Arthur J. Goldberg

New Deal Liberal

David Stebenne

This is a solid, well-detailed account of the political career of Arthur J. Goldberg. A prominent and defining figure in the American labor movement, Goldberg served as Secratary of Labor under the Kennedy Administration before being named a justice to the Supreme Court. He was also ambassador to the United Nations during Johnson's presidency. Goldberg was considered one of the most important liberals in American public life in the 1960s and was a major force for reform both on and off the judicial bench. This book places Goldberg's career and its significance in relation to the social and political events of the time.
