<:st> The first edition (1979) is cited in "BCL3"; the second was
published in 1970, so it was high time for an update. Coverage
encompasses all major cases, along with discussion of the Court's
origins, evolution, function, issues, impact, and people. Now
expanded to two volumes, this edition includes some 150 new cases
through the 1995-1996 term; biographies of all new justices; and
additional explanations of the Court's work. A reference materials
section contains selected documents, texts, and tables and figures,
including the full text of five landmark rulings and chronological
summaries of some 400 major decisions. The page design is friendly,
with boxed features and b&w illustrations.
