Totally revised and updated, this classic history of the 110 members of the U.S. Supreme addresses the vital questions of why individual justices were nominated to the highest court, how their nominations were received, whether the appointees ultimately lived up to the expectations of the American public, and what their legacy was on the development of American law and society. Enhanced by photographs of every justice from 1789 to 2007.
