Ignorance of basic civics is prevalent in American society today with three-quarters of the population unable to distinguish the difference between a legislator and a judge. Many can’t name the three branches of government even though they can name a television judge on American Idol. Most interesting are sections where Breyer describes how the Supreme Court arrived at famous decisions, most good and accepted by the public but a few quite bad. Breyer is informative as he describes the decision-making process.
