Bold and Blunt

Mar 16, 2023

It was just over seven years ago that Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia died, leaving a conservative America in shock and sadness. But his legacy lives on -- and, as Scalia chronicler James Rosen says, it's a legacy that will prove him the most influential and important member of the court for the coming 100 years or so. But what of his early life? Of his pre-SCOTUS life? Rosen in his new book, "Scalia: Rise to Greatness, 1936-1986," chronicles some of the characteristics, personality quirks and experiences -- gleaned during interviews with associates as well as during personal lunches and get-togethers with the justice -- that made Scalia, well, Scalia.
