For five years, law professor Norman Silber sat down with Judge Guido Calabresi in a New Haven recording studio once a week as part of Silber’s oral history book on the life of the federal appeals court judge.

Published this January, “Outside In: The Oral History of Guido Calabresi” checks in at over 400 pages, covering everything from Calabresi fleeing Italy as a child with his anti-fascist parents before WWII to his nearly 30-year career on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
