This long overdue biography elevates Jane Matilda Bolin to her rightful place in American history as an activist, integrationist, jurist, and outspoken public figure in the political and professional milieu of New York City before the onset of the modern Civil Rights movement. When Bolin was appointed to New York City's domestic relations court in 1939 for the first of four ten-year terms, she became the nation's first African American woman judge. Drawing on archival materials as well as a meeting with Bolin in 2002, historian Jacqueline A. McLeod reveals how Bolin parlayed her judicial position to impact significant reforms of the legal and social service system in New York. Beginning with Bolin's childhood and educational experiences at Wellesley and Yale, Daughter of the Empire State chronicles Bolin's relatively quick rise through the ranks of a profession that routinely excluded both women and African Americans. McLeod links Bolin's activist leanings and integrationist zeal to her involvement in the NAACP and details her work as a critic and reformer of domestic relations courts and juvenile placement facilities.

"The heroine of our book, Zebunissa has remained almost completely ignored by chroniclers and historians. In the prime of her life, her father, the Emperor Aurangzeb incarcerated her in the fortress prison of Salimgarh, where she languished for twenty years until her death. Yet before she fell from grace she had been his favourite daughter. Everything about her life seems shrouded in mystery, and historians have tried in vain to penetrate the obscurity of her life. Only her poems give us an indication of her character. She seems to have been a very humane person, with weaknesses, passions, and an indomitable pride, but dressed in the black veils for which she was noted. In the end, with all her learning and experience, she was incarcerated in Salimgarh, with only the high walls, the yellow sand blowing in the hot breeze, and the tepid waters of the Yamuna glistening in the blazing sun. Here, in isolation and anguish, she contemplated, and plumbed the depths of her heart till finally she confronted the infinity of the Creator." --Book Jacket.

'The Bone Shard Daughter is one of the best fantasy novels I've read in a long time . . . it grabs you by the heart and the throat from the first pages and doesn't let go until long after it's over. This book is truly special' Sarah J. Maas The Emperor's reign has lasted for decades, his mastery of bone shard magic powering the animal-like constructs that maintain law and order. But now his rule is failing, and revolution is sweeping across the Empire's many islands. Lin is the Emperor's daughter and she spends her days trapped in a palace of locked doors and dark secrets. When her father refuses to recognise her as heir to the throne, she vows to prove her worth by mastering the forbidden art of bone shard magic. Yet such power carries a great cost, and when the revolution reaches the gates of the palace, Lin must decide how far she is willing to go to claim her birthright - and save her people. The Bone Shard Daughter is an unmissable fantasy debut - a captivating tale of magic, revolution and mystery, where a young woman's sense of identity will make or break an empire. 'A bold, ambitious debut' M. R. Carey 'Epic fantasy at its most human and heartfelt . . . inventive, adventurous and wonderfully written' Alix E. Harrow 'Brilliant world-building, deep intrigue and incredible heart' Megan E. O'Keefe
