Synopsis

Keeping the Faith is an ambitous and accessible history of the nation's highest court. John E. Semonche demonstrates that the fabric of American constitutional law promotes in citizens a 'civil religion,' or a faith in the laws and institutions of government that is unique to this country. Semonche supports his arguments by analyzing the Court's controversies, members, and decisions from its creation to the present.
