What Alan Dershowitz is reading

I’m reading The Real Anita Hill and Strange Justice, for a novel I’m writing about the Supreme Court confirmation process. I’m also writing a book about the future of Jews, for which I’m reading Judah P. Benjamin: The Jewish Confederate, by Eli Evans, and Jewish Wisdom, by Joseph Telushkin. I’m also reading the Faye Resnick book (Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted) for work, but I’ve had to hold my nose through most of the process. I’m rereading John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty, to make sure that I’m still a liberal. I’ve also been reading Politically Correct Bedtime Stories to my kids.

(Alan Dershowitz is a consulting lawyer for the O.J. Simpson defense team.)
