Bronner’s “Battle for Justice”

The passing of Judge Robert Bork reminds me to recommend an excellent account of his unsuccessful confirmation hearings: Ethan Bronner’s Battle for Justice; How the Bork Nomination Shook America, which you can order as a used book from Amazon for a penny. The Bork hearings continue to influence judicial nominations and confirmations a quarter-century later, and Bronner’s book is the most helpful guide I know on what happened.
