Review quote

"Riveting history."--The New York Times Book Review"The Unpublished Opinions of the Warren Court will be of wide interest and substantial value to the legal profession.

No student of the judicial process can afford to miss this."--Dennis J. Hutchinson, The University of Chicago"Fascinating....A remarkable and beautifully written book."--Choiceshow more
