Unlike most opinions written by US Supreme Court Justices, says Weizer (political science, Fitchburg State College, Massachusetts), those by Scalia not deadly boring and incomprehensible. This he attributes to the justice being a gifted writer, being remarkably consistent from case to case, and having a unique writing style. He presents 25 opinions he has written, including Bush v. Gore, as examples rather than a representative sample. There is no index. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
