The Supreme Court

Summary: "This book explores the Supreme Court from a variety of perspectives, beginning with how the court does its work and proceeding to look at the current court: the individual justices, their complex interactions with and influences on their colleagues, their jurisprudence -- that is, the principles and philosophies that govern their thinking -- and how their opinions, concurrences, and dissents not only apply constitutional law but shape it."--Preface.
