The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court by Jeffrey Toobin
The Oath: The Obama White House and the Supreme Court

lisakaiser23, January 18, 2013

Jeffrey Toobin provides readers with an insightful and compelling view of the relationship between the U.S. Supreme Court and the Obama White House. Toobin writes for non-lawyers. The book is full of great personal stories and information about each of the Justices and about the President as well. Toobin takes the readers behind the scenes of the Court so the reader understands how the Court works and how the lives of experiences of the Justices impact and inform their decisions. And even though readers know how the Court decided on the Constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, Toobin is still able to give that story great suspense and drama.
