David v. Goliath chronicles AAJ’s half century of challenges and accomplishments, from its “humble” conception at a cocktail party in the fall of 1945 to its continuing fight to preserve our civil justice system, trial by jury, and the rights of Americans who have been injured through no fault of their own.
Two experienced members of AAJ's staff tell this story. Much of it based on the personal recollections of 158 leading AAJ members whom Richard Jacobson personally interviewed as he traveled around the country during the 1980's with his tape recorder. Many other shared their personal experiences via telephone conversations and correspondence. Their story recounts AAJ's challenges and setbacks, as well as victories. It truly is an inspirational read!
