Ginsburg Speaks

by David Meyer

Legal scholar Jeffrey Rosen presents decades of interviews with Ruth Bader Ginsburg highlighting her brilliance and fortitude.

Author Jeffrey Rosen interviewed Ruth Bader Ginsburg throughout her career. A law professor at George Washington University, an Atlantic contributing writer, and president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, he presents an informed, compelling and complete portrait of Ginsburg’s thoughts on the law, civil rights, abortion, the Constitution and the Supreme Court. Their conversations provide fascinating insight into Ginsburg’s brilliance and explain why her victories and outspoken dissents made her an American icon to many and a reviled pillar of liberalism to others.

Others scholars have expressed their admiration of Rosen’s presentation. For example, Jill Lepore, author of These Truths: A History of the United States, said, “Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s vantage on American law and politics is without equal. This collection of interviews, conducted over decades…gets to the very heart of her understanding of the Constitution.” Publisher’s Weekly said, “Rosen’s…straightforward interview style allows Ginsburg’s exceptional legal mind to take center stage.”
