Riassunto: A history of judicial greatness, perfect for readers of any background! Any effort to understand how law works has to take seriously its main players - judges. Like any performance, judging should be evaluated by reference to those who are its best exponents. Not surprisingly, the debate about what makes a 'great judge' is as heated and inconclusive as the debate about the purpose and nature of law itself. History shows that those who are generally considered to be candidates for a judicial hall of fame are game changers who oblige us to rethink what it is to be a good judge. So the best of judges must tread a thin line between modesty and hubris; they must be neither mere umpires nor demigods. The eight judges showcased in this book demonstrate that, if the test of good judging is not about getting it right, but doing it well, then the measure of great judging is about setting new standards for what counts as judging well.

Descrizione del libro: This book showcases eight judges that the author argues exemplify judicial greatness and looks at what role they play in law and society. It does not define what makes a great judge but postulates qualities of judges who in their judicial tenures have shown vision and inventiveness that, combined with the courage of their convictions, has fundamentally influenced the impact of law on society.
