Kunstler's radical critique of American racism and the legal system and his involvment in high-profile and controversial cases have often made him an unpopular figure. Defending those most loathed by mainstream, conventional America, William Kunstler delighted in taking on fiercely political cases, usually representing society's outcasts and pariahs free of charge, and often achieving remarkable courtroom results.;What ideological and tactical motives explain Kunstler's obsessive craving for media attention, his rhetorical flourishes in the courtroom and his instinctive and relentless drive for action? How did Kunstler migrate from a comfortable middle-class background to a life as a staunchly rebellious figure in social and legal history? In this book, David Langum's portrait gives depth to the already notorious breadth of William Kunstler's life.
