Featuring Marbury v. Madison, Dred Scott v. Sandford, Miranda v. Arizona, Brown v. Board of Education, and many more, this text covers foundational rulings and more recent decisions.

About the Author:

Melvin I. Urofsky is professor emeritus of history at Virginia Commonwealth University. He is the author of numerous books, including the award-winning Louis D. Brandeis: A Life.

Review:

This is a terrific book. It succeeds in placing each case in historical perspective and in bringing to life the individuals who were involved. Urofsky is thoughtful, fair-minded, and balanced, and yet does not hesitate to offer his own judgment about the cases and the decisions. Superbly well done.”
Richard Polenberg, Cornell University

The writing is very accessible and Urofsky shows that real people with often complex histories are involved in Supreme Court cases.”
John E. Semonche, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

[Urofsky's] engaging narrative highlights details about the cases that are often overlooked [and] his unique analysis integrates historical fact, political assessment, and legal reasoning in a way that should inform and fascinate court novices as well as veteran constitutional scholars. Perhaps most importantly, Urofsky's discussion explains the impact of the Court's decisions on the litigants and lawyers, the political and legal systems, and the culture and nation at large. Highly recommended.”
