Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note:
1. Powerful, irresponsible, and human -- 2. From the gleam in the founding fathers' eyes to the birth of supreme court power -- 3. Government by John Marshall, the great chief justice -- 4. Not states against nation but south against north as the court leans on to war -- 5. The court rides back to power on the nation's surge to the west -- 6. Associate justice Holmes, dissenting -- 7. The court collides with the new deal and wins the battle by defaulting the war -- 8. A court attuned to a liberal key develops its own discordance -- 9. Yesterday's court, the court today, and a court that could be tomorrow.
Summary, etc.:
Appraisal of the Supreme Court and its place in our scheme of government treats the Justices not as law-givers but as men whose motivations are the direct result of their own political beliefs and personal backgrounds.
