The class itself, taught by volunteers from our Law School faculty, was one of the best educational experiences I've had in my 75 years. I had very little History or Civics in my youth; most of my education up to the doctoral level was in the biological sciences and (thank heavens) the humanities.
The book is excellent. The authors are impressively credentialed and their writing is meticulous.
The first chapter was a delight. The others (and I read about 25% of them as assigned in our class) are thorough, scholarly and very dense. Summarizing and oversight paragraphs help one see the forest through the trees of cases (Jones v. Smith) and the opinions of individual Justices (there's a lot of Antonin Scalia spouting off with his hostile, narcissistic bulls***! He seems to be a clever but malevolent man who will be recorded in history as a judicial bully).
But I digress. You buy this book if it fills a need. If not you'll wish you could return it. I'd buy it again, and I will consult it as new issues come to the Court and I want to understand the background.
Get Cherminsky's book instead. MUCH more concise.
FFS, Lexis. It's not like legal materials are cheap. Do the right thing and release a corrected PDF version of the Table of Cases.
