30 Lawyers, 30 Books: Robert Morgenthau
The End of Anger: A New Generation’s Take on Race and Rage by Ellis Cose
The legendary Manhattan lawyer Robert Morgenthau retired in 2009 as New York County district attorney, a position he held for 34 years. He is now of counsel at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.
“The End of Anger is a masterpiece in illuminating one of the most significant issues in the history of our republic. But it’s more than that—it’s a case study of how our values are transmitted and realized through history, of how social conditioning affects perception, and of how a truly gifted journalist can look at even the most painful realities through a filter of compassion and sympathy. It is one of those books every American of conscience should read.”
