Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Presents invaluable fragments of information about the workings of the Supreme Court of the US....The author offers a fascinating and instructive look at the decision-making practices of the Supreme Court....All students of the Court, of the judicial process, and of recent constitutional history are in Schwartz's debt for these presentations....Highly recommended for college and university libraries."—Choice

"Examines the process that led to ten of the most important decisions of the Warren E. Burger era on the Supreme Court. He embroiders drafts of the decisions with finely detailed commentary on the conferences, the assignment of opinions and the zigzags of consensus....The Unpublished Opinions of the Burger Court has a fascinating tone and scrutinizes incidents of judicial deal-making...At the same time, it explains, uncondescendingly, why the politicking matters."—The New York Times Book Review

"Schwartz' work on the Burger Court's unpublished opinions is a fasciating sequel to his Warren COurt books....The drafts and internal memoranda help explain the workings of the Court: how the justices chane their vote and how final opinions are changed before they finally emerge."—Leon Friedman, Attorney
