The Warren Court: Justices, Rulings, and Legacy (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


A survey and analysis of the historical context, key figures, and lasting legacy of the Warren Court.

Earl Warren served as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1953 until the end of the tumultuous 1960s. This book shows why conservative critics still view this court as out of control and leftist, while its liberal fans still cheer what they view as the court's progressive activism.

Among this court's contributions to American life are the rights accorded to the accused in Miranda v. Arizona, the limits it placed on school prayer, and the abolition of school segregation in Brown v. Board of Education. To understand such basic American principles as equal protection, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, separation of church and state, the rights of the accused, and the right to privacy, every citizen should understand the Warren Court.

Significant background on the New Deal origins of the Court's legal philosophy

Survey of the Court's decisions in seven areas: equal protection, reapportionment, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, religion, rights of the accused, and privacy
