Praise

Silver Gavel Award Honorary Mention (American Bar Association)

“… a history of the Supreme Court that breathes life into the dry language of the judicial system, that looks behind the cases to the human beings crucial to the cases but long forgotten, that examines the realities of social conflict beneath the surface of legal argument.” –– Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States

“A sophisticated narrative history of the Supreme Court . . . [Irons] breathes abundant life into old documents and reminds readers that today’s fiercest arguments about rights are the continuation of the endless American conversation.” Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)

“This sweeping history of the Supreme Court will thoroughly aggravate anyone who believes, along with Robert Bork or Justice Antonin Scalia that the Constitution should be read narrowly.” –– Kirkus Review
