Not one to shy away from commenting on the legal and political developments around himself, Dworkin was a frequently dishing out pieces from his writing desk for The New York Review of Books. He was awarded the 2007 Holberg International Memorial Prize for his contribution to Humanities through “his pioneering scholarly work” of “worldwide impact.”
