Textbook X, 287 Pages

Summary

Greatness and leadership are two ideas that often intersect, especially in the imagery of leading the pack of more than one hundred Supreme Court justices. Despite differences in interpretation, there are points of agreement concerning the names of the most remarkable people who have been and are the leaders of the pack. This book clarifies constitutional law and the history of America’s highest bench by exploring the personalities and times of sixteen justices, from John Marshall to Sandra Day O’Connor and William H. Rehnquist.
