Now available with MP3 audio CDS: the bestselling book-and-audio set of Supreme Court oral arguments. Until The New Press first publishedMay It Please the Courtin 1993, few Americans knew that every case argued before the Supreme Court since 1955 had been recorded. The original book-and-tape set was a revelation to readers and reviewers, quickly becoming a bestseller and garnering praise across the nation. William Safire, writing in theNew York Times, called it "a fascinating, you-are-there experience...an ear to history in the making," and theLos Angeles Times Book Reviewdubbed it a "treasure trove." Including both transcripts of the most significant cases argued before the Supreme Court and recordings of the oral arguments,May It Please the Courtoffers "a front-row seat in America's most powerful courtroom, where very, very few have had the opportunity to sit" (American Bar Association Journal ). This new edition of the original volume makes the recordings available for the first time in MP3 audio CDs. The audio for this new edition is on MP3 compact discs. MP3 audio books on compact disc can be played on newer CD players that support MP3 technology and accept a standard-sized CD, and on any personal computer that has Apple's iTunes, Microsoft's Media Player or similar software.

Peter Irons is professor of political science at the University of California, San Diego. He lives in San Diego, California.
