Justice for All: Earl Warren and the Nation He Made: Jim Newton: 9781594482700: Amazon.com Earl Warren was the most important twentieth century American politician not to achieve the presidency. He spawned a couple of good biographies in the 1960s, a very good one in the 1990s, but now with Jim Newton's Justice for All: Earl Warren and the Nation He Made there is a biography that captures the man and his career in full. Justice for All is very sensibly organized. The first quarter of the book takes Warren from birth through his initial political offices, district attorney and state attorney general. The second quarter treats the gubernatorial years of the most popular governor in California history (and losing vice-presidential candidate in 1948 as well as an unsuccessful presidential aspirant four years later). Then the final half of the book deals with the culmination of his career -- Chief Justice of the most controversial Supreme Court in American history.

He said, “People have been hearing fantastic stories since time began. The problem is, they think life is supposed to be like the stories. Let's look at a few examples.” Kurt Vonnegut explains drama
