Summary

Over the past decade, the central front of America's bitter culture wars has been the titanic battle over the composition and direction of the United States Supreme Court. No journalist has been closer to the action-from the series of Republican nominations that proved so disappointing to conservatives to the bruising battles that led to the appointments of Justices Roberts and Alito-than ABC News correspondent Jan Crawford Greenburg. In this explosive book, she draws on all of her formidable resources to give a brilliant, vivid account of the struggle for the soul of the nation's highest court-one of the most momentous political watersheds in recent American history. Book jacket.
