Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In June 1973, Judge Robert Bork was plucked from a quiet life of academia at Yale University and planted in the tumultuous soil of constitutional crisis by a Nixon administration barreling toward collapse. From the ousting of Vice President Spiro Agnew to the discharge of the Watergate special prosecutor, an event known as the Saturday Night Massacre, Saving Justice offers a firsthand, insider account of the whirlwind of events that engulfed the administration during the last half of 1973 and the first few months of 1974. This important volume provides a revelatory look into the inner workings of the Justice Department during some of the most consequential months of the Nixon administration.

Synopsis:

In June 1973, Judge Robert Bork was plucked from a quiet life of academia at Yale University and planted into the tumultuous soil of constitutional crisis by a Nixon Administration on the verge of collapse. From the ousting of the Vice President of the United States to the discharge of the Watergate Special Prosecutor, Bork recounts his personal experiences as a member of the Administration during the last half of 1973 and first few months of 1974. The author also includes further reflections on his unsuccessful nomination to the Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan thirteen years later.

About the Author

Robert H. Bork, who died December 19, 2012, was the author of two New York Times best sellers, Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline and The Tempting of America: The Political Seduction of the Law, and several other books, including A Time to Speak, Coercing Virtue: The Worldwide Rule of Judges, and The Antitrust Paradox: A Policy at War with Itself. A Distinguished Fellow of Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., and formerly the Tad and Dianne Taube Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Bork served as the United States solicitor general from 1973 to 1977. Before becoming a partner in the law firm of Kirkland and Ellis, Bork served in the United States Marine Corps. He taught for nineteen years at Yale University Law School and was named to the Alexander M. Bickel Chair of Public Law in 1980. Bork was the circuit judge of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit from 1982 to 1988, and a distinguished scholar at the American Enterprise Institute from 1988 to 2003. At the time of his death, he was a Senior Fellow at Hudson Institute.
