The premise of this study is that judicial sobriety has been underappreciated in scholarship and commentary on the Supreme Court, and this underappreciation has led to a devaluation of certain justices. The five justices treated in this book - Nathan Clifford, Standley Matthews, Edward White, Fred M. Vinson, and Antonin Scalia - have all exercised sobriety on the bench, and have consequently been dealt with unjustly. This book should be of interest to scholars of political science, history, and law.
