The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court

by Jeffrey Toobin

Open iTunes to Buy

Description

Just in time for the 2008 presidential election, where the future of the Court will be at stake, Toobin reveals an institution at a moment of transition, when decades of conservative disgust with the Court have finally produced a conservative majority, with major changes in store on such issues as abortion, civil rights, presidential power, and church-state relations. Based on exclusive interviews with justices themselves, The Nine tells the story of the Court through personalities, from Anthony Kennedy's overwhelming sense of self-importance to Clarence Thomas' well-tended grievances against his critics to David Souter's odd 19th-century lifestyle. There is also, for the first time, the full behind-the-scenes story of Bush v. Gore: and Sandra Day O'Connor's fateful breach with George W. Bush, the president she helped place in office. The Nine is the book bestselling author Jeffrey Toobin was born to write. A CNN senior legal analyst and New Yorker staff writer, no one is more superbly qualified to profile the nine justices.

Customer Reviews

Very engaging

Never got lost in the legalese...... Toobin does an excellent job taking the reader inside the hallowed walls of the court, and does a great job summarizing some of the more recent famous cases heard by the Court. Did not realize how great a justice O'Connor was - and this book will make me read hers next....
