I am about halfway thrugh this book. I learned a lot about the history of the Court from the author. I disagre with his thesis but I think Peter Irons wrote an excellent history. He presented the background of each case discussed and explained the why the Coourt ruled in a particular manner. I learned a lot about theory and different interpretations of the Constitution. This has been a been a very fascinating and educational read.

Definitely an enjoyable, light read that gives the reader a skeleton of U.S. Supreme Court history. Unabashedly biased and intended to be in the tradition of Zinn's 'A People's History of the United States', in this regard it falls short.

Title says it all. Penguin has a good reputation with me for quality history books. This book is no exception. It gives great insight, knowledge, and critique of the impact of supreme court cases in shaping law in the USA.
