Synopsis

This second edition of "The Supremes" introduces readers to the Supreme Court's newest members, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito, with vivid biographical sketches and riveting accounts of how they successfully navigated the politics inherent in judicial appointments. Compelling portraits of all nine justices are completely updated, with clear explanations of their votes and opinions in landmark cases involving free speech, religion, capital punishment, gun control, affirmative action, privacy, abortion, and terrorism. Never has the Supreme Court's story been so lively or so relevant!
