A judge-made revolution? This seeming oxymoron is exactly what the Supreme Court under Chief Justice Earl Warren achieved. This book is the first retrospective on the Warren Court--a detailed analysis of the Court's accomplishments by well-known judges, professors, lawyers, and popular writers such as Anthony Lewis, David Halberstam, and David J. Garrow. The book is divided into three parts: Part One looks at the Warren Court's decisions in different fields (equal protection, freedom of speech, press, criminal law, etc.); Part Two, The Justices, is an intimate look at the principal protagonists in the Court's operation; and Part Three, A Broader Perspective, looks at the Court from a historical perspective, its impact on the legal profession and jurisprudence, its international impact, and its legacy, as well as a rare personal reminiscence by Justice William J. Brennan. The papers are both readable and informative, and they provide an invaluable compendium for anyone interested in the Court that did so much to change America.
