Overview

Turning Right: The Making of the Rehnquist Supreme Court by David G. Savage

Based on the author's extensive coverage of the Supreme Court (including personal interviews), it lifts the veil of secrecy surrounding the Court by showing who the justices are and how they make their decisions. Explores the gradual shift of the Court to conservative ideology. Highlights the antagonisms between liberals and the new conservative majority showing how Scalia, Kennedy, Souter and now Thomas have fundamentally altered the Court's philosophy. Major reversals and decisions are covered ranging from abortion and civil rights to the right to die and criminal rights. The future direction of the Court is also discussed.
