              Battle For The Marble Palace: Abe Fortas, Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and the Forging of the Modern Supreme Court
               

              Battle For The Marble Palace: Abe Fortas, Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and the Forging of the Modern Supreme Court (EPUB ebook)

              By Bobelian, Michael

              1968 was a particularly tumultuous year in American history. The escalating war in Vietnam, the riots during the Democratic Convention, and the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy left a scar on the national consciousness. But one great battle that took pl...ace during this time is barely recalled. The nomination of Abe Fortas for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court launched an all-out cultural war that would determine the course of major court cases for years to come. Award-winning judicial journalist and Supreme Court reporter Michael Bobelian brings us right into the halls where this fierce battle raged, pitting Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic Party against Richard Nixon and the GOP in a fight that ended in the defamation of Fortas, the first Jew ever nominated for the highest judicial office. Written in vivid detail, the narrative unfolds in a series of dramatic vignettes, from the landmark ruling of Brown vs. Board of Education to the chaos on the floor of the Democratic Convention. Readers are given a behind the scenes look at the camaraderie among the retiring Chief Justice Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson, and Fortas-and will witness, with them, the rise of Richard Nixon as the fate of the liberal court is decided.

              1968 was a particularly tumultuous year in our country's history. The escalating war in Vietnam, the riots during the Democratic Convention, and the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy left a scar on our national consciousness that has yet to heal. But one gre...at battle that took place during this time is barely recalled. The nomination of Abe Fortas for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court launched an all-out cultural and societal war that would determine the course of major court cases for years to come. Award-winning judicial journalist and Supreme Court reporter for Forbes Magazine Michael Bobelian brings us right into the halls where this fierce battle raged, pitting Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic Party on one side, and Richard Nixon and the GOP on the other. A battle that ended in filibuster, defamation, and disgrace of Fortas, the first Jew to ever be nominated for the highest office in our judicial system. Written in vivid, colorful detail, the narrative unfolds in a series of dramatic vignettes, from the chaos on the floor of the Democratic Convention, to the landmark ruling of Brown vs. Board of Education. We are given a behind the scenes look at the camaraderie among the retiring Chief Justice Earl Warren, Lyndon Johnson and Fortas, and witness, with them, the rise of Richard Nixon as the fate of the liberal court is decided. BATTLE FOR THE MARBLE PALACE is a gripping account of a little known, but crucial, event in our nation's history, as well as a portrait of the man-in-the-middle of it all, whose career was thrown into the balance yet maintained his loyalty throughout weeks of grueling interrogations and accusations. This book will draw an audience well beyond court junkies and political buffs, and appeal to those who enjoy House of Cards, The West Wing, the books of Jeffrey Toobin and David Gergen, and any number of fictional and non-fictional glimpses into the inner-workings of our complex political system, where the parallel bet
