From Library Journal:

The life of Thurgood Marshall, retired associate justice of the United States Supreme Court is, in large measure, the story of 20th-century America, particularly from the standpoint of the nation's effort to live up to its founding principles of liberty and equality. Marshall's life, especially his life in the law both before and after he joined the Court in 1967, was spent prodding, challenging, and forcing the nation to approximate these principles more closely. This important work, ably chronicled by Davis and Clark, is the second impressive treatment this year of the life and legacy of one of this century's most influential legal and political figures. But unlike Roger Goldman and David Gallen's Thurgood Marshall: Justice for All ( LJ 7/92), it treats Marshall's crucial contributions not only while on the Court but before. Highly recommended.

From Publishers Weekly:

Though a competent survey of retired Supreme Court justice Thurgood Marshall's career, this book offers neither great insight into the jurist's private life nor close analysis of his public work. The authors, both Washington, D.C.-based journalists (Clark was once a Supreme Court page), apparently could not speak with Marshall himself; they interviewed only a few of his close associates and rely significantly on secondary sources. Marshall's upbringing in Baltimore and his civil rights legislation--his work for the NAACP, his handling of the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education --receive more thorough treatment in Richard Kluger's Simple Justice. While a more careful assessment of Marshall's 24 years as the sole African American on the Supreme Court must wait for another biographer, this book is a useful introduction.
