Description

'Lively and engaging biography....At a time when progressives and conservatives alike are so sure

of their own premises that America is more polarized than at any time since the Civil War, the

'skeptical humility,' as Budiansky puts it, that Holmes took from the war seems more elusive, and

more urgently needed, than ever.' - Jeffrey Rosen, Washington Post 'Top-notch....Turning the

influential judge's life into a page-turner seems a highly difficult task, but journalist and historian

Budiansky succeeds admirably....An entirely fascinating biography of one of America's most

important legal minds.' - Kirkus (starred review)'With insight and panache....Budiansky paints a

nuanced picture of this exceptionally influential judge....Makes a dry life of the mind into a lively life

of a man, and a very appealing one at that....A winner from start to finish, this is a natural fit for

anyone who enjoys history or biography.' - Library Journal (starred review)'Budiansky's Oliver

Wendell Holmes is a lively, accessible book, retelling the story of its subject's life and work for a

generation that knows Holmes was important but not why.... exciting and well-written' -Â Noah

Feldman, New York Times 'Consistently gripping reading...possessed of a zest and omnivorous

curiosity that reflects the boundless energy of its subject' - Steve Donoghue, Christian Science

Monitor 'The longevity and complexity of Holmes' life and judicial philosophy present a formidable

challenge to a biographer. Stephen Budiansky has met that challenge in distinguished fashion.

Weaving together Holmes's private and public lives with a clarity that reveals what had often

seemed obscure in previous biographies, this book also shows how Holmes' experience as a

thrice-wounded Civil War officer subtly shaped his social and juridical ideas during the next

seventy years.' - James M. McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era
