Title: Scalia Speaks – Reflections on Law, Faith, and Life Well Lived
Author: Antonin Scalia
By any measure, Antonia Scalia lived an extraordinary life. A Supreme Court Justice for three decades, he transformed the way that judges and lawyers think about the law. Married to his beloved wife, Maureen, for more than fifty-years, a father to nine children, and a grandfather to dozens, he was devoted to his family and his faith. He was gregarious, energetic, and a friend to people of all political stripes.
Over his career, Justice Scalia delivered hundreds of speeches across the country and throughout the world. Scalia Speaks collects for the first time his best speeches, covering topics as varied as the law, faith, virtue, pastimes, and his heroes and friends. Featuring a foreword by longtime friend Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and an intimate introduction by his youngest son, this volume includes dozens of speeches, some deeply personal, and nearly all of which have never been published before.
Americans have long been inspired by Justice Scalia’s ideas, delighted by his wit, and instructed by his intelligence. Scalia Speaks enables readers to encounter the man in full–to understand the legal insights that made him one of the most important justices in the Court’s history and to learn from his broader insights into a life well lived.
This timeless book is perfect for any reader interested in a man and mind that helped shape our nation.
