Tinsley E. Yarbrough

Harry A. Blackmun : the outsider justice, Oxford University Press, 2008

KF8745.B555Y37 2008

This is an account of one of the most outspoken and complicated figures on the modern Supreme Court. Justice Blackmun served on the Court from 1970-1994.  He considered himself one of society's outsiders, someone who did not "belong." This instilled a deep empathy for society's most vulnerable outsiders - women faced with unwanted pregnancies (he was the author of the majority opinion in Roe v. Wade), homosexuals subjected to archaic laws, and ultimately, death-row inmates - all reflected in his judicial opinions.

Robert F. Cochran, Jr., Editor
