Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"From civil right to religious expression, due process to free speech, the rulings of the Warren Court, while indicative of the liberal idealism of the 1960s, continue to affect and protect American liberties today. Through his thoughtful analysis and adroit research, Michal R. Belknap proffers a vivid retelling of an era that showed us how the highest court in the land could truly serve as an instrument for social change." -William E. Nelson, Judge Edward Weinfeld Professor of Law, New York University School of Law, and author of The Fourteenth Amendment: From Political Principle to Judicial Doctrine

"In a brilliant synthesis, Belknap shows the Warren Court in all its complexity, rebutting both those who would demonize it as well as those who would canonize it. It is far and away the best single volume we have on the Warren Court, its accomplishments, and its legacy of judicial activism." -Melvin I. Urofsky, Virginia Commonwealth University, and author of 100 Americans Making Constitutional History
