288 pages

The book traces the history of the US Supreme Court by illuminating the antagonistic positions of key players (mostly justices) on the important issues of the time. It thereby focuses not on the legal theory or doctrine, but very much on the human factor and the personalities shaping the events. It rounds off the examination with an interview with Chief Justice Roberts, attempting to plot the path into the future of the court.
