Description
 
Sandra Day O’Connor, America’s first woman justice, became the axis on which the Supreme Court turned. She was called the most powerful woman in America. Then, just one year short of a quarter century on the bench, she announced her retirement. Here, Biskupic examines O’Connor’s remarkable career, providing an in-depth account of her transformation from tentative jurist to confident architect of American law. The portrait that emerges is of a complex & multifaceted woman. Her tie-breaking opinions on issues such as abortion rights, affirmative action, the death penalty, & religious freedom will have a lasting effect. “A vivid, astute depiction of the woman in the black robe & a unique look inside the exclusive, famously secretive High Court.” Photos.
