An inside look at the workings of the Supreme Court written by a top scholar and commentator.The Supreme Court may appear to be a less political body than Congress or the executive branch, but in fact it is a fundamentally political institution. David M. O’Brien shows students how the Supreme Court is a “storm center” of political controversy, where personality, politics, law, and justice come together to help determine the course of public policy.
