9781568029375: The Public Debate Over Controversial Supreme Court Decisions

The Public Debate Over Controversial Supreme Court Decisions explores public reaction to over forty of the most well known and contentious cases ruled upon by the Court. The renowned cases covered begin with those from early in U.S. history, such as McCulloch v. Maryland (1819) and the Dred Scott decision (1857), to recent cases that have fanned the flames of debate over current highly-charged issues such as abortion (Roe v. Wade, 1973) and homosexual rights (Lawrence v. Texas, 2003). The book presents information through a unique integration of essays and primary source documents that bring both context and a sense of immediacy to the cases discussed.
