A History of the Supreme Court

the late Bernard Schwartz

Written by one of the most highly regarded scholars of the Supreme Court, this remarkable account provides the definitive one-volume history of our nation's highest court. With impeccable scholarship and a clear, engaging style, Schwartz tells the story of the justices and their jurisprudence--and the influence the Court has had on American politics and society. He ranges from the Marshall Court right up to the present day, offering balanced analyses of the pivotal Warren and Rehnquist courts. Also included are illuminating discussions of such watershed cases as Dred Scott v. Sandford, Lochner v. New York, Brown v. Board of Education, and Roe v. Wade.
