Description:

The Supreme Court building, like the Capitol and the White House before it, stands as a fitting tribute to the branch of government it houses. In The Supreme Court of the United States, award-winning photographer Fred Maroon captures both the power and the elegance of architect Cass Gilbert's pure neoclassical design, from the magnificent bronze doors depicting the Evolution of Justice to the sumptuous oak-paneled private chambers. Granted access to areas in which photography is customarily prohibited, Maroon reveals the highest court's home in 130 spectacular full-color photographs, while Suzy Maroon's lively and informative text provides the stories of the people and the forces that shaped both the American justice system and the building that would become its symbol. In addition, the book features a history of the Supreme Court itself, as well as a fascinating photo-essay that tracks a petition's progress through the Court. The Supreme Court of the United States is a remarkable achievement, one that will appeal not only to those with a passion for history and architecture, but to anyone who wants to learn more about the building of a nation's hopes and ideals.
