I enjoy this book but I think Im an on my own island here. I read this because I think our country and its laws have gone off the deep end. It contains all of the Major Supreme Court decisions and unless you like that sort of thing, you will hate this book. Pretty dry, but it will allow you to see why we have to laws and case standings that we do have.
Great information and well-organized. All super-important cases and countless minor cases are touched on in this book, as well as a great number of the people, situations, and laws that have had an impact on the United States Supreme Court.
