Gertner, Nancy, Editor. Representative Opinions of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Clark, New Jersey: Talbot Publishing (an imprint of The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.), May 2022. 2 volumes. xvii, 811 pp. ISBN-13: 9781616196639. Hardcover. New. $95. * Edited with introductory material by Judge Nancy Gertner (Retired), this anthology consists of representative opinions from Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's truly extraordinary body of work-both her significant majority opinions and her pointed dissents. It includes the opinions for which Justice Ginsburg was best known, concerning race and gender discrimination, affirmative action, and discrimination on the basis of disabilities, and also those opinions on civil and criminal procedure which, while less known to the general public, figure prominently in law school curricula and litigation across the country. It likewise includes her dissents in the cases that have defined the Supreme Court's recent terms-dissents in the challenges to Obamacare, the case constricting the Voting Rights Act, the expansion of the rights of religious minorities at the expense of the rights of women or LGBTQ citizens, and the cases restricting access to contraception. Simultaneously radical and restrained, passionate but always collegial, the late Justice leaves a body of legal writings that, in her own words, sought to "get it right and keep it tight." This carefully curated anthology serves as an indispensable guide to the legacy of a judicial giant.
