Gr 6-9-A useful work for students needing basic, accessible descriptions of the court's major decisions. The 159 cases included span the years 1803 to 2000 and are organized under major legal topics such as "Individual Liberties" and "Equal Protection and Civil Rights." Each entry, ranging from three to five pages, is introduced by a profile listing the appellant and appellee or petitioner and respondent, attorneys, and justices along with a brief description of the case and its significance. The clear discussions and sidebars that follow include information on the issues and notable figures surrounding the trials. Each volume contains alphabetical and chronological lists of the cases, a guide to how the Supreme Court works, a list of Supreme Court Justices, and the text of the U.S. Constitution. Average-quality, black-and-white photos and reproductions illustrate the set. A good resource for middle school researchers and older reluctant students.
