It's been argued that one can never know too much about the U.S. Supreme Court and how it conducts its important legal and political business. Assuming the truth of that premise, this new volume is a fine addition to the growing literature on our highest court. In essence, Wagman has provided an informative, readable guide for the lay reader who wishes to learn more about the Court but doesn't know where to go. He includes a history of the court, profiles every justice, discusses the 100 most significant decisions, and analyzes the direction of the current court. This self-described ``citizen's guide'' to the court and its business makes our least visible branch much more accessible than before. For anyone who wishes ``to draw near'' to the Court, this work is a worthy, able assistant. Especially recommended for public libraries and a nonscholarly audience. For a major scholarly reference, see The Oxford Companion to the Supreme Court of the United States , LJ 9/1/92.--Ed.-- Stephen K. Shaw, Northwest Nazarene Coll., Nampa, Id. (c) Copyright 2010.
