The Burger Court and the Rise of the Judicial Right

I gave a brief partially negative review of this book and hold to it. But, it covered a lot of ground in a easy to read fashion, plus there were some interesting internal bits too. The story also shows how the courts are not complete independent from both the public and the political branches, the latter by whom is in control when appointments/confirmations occur. Kennedy as a fifth vote today shows just that as does his living constitutional approach.
