Here is the famous attorney reminiscing over his long and renowned career, touching on many of his famous trials, including the “Monkey” trial, and landmark civil right cases. Darrow reviews much of America’s legal history with salty humor, courtroom gusto, and human relish. His private life and many contemporary events, including labor conditions, are woven into this story of a man who accepted unpopular cases and defended unpopular causes. This champion of dissenters and underdogs was also a writer and lecturer, and he conjures up many famous people from his life and times.
“He spent his life fighting for ‘lost’ causes, most of which he won”
