   schema:description "This exhaustive, compelling account assesses the life of one of the most important judges ever to sit on a federal district court bench. Kemerer (The Educator's Guide to Texas School Law), a professor at North Texas State University, writes of how Justice's father, a Texas Depression-era lawyer, was often paid by clients with watermelons and peas. This, plus Justice's memories of poor people hanging perilously from boxcars and begging for food and work, shows how his ironclad liberal ideals and his love of the law were forged. The book is divided into two parts. The first deals with Justice's life before he became a federal judge in 1968. The second and longer part deals with the 72-year-old jurist's landmark decisions on school desegregation, voter discrimination and prison reform. Kemerer also gives critical insights into such legendary Texas figures as Lyndon Johnson, John Tower and John Connolly."@en ;
