Melvin Urofsky on Louis D. Brandeis

Watch Melvin Urofsky, author of Louis D. Brandeis, now on sale from Pantheon Books, discuss his “comprehensive and highly readable biography” (Chicago Tribune) during his 9/29 visit to the Brandeis University campus.

“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)
