From the New York Times bestselling author Derrick Bell, a profound
meditation on achieving success with integrity.
As one of the country's most influential law professors, Derrick Bell has
spent a lifetime helping students struggling to maintain a sense of
integrity in the face of an overwhelming pressure to succeed at any price.
Frequently asked how he managed to be so extraordinarily successful while
never giving up the fight for justice and equality, Bell decided to spend
his seventieth year writing a book of insight and guidance. The result,
Ethical Ambition, is a deeply affecting, uplifting, and brilliant series
of meditations that not only challenges us to face some of the most
difficult questions that life presents, but dares to offer some solutions.
Using incidents from his own life, Bell also looks to literature, history,
and other contemporary figures who have refused to compromise their
beliefs. In chapters that explore passion, faith courage, inspiration,
humility, and relationships, Ethical Ambition address the most fundamental
issues of life.
Derrick Bell is one of the most highly respected constitutional law
professors in America. He currently teaches Constitutional Law at NYU law
school, and is the author of seven books, including the New York Times
bestseller Faces at the Bottom of the Well.
