1st edition, 1st printing. 1972. Signed by Earl Warren on half title page. Earl Warren served as Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court in the years 1953-1963. The Warren Court decided some of the most monumental cases in U.S. history, ruling on school segregation, interrracial marriage, the general right to privacy and the rights of criminal defendants. "A Republic, If You Can Keep It" is neither technical nor political; Chief Justice Warren wrote "for general reading, for those who would like to fully appreciate what can and should be done for the preservation of our institutions." Earl Warren often cited Benjamin Franklin's reply when after the signing of the new Constitution a woman asked: "Doctor, what kind of a government have you given us?" "A Republic, Madam, if you can keep it." Near fine condition.
