This introductory chapter discusses the importance of oral histories in determining answers to the questions of who the judges are and what they do. The oral histories feature federal judges who were appointed in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, though there are a few with earlier appointments. Most of the judges featured in this book have achieved senior status, and in many cases, the interviews took place near the end of their lives.
