Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the end of the 2000 presidential election, the nation saw firsthand the power of the Rehnquist Court when, for the first time in U.S. history, the Supreme Court took a definitive role in the election process. Now, Tinsley Yarbrough provides a comprehensive look at today's Supreme Court Justices and their record. An accomplished biographer, Yarbrough offers incisive portraits of the nine justices who now sit on the high bench, and tellingly reviews their nomination hearings. But the heart of the book is a systematic exploration of the Court's record in such areas as government power, economic regulation, and criminal justice. In decision after decision, the author discusses the various justices' opinions, arguments, and legal theories; he also offers his own analysis — including a sharp critique of the decision to allow the Paula Jones lawsuit to move forward.

Review:

"A splendid book....In addition to its currency, it is informative, entertaining and...provocative." The New York Law Journal

Review:

"Lively and engagingly written throughout." The Law and Politics Book Review
