This book is Toobin's commentary on the evolution of the Supreme Court from the Reagan administration onward. He starts from what has been characterized as a liberal court, moves to a court that moderates held in check, and ends with the current court ands its decidedly conservative bias. Toobin's reading and writing styles reflect a fascination with the personalities of the justices (some more than others), the politics within the court, and the effect of both on some of the most important decisions of recent years. His narrative style is first newsy, then intense and scholarly, then amused. The abridgment is relatively smooth. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
