Three experts draw back the curtain of the United States Supreme Court to provide an insider’s look at one of the most influential and distinguished justices of the 20th century: William J. Brennan, Jr. Drawing on previously private case histories and personal interviews, this program examines not only Brennan’s life but the strategy behind the major legal battles of the past half century, from Roe v. Wade to the death penalty to the right to privacy, in a riveting look at one of the Court’s most progressive eras.
