List price: $14.95
He is black and conservative. He suffered the indignities of segregation but spurned the civil rights activism that ignited from its abuses. He was a beneficiary of affirmative action but now attacks it as a blight on black achievement. He was born poor but espouses the conservative politics of the wealthy elite. He is the Court's only racial minority but refuses to vote for perceived interests of racial minorities. Judging Thomas unravels the mystery of one of the most controversial and fascinating public figures on the American stage today.
