Editorial Reviews

Review

"As Ian Millhiser illustrates in his trenchant, persuasive, and profoundly dispiriting book Injustices, the Supreme Court has consistently and unapologetically used its authority to thwart progress and perpetuate inequality." —Slate

Injustices is a compelling rebuke of the Supreme Court and pushes for change. While reforming the Court is not going to be easy...the fact that such well respected legal scholars are now vocally making the case against the Supreme Court is a critical first step.” —Feministing

Injustices is a powerful indictment of the strongest institution of the United States…. A must-read for all Americans.” —The Washington Review of Books

"Interesting and vigorously argued... Millhiser illuminatingly details the human costs of many decisions reached by the Supreme Court..." —Sanford Levinson, The History Book Club

“An eye-opening look at the Court. Accessible to readers with little legal background, this is a powerful study of the branch of American government most often left unchecked…[Millhiser's] findings are startling.” —Shelf Awareness

"An impressive debut offering explanations based on coherence between people, cases and the events they adjudicated." —Kirkus Reviews


“They won't be selling Injustices at the Supreme Court gift shop. Ian Millhiser's scathing, exuberant indictment of the many misdeeds of the nation's highest court is a necessary, and highly entertaining, corrective to the mythology that has always surrounded the work of the Justices.” —Jeffrey Toobin, author of The Oath and The Nine

“More than just an indictment of the Supreme Court, Injustices offers a stirring defense of the role government plays in bettering people's lives—and a heartbreaking window into the lives that are ruined when the justices place their own agenda above the law.” —Ted Strickland, former Ohio governor and US representative

“Attention Howard Zinn fans. Ian Millhiser has written a People's History of the Supreme Court: partisan (in favor of ‘the little people' rather than the elites the Court has favored), passionate, and provocative.” —Susan N. Herman, president of the ACLU
