Sinopsis: The impact and ramifications of cases argued before the Supreme Court are felt for decades, if not centuries. Only the most important issues of the day and the land make it to the nine justices, and the effects of their decisions reach far beyond the litigants. Under discussion here are five of the most momentous Supreme Court cases ever. They include Marbury v. Madison, Roe v. Wade, Dred Scott, Brown v. Board of Education, and The Pentagon Papers. An absorbing exploration of enormously controversial events, the series details, highlights, and clarifies the complex legal arguments of both sides. Placing the cases within their historical context (though they ultimately emerge as works in progress), the authors reveal each decision's relevance both to the past and the present. The result is a fascinating glimpse across the centuries into the workings of the Supreme Court and the American judicial system.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 Up - These titles provide concise information about landmark court decisions. Each one gives an overview of the events surrounding these decisions and the people involved in bringing the action to the courts. In addition to the main texts, occasional red pages give readers easy access to additional information. For example, each volume includes a "Through the Court System" sidebar that outlines the legal process from the state level to the various appeals before reaching the Supreme Court. Related human-interest stories, such as a passage about six-year-old Ruby Bridges integrating a New Orleans school in 1960 in Brown v. Board of Education,are also included. Black-and-white and a few color photos are included. The format of the books makes them easy to read and understand. Valuable resources for reports or for anyone wishing to learn more about these milestones. - Denise Moore, O'Gorman Junior High School, Sioux Falls, SD
