As the highest tribunal for all cases and controversies arising under the Constitution, laws, and treaties of the United States, the Supreme Court functions as the pre-eminent guardian and interpreter of the nation's basic law. The story of the Court is, however, more than the sum of cases it has decided or the justices who have decided them; it is the story of the country as a whole, in war and peace, in prosperity and depression, in harmony and discord. These ten volumes show the scope of the Court's interest as a legal, political and cultural entity. They address basic issues in the American constitutional system, such as separation of powers, federalism, individual expression, civil rights and liberties, the protection of property rights and the development of the concept of equality.
