Wohl’s dual biography of Supreme Court Justice Tom Clark and his son Ramsey Clark is the story of a remarkable father and son as well as a unique chronicle of the major issues of American history between 1945, when the elder Clark was appointed Attorney General, and 1969, when Ramsey left that same office. From civil rights to privacy rights, presidential power to constitutional interpretation—not to mention dealing with J. Edgar Hoover and Richard Nixon—Wohl’s authoritative and deeply researched account lays out the Clarks’ pivotal, and distinct, roles.
