Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. : freedom first by Roger L Goldman( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 712 libraries worldwide
Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. sat for thirty-four years on the United States Supreme Court. Throughout his tenure on the Court he meticulously examined the body of Constitutional law - and effectively resuscitated its spirit. A champion of minorities and a spokesman for the politically dispossessed, he passionately defended civil rights and strove to bring the nation's disenfranchised into the mainstream of American life. He advanced the political empowerment of American cities and suburbs. He essentially wrote the modern law of freedom of speech and the press. Justice Brennan's retirement in 1990 occasioned tributes from a host of associates, former law clerks, attorneys, judges, professors, journalists, and friends. The reflections on Brennan in Part I of this volume provide intimate, often humorous glimpses into a generous, warm, open-hearted man who also happened to be an intellectual giant and outstanding jurist. In Part II the jurisprudence of Justice Brennan is comprehensively surveyed and lucidly discussed by author and Constitutional law professor Roger Goldman. With care he examines - and in layman's terms explains - Brennan's positions on the issues central to the justice's career: the First Amendment, the Fourteenth Amendment, civil rights, education, abortion, obscenity, and capital punishment. Eloquent, persuasive, and faithful to his vision, Justice Brennan authored more than a thousand opinions, concurrences, and dissents in the course of his judicial career. Part III of the book offers twelve landmark decisions written by Brennan that show clearly why history will place him beside John Marshall, Louis Brandeis, and Oliver Wendell Holmes as one of the truly great justices in the annals of the United States Supreme Court

Teaching the Bill of Rights by William J Brennan( Book )
2 editions published between 1963 and 1965 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
There are several causes for concern about education in human rights. Conflicting values are playing an increasing role in the international cold war. There is a present danger that, in the anxiety to win the race of space and technology, the U.S. may neglect the struggle of values which is so crucial in winning the war for freedom. There is a rapidly changing relationship between the individual citizen and the government. The possibilities for collision of government activity and individual rights increase as the power of the government itself expands. Examples of individual and mob lawlessness as well as the dangers of biased or irresponsible jury members make clearer the need for every citizen to possess a basic sensitivity to human and civil rights. Secondary school social studies teachers have a major responsibility for instilling an appreciation of human rights in their students. Teachers need to demonstrate the essential flexibility of constitutional guarantees through a knowledge of historical court cases. The most useful materials for the teaching of civil rights are case studies, either reports of actual court cases or hypothetical studies, designed to present unsettled legal questions
