Description:

From the 1987 televised Senate Judiciary Committe hearings on President Reagan's nomination of Robert Bork to the Supreme Court to the recent hearings on President Bush's nomination of John Roberts to become Chief Justice, it is clear that Americans' interest in how the Court's rulings on social issues might affect their lives is at an all-time high. Today, similarly-concerned students enroll in courses on American Government, the Supreme Court, Constitutional Law, Introduction to Law, and the American Judiciary as never before. In this brief book, Jack Fruchtman Jr. provides for these courses an anthology of edited rulings from the Court -- some landmark, many contemporary, along with topic introductions and case head notes. Here, students will examine the Court's own words, logic, and thinking on the major issues of the day, among them, freedom of speech, separation of church and state, law enforcement, affirmative action, gender discrimination, abortion and privacy. - Back cover.
