This posthumous memoir offers a look at a high-profile, high-stakes American practice and at the progress of law and politics over the last half of the 20th century. Arthur Liman was renowned both for his abilities as a corporate lawyer and for his commitment to public service and pro bono work. In this candid memoir, written in the months before his death, Liman recalls many of his most controversial, highly publicized cases, including his investigation of the Attica prison uprising, his role as chief counsel in the Iran/Contra hearings, and his defence of junk bond merchant Michael Milken.
