From Booklist: This volume is much more than its title implies. Certainly, it is a useful directory to the more than 2,800 men and women who have served on the federal judiciary. Alphabetically arranged entries provide vital statistics and summarize each person's education, professional history, and federal judicial service. They also contain references to manuscript collections for those justices and judges whose primary source material has been collected, making this a valuable reference work for researchers. But in addition to biographical material, the book includes legislative histories, lists of judicial appointments, and a bibliography for each district court, court of appeals, circuit court, and the Supreme Court. The location of each court's official records and Web sources for its opinions are noted. This information is also provided for federal courts of special jurisdiction established under Article III of the U.S. Constitution but not for those that, like the Court of Federal Claims, were created under Article I. One editorial error is puzzling: the introductory section on courts of special jurisdiction states that "biographies of the judges follow the description of their respective courts." No such biographies appear either here or in the main biography section. In fact, neither judges of courts of special jurisdiction nor bankruptcy judges are included in the directory.
The book also discusses and reproduces landmark judicial legislation and, in a section called "Topics in Judicial History," lists interesting facts such as the oldest and youngest judges, first women judges, first minority judges, judges who have been impeached, etc.
Judges of the United States (Judicial Conference of the United States, 1978) provides similar biographical information, but despite plans for periodic revision, it apparently has not been updated. Because the Bernan volume provides 22 additional years of biographical coverage in an easy-to-read format while also offering information useful to serious researchers, law libraries, state libraries and archives, and large academic and public libraries will want to purchase it. Biographical information about current federal judges (including bankruptcy and magistrate judges) can be found in Almanac of the Federal Judiciary (Aspen Law and Business 1984- ). REVWR
