Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debbie Levy
Deftly combining broad-brush explanations (how Article III of the Constitution created the Supreme Court) with up-close details (the 1790 controversy over Supreme Court justices' dress), this fine overview of the U.S. Supreme Court is full of interesting information. Wagner ranges far and wide, covering the early days of the Court, major cases through U.S. history, how the Court operates on a day-to-day basis, how oral arguments proceed, and how the justices decide cases. Some of the most fascinating details are found in chapter 5, "How the Supreme Court Works," and chapter 6, "How a Case Is Decided." Those chapters convey an insider's view of the judicial process that interested readers are likely to find quite satisfying. What do the justices and their law clerks do all day? From among the thousands of requests for judicial review they receive each year, how do they choose the relatively small number of cases that they hear? After the justices hear oral arguments, how do they arrive at their decisions, and how do those decisions get written into formal opinions? This book delivers clear and informed answers to these and many other questions. Part of "The U.S. Government: How It Works" series. Reviewer: Debbie Levy
