Review quote

"It is a treasure trove of information and insights about the Warren Court and its times as seen by judges, clerks of the Justices, attorneys, journalists, and professors....Especially noteworthy are the 'Personal Remembrance' by Justice William Brennan and essays by Anthony Lewis, David J. Garrow, Judge Richard Arnold, and Kermit Hall. This book is highly recommended as one of the best available on the Warren Court and its impact on the U.S."--Choice"The best of these essays remind the reader how important the decisions of the Warren Court were and that it is impossible to understand the Warren Court without reference to its successors....[They] offer thoughtful and rigorous analyses of the Court's decision-making and useful insights into the approaches to legal analysis that the Justices adopted....[The book's] best chapters...capture what is important and what we should know, and present that material in a clear and effective manner."--The Law and Politics Book Review..".there is also critical analysis, sometimes heated, in this valuable addition to the literature"--The Supreme Court Historical Society Quarterlyshow more
