Emanuel 75L Lands Among Best Authors of 2011 in The Atlantic

Anne Emanuel 75L was among a handful of authors named by CBS News’ legal analyst and editor Andrew Cohen whose writing “helped improve my understanding of the way the world works.”

In his 2011 review of books published on The Atlantic site, Cohen lauds Emanuel’s book, Elbert Parr Tuttle: Chief Jurist of the Civil Rights Revolution, which examines the life of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals judge and his landmark work on civil rights cases. Emanuel is a professor at Georgia State University School of Law.

In an Atlantic column published the same day, Cohen also cited Tuttle’s book in a biting answer to “judge-bashing” by Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich 65C.

“Anne Emanuel's important new book, Elbert Parr Tuttle, Chief Jurist of the Civil Rights Revolution, reminds us that some legal conflicts are destined to come down to a judge and an angry mob,” Cohen wrote.
