Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Thorough, objective presentations that discuss the events subsequent to famous Supreme Court decisions, the sentiment of the country at the time, and the people involved in the litigation. New York Times deals with the issue of censorship and national security; Miranda discusses the rights of the accused, a subject perhaps of more compelling interest to young people. Herda's book includes an abundance of information, but reads like a textbook; Riley's lively coverage of specific events contributes to the readability of her book. The information is available in a number of reference sources such as Maureen Harrison and Steve Gilbert's Landmark Decisions of the United States Supreme Court (Excellent, 1991). However, the language in these series entries is more accessible to students, making them useful for reports. Both volumes include average-quality black-and-white photographs of key players and documents. Useful additions where there is a need.-Ann M. Burlingame, North Regional Library, Raleigh, NC
