Book description

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a legal icon. In more than four decades as a lawyer, professor, appellate judge, and Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court, Ginsburg influenced the law and society in real and permanent ways. This book chronicles and evaluates the remarkable achievements Ruth Bader Ginsburg made over the last half-century. Including chapters written by prominent court-watchers and leading scholars from law, political science, and history, the book offers diverse perspectives on an array of doctrinal areas and different periods in Ginsburg's career. Together, these perspectives document the impressive legacy of one of the most important figures in modern law. This updated second edition features a new foreword from Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer and a new introduction from the editor Scott Dodson.


'Scott Dodson presents leading scholars’ expert perspectives on Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s historic legacy and long-term agenda, both of which continue even after she is gone. Dodson’s anthology details how RBG’s pathmarking legal years shaped this country’s policies and laws. Her dedication and forward-thinking will be memorialized in these pages for future generations to learn from.'
