Editorial Reviews

Review

The editors and an impressive group of contributors have produced a valuable book. The book’s essays tell the stories behind major decisions of the Supreme Court and examine the causes and effects of the Court’s decisions. As a result, the book provides a rich understanding of the people and processes that shape constitutional law.

(Lawrence Baum, Ohio State University)

I have no doubt that this excellent collection of essays will prove a boon to anyone teaching undergraduate classes in American legal and constitutional development. But I hope that it gains an audience as well among general readers and even, dare I say it, among law students and even their professors, who will all benefit from the ways that the various authors put the cases they discuss within broader social and political contexts.

(Sanford LevinsonProfessor of LawUniversity of Texas Law School, author of Wrestling with Diversity)

Format: Paperback
I've read my own case in this book (Hill v. Colorado, 2000) and believe the author was fair in representing both sides. Unfortunately, of course, the majority of the US Supreme Court made the wrong decision, hence, eroding the Constitutional Freedom of Speech of those holding unpopular opinions. To read the comprehensive, cogent, and correct position, you may find the dissenting opinions of Justices Scalia/Thomas and Kennedy on the Internet.
