A full-scale portrait of the early twentieth-century Supreme Court justice seeks to distinguish his personal life from his achievements as a reformer and jurist, offering additional insight into his role in the development of pro bono legal services, the creations of the Federal Reserve Act and other key legislations, and his contributions to American-Jewish affairs as a practicing Zionist.

“Utterly fascinating . . . Urofsky’s remarkable book has innumerable passages that amaze . . . [It] captures the sweep and the details of that life with what has to be called devotion . . . his achievement is remarkable.”
—Anthony Lewis, The New York Review of Books
“A commendably exhaustive work.”
—The New Yorker
“Melvin Urofsky’s lapidary new biography is a rich study of a remarkable life.”
"Melvin Urofsky's comprehensive and highly readable biography of Louis Brandeis conveys the vast scope of Brandeis's fascinating life with energy, verve and immediacy. . . In Urofsky's deft hands, Brandeis comes alive in these pages as a passionate progressive who dedicated his life and career to improving the lives of others and preserving the most fundamental American values."
—Geoffrey R. Stone, Chicago Tribune
"Urofsky has spent much of his professional life examining and writing about one or another aspect of this complex and multifaceted jurist. [His biography of Brandeis] represents the pinnacle of Urofsky's accumulated work. It will likely stand as the definitive Brandeis biography for many years."
—Harvey A. Silverglate, The Boston Globe
"[A] monumental, authoritative and appreciative biography of the man Franklin D. Roosevelt called "Isaiah" . . . [Urofsky] demonstrates, deploying a Brandeisan array of factual material, why Brandeis still matters, nearly 70 years after his death."
—Alan M. Dershowitz, New York Times Book Review
"A comprehensive biography of an American legal giant. . . likely to become the standard biography. . .An authoritative, impressive assessment of a man whose legal reasoning continues to influence our republic."
—Kirkus Reviews (starred)
