Jane Sherron de Hart - Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Life

Upcoming Event
Friday, October 19, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In the first comprehensive biography of the 107th Supreme Court Justice, De Hart draws on extensive interviews with Ginsburg, her family, friends, and associates. A professor emerita of history at the University of California, Santa Barbara, De Hart gives a revelatory portrait of Ginsburg at all stages of her life, from her upbringing in Brooklyn to her stellar academic career as a student and as one of the country’s few female law professors—and the first to be tenured at Columbia Law School—to her judicial work on the U.S. Court of Appeals and, since 1993, on the Supreme Court. De Hart, who devoted fifteen years to this book, identifies key ideas and experiences that shaped Ginsburg’s thinking, including her Jewish background, her mother’s courage and independence, her leadership of the ACLU women’s rights project, and much, much more.
