martin Ginsburg . . . De Hart excels in explaining the majority opinions, and later the dissents, in which she participated with remarkable clarity, illuminating the issues, the competing positions, and the significance of each in language easily grasped by readers with no legal training . . . A monumental biography.”
