Dramatically narrated case histories from Justice Ginsburg's stellar career are interwoven with an account of RBG's life - childhood, family, beliefs, education, marriage, legal and judicial career, children, and achievements - and her many faceted personality is captured. The cases described, many involving young people, demonstrate her passionate concern for gender equality, fairness, and our constitutional rights. Notes, bibliography, index.
