Excellent poolitical history of the effort to pack the court by FDR. While strong on descriptions of ppersonalities and political considerations, somewhat weak on legal analyusis of the actual cases which prompted the effort.

This was a great book about FDR and his court packing scheme. The book also included pictures which I always enjoy since it enhances the whole experience. Burt Solomon focused on the court packing scheme of FDR and the people who were involved with it both on FDR's side and the justices involved. This is not extremely in depth about the whole court packing scheme but it is a good read for anyone who wants to learn more of this one snapshot in history.
