THE CONTINUITY OF CHANGE is a history of the Warren and Burger Courts. It examines the way the two Courts interpreted the meaning of certain basic rights between 1953, the year Earl Warren became Chief Justice, and 1986, when his successor, Warren Burger, resigned. Urofsky chose this period because the decisions of these two Courts marked one of the greatest expansions in the meaning of American liberties in our history..The central theme of this book is that the Warren Court was never as radical as its critics charged nor was the Burger Court as conservative as its detractors claimed. Urofsky maintains that there was, in fact, far more doctrinal continuity than change between the two Courts.
