Robert H. Jackson was Associate Justice of the Supreme Court from 1941 to his death in 1954. A major figure in American legal history, he also served as Solicitor General and Attorney General of the United States, and the American Chief Prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trial. Author of the best-selling
The Nurnberg Case, he is considered by many to be the finest writer ever to sit on the Supreme Court. John Q. Barrett is Professor of Law at St. John's University in New York and Elizabeth S. Lenna Fellow at the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown, New York. He formerly served in the office of
Independent Counsel Lawrence Walsh investigating Iran-Contra, and in the U.S. Department of Justice. He discovered the manuscript of That Man among Jackson's papers while researching a biography of the Justice. William E. Leuchtenburg, the leading historian of Roosevelt and the New Deal, has
contributed a foreword discussing Jackson's relationship with FDR.
