From Publishers Weekly:

Shnayerson, former law editor of Time, provides a tedious examination of this country's highest court through an overview of its landmark cases. His scope is wide, but he does not delve deeply into any single case, even those of most interest (the Scottsboro boys, decisions affecting civil rights and the women's movement). Stale observations appear sporadically ("The Court exudes authority; it is a serious place"). While the pictorial material doesn't constitute an "illustrated history" as the title claims, a generous number of mostly black-and-white photos of documents and personalities of the court are a refreshing respite. And a prefatory color photo section offers glimpses of the awesome architecture of the Supreme Court as well as a look at the justices' barber chair and the interior of their private elevator.

From Library Journal:

Like other histories of the Supreme Court, this survey describes the origin and evolution of the Court and speculates on its future. Personalities, issues, and important cases underscore the story. Unique to this treatment, however, are 380 photographs and illustrations of individuals and documents associated with the Court's history. A delectable selection of color plates at the beginning constitutes a special insider's tour of today's physical facility. The Supreme Court Historical Society collaborated in the making of this book, and the quality, selection, and profusion of illustrations is of a high standard. Shnayerson's narrative breathes life into these pictures. An excellent bargain for most libraries, this rewarding book demands no expertise from the reader. Susan E. Parker, Harvard Law School Lib.
