ON-Lion Letter
In June 1973, Judge Robert Bork was plucked from a quiet life of academia at Yale University and planted into the tumultuous soil of constitutional crisis by a Nixon Administration on the verge of collapse.

In Encounter Books' new Saving Justice: Watergate, the Saturday Night Massacre, and Other Adventures of a Solicitor General, the late Bork recounts his personal experiences as a member of the Administration during the last half of 1973 and first few months of 1974 -- from the ousting of the Vice President of the United States to the discharge of the Watergate special prosecutor.

Bork also includes further reflections on his unsuccessful nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Ronald Reagan 13 years later.

Encounter Books is an activity of Encounter for Culture and Education, a nonprofit group that is substantially supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.
