From Booklist:

With its thematic approach, this set is generally the most analytical if the least convenient. More than half of the content is devoted to extensive discussions of the Court's decisions as they relate to the federal government and to individuals. The remainder provides detailed descriptions of the Court's history, organization, operation, traditions, and external pressures. The researcher must look up Lemon v. Kurtzman in the index, and then turn to the four or five references within the text. This resource is the most useful for those who want to study the case within a larger context. There is a sidebar on the Lemon test, which excerpts Justice Scalia's 1993 opinion comparing the test to a ghoul stalking the Court.
