From Booklist:

This biographical dictionary of Supreme Court justices through Clarence Thomas is organized chronologically by appointment to the Court. Five-page essays weave biographical data with information on decisions in which the justices played an important role. Each profile contains a black-and-white portrait and other illustrations or political cartoons relevant to the justices' careers. Entries help spotlight lesser-known justices such as Frank Murphy, who wrote a powerful dissenting opinion against the Japanese-American internment.

An appendix contains a chart listing each member's home state, the president who appointed, dates of appointment, years of service, etc. A bibliography lists sources on the Court and individual justices. A detailed index includes references to cases.

This dictionary is not as comprehensive as the five-volume Justices of the United States Supreme Court by Friedman (Chelsea House, 1993), which includes selections of the justices' opinions. Biographies of the justices appear in many other sources as well, from the Dictionary of American Biography to The Oxford Companion to the Supreme Court of the U.S. The advantage of The Supreme Court Justices is that the information is pulled together in a very readable format, useful for students and the general public. It would be a good purchase for high school, public, and undergraduate libraries.
