Students, policy makers, lawyers, and researchers in many disciplines often require information pertaining to U.S. Supreme Court decisions. Janousek's new edition of this immensely valuable work will simplify the process of finding excerpts and commentary on every Supreme Court decision, as well as the texts, whether in government documents or reprinted in other sources, of the decisions themselves. This third volume in the series covers the literature from 1980 to 1995, indexing discussion and analysis in both monographs and periodicals of Court decisions from its earliest days.
The volume is divided into five major parts: a bibliography of nearly 600 titles; a listing of over 300 periodical titles; a chronological list of the court decisions, each with a citation, a date, and a list of relevant secondary works; an alphabetical listing of parties involved in each case; and a subject index to the topics discussed in the various cases.
Reviews of Previous Editions:
"Quicker to use than either United States Reports or the United States Supreme Court Reports, lawyer's edition, this guide is especially recommended for undergraduate students of U.S. constitutional law. However, its clarity and excellent subject index make it useful for anyone interested in the U.S. Supreme Court cases covered in the guide." —CHOICE
"Not every library has, or indeed needs, a long run of the United States Supreme Court Reports, yet most libraries own anthologies of notable decisions. [This book] indexes not only these anthologies but also case discussions that appeared in books and periodicals—just the sort of information students often find more helpful and intelligible than the texts of the decisions themselves. It is impossible to overestimate this index's convenience value to students and laypersons."—WILSON LIBRARY BULLETIN
