    1. The author taught my Federal Courts course last fall. He is the perfect person to write a biography of Justice Powell, given how similar he is to the subject (Virginian, military experience, clerked for Powell, brilliant enough to have replaced Powell on SCOTUS had he felt like it). Each of the essay chapters on a constitutional issue contained golden nuggets concisely summarizing everything law professors spend entire semesters trying to impart about Constitutional Law.

In part, this is driven by the common decision to break apart his judicial career by subject. This seems like a somewhat false way of classifying a career because Powell would have been confronted with multiple iss [...]
