Summary
  • Set: A look at the history, impact and drama of The Supreme Court, focusing especially on the personalities of America's highest court
  • One nation under law: "Examines the creation of the Court and follows it through the brink of the Civil War, paying particular attention to the fourth chief justice of the Supreme Court - John Marshall - and to his successor, Roger Taney" -- Set container
  • A new kind of justice: "Explores the issues before the Court from the aftermath of the Civil War through the 1930s. This was a period of unprecedented economic growth as the nation industrialized but was also a time of unregulated work conditions - the court found itself squarely in the middle of what was almost class warfare" -- Set container
  • A nation of liberties: "Focuses on the Court's reaction to state and federal legislation on Bill of Rights freedoms, with special attention to the explosion of civil rights cases from the early 1940s to the present" -- Set container
  • The Rehnquist revolution: "Details the court from the election of President Richard Nixon - who appointed 4 new justices in less than two years - through to the more recent Court of today. During this period one man put his stamp on the institution and solidified and enhanced the power of the Court in the modern area" -- Set container
